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!

I think the GF-1 is a really nice looking camera. My pink one loves your red one. :)

Congrats Andy! I'll be expecting some photographs to show up by the end of today.:thumbup:
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:

Andy, Andy, Andy......
No excuses! Make photos in the house...
It beats watching TV and being on the computer...
Come on... Get to work...
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.
