Hello APUG'ers,

A recently rekindled love for photography and film led me to this forum and although I probably won't be posting much I thought I'd take a moment to say hi.
I first started shooting film for fun with my father's Pentax P50, without knowing anything. I just shot a roll or two and put the camera back in the attic. It remained there for a good couple of years. The last two years I have been back at shooting film and investigating the different types of film. Still I don't shoot film very often, since it is expensive for a student to do so. However seeing your neg's come out the way you intended is something very satisfying, so I try to shoot film as often as I can (I also own a heretical dslr). At the moment my collection is as follows:

  • The aforementioned Pentax P50 with a Chinon 50mm f/1.7 and a Pallas 28mm f/2.8 (there's also a 70-200 zoom somewhere, but I don't use it).
  • Minolta Hi-Matic GF aka "The Pubcam"
  • Brownie Six-20 Model C

Then my girlfriend owns an Ensign Ful-Vue (her grandfather's). This and the Brownie introduced me into MF. The neg's look amazing, but what they have in character they lack in most other areas such as sharpness. Therefore I'd love to get a nice 6x6 (or 6x7) set once.
