Hello from Massachusetts

Just wanted to give a quick hello to the group. I have a Pentax 645N that I received for free with 5 lenes, and five 220 backs. This is my first Medium format camera I have always shot 35mm since 1977. I have two rolls of Fuji 160 film on its way from B&H, and can not wait till they get here. My local lab still will develope 120 & 220 film at a reasonable cost and 45 cents per 4X6 print. I look forward to taking part in the forum see you later.

Welcome, and that's a nice gift! It's good that you still have a functioning lab nearby. Of course you could do your own film processing, but color printing is non-trivial -- or it was the last time I tried, with Ciba chemistry. Hmmm, that would have been in... 1977! Anyway, we await your contributions. Cheers!

Please forgive me for hating you and your free camera setup. [1]

I'm from Mass, too. There's a couple of us that lurk on the forums here if you keep your eyes peeled.

Very good on the AM coffee! Coffee or tea is there really any time not to have them? Remember it is always morning some where on the planet.... Thanks for the welcome and have a great day.
