I did a lot of 35mm photography as a teenager and in my early 20's. I was introduced to LF by a photo instructor in college and had a limited oportunity to test the waters, but what I say intreged me. - THEN CAME KIDS - and most hobbies were put on hold for the last 15+ years. Now kids are mostly grown and I can try again.
I just purchased (last night) a LINHOF COLOR KARDAN 45S w/Schneider-Kreuznach Symmar 5.6/135 convertible to f12/235 mounted in a copal No O. I hope to have it in hand by the end of the week. I will be trying to gather the necessary accessories to make this a functional setup.
If anyone has any input for me on necessary accessories, manuals, tips, etc. Please feel free to e-mail.
I have found a great deal of info from the LFPHOTO site already and I am looking forward to many hours of reading and many more hours of shooting.
