    Hello all,

    Good to meet you all - albeit through the medium of the internet :)

    Soo, a little about myself: I am quite a keen traveller - having trekked through much of Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Naturally, comes the photography - which I have been getting an increasing love for. Things started off with a point and shoot which was fine for its time - but in many cases, didn't make justice of the amazing scenery. Next came the stalwart Nikon D40 - my first SLR. That was great - but I had to admit that I mostly used the Auto settings :frown:

    I started to read up a little on the technicalities of photography (topics such as aperture, shutter speed etc..) and was keen to experiment. I loved the D40, but the compactness of the point and shoot was great for travels. Naturally, four-thirds seemed to be the way ahead.

    Although I am yet to sell the D40 (too many memories :redface: ), I went ahead and purchased a GF2 - it seemed to be solidly built and comes highly recommended through the reviews I read. And also, it had 720p recording.

    I enjoy looking through your photos - and keen to add to my current photo collection in Flickr (feel free to browse): Tasneem Kabir's collections on Flickr

    Catch you guys soon

  3. Welcome to the fourm. I understand not wanting to sell your old camera; Only yesterday I charged up my old travel buddy (Canon 350D) and took it out for a spin.

    BTW, feel free to add your flickr link in your signature.

    welcome, and congrats on m4/3. The compact m4/3 bodies does make for a great travel system.
