About filmcamera999

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 years...my first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money back...no arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!

    • have you been to the uk at all, marty?

      • MartyW47 says:

        lol Never… I would like too t some point but haven’t gotten there yet….

      • ..when and if you do go, you’ll find it very different to the US or Canada even…..the only thing the same (almost!) is the language….the humor, nuances, innuendos, the way things are done…all those are very different….i recall the first time i used the word “fortnight” here in Canada….my colleagues just gave me a blank look, and one of them asked me what that was…..they didnt know fortnight means 2 weeks in england!!

        LMAO! Yes! English and American English idioms have always been a source of amusement for me. Chaps, Bangers, and knocking someone up are just a few examples where the their meanings are radically different even though the language is essentially the same…

      • ..someone being “jammy”, a load of old “codswallop”, an old “git”, a “ne’er-do-well”, a “spade”, your car boot and bonnet, being “knackered”, shouting your head off, arranging a “piss-up in a brewery”, what the actress said to the bishop, “as the crow flies” ….all these are generally used terms with their own meanings in england…use any of these in the US or Canada, or probably even other countries…and nobody will have the faintest idea of what youre saying….!
