    Hi Guys.

    Hello Everyone.

    I've been lurking here for a month or so, and thought I should probably introduce myself.

    I'm a newbie to film and darkroom ( 2-3 Months ) and enjoy it greatly. A guy across the road saw me shooting with the DSLR and gave me an old Minolta he had sitting in the garage.

    In that time I've started developing B/W film and in the last week or two printing with an enlarger I have picked up on the cheap.

    It is great fun being hands on with the analog processes compared to the digital world.

    Thanks.
    Lee

    Thanks everyone.

    Ron. It was a SRT-101, with the 58mm f/1.4 and 200mm f/3.5 lenses, plus a 2x teleconverter. The meter seems to work well and the photos come out pretty good. I just have to get used to the focus.

    Lee - hello and welcome to APUG from western Massachusetts USA. An SRT-101 was my first real camera, a nice outfit... sometimes I wish I still had it.
