    New to forum and cameras

    Hello everyone! I just wanted to drop a quick hello to everyone. I just picked up my first Camera and got interested in shooting pics for fun. Of course, I'd used cameras before, but usually for a specific purpose, and usually for work, almost always done with cheap disposeable cameras as I only needed the picture of referance and not true "quality". Like my name implies, I've always been a huge fan of history, and that's what got me interested in these cameras - I've discvered that they have a huge history unto themselves, and in many ways they have effected the world in ways that I hadn't previously considered! So now I've gotten myself interested not only in thier history, but also in geting quality pictures for fun and possibly for art. I hope to chat with you guys often as I lurk about looking for more info!

    Thanks for the welcome and the info guys [and gals].

    The camera I have is a Russian FED-1 35mm mechanical. While certainly not "hi speed low drag" it does take excellant photos, and I like just as much for that as I do its extremely interesting history.

    Welcome and congrats on the Fed. I have almost bought one of those many times. It should be a good camera to learn with.
