Hello everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Dale. I'm 33 years old and I live in Pennsylvania. I really thought it might helpful to join this forum. I shoot Canon digital mostly, but have just started getting into shooting film. I am shooting with a Pentax P3n at the moment and I have an MX on the way! Very excited for that to arrive! Also, I have a few different film stocks that I am going to try out. I recently shot 2 rolls while I was down at the Jersey shore and I really enjoy it! I like how film makes you slow down and think more carefully about composition before pressing the shutter. It's very easy to get trigger happy with digital, so I hope that by shooting film, these habits will carry over to my digital shooting. Also, once I found out the cost of developing those 2 rolls, that makes me want to be even more careful about my shots!

Welcome to the forum Dale. I often think of dusting off the SFXn and shooting some film.

Hi Dale. Welcome to the Pentax forums. The cost is why I moved to digital !! Many members here still use film, so any help you may need is only a question away. Good to have you here.

Hi Dale, welcome to the forums... glad you could join us As Peter says, there are plenty of film shooters here on the forums. I'm dabbling too, recently, with a Pentax ME Super and a couple of other non-Pentax bodies. Very enjoyable, and - as you say - it tends to discourage the trigger-happy approach!!
