    Signing in from Chapel Hill/Carrboro, NC!

    Hello gang, my name is Ray and I currently live in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area of NC. I have been a dedicated film lover since around 1997 or so. Its so nice to finally find a home dedicated to traditional photography! This is like finding a glass of ice water in the middle of the desert. I cant wait to start spending lots of time here! (Right after work!)

    Welcome, Ray. I just recently moved to Florida after spending 6 years in CH. I miss Southeastern Camera in Carrboro a lot. I haven't yet found an equivalent here in Tampa for film, paper, and chemistry, and most importantly, service. Those guys are great!

    Thanks for the welcome! Charles, nice to meet you! To answer your question, my primary (only) cameras these days are Nikons. I have two, an FM3a and a beautiful F2AS. I use the FM3a for fast shooting as it offers aperture priority AE if I want it. The F2AS is my favorite for most everything else though!! They just dont make them like that anymore!

    Jeff nice to meet you as well! Richmond sure has a great down town for cityscapes! I need to get back up there one of these days and do some shooting!

    ignatiu5, hows the weather down there!! Sorry to hear you haven't found a place in Tampa yet. Funny you mention Southeastern Camera! I have been working in the photo industry since 1999 and have been working with Tony (the owner of SEC for several years also). I actually work at the Carrboro location as we speak! They finally had an opening here so I dont have to commute to the Raleigh location anymore! I agree the guys here are great!

    Welcome to APUG, Ray! Chapel Hill is a nice place from what I remember! You're definitely at the 'oasis' here! Good to have you on board!

    Western Mass is beautiful although I havent been up there in 15 or so years unfortunately! Chapel Hill is a great place to be for sure. Very artist friendly place with the University right in town. Living here is kind of an oasis also!
    Thanks again for the welcome!
