I suppose I can introduce myself here. My name is Matt Mosh, I've been dabbling in photography since I was a kid. Recently my interest became much more sparked so to speak. I've been using a Fuji S1 or more often my S5000 since it's smaller and more convenient. Just last week though my dad gave me his Minolta XG-1 that has been collecting dust for quite a few years. he purchased it just before I was born, and has given it to me just before my twin boys will be born. It is exciting in a lot of ways heh. The XG-1 took pictures of me when I was a baby and now it will do it for my kids. It has really got my interest back in taking pictures. I hadn't used a film camera since a class in high school. It has been about 10 years or so. So after wrecking a few rolls a film and fiddling with a fussy advance lever I couldn't be more excited. After reading some threads here, I've already learned a lot and hope to learn a lot more.
