Hi from another escaped Essex boy. Only a bit jealous of your 6006. I've only ever seen one and it was a lovely camera. Look forward to seeing your results!

Rob

Welcome aboard Carl. yes, I'm a bit jealous of your 6006 too but I will have to struggle on with my half-dozen or so other cameras ...

Not only is film still alive, but darkroom printing is very much still with us ('tho I reluctantly accept not everyone has the time and space these days).

Enjoy! Bob.

Thanks Rob, in the last couple of weeks i've also aquired a 35mm camera and a couple of lenses via car boot sales. A Cosina CSR with the AEC adaptor in mint- condition for £8 and an excellent Vivitar Series 1 135mm f2.3 for £5 also in mint- which i also look forward to using. I'm an enthusiast and i like to find bargains!!!

Hi Carl and welcome. In analogue terms you sound to be "good to go" as they say

Mike
