    Hi all

    Due to no job :frown: I have had to sell my canon gear but had enough for a GF1 which I picked up yesterday. The only 20mm kit Park Cameras had left in stock was a red one which I thought looked really nice in the shop so I bought that with the EVF. When I got home and popped the 20mm lens and EVF on I thought...WOW! What a nice looking camera. Love the colour and love the camera. It's SO nice not to have to handle large cameras. I love the weight also and had forgotten how nice it was to hold.

    I find the EVF very usable as I only use the screen and now EVF for composition but I don't think I could use it for manual focus lenses and the resolution is not good enough.

    Here she is. She's called Lulu and she looks better in the flesh. This is not a great photo!

    Taken with a Canon S90. That's a great couple of cameras you have there! Congrats on the red GF1, it's a nice-looking rig...

    Hi Andy, congrats on the red GF1. My wife has a red G1, which also looks great.

    Not a chance I'm afraid. I had a Ruby wedding party to go to and it's been raining most of the day. I'm busy all day tomorrow so it will be Monday before i get a chance to get out there providing the weather is OK. Fingers crossed!:smile:

    I do! It and white are Japan-only colors and are getting kind of thin on the ground.

    Your camera is not your Fair Weather Friend...
    It's a full time companion...

    Deirdre, she's very pretty in pink.

    Andy, I like Lulu too ... have to say I've never heard anyone name their camera before. Car yes (mine is called Howard), but camera ... no. Sounds like the start of a serious relationship ... have fun! Good luck in your job hunt.
