    Hello fellow film lovers.

    I've been skimming through this forum for a little while now and should probably introduce myself. I'm amazed and so appreciative at the wealth of knowledge here. It's incredible. I mainly shoot 35mm with my two ME Supers. But I also enjoy hunting through thrift stores for bargain cameras and have acquired a couple Polaroid land cameras and vintage medium formats taking 620 or 120 film. Though my experience is pretty limited with MF, I really hope to shoot some more 120 film in the near future. I love film because it constrains me to be patient and working in a darkroom is the only way I can relax. I'm sure most of you can relate.

    Thanks again to everyone contributing here. I hope to learn lots in my endeavors and to possible share what I've learned to help out, as well.

    I am jealous. You have two ME Supers. Great little cameras. Welcome to APUG.
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.

    It is calming, isn't it? Plus the excitement of seeing 24 or 36 never-before-seen images when the roll is developed.

    Absolutely.

    And welcome from just down south of you, in the Sultan/Monroe area part way up Highway 2 headed to Stevens Pass. Lots of people from Washington state joining lately.

    Love?

    Funny word really, I suppose I do, but I use film for the simple and practical reason that it produces the results I need and I still have my old commercial darkroom, transported to the south west when I moved to the forest

    I shoot mostly Canon full-frame digital, Canon 35mm EOS and pre-AI Nikon, but I've always been fond of the ME Super.

    Hi Cameron, a pleasure to meet you. Lots of great info here for sure, on just about every photography process under the sun. I enjoy hanging out at this place when I get the chance. Pretty area up there where you're at. I was raised in SouthEast Alaska, on Wrangell Island to be exact, and we took the ferry to Prince Rupert, BC and then drove down through your way quite a bit.
    Have a great weekend!
