    Hi everyone

    I just joined the M4/3 community over a week ago, when I bought my E-PL1.

    I had film SLRs camera in the 80's and 90's, but since digital started I have only had compacts. However the bulk (and ugliness) of modern DSLR have put me off buying one for a long time.

    But at the same time I found that compact cameras allowed little creativity. I am so happy to finally have a portable, affordable camera which I can take with me and allows me great creative control.

    I'm so happy with it so far!

    Hello and welcome Cosimo - let us know how the new cam works out - it could be a great unit for my own married kids and their families but too expensive in Australia at the moment.

    Thank you all. I'm still learning my way around this forum and I'll soon know how to thank individually.

    I am going to post a couple of photo of my E-PL1 and some photos I have taken with it.

    thanks Brian

    I will be glad to upload some photos of my new camera, and one with a manual lens and adapter I have bought. However, there isn't a category to the E-PL1 as yet.

    thanks Amin and Rich M.

    Yes, I already got plenty of advice on this forum and everyone has been really friendly. Very nice.

    As far as my E-PL1 goes, well I'm so happy with it so far, that i might not be the most objective there. But we'll see how this honeymoon continues :)

    G'day Cosimo from Australia. Happy to see another on the forum and the quality of the users here is awesome. I'm wanting to actually come and visit London sometime in the near future. A visit to the 'mother country' as my Grandpa used to say.

    Cosimo, welcome and congratulations! :flowers_2:

    You can upload your photos to either a personal album that you can create in the gallery or to one of the appropriate genre categories. If you haven't read through the Housekeeping forum, there are two stickies there regarding photo uploads, etc.

    Yep, I've been checking your shots out as well.. great work. I too love the format... I can wear the G1 and 14-45 with hod around my neck and down inside my winter coat. Perfect.
