Newbie alarm (from Finland)

Hi, all!

I just lake photographing. I start my hobby somewhere mid of 80s.
My hobby start littlebit, how I say it, vice versa?
Because I first bought enlarger and start make my parents old 6X6 B&W negs to paper.
(Well ok, I take few shoots with my 16mm coke "camera" before that).

Later I bought some of modell at Praktica and start my own "production".

Local photoshop was wery kindly and hepfull, I was something like 10 years old.

Then I have a few cameras like Olympus OM-707 and Minolta Dynax 600si Classic.
Somewhere at 2006 I bought Sony Alpha 100 camera and moving to Digi time.
Now I have also Nikon D7000 digi body.

But now I started to film time again. And I bought few bodys more =)
Praktica F.X2, Contax D, Pentax SF 7, Canon T 70, Canon EOS 300 and EOS 500N
Those are 35mm.
I also start trying to 6 x 9 format with Bessa I (also 6 x 4,5 is possible with mask).
And bought 4 film cameras (all to gether was 4,50!)
Universal, Eumig, Bell & Howell and Kodak Brownie.

Welcome suorama, I'll be interested in seeing some Finnish landscapesif you are amenable. I know almost nothing of your homeland except Finnish landrace sheep are fantastic. I raise them here in the States.
Enjoy the forum.Its a pretty wonderful group to belong to.
