My old hobby!

Hi, I'm Francisco, from Mexico.

In short: I use to love film cameras when I was student, but now I prefer the digital ones

1986 - 110 kodak Ektra 200
1989 - USSR LOMOGRAPHY LOMO Compact 35mm Camera
1990 - Zeiss Contaflex II
1991 - Miranda F
1995 - Pentax ME
2001 - Nikon 4004
2006 - Sony's T100 Digital camera and I forget about the film era.
2007 - I never touch a camera neither digital, film or cellular. I like to remember things my own way. How I remembered them, not necessarily the way they happened. ― David Lynch, Lost Highway
2015 - Pentax K-x

I just discover Manual Lens last July, so I got those:
-Pentax-F 35-70mm F3.5-4.5
-Pentax-A 24-50mm F4
-Pentax-A 35-105mm F3.5
-Pentax-A 50mm F1.4

I'm back!

In large cities it is very difficult to obtain films for analogue cameras; even more a place of development. In small towns, like the one I live in, those things no longer exist. Although there are digital printing places I think it is not the same to the chemical process. I actually liked the developing process... out of reach in my place... that's why now I prefer digital.
