Not exactly new to the forum....

...but I've never posted anything since I joined a few years ago. I've been a happy owner and user of Pentaxes for years, though. The first one I had was a Program-A, which I loved but sadly left in a taxi in Hong Kong in 1996 Since then I've had (still have, in fact) a ZX-5N and a *istDL, but my main loves at the moment are a Super Program (bought from eBay to ease the lingering pain of losing the Program-A all those years ago) and a K-1000 (which doubles as a self-defense aid - you could kill a man with a blow from that). I've sent them both in to Eric for a checkup and service, and I can add my name to his long list of satisfied customers. His work is phenomenal.

I still shoot film, and develop my own. I've had good success with B&W, and mixed results with C-41. I've never tried E-6 but I have cross-processed it with good results.

Oh - and I'm an expat Brit living in the US. Interesting times....

Welcome to the forum, it could be worse, you could be living in Europe...
