    Hello all
    Just to introduce myself. I am Denise and new to this forum having purchased a OM-D late last year and I am quite overwhelmed by it all. Came to this site from google search about AF Beam and got the answer I was looking for.

    I have been (and still are) a Canon user, but have invested in the OM-D for it's size for travel overseas, where weight etc is important. Along with the body I have 2 Panasonic lenses 12-35 and 35-100 both F2.8 and the HLD-6

    I need to get competent with this camera before 24 April when I head to Spain and Morocco for holiday. I am sure I will find lots of answers here and thank you for sharing.

    welcome! I pretty much got into OM-D for the same reason... smaller travel size.

    Welcome Denise,

    That is a awesome starting kit in M43. Have you considered a FL600R to accompany this gear. That would be the ultimate travel set up. The flash would provide fill flash with off and on camera high speed sync abilities. It is easy to spend other's money.

    Many highly experienced users here, and some that use M43 gear in professional roles. The best thing about this forum is the positive vibe and the ever willingness to assist others.

    Welcome aboard Denise, you've found a great place for all things m43 here.

    Beautiful part of the world you live in mate, I spent a week at Margaret River a few years back wine tasting and catching some waves. I hope to visit again some time soon.

    That's a hell of a kit you have and I'm sure it'll serve you very well indeed on your travels to Spain & Morocco (envious) ;)

    Welcome Denise, I'm a Melbourne boy. You'll be blown away, as I was, with the camera overseas. This site is brilliant for advice, just looking and inspiration. Look forward to seeing some photo's
