    I moved to Eaton six years ago from the Perth hills. A great spot with the estuary and 3 rivers within 10 minutes drive. I am probably really a holiday photographer but all my pics are of landscapes or birds.

    I enjoy taking photos of birds and am gradually getting better at catching them in flight.

    I hung on to film by the fingernails before moving from my Pentax MZ5n to a Canon 600D. Now have a Canon 90D

    Welcome to the forums Chris, glad to have you! Did you come over from the pentaxforums?
    I too primarily shot Pentax for film starting with a k1000 when i was 12, and moving on to a LX a 645n and a 67II. The medium formats haven't got the love they should been at least 5-6 years since the last role of film.

    Hi Johnsey,
    Haven't been on a forum before
    I started out with rangefinder Kiev's 4A, then Zenith B, Pentax ME, to Canon MZ50, MZ5N and Canon since then.

    I could never afford a medium format so that's why I went with SLRs.
    Thanks for the welcome
