    Hello from frosty Scotland! It's been about five years since I was active on this forum, and it's lovely to be back. I gave up photography in 2011 (after a horrible experience taking photos at a craft fair), but I've (mostly) got my confidence back and am ready to take photos again. I can't...

    What do you do...?

    I sell raw ingredients for soap and cosmetics making. And occasionally, I make soap. These are soap loaves ready to be cut into bars.

    Showcase Panasonic Leica 45mm f/2.8 Macro Elmarit

    I didn't get on very well with this lens and ended up returning it. After seeing all of the wonderful shots, I am worried I've missed out on something!

    EVF2 and Motion Sickness

    I'll try the LCD next time. I'm pretty terrible using it handheld, but it beats feeling sick!

    eBay Seller... not too cool.

    I'm sorry you've had a bad experience. I buy from cam_uk regularly and shipping is usually fast If it's any consolation, the adapters he sells are very good quality.

    EVF2 and Motion Sickness

    Burkey, I'm not glad you felt ill, but I'm relieved it's not just me. I was up an down a small step ladder at the time, too.

    EVF2 and Motion Sickness

    It didn't occur to me that it could be vertigo, but that does make sense. I've had the same sensation watching films like Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield, both filmed in a shaky, handheld camera way. I thought it might be something similar. I'm sure it's me and not the EVF.

    EVF2 and Motion Sickness

    While taking some handheld macro shots yesterday, I was replying heavily on my EVF. I'm not the steadiest hand, but I don't think I shake too much. About 15 minutes into my shoot, I was overcome with motion sickness! Of course, this made me feel completely ridiculous and wimpy. Just...

    Hi from near Stirling! That's a great camera-lens combination.

    Why did you choose Olympus over Panasonic?

    I've been a loyal EP1 owner for a little over a year. From the moment I first held it in my hands, I loved it and still do. It was a joy to use, and I was inspired. I began taking a lot of photos and learning more about photography. As my skills improved, I wanted to try new things (like a...

    Photography books, websites, blogs, etc.

    My favourite is 'Collins Complete Photography Course'. It's the most accessible photography book I've ever read.

    It's less than a mile from my house! And there is a cart there that sells the best ice cream in Scotland. Congratulations on your win. Did you go on the very slow boat?

    It Pays to Tidy

    I ended up on Ebay and found both the M42 and the K mounts from one seller for a fair decent price. Having only recently moved out of using iauto all of the time, I hope these 'new' lenses will help me learn. Thanks so much to everyone for their input and help. Maybe one day I will know...

    It Pays to Tidy

    I've located one on Amazon. It's all very exciting! I hadn't really considered using older lenses, but it seems that once you know what you're doing, the possibilities are endless.

    It Pays to Tidy

    While cleaning out a drawer today, I found some old lenses: A Takumar 35mm 1:2.3 (I think this is an M42 Mount) A Pentax M 50mm 1:1.7 (K mount?) A Takumar 55mm 1:2 (Again, I think it's an M42 Mount) A Vivitar 'Automatic Tele Converter' (this has a screw mount, M42?) Maybe this is a haul...

    Greetings from Scotland

    Thanks again, everyone! Boyzo, haggis is great - especially when it comes from a family-owned butcher in Bannockburn. I think the only Scottish delicacy I'm not keen on is Irn-Bru. It tastes of rusty bubblegum. Blech!

    Greetings from Scotland

    Thank you for the warm welcome! I'll try to get a link to my flickr going in my signature. There are a few landscapes there, the most recent of which are a bit snowy.

    Greetings from Scotland

    Hello! My name is Elizabeth and I'm an American expat living near Stirling in Scotland. I shoot with my well-loved EP1, and I've recently acquired a G1 which I'm learning to use. I'm looking forward to getting to know other M43 users.
