    new member here....

    new member here. just sayin hi!
    have loved photography my whole life. recently i got in to devloping film myself and scanning it. not the greaest of equipement, but works for me.
    as for cameras, right now i got a minolta XG-m that i love, and a ww2 robot luftwaffe camera that i bought as an investment, and i can seem to bring my self to sell it!
    i find myself draw to street photography, and found out that i love the vintage stuff, before electronics.

    i find my self wanting a zorki 1 camera, with the collapsable lens, but dont like the f3.5. the robot on the other hand, is auto and has an f2...... arrg.
    im probly going to sell the robot lufewaffe and get another camera, but not sure witch one.....sigh.

    anyway, just saying hi!

    Welcome to APUG. You will find no shortage of opinion and advice on which camera to buy and what to do with it.

    Hey, you sound like you have become infected with the film bug. It is a great one to have, I can tell you. Welcome aboard. Don't be a stranger. Don

    Nemoskull, welcome to the madhouse: you will find, over time, the meaning of GAS and why an elmar beats a tessar but not a sonnar: and a Heliar beats them all, except a Summilux. You may become obsessed with hunting the Russian 85 f1.5 or the Olympic Sonnar or the 35 f2.8 Summaron. Take my advice and just take pictures and don't obsess about stuff

    Welcome to the forum.

    Do you have a Messerschmitt to go with your luftwaffe camera? That would be so cool!

    It's nice to have another FSU camera admirer around. That way when the time comes that I need to scrounge for parts . . . I know who call. ;-)

    I don't know how you plan to acquire your Zorki 1, but I have had all-around good experiences with the Ukrainian and Russian vendors that I've used through eBay. Their ratings seem accurate. I had one vendor even include a nice postcard of the Museum of Art in Kiev in a package. I thought that was nice. I'm currently waiting on a Zorki 4, and hope to see that in a couple weeks. I can understand your interest in the Zorki 1, and I should add one my to collection also. That would make a collection of two.

    Hello and happy APUGGing!
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
