Hey all :-)

Hello all you wonderful peoples! My name is Shaun, I'm 35 and currently live in Connecticut. I've recently picked up a 645 film body and am looking to dive head first into the wonderful world that is medium format film. :-)

Welcome 'nik' enjoy the new/old camera! Depending on your Nikon experience, that 645 might not be too big a step up in square footage..

Hi Shaun. Welcome to the Pentax forums and Pentax equipment. Many members here still " film " it, so any help or advice you may need is only a question away. Good to have you here.

Very cool. I've thought about that too, but it would be one more hobby I wouldn't have time for!

I'm sure you'll enjoy that beautiful vintage camera.
