    New to APUG, new to Australia

    Hi,

    I recently moved from Europe to Melbourne. Found this regional group and thought it might be a good idea to join. My main interest is landscape photography for which I use 6x7 cameras. For everything else, I use 35mm rangefinder cameras. I only shoot slide film since I like to see my results projected.

    I am always interested to join any group meetings in my area. It's a pity I missed the Melbourne large format meeting. I could have contributed with a small Linhof 6x9 technical camera which I use with a 6x7 roll film back.

    Hope to meet many of you soon.

    Joachim

    Hi, Joachim, and welcome from Melbourne. There are quite a few of us here in Melbourne and we try to meet reasonably regularly.

    Thanks, Kevin and Shane. I knew about the film prices. Therefore I brought plenty of film from Europe.

    G'day Joachim, from another APUGger.
    Remember always that film is cheaper than a return trip, but if both are equal or competing, keep going until you exhaust one of them!

    Hello Joachim, hopefully you'll find a suitable niche, camera wise, in Melbourne.

    Plenty to see and do and the day trips, let alone weekend trips, are really easy to do for landscape.

    Are you north, south, east or west from the centre?

    Mick.
