Thanks for the welcome. I am so looking forward to getting to know people here and learning as much as possible.

Have a question anyone answer please:
Can the GF1 use Canon lens for digital dslr? And if so what adapter would make it work? I have a Canon 50MM and a Sigma 10-20mm F4-F5.6 with a Canon mount. Wondering whether I can adapt them for use on GF1. Any info appreciated.
Hi flyby, yes you can use Canon lenses with your m4/3rds camera - you'll just need a Canon to m4/3rds adapter.

Here's an example.

Cheers

Brian

Brian, do you know whether aperture control is possible with Canon EOS lenses via adapter? I don't see any controls on that adapter, and the lenses don't have an aperture ring. I assume the adapter doesn't have any electronics, which makes me wonder if the lens can only be used wide open with that adapter.

To increase mid-range contrast, yes? (As opposed to lower it.)

Thank you very much. I know Unsharp mask, but vibrance is new to me. Looks interesting. It's not at all clear how it's different than Saturation, though.

Unfortunately, it looks like aperture control is not possible for the Canon lenses.

Ian,

Thanks for your comments.

I'm curious; are you using the square aspect ratio in camera, or are you cropping in post? I've never tried shoot 1:1 before, but I love your square images.

Here is my little contribution. Gf1 with 20mm 1.7 wide open at 1.7, 1/40s at 100 iso.
I love that lens and the out of focus zone. Got to get close until they make a 50mm.

Hi Steve,

I used the square format in the camera rather than crop - this way makes me think more about my image at shoot time and compose for that format.

It just adds that extra challenge which I love:cool:

A real pleasure to see Brighton even with the wind and rain, we have been up here in Scotland for 13 years having moved away from Sussex (Chichester, then Haywards Heath). Thanks for sharing.

Just spent a couple of days away with "Er indoors", the weather was very changeable culminating in very wet and windy so thought I would tryand capture the scene with GF1 + 20mm.

Works for me and captured exactly as I wanted it to - no lag at all!

Loving the last capture with the people about to get a soaking, that's why they went there in the first place no less!

New Pics from Yosemite

Just returned from Yosemite after spending a long weekend in the snow with my Panasonic GF1. On Jan 21, Yosemite experienced the worse snow storm in over a decade. I was fortunate enough to be there to snap this shot.

Kool.

The GF1 is a great travel camera. It just needs a short compact tele, similar to the pancake lens for Pentax, the 70mm 2.4, which is not much bigger than the Pana 20mm.
