I'm new to this forum,so hi everyone!:smile:

I sold all my 35mm gear(Leica M6 and Nikon F4/5 based) about 6 years ago and went over to Canon digital. Then,about 6 months ago I suddenly became disillusioned with the whole digital thing. So,I'm back to film and have just bought a Hasselblad 503cx and 80mm 2.8. I have used,over the past few months,a Mamiya C220,a Lomo,Holga and various other film cameras,but I ALWAYS wanted a 'blad!
I was in Calumet in Liverpool(the nearest decent camera shop to my home on the Isle of Man,UK) and the guy in there said he has noticed a very sharp rise in the the sale of film,especially 120 roll film.

So,there's hope for us analoggers yet!

You can see some of my first(and some from when I started out over 20 years ago!) results on film here - Dead Link Removed

Welcome from one of the other Islands which is of something (I know what a Man is but not sure what a Wight is!).

Your route from film to digital and back again is fairly common. It's what I did too.


Steve.

Welcome to APUG!

I've moved this thread from "Feedback and Discussion," which is for feedback about issues with the APUG website, to the Introductions forum.
