    Hi from Holland

    I already introduced myself on the dutch part off apug but decided to say hi here as well. My name is Peter I am 35 years old and live in Maastricht the netherlands.
    I recently bought myself a Cambo 8x10 technical camera which I thought, when I saw the ad on the internet, was a 4x5 camera. That part of info was not supplied. It is nice to have a choice between three format however.

    Now I am in the process of buying some extra stuff. Filmholder 8x10 and 4x5. Film and also a polaroid holder 4x5 and some film to start experimenting with it.

    Not really sure what I can do with it yet but I would like to give portraits a try and have a go at product photography. The last seems like a good way to make some money with it. But I have no idea so I'll keep hobbying for now and so what comes up next.

    Regards,

    Peter

    Hi, Peter, and welcome from Melbourne, Australia. Wow, that's the first time I've heard of somebody accidentally getting a bigger LF camera than they thought they were getting. You are in the best place to find out more about what you can do with that.

    Hi Kevin, Yeah I was surprised as well. It was a bankrupcy sale of a photostudio so very little information was given. It was a gamble but it payed of beautifully. And tomorrow I'm getting myself a tripod and some other stuff to get going with it.

    Welcome from South Bend. I've been in Amsterdam a few times, but I haven't seen the rest of the Netherlands. I would love to do that.
