    Hello all.
    i am an amateur photographer living in Oulu, northern Finland. I shoot mostly film and in both small and medium format and started shooting actively in about 1980. i guess my all time favourite camera in medium format would be my dear Mamiya RB67 (with Franka Solida IIIe very close) and in small format... hmm... Nikon F2AS or Pentax KX or maybe Olympus 35 SP or Voigtländer Bessa R2? Yes, a severe case of GAS. Im mostly shoot Ilford, often Fp4+ but I also like to experiment a bit every now and then.
    Here in Oulu area in winter (and fall, and most of the spring) we have very little light so in midwinter we hardly photograph at all but we try to make it up in midsummer when sun hardly sets at all. I quess I mostly shoot the street, well kind of anyway. But what Iike the best is the first day in a new, big city with a few nive summer days to look forward just for myself and a Nikon 35 Ti. Or a Olympus 35 SP. Or a Bessa R2. :smile:

    Welcome to Photrio! You’ve got some great photos. I’ve been to Finland, but just barely. Would love to go back to explore and photograph it properly someday.
