    Hello I'm Barbara from Pembrokeshire, Wales. I've been a keen photographer for many years and 3 years ago I bought my first digital SLR. I really love my Nikon, but 6 months ago I bought my GF1 and later added a G1 to my collection. The reason for buying these was because I find the Nikon + lenses very heavy to carry on my favourite hobby (clue in the handle). The G series are great little cameras and I use them mainly for landscape shots, whilst using my Nikon with Sigma 105 for my macro shots.

    Hi Barbara and welcome. I can certainly vouch for both the G1 and GF1, also use the Sigma 105mm for macro shots, in my case it's in a 4/3 mount so that's often my macro of choice on my G1, although I find the bokeh can be a little disturbing at times.
    Hope to see some landscape shots from your corner of the principality in due course.

    Hi Barrie, Thank you for your welcome. I've not been able to get out much with the GF1 due to bad weather but here is a photo I took earlier of a place near to where we live.

    hi Barbara
    Although from Essex I was in your neck of the woods only last weekend due to moving my step daughter to Caerphilly, I don't envy your Weather but I do envy the scenery
    Welcome
    Phil

    The weather here is usually very good, same as Cornwall/Devon as we are out on the Pembrokeshire Peninsula and the Gulf stream keeps us warm. We don't get the same weather as the Welsh Valleys. I hope your daughter enjoys living in Wales. It's a nice place to be.

    Welcome aboard, Barbara! Thanks so much for taking the time to introduce yourself here. It's a great way for us all to get to know each other a little bit. It seems to me that you've already made yourself quite at home.:flowers_2:

    I'll be looking forward to seeing more from you!
