Default Greetings

Hello all. I'm a kiwi living in London and have been taking photos since I was given my dad's K1000 for my sixth birthday in 1982.

I predmominantly shoot b&w film and usually use my minolta x-700 or x-500, k1000 (the same one) and Canon 1N/1V for 35mm. I also love shooting with my Mamiya 645 pro in medium format.

I develop my films myself and although I haven't made a print by hand for 12 years, I'm setting up a darkroom at home as my Christmas present.

Looking forward to becoming part of the community and getting to know some of you.

Douglas

Welcome Douglas, your dadís K1000 was a very good present, built like a tank, simple manual operation; it will outlast any digital camera.

Hello and welcome to the forum, Douglas.

Personally, I couldn't think of a better Christmas present to one's self!

Hi Doug and welcome to FADU, I liked the K1000 a nice camera to learn on and all the more precious since it had been your Dads.
