Hello from Paris, France
I'm a 33 years old free lance graphic designer, practicing photo as a hobby since at least 10 years. I started photo in an unusual way as you can see in my little chronological list of cameras :
Lubitel 6x6, still in hand, out of order but converted into a perfect pinhole camera (I like pinhole cameras, I built some in carton or sometime I use my 4x5" chamber) ;
Mamiya C330 F with 55mm, 80mm, 105mm DS, 180mm, resold ;
Rollei 6008 pro with 80mm and 120mm macro ;
Polaroid Land Camera 180 Pro ;
Cambo 4x5" SCN with a 150mm ;
Rollei 35 S ;
Horizon 202 panoramic.
In parallele from that, my little collection of 4x4 with 127 film :
Rollei Baby grey ;
Rollei Baby black pre-war 2,8/60mm 1932, 2nd version ;
Yashica 44A grey ;
Yashica 44 LM grey with non working built-in lightmeter ;
Rollei Baby black pre-war 3,5/60mm 1931, 1st version ;
Yashica 44 LM grey in great condition and working light meter ;
Komaflex S, a 4x4 SLR ;
and waiting for those I just bought on eBay :
Yashica 44 LM black and grey ;
Yashica 44A Lavender.
I'm also well equiped in flash, misc. accessories and dark room.
I hope to be a nice and maybe useful fellow here and share with you that passion we have in common.

Welcome from South Devon and I'm sure your find plenty of passion here (esp. in the forums ... just don't mention digi LOL)
Welcome from the other side of the world; Hawaii.
As you have seen, I don't own any digital cameras and I don't plan to since I recently felt into a 127 cameras collecting frenzy !

Bon Soir, Jean,
Bienvenue d'Illinois! Vous ecrivez bien l'Anglais, comme un natif.
Thank you Konica, your french is not bad too !
Knocking around several english spoken forums makes me practicing my english, but I always have on my desk my good old friends Robert & Collins, a.k.a my french/english dictionnary
