    Hello from Atlanta

    Glad I found this site. The digital craze is making me crazy. Just purchase a new Canon Elan 7n to go with my Rebel G, AE1, and Bronica ERTS. The only digital in the house is my wifes Canon Powershot A40 we use for Ebay. I just left my old favorite camera store. They have just about completely elimated the darkroom section.(They used to the best stocked darkroom supplier in Atlanta.) I guess I will be buying off the net from now on. I post some ideas in the regional focus groups later on.

    Glad to have you aboard! Maybe you can join us on an outing soon, or if you know someplace interesting, lead one.

    Hi Jody,

    Analog photography in Atlanta sucks these days for the most part. Were you speaking of Showcase perhaps?

    You know you can't even buy a bottle of Rodinal in Atlanta any longer.

    I went to a critique last Wednesday nite and one person was showing contact prints from 5x7 Tri-X. Two people asked what is Tri-X. I kid you not!

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not a vicous rabid anti-digital type as some are on APUG but I just felt sick at my stomach after hearing 2 people ask what Tri-X is. Of course these were people showing ink jet prints.

    Anyway welcome to APUG.

    Welcome to APUG, Jody. Too bad about your local darkroom dealer, but buying online from reputable sources isn't all that bad.

    I was unhappily surprised when I set up a darkroom after several years of being without one. I went back to my favorite camera stores and their once well stocked darkroom shelves had turned into a small pegboard in the back of the store.

    I have to agree with Ralph. The internet offers more variety and economy in materials than any of the local mainstreet photo shops ever did back in the old days.

    Bummer about the Tri-X. I feel like I'm the only one still using film in my club. I'm too cheap to replace my dead printer. (but I'll buy more 8x10 film any day!)

    Welcome Jody from Canada.
    I know what you mean driving you crazy about digital. I belong to a camera club .This year we have about 105 members and I would say 85% members use digital.You can't even talk to the members about anything because topic is always pixel oriented.They look at me funny when we go to field trip I carry my Hassy and 4x5 it takes me 15 min to set up with 4x5 and they say I took 135 shuts HA....I have a function in the club for monthly judging so I'll stay this year but rethink my membership next year .Pity.
    Enjoy your stay

    Regards Greg
    Looking is a gift, but seeing is power.

    Hmmm, Tri-X. Isn't that like the Chinese Mafia, or something?

    I think that "Tri-X" or "XXX" is a rating for pornographic movies.

    Or so I've been told :rolleyes:
