    I'm excited to announce a companion forum/blog to Mu-43 at SeriousCompacts.com.

    Some of you will recognize Serious Compacts as a site where I blogged for nearly three years prior to starting Mu-43. In fact, many of the early members on this site found Mu-43 via the links on Serious Compacts.

    After a period of inactivity, I've decided to re-launch Serious Compacts. The idea behind S.C. is to cover everything of interest to small(er) camera users. These days, with Micro 4/3, Samsung NX, Sony NEX, Ricoh GXR, and more mirrorless systems sure to come, this is a rapidly evolving area.

    I think Mu-43 and S.C. can complement one another very well. Mu-43 will remain focused on being a great home specifically for Micro 4/3 users on the web, while S.C. is meant to serve as a forum and blog for those interested in the full range of compact photography systems available and the work being done with these remarkable tools.

    Soundimageplus will be joining me as an admin over at Serious Compacts. We hope some of you will come and contribute your ideas, experiences, and images!

    The new site can be found at www.seriouscompacts.com

    Like the phoenix, SeriousCompacts.com rises!:drinks:

    I've been over there a few times, Amin, and now I will have a new place to help me keep the camera economy growing.:biggrin: Very nice layout over there, too.

    A good move Amin - not sure I can add another photo forum to the six I frequent but will watch with interest - bookmarked already.

    ...and remember Amin has the facility to create 'skins' for the framework to allow you to choose alternate colour schemes.

    Cheers

    I also joined SC, but personally find it unhandy to have two "overlapping" forums.
    - Is / Can it be made possible for users to see them as one?

    Joep, it is not possible for a member to view the two sites as one. They are designed to be distinct, and I think that as S.C. develops, it will be clear why it best stands alone.

    Bill, that's always the challenge - so much free time, what to do with it all? :biggrin:
