Hello everyone, i'm Ben. I've always been interested in photography, owned a good few antique cameras since I was in my early teens but never tried them out with film. I started in photgraphy with film about 2 years ago, But I am far from proficient, I have taken about a dozen rolls of film, Kodak Max400, Ultramax800, Fuji Superia 200 and 400, and Ilford xp2 BW. My first rolls were some that came with the Olympus from a yard sale, they expired in 2007 but the shots came out great barring the horrible effect on sky. Anyone here familiar with or currently use either of the SLR's I mention here?

He's my gear.
