    Hello from Japan

    Hello from another foreigner in Japan.

    I originally started on film (didn't we all) then moved to digital in 2001. In March of this year I got tired of digital and came back to film. I'm having MUCH more fun than I ever did before.

    It's funny - I've been looking for a film-only discussion place for a while now. Everywhere I go is digital-this and digital-that. It's good to see a film-only place.

    My latest passion is 1950s Japanese TLRs like Yashicaflex, Richoflex, etc. I try to get the results I want with the least amount of money so no Leicas or Rolleis for me

    Nice to meet everyone here!

    Yashicaflex, Richoflex, now that's some heavy name dropping.

    Welcome and hello, film - digital - film. It's a journey isn't it?

    Welcome from Aussie land, and welcome back to film! Just got a Minolta Autocord - very nice, maybe they are cheap in Japan.
