Hello from Michigan

Been using Pentax film SLRs since 1998, Minolta SLRs, Stereo cameras and RF cameras for longer.

My user name reflects my hobbies. the "E6" refers to photography - I've been shooting slides for 40 years.

Thanks for that, E6 I was OK with, the other two I would nae have had a clue.

I'm not that much wiser now, even though you've told me.

Hey Rob,

You stinking traitor....how can you give up after 40 years of heaven sent slide film?
Haha, only joking!
It must have been hell for you to convert to digital?

Don't worry mate, there must be many of us around the globe that have been through the same soul searching and torture.Weeping over those manual,analogue,metal,noisy creations closer to Stevenson's Rocket and the industrial revolution. Who in the hell needs all this digital crap? (Yes I said that!)
It was in fact my kids that got onto my case and said ,"you have to move on Dad,it's the digital age now!"

My beloved Hasselblad Pan X sits crying in the corner of the cupboard totally abandoned!
Well not quite.....I shot an old abandoned railway bridge recently when no one was looking.....still something about film I can't get out my veins hey.

Welcome to the forum,

There's an awful lot of big words in here. I'm getting a headache now, Haha. Anyway, welcome to the forums.
