Thread: Hello From The UK (West Sussex)

    Hello From The UK (West Sussex)

    Hi,

    Greeting from West Sussex in the UK.

    Having shot 35mm and medium format for may years, I have decided to take the plunge or should that be a trip down a rabbit hole into large format.

    I am currently in the process of gathering together a kit based around a Sinar F2 to see how much of a mess I can make of LF photography.

    Currently develop all my own negs, some get digitized and some get printed in my home darkroom set up.

    Looking forward with trepidation to this new chapter and how quickly I can deplete the bank balance!!

    Regards

    Antony

    Welcome, Anthony,from Stateside. I like your jolly sense of optimism. When I look at the cost of new digital cameras and lenses these days, I See our relatively modest investment level for equipment, at least to get started, rather favorably. I just a post elsewhere from someone selling his 14x17 for a 20x24. I'm happy with 4x5 (and smaller formats) myself. Anyway, you've found the best place in LF here.

    Welcome aboard! It's a friendly community here and if you have questions, no matter how basic or advanced, someone will be sure to help.
    And the Sinar F2 is a fine camera. Do share some photos when you have some!

    One of the great things about LF, Anthony, is that you can make much larger messes quite easily. Welcome and good luck!
    Where are we going?
    And why are we in this handbasket?
