    Greetings from US of A

    Kia Ora all. Let's see, I'm not a photographer per see. I do, however, do a bit of projection art and on a whim I bought a Diana camera at a flea market for $5US. I thought it might be fun to tool around with it. I'm a complete newbie and seek advice and suggestions. (I didn't realise how in vogue these toy cameras were till I got it home and Googled. Ouch.) A film source would be spiffy, as the shop nearby doesn't supply 120 film.

    Years ago, I used to do a bit of photography with a Nikon SLR that used film, developing my own black and white pictures. Sold a few things here and there but I've gotten away from that and wouldn't mind dabbling it again, should opportunity (and camera) arise.

    I live in Arkansas for the time being, and like exploring abandoned buildings and ghost towns, when I can. I'm a sucker for trainyards too.

    Seems to be many knowledgeable people here at the forum, I hope to learn much.

    Cheers

    Welcome to APUG. I hope you are able to get back into developing your own film. If your local stores don't stock 120 film, there is a wonderful variety of films available from Freestyle:

    Welcome Sweettea,
    Kia Ora may be a greeting in New Zealand but in Britain it's the brand name of a cheap and nasty Orange cordial that you dilute with water that coats your teeth

    Hello and welcome to APUG! For other film cameras you can try buying used from KEH.
