    Hello from Finland

    Hello,

    I have been a member of the APUG community for a while, but now it is time to introduce myself.

    I live in Finland. I am father of two kids, a 5-year old boy and my daugter is 8 years.
    It seems that most fellow photographers shoot now digital cameras but there are a group of people here that keeps film as their most preferred format.

    My gear is from Nikon: FM3A that I purchased new two years ago brand new. The F801s has served me well during the 3 years that I have had it. A good camera.

    I am gratefull that we have this kind of an site on the web as the APUG is. One can find a lot of interesting info here with a friendly atmosphere.
    I appreciate this a lot.

    Please find enclosed one of my photos. This one is photographed on Kodak Tri-X 35mm film.

    At the moment I shoot only 35mm film. It is so easy to scan with modest priced equipment.

    Hello Petri, and welcome to APUG.

    There are many other Scandinavians here, and most of us meet in the ScandinAPUG social group.

    Thank you all for the very warm welcome.

    I think I will learn here a lot. Only restriction is the limited time to spend for hobbies. As one has to work and take care of the children - and wife - there are only a few moments for good leisure time with cameras and photography.

    Yeah, that's right. She's blond and a nurse.

    Tack så mycket.
