    Hello from Phoenix, AZ!

    Hello from Phoenix, AZ! I am a primarily digital shooter up until this point, but I really wanted to try out 35mm film for some personal projects, so I have picked up a couple of 35mm rangefinders (Canonet QL17, Yashica Electro 35 GSN, Minolta Hi-Matic 7s) to play around with and see how it feels.

    I am a portrait and street shooter primarily, but I am still really finding my niche and, of course, still learning. My wife has even noted that she thinks I finally found a hobby I have a passion for and I am sticking with

    Welcome to APUG. It's good to have you here. If you should find yourself in need of answers to film-related questions, there is probably no better place online to find them than APUG. The volume of film-based expertise available is truly staggering and those who have it are always very willing to share. Please don't hesitate to ask. Hopefully your wife is correct.



    The Canonet QL17 is a wonderful little 35mm rangefinder. I own one myself. I purchased it from a fellow member here for a very fair price. It has become my favorite 35mm carry-around camera.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm out there shooting every year or so as my parents live there. Must be getting a little hot by now tho to be cruising for shots.

    It is a bit warm. I'm going "home" to Michigan in the fall and I'm really planning on putting these film cameras through their paces when I am there for a couple of personal projects.
