    Hello, all! My name is Peter. I have been involved in photography since the late 1960's when I purchased my first camera, a Nikkormat. In the mid-70's, I moved to medium format work and had my own darkroom. I worked mostly in B&W. I quickly embraced digital years ago and have owned various DSLRs, mostly Canon and Nikon, and a handful of P&S cams.

    A couple of years ago, I purchased a NEX-3. Out of the box, that camera was DOA and I then convinced myself to just stick with my then Canon bodies and lenses forgetting about the NEX models. With the recent NEX-6, my interest was once again piqued and I recently purchased a NEX-6 and a couple of primes. Luckily, this NEX turned on and so far, so good. :D My main photographic interests are street photography, portraits, and landscapes.

    I don't know why, but the first thing that came to mind when I saw 'peacefrog' was Yoda, lol! :)
