Default Hello from Nottingham

Hi all,

I'm Peanut, from Nottingham.

I've recently purchased my first film camera, a Bronica SQ-A.
I've been a digital shooter for a few years now, but I feel that trying film is part of my 'journey'.

After seeing the prices of having film developed at a shop, I'm just investing in some basic processing equipment.
So I've now got my basics, and the chemicals are arriving this week from The Imaging Warehouse (a sponsor I see!)

Hoping to pick up a few tips and tricks here and there. I doubt I'll be of much contribution for a while as I'm a real newbie to film. But let's see!

Thanks!

Welcome, peanut. I am glad you're giving film and processing a go. I think you'll find it addictive

Thanks Mike! I'm addicted already, even to the sound of the shutter!
Digitally I shoot with a Canon 7D, but the Bronica feels and sounds like a real camera.
Would love to eventually move on to a darkroom as oppose to using a changing bag. I quite like the idea of shutting myself away in a darkroom (unsociable git!!)
