Hi everyone! I've been active on this forums sister site Mu-43.com for several years, and am now diversifying by adding a NEX-6 to my collection. The intention is to get the camera a full spectrum conversion (once I've got to grips with it) - My existing converted camera has proved somewhat insensitive to UV & I've heard the Sony e-mount models work much better. My GAS needed no further excuse.

For those who don't know me:
As my screen name suggests I'm a chemist, involved in the analysis of hydrocarbons - in both products & environmental samples. Most of my work involves chromatography but I do get to play with light too, and have made use of one of the instruments at work to assist my explorations of non visual photography.

I currently have over 20 cameras, but only half a dozen of those are in relatively frequent use. Hopefully I'll get round to the film based stuff again at some point!

Digital systems in use:
Pentax DSLRs
Micro four thirds, including a 'full spectrum' infra red converted model
and now Sony's e-mount as well!

I'm not currently intending to ever get any e-mount lenses, but that was the case with micro four thirds as well & I now have 6 native lenses for that system as well as the 100+ lenses I can convert, at least once my adapters arrive...

I help run a local photography workshop, yet still seem to spend more time on multiple photo-forums than actually taking photos. :drinks:

pretty much my situation with my 4x5 sheet stuff, its been "one thing after another" since 2010
My 4x5 hasn't been waiting quite that long yet - just about 5 years :eek-30: - it should eventually allow me to try out some historic processes, cyanotypes and the like...

I'm told large format photography is a much slower process than other forms, thats certainly been my experience so far!
