G'day from Aus

Hey folks.

Bought my 1st 'proper' film camera, and 1st Pentax late last year. A wonderful Pentax MX film SLR.

Have just returned from a 5 week trip around Europe, shooting around 14 rolls of colour and B&W.

Currently scanning them in bit by bit (man I wish someone told me how long it takes!). Averaging about 18 negs a night. So yeah, it's gonna take a while.

Have enjoyed reading through a few of the threads so far and have loved the collective wisdom, especially of the film addicts!

Looking forward to sharing some of my shots and learning from the community.

G'day mate and welcome to the forum

Just quietly i am thinking of getting either a K2 or a MZ-S, or maybe both

edit: or perhaps just an MX.

Welcome to the forum, maybe time to think about going digital then.
