    Hello from Aberdeen, WA

    I am Dann Fassnacht (glockman99). I am in Aberdeen, in Washington state, in the USA...(Aberdeen is the hometown/birthplace of the "grunge band", NIRVANA, as well as the "tall ship", "The Lady Washington"...The same ship that was featured in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie(s).).

    I use Nikon 35mm MF equipment (F3HP & FA), and I have to say that it is GREAT to FINALLY find a forum that is dedicated to us "dinosaurs" who still use film cameras!..

    Welcome Dan!
    I felt the same way a couple months back when i found this oasis in the digi desert.
    Back when I used to live in Oly, I passed through Aberdeen a lot on my way up to Ruby Beach to shoot. Nice town ya got there! I live back in NC now but miss western Washington dearly.
    Im also a big fan of Nikon MF gear also. FM3a and F2AS are my babies.
    Take care and hope to see more of you here

    Welcome, Glockman, from the National Capital Area. I do not have a Glock, but I do have Walthers--as well as a few cameras here and there.

    Welcome Dann, how's the fishing up on the Wynoochee River? I've got an F3hp among other formats.

    Curt,

    I know that this is going to sound pretty stupid, but I don't fish. Eventho I'm almost surrounded by some of the best fishing in the USA, I just don't even own a fishing pole. And, it's not because I don't like to eat fish...Fish is one of my favorite foods...I guess even at 54 years old, I still haven't been bit by the "fishing bug".


    The Nikon F3HP...A true masterpiece. The ONLY two changes I'd make to the F3HP is to increase the flash synch up to 1/250th/sec from the SLOW 1/80th/sec that it is, and, I'd increase the top shutter speed up to 1/8000th/sec from its' 1/2000th/sec.
