Default Hello from Corsica

Iím Francois, retired and live now in Corsica. I have worked many times in optical brands (Carl Zeiss...) and beginning the photography with olds 6x9 fatherís cameras and home made enlarger at 15 years old ! Theses last years I used digital cameras and now return to my lovely analog cameras : Hasselblad 503CW, Leica M4-P and M6. Last year I find a nice Toyo-View 45G with a Rodenstock Sironar 180mm. My sonís Christmas gift was a beautiful Schneider Kreuznach 75mm and this son, who loves in London shall receive his Toyo-Field 45AII !
Thatís all folks, and we are glad to be here now and hope to use my bathroom to complete film development by paper and collodion development!

Hello Francios in sunny Corsica (from not-very-sunny-and-very-cold England).

Welcome back to the dark side

Some very nice camera equipment there - and a home-made enlarger too! Nice combination.

It looks like your son knows how to give a good Christmas gift

Don't forget to show us some of your images once you get everything working as you like it.

Have fun, Bob.
