    It's been a while since I've been the member of a forum but thought I'd give it a go again.

    I'm from South Africa and a convert to film from digital.
    In April last year I inherited someone's entire camera collection, 137 cameras and various lenses and accessories.
    My aim is, as much is possible, to create images with as many of them as possible.
    So far, I've managed to get through about ten of them, mainly 35mm rangefinders and TLRs but I have many that use old formats that are not readily available today.

    That's mainly why I'm here, reading and learning.

    Thank you.

    Thanks a lot.

    Thanks, I spent a some time reading before I joined, there is so much information here and as you said, so many people will to share their knowledge.

    Thank you, I'm still in the process of photographing the whole lot. Where would be the appropriate place to do so? I've got some of them on Flickr...

    Thank you, I'm looking forward to both taking and sharing them.

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you!
