My name is Andrew and I'm a medical student, but I like to pretend I'm a photographer with a medical school hobby.
I found this forum in passing, looked around, and liked what I saw. I recently bought my first 4x5 camera (an old Calumet with a 135 Caltar S-II lens) and I'm in the process of learning the LF game. I hail from the panoramic 35mm world, but I moved up to medium format game a year ago when I repaired/restored an old Hasselblad I got for a stellar price (been hooked ever since).
I'm joining this forum for two reasons:
1) to learn more information/get tips about LF stuffs
2) because I'm in the process of building a custom 6x17 camera capable of movements and am in search of the perfect lens..
For 2, I'm searching for a Grandagon-N 115mm at a decent price, and was told I may find one for sale here... (APUG claims one sold here with a yellow filter for $325 in October..) But.. it seems you need to be a member for 30+ days before one has access to the FS/WTB section of the forum.
Is it possible to gain early access?
I'm looking forward to learning and shooting more LF soon.
