    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Scott Galer. I teach Chinese and chair a department of languages and international studies at a private university in southeastern Idaho. For as long as I can remember, I've enjoyed making photographs as a hobby. In recent years as my family has grown and my career has become more demanding, I've had less time to devote to hobbies.

    As I write, my first micro four-thirds camera is on its way to me. I ordered a refurbished Olympus PEN E-PM1 this weekend. Thanks to those who reviewed and commented on this camera in the mu-43 forums. Your comments were insightful and helped me make my decision about which camera to purchase as I make this foray into this new (to me) format.

    I look forward to learning from you further.

    Welcome to the forum, Scott, and congratulations on the E-PM1!

    Are you in Idaho Falls? A beautiful area... close to the Tetons and Sawtooth Mtns. :thumbup: I lived in Boise for a while and was in and around Idaho Falls a few times to visit a customer.

    Thanks for the warm welcomes! Kyle, I am just up the road from Idaho Falls in Rexburg. We are about 90 minutes south of the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park.

    Still waiting on that camera and lurking around!
