    I知 very new here!

    My name is Michal and I知 on the beginning of my LF Route. After 8 years of SLR shooting I have sold my cameras and lenses. And now I知 a proud owner of Toyo AX Camera - thanks Glenn, one more time.
    When I知 looking for LF forum I think that LF photography is American national sport or at least national hobby.
    Here in Poland is very hard to be LF amateur shooter! For example 10 sheets of Velvia costs... are you sitting? ...58$ !!!! So you can imagine how painfully it is.
    But after all I知 still on the right side of the barricade ;-). Greetings for all. Michal

    Welcome Michal. With those prices for color film I hope you are shooting b/w, at least until you are accustomed to LF.

    What lens are you starting with?

    Welcome to the obsession, Michal! I'm often surprised at how much film, etc. costs in Europe compared to the US. While I seriously doubt that LF photography is anything more than a very small niche here in the US, the fact that it is relatively more affordable here than it is in Europe helps to encourage folks who want to try it even if they later decide that it isn't for them. Good luck!

    Mike

    Hello everybody
    I never shot b&w, I'm transparencies gay and I love it. I currently have only one lens (150mm) but I'm dreaming about 300 & 90 lenses.
    Thank you for such warm welcome!

    Welcome to the forum, it just keeps on growing by leaps and bounds. I like transparencies too... although I do find them expensive!
