    New to Photography - Newer to Film

    After having a general interest in photography for several years, I took my first actual step into the craft only a few months ago with the purchase of an Olympus E-M5 and several prime lenses. The opportunity to try film presented itself a few weeks later in the form of a Canon AE-1 at a local antique shop. After receiving my first set of prints I was hooked on the look of prints from film. I look forward to learning more about photography from the many talented members of APUG, along with venturing into medium format with a Mamiya 645 Pro.

    I think you can learn a lot here. I know that I do and I've been into photography for many many years. It's good to meet you.

    Welcome, Nathan. You've definitely found a great place to have questions answered and mountains and mountains of resources in the message boards of the last eleven years.

    Hello from the Left Coast, Nathan, and welcome to APUG. You will find the site a wealth of information, populated as it is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic crowd. Read on, join in and enjoy!
    Some Nikons (F6, F5, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.

    Hi Nathan,

    Welcome aboard! The Canon AE-1 is a great little camera. some of the Canon FD lenses are lovely bits of glass too. Tell me - does your AE-1 have the characteristic Canon 'cough' when you release the shutter?
    Cheers,

    Jim.
