Hello from North Wales, UK

Hi ... Glad to join in this happy band of enthusiasts. May I ramble on a bit by way of introduction?

I've had a Samsung GX-1L for about 18 months, but have been 'into' photography on-and-off since about 1970. The common thread from then, up to my present Pentax SV, is the 'Pentax' M42 mount.

I still like the 'old' ways of doing things, so I have a growing, but not esoteric, collection of film cameras - mostly quirky ones and definitely cheap ones - cameras 'of the people', such as Coronet rather than Leica or Hasselblad.

Since 'graduating' to K-mount, I'm tempted to get an MX as a manual film body. (I have an SF7 with film transport problems, but auto-everything is singularly uninspiring, so no love lost.)

I mainly photograph scenery and railways, but also have an interest in birds and other wildlife.

Regards to all

David N

Hi David, welcome to the forum.

I think there are at least 2 others from Wales, on this forum.

Welcome aboard David!

I am not any more shooting film, but often I find myself still thinking like I would. For example I still find myself 'saving film'

Like to see some pics from Wales!
