I just signed up today after browsing for a little while and thought Iíd say hello. I live in Warwickshire in the UK. My current love affair is with medium format, although I am still working hard at getting the results I want Iím getting better at it and enjoying the experience. The main cameras I use for MF are a newly acquired Rolleiflex 3.5E (which I fell in love with immediately), Mamiya C220 (preferred over the C330 as I like to cock the shutter, Iím not sure why this gives me so much pleasure, it just does) and a Bronica ETRS.
I have a cupboard full of cameras and will quite happily pick up any of them to use, from a cheap plastic toy camera to a decent SLR, Polaroid to an old Hanimex 110, I have no real elitist tendencies, they all give me enjoyment of one kind or another when using them.
I hope, by participating here, to pick up a bit more technical knowledge that will help me in achieving the results Iím after.
Welcome on APUG!
Nice set of cameras you have there. Rollei and Bronica are a recipy for fun and good photos!
I use an old Rolleiflex T2 and a Bronica SQ-B (among others).
Greetings from Bert from Holland
BTW: don't forget to show us your images ;-)
Welcome to APUG from another Rolleiflex aficionado (2.8E shooter here).
Hi Bert, thanks for the welcome. I only recently got my Rolleiflex but went straight away to an event in London and set it up on a tripod to take street portraits of the people there, it was great fun meeting people who all showed great interest in the camera. Here are a few from there, my first with the camera, on Rollei Retro 400s.
Thanks very much, there's nothing not to like about a 2.8E I think :)
