    Hello forum!

    I'm Ollie from Chicago.
    A bit of on my passion for photography: my first love was the fixed lens lomo, then to my beloved Nikon D80, and most recently a Mamiya 645 Pro TL. I know I'm a bit late the to MF game (my wallet feels it), but it's been such a pleasure to shoot with.

    Currently in the process of deciding what camera to bring on a 2-month trip through Europe and North Africa. Would love to leave the D80 at home...hence all your expertise to help me decide on what ;)
    Would love your thoughts, join the conversation: https://www.photographerslounge.org/f98/open-monologue-rant-question-7778/#post70665

    Wasn't quite sure where to post a broad question like that, but given I'm leaning toward fuji-land I figure it would be appropriate there.


    Thanks for having me,

    O

    Welcome, Ollie. Although not a serious compact, I would love to see some shots from the Mamiya 645 in the Fun with film cameras thread.

    Cheers,

    Antonio
