    Wow, I'm really glad I found this site. I've participated in a few other photography forums; it'll be nice to discuss photography with folks who don't think of sepia toning as an in-camera function.

    I've been into (obsessed) with photography for the last eight years or so. I've taken some classes, worked in a lab for a while, and been developing and printing BW in my own darkroom. I do some photography for money, but mostly I'm shooting and printing for myself and friends and family. I'd like to earn more money with photography; I can't imagine ever being able to quit my day job, but if I could get the photography to pay for itself....

    I shoot almost all BW medium or large format. Economics drove me to explore "vintage" options, and I fell in love with old cameras. I have a collection of 100+ cameras (some work, some not so work).

    The cameras that I do most of my own stuff with these days are a Rolleiflex 3.5E planar and an Anniversary Speed Graphic with a couple of Schneider lenses. The Rollei is my current love-affair, but late last year and much of this year I was infatuated with MF folders. I did a lot of photography with a Zeiss Ikonta C tessar and an Ansco Titan. I usually use my Pentax 67II for paying gigs (portraits and weddings).

    Anyway, once again, I'm glad I found this place. I'm sure I'll learn a lot.

    Welcome--Glad to see that someone else enjoys playing around with old folders. Regarding Ansco Titan: I've seen some on E-Bay; they usually seem to go for very low to moderate prices. Do you know much about them? Apparently they were sold originally at low prices. Were they made with different lenses? How about lens quality?
