    Hello everyone,

    Lately I've been getting obsessed with film photography, so I thought I'd check this forum out

    Little about me...my name is Tamas, I'm 28 yrs old and I live on Vancouver Island (split my time between Victoria and Nanaimo).

    I started shooting with a Smena 8 (Soviet camera) when I was around 7, then graduated up to my dad's old Zenit 12 XP (still have it!) that I haven't shot with since high school (11 years ago).

    I got really into digital photography and still love that side of the art (shot news for years, weddings, houses, for money and everything else for pleasure), but then somehow I got hooked on film again...here's my current film collection (been really into the Canon FD stuff the past month or so):

    BODIES

    Canon AE-1 Program
    Canon AE-1 original
    Canon Canonet 28
    Zenit 12 XP
    Zenit E
    Ansco Anscoset
    Ricoh XR-P Multiprogram

    LENSES

    ACCESSORIES

    I also have a decent digital collection...anyways...thought I'd say hi :)

    Cheers,
    T.

    Thanks, I posted up some pics from the first roll through my Ansco...they all came out perfectly exposed and clear and sharp, so I'm pretty happy :)

    In the meantime I also picked up another AE-1P with a 50 1.8 and might be picking up yet another AE-1P with a 50 1.8 in the coming days/weeks...this one needs repairs, but I'm pretty happy about that, I love tinkering with old stuff.

    Cheers!
