    Hello from the Netherlands

    Just joined APUG and wanted to introduce myself.

    I have been involved with photography for a long time, used to run the darkroom and teach processing when at university around 20 years ago, but moved to digital in the late 90s. 2 years ago I got bitten by the film bug again and started shooting with a Leica M6, later adding a digital body as well, and have just purchased a Bronica SQ-Ai which I will hopefully be receiving in the next couple of days.

    For anyone interested, I update my Leica blog at http://leica-m.photography, and will hopefully be able to post some MF images on the forum soon.

    I liked the bw images too much but color ones looks wrong or over processed or you use ektar film. I dont know but its strange looking colors.
    But bw is very successful , color images seem to me created to get lots of colors and synthesized , not good. We do process the color images but to overcome of not fresh film , out dated developer or scanner glass. I used 8 leicas in 20 years and not get such colors , even close to it.
    Forget your digital habits , use portra and trust your lens. Leica creates excellent colors but not Summilux also. Buy an Summicron and try again.

    I'm not sure I understand? Are you talking about my photos, or about Leica in general, or are you accidentally replying to the wrong thread?

    Hello Simon and welcome to the APUG site. Glad you found your way back to film usage, both B&W and color too.

    Hello Simon,
    Welkom op APUG ;-)
    You'll have fun with the Bronica. I use a Bronica SQ-B for several years now and it's a fine piece of equipment.
    Quite something else if you compare it to the Leica (just don't and use both). I love the square format.
    Try some Ilford FP4+ and some Fuji PRO-400H (formerly: NPH400) roll film and you'll be a happy shooter.
    http://www.colorutrecht.nl is one of the last decent prof labs to develop and print film in Holland, but maybe there is still someone left in/near Amsterdam for you?
