    Hello film people.

    Hi all,
    I'm a relativley recent refugee from the megapixel wars. After having my 3rd plastic fantastic fail I sulked, got out my old consumer grade P30n and rediscovered photography.
    I was a little surprised to find just how good my inexpensive consumer camera really is. Which inevitably led to finding a Yashica GSN to replace the one I got rid of in favor of the P30n. I like my GSN, It's just so unpretentiuos and technical excellent at the same time.
    Of course once I discovered how low the used prices are I bought another lens, then a body, then another lens, I think you guys know how it goes from here...
    And in the process of all this low budget extravagance i discovered there are still more different types of film in manufacture than I ever knew existed. I'm having loads of low budget/low talent fun just exploring my new toys and the variations available through such as IR film, B&W, slide, color negative etc. There seems to be no end to directions I could go. I'm beginning to feel an interest for medium format, along with large format inkjet printing. I hope to learn a little about these topics here.
    I'm pretty happy to find such an interested and enthusiastic film following online.

    Wow, that was a long hello...

    Welcome back, in a way, MattPC. Start snapping up those film bargain cameras. There are a lot of people whose first camera was a, (dare I mention it ?) digital, and they are now showing interest in film cameras. APS cameras ? - Kicked into touch by digital. Bought a Minolta Vectis S1 with 2 lenses, one of which was the 80-240 apo lens, for the huge sum of £12.50p. We will have to do without food for a week !

    Nice intro Matt. Welcome to APUG! It will feed and nourish your film photography until one day you'll find yourself with a large format system (among many others), handcoating your own paper, and wondering how you got there... ;-)
