    Howdy from Texas

    New to forum. My actual name is Mike, and I recently resurrected my older Mamiya medium format film gear (M645 and RZ67), and decided to give the 6X17 format a try. I'll be using a Shen Hao 617 view camera...not sure if this technically qualifies as "large format", but this forum is the nearest thing where one can get and share relevant information. Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself. Looking forward to being a contributing member.

    Hey Mike welcome aboard!

    As far as 6x17 not being technically large format you simply need to pay attention where you post your 6x17 images (looking forward to seeing your 6x17 work) as in the correct subsection of the Image Sharing section or post them in the Lounge.

    Welcome. I really like the idea of the Shen Hao 6x17 with its ground glass that folds out of the way. Being able to use lf lenses, and accurately compose sounds lovely.

    What part of Texas? There are a number of lf shooters in Austin, but we never seem to do much in the way of organized socializing.

    Howdy from southern Illinois. I have been involved in photography since the 50's, but learn something new on here daily. You are in the right place!
