Hello from Rhode Island!

I'm a film director, production designer, and whatnot, and I sometimes work as a director of photography for independent short films for colleagues to pay the bills.

I also teach film classes to middle and high school students, and am always on the lookout for cheap gear I can recommend to them.

I have a few Takumar lenses my dad bought many years ago. I love the look of the images, and the f1.4 50mm in particular has come in handy in available light situations. I shoot with a Canon 60D with an M42 adapter. My students generally have Canon t3is and suchlike.

I'm looking to expand my collection of fast primes (especially with shorter focal lengths) so if there's anything you'd like to sell me, send me a message!

Welcome aboard! Remember to check Craigslist - people sell off old film gear all the time.

Bonjour from France and welcome to PF, rsfilm ... hope to see some images soon ... Salut, J

PS - I would recommend Helios "44" series ... like maybe the plentiful "44-2" (58mm f/2 preset M42's) Russian Biotar copies ... if you want to try one out, let me know; I have many of the sereis; more than in this old snap ...
