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'm paring down for an upcoming purchase and have two lovely Pen bodies for sale.
EPL2 - in red and hardly used - beautiful condition. Comes with box, charger, disk, etc. £200.
EP2 - in black with custom skin with leather effect. This camera has seen a fair bit of use, but is in...
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.
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.
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...
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.

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...
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!
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.
