Back in the Summer there was a call out for unofficial FPP (Film Photography Project) meetups. As I do volunteer work for the FPP I took it upon myself to start organizing ones in Southern Ontario, but being busy I decided, hey why not just host one a season. Cross Promoting the event to APUG, and I settled on “Toronto Film Shooters Meetup” the Summer 2013 event was a good one, we took a very hot afternoon to wander around the Don Valley Brick Works. So for the fall at the suggestion of two other FPP fans in the area, Mike and John, for the Fall event we settled on Kleinburg, Ontario. Although the group was small (five of us) and the weather sucked, we still have a good time getting out doing some shooting and chatting. I took out two cameras to test for donation to the FPP, a Minolta X-700 and a Pentax ME Super. Both cameras I have used in the past, but happened across a couple more from family and friends, but not needing to add other 35mm SLRs to the mix, I simply used them on the walk to test make sure they worked before passing them along.
