I've been enjoying the threads here for a week or so now and just wanted to say hello to y'all.
I've been shooting for a bit over 20 years now. First "real" camera was a Leica IIIc my grandfather traded me for my Minolta 110 (I think it was a model 450 or something like that). A few years later it was augmented by a Canon A-1. then an Elan 7, then a couple of (spoken in a whisper so as not to offend) Canon D-SLRs. In the past few months I've picked up a number of medium format cameras on e-bay. I started with a Yashica-D, and quickly moved to a 2x3 Century Graphic (and a couple of weeks ago a Pacemaker Speed). I recently won a 4x5 Pacemaker Speed and my first HP5 sheet film is on its way from B&H today. Looking forward to getting used to it before some hiking trips out west later in the year.
