My hobby is hiking, but i was disappointed by the photos i was bringing back.
Thats why before going to hike 3 weeks in Iceland i bought an Olympus E420, that was a HUGE weight investment ( more then 600g :eek: , when we dont bring a real tent to save weight and sleep in a 830g floorless shelter )
But i didnt regret it and i now have A4 and A3 printed books from this hike and the following ones in Scotland, Greenland etc..

And a hearty Bienvenu! from me, a twentieth-rater, too!

Here are some photos I like of Iceland; perhaps you'll like them too.

Welcome Fred :friends:

you should have a wonderful record of your hiking trips with that setup... I hope you'll post more in due course!

Cheers

thanks for the welcome messages
and for the link Rax, i really enjoyed browsing them.

i am into Brian videos atm, and good news i can understand you when you speak.
Ii learned english 30 years ago reading Gary Gygax Dungeons and Dragons so if i can read it fluently and write usualy what i mean, my hearing / speaking is quite impaired, once i asked for "two half" pints in a London pub and they thought i said "twelve"...

Welcome, I'm new here too:smile: You've taken some great photos already. I have an Olympus E420 and got some great photos in Morocco last Autumn with just the 25mm pancake lens for travelling light. I found I only missed the zoom a couple of times. I'm using a Panasonic GH1 now but it's not that much smaller than the E420, on the plus side the viewfinder is amazing for my aging eyesight :biggrin:

If you're at all interested in photo books I can recommend Rax's Faces of the North. I ordered my copy directly from Iceland (a very simple process) and this made its arrival even more welcome.

And if you're not at all interested in photo books then you should be, so that (like me) you can enjoy the pleasure of tiptoing around the piles of them that grow on the floor once all the bookshelves are full.

Wikipédia nous dit qu'il existe une édition en français : Visages du nord: Islande, Féroé, Groenland (Reykjavík: Mál og menning, 2005. ISBN 9979-32593-3).

Please don't worry about your English. It's clear that your English is not as atrophied as my French.
