    Hi All,

    Just like to say thanks for what is a very informative and helpful forum, helped me no end in finally choosing a new camera for my wife.

    Never thought I would personally be able to get so interested in reading the different threads about cameras and the many aspects of photography but hey you've certainly won me over.

    Many thanks

    Dave

    I have been a member since the site first started and despite a period of absence, I stand by my original view that this is the most informed, friendly and willing to share site anywhere on the net.

    Everyone here has a vested interest in sharing knowledge, images and experiences without the sidelines of sniping or trolling so it is a joy to vist, look and learn.

    Welcome onboard - you will not regret it.

    Cheers Ian,

    I fear my only regret could be to my wallet, I can honestly seeing me having to buy a camera for myself now!

    Just found everything on here so interesting and I cannot believe how good the photos posted on here are, real quality and an inspiration to all novices like myself to improve, learn and enjoy.

    I concur with what Made in Yorkshire posted.

    I'd already had my G10 for about four months when I found this site. As I stretch my legs a little more and start experimenting with things like shooting RAW and re-purposing old Nikon lenses, this site has been a great resource.

    My only complaints are about the daily temptations to try all the cool stuff others are doing by picking up more gear. :frown:

    But I'm having a blast with what I have. There's plenty of time in the future to acquire more goodies once I've really learned to use the ones I have.

    I am new to this group as well, and I have really enjoyed reading the site. I have always been involved in photography....coming and going at times. I do belong to another very involved photography forum, but not having the newest Nikon or Canon puts you into the often ignored group of obscured photographers. I really like the micro 4/3 system---learning and experimenting! It is fun manually focusing again!!

    Dave,

    We have all been there and half the fun is the journey from where you are now to where you can be in the near future - learning, experimenting, and getting that satisfaction from seeing your work improve.

    The good thing about photography is that it never stops evolving and so we as photographers also develop, grow,and learn new things - that's what makes it so exciting!

    Enjoy the ride Dave.
