    I am new around here.

    Just to introduce myself:
    I am Kevin, a senior in HS
    I am a pilot...and want to pursue aviation (There is someone here that posts some aviation pictures = you're awesome.)
    I am in a photography class, which is B/W

    My dad was a pro. and he gave me all his stuff...which I have tons of questions about. This includes:
    Nikon FM2n
    Nikon 8008
    AF Nikkor 35-70 1:3.3-4.5
    Nikkor 80-200mm 1:4.5
    AF Nikor 50mm 1:1.4
    Nikkor 85mm 1:2
    Bronica Zenza ETRS
    Zenzanon 75mm 1:2.8
    Zenzanon MC 150mm 1:3.5

    I guess I will post questions in another thread.

    Here's my first question (I know nothing)

    I wanted to buy some Velvia for the Bronica and the guy said it is color transparency film...which means? ~Just looking for some info (like pros and cons)

    Welcome aboard, and a very nice list of equipment. I am jealous.

    Color Transparency means slide film.

    I think I would probably end up ruining a roll of slide, just because (especially on a new camera) I am not good enough..

    I think I should stick with print.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    That's cool that you've got a pilot's license. Or at least on your way to one. I've always wanted to pursue one. I've even signed up for a free sample lesson at a local flight school, and got a bunch of stuff in the mail about aviation, but never followed on after it. Maybe some day.
    Anyway, sounds like you might be a good companion for Airic. ;) He does something with aviation (not quite sure exactly what), if you couldn't tell from his name (air + eric I think) :).

    PS: I'm also in HS (a junior).
