Hi all ,
I started the hobby of creating image since 1982 when I gotten my first SLR - Nikon FM with 43~86mm.I was only sec.2 then .
It has been a really satisfying hobby ,making new friends along the way whether on location shooting,waiting for the correct lightning and moments or in the used eqpt shop in peninsula ; except the money spent
Over the 20 years from 1982~2002 , I have amass and used various marque of SLR/MF and interesting lenses and did tried developing and printing my own colour neg and prints .... those were my growing up years.
Then I was totally sold and cut over to carl zeiss optics and eqpt after I accidentally came across a Japan contax magazine lying around in the then camera workshop(Don) in peninsula where some pictures they printed in there got a special kind of impact (later I learn - it's call bokeh) that really open my eyes to the difference between the Japan and German optics .
However after my second child come along , I find that I have really got no time and energy to go out for shooting anymore. Everyday has been a constant struggle between work and family and the prospect of lugging a heavy camera eqpt bag out with these young monsters on top of what I have to carry for their diaper change , toys and milk powder/bottles will surely break my back in no time.
So I stop totally except for a point and shoot digital camera which I bought for my family last year.
I am now thinking of restart the hobby again since I have all these 'cocoon' in my dehumdifier.
28-85/F3.3-4 Vario Sonnar
Rolleiflex TLR 2.8E xenotar
40mm (non PQ)
80mm (non PQ)
150mm (non PQ)
So , is film still very much alive and can I said buy a digital SLR body and mount the above contax lens onto it?
Any suggestion/recommendation/comment are welcome !
