Thread: Hi, from Florida, USA!

  1. #1

    Hi, from Florida, USA!

    Hi, everyone!
    I've been "lurking" here for quite awhile. I have learned a lot from searching, and reading the posts.
    I just "won" a Sinar Norma from an auction. I anxiously await it's delivery!
    I have already bought a couple of lenses, and only need some film backs to get started.
    I look forward to participating here, and hope no one minds a few newbie dumb questions!

    Mike

    Hi Michael, I live in Redland which is southwest of Miami and an agricultural area if you are unfamiliar with the area. Welcome to LF membership and all of its benefits. (Today is my birthday and I received a "Happy Birthday" from the LF software ). I lurked around here for a couple of years and then decided to ask a few questions. This is a great forum. Have fun with your new Norma.

    Welcome to LF Michael. I think you'll enjoy using the Norma, great camera, I have a 5x7 Norma rear standard for my F1.

    What lenses are you thinking of getting first?

    Welcome to the LF Forum, now that you've de-lurked, Michael.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Darr! I'm in Northeast Broward.

    Ron, I have a Super Angulon 90 f8, and a 13" Wollensak f10 APO Raptar (no shutter). The Norma is coming with a Symmar 150/265 convertible. There are others I want, but I'll have to wait awhile.

    Thanks Michael! If you plan on heading south to the 'Glades (I live on the road in front of the "Welcome to the Everglades" sign, SW 217th Ave), PM me for a photo get together!

    Kind Regards,
    Darr

    Thanks Darr, I just might do that. I don't know anyone around here that shoots L/F.
    Looking at your website now... very nice!

    Welcome, Michael, from another "newbie" to the forum. Been shooting 4x5 for about a year and a half, so I'm starting to get it under control but still have a lot to learn. This is a great place to do that.

    I'll be relocating down your way this fall -- well, north of you -- Orlando.

    Anyway... welcome aboard.

    Welcome to LF. As far as LF groups in Florida ( see http://www.largeformatphotography.info/groups/ ) , the Central Florida group may be inactive, while our little group in North Florida remains small. APUG.org has a Florida Regional forum (under community) that should facilitate getting together on outings.

    Welcome from another Florida LF [4x5, 8x10] lurker . I'm in between Daytona and Orlando. I don't spend a lot of time on the computer, but feel free to PM me if you are in the area.
