Hi from Canada

I learned to shoot on a K1000 and to me the controls are like an extension of my hand and eye. Just feels right. I got back into film photography in December when I bought a Holga toy camera. While I love the 120 format, I prefer actual f-stop numbers, not 'sun' and 'cloud' icons. So I bought myself a K1000 and will post the serial number when it arrives.

I think the 120 is the best format there. Holgas are fun bit the K1000 is a real camera. What part of Canada are you from?

I'm just west of Toronto. I also bought a Diana F and it's entertaining. Found a odd old camera too - a Photo Master. This is a 1940s 127 camera with no focus, no aperture, just a shutter speed of maybe 1/60 to 1/100 and a B setting. I found some 127 film and ran some test rolls through it for fun. We'll see what the results are next week. At some point I will buy something better in the digital world besides my Canon point/shoot.
