Hello Everybody! My name is Gustavo. I am an Argentinean living in NYC. I am a Creative Director/Graphic Designer. On February 23rd, I received an Olympus E-PL1 as a birthday present. Lucky me, J&R received their shipment that same day! I am very excited about this camera. I've been willing to get a dSLR for a long time, but it was hard to think about traveling with a medium sized bag just for the camera and lenses. BTW, I love to travel. Photography allows me to connect with the places I visit in a creative and exciting way. I consider myself a novice with this system (and with Photography in general). Previously I owned a Lumix DMC-FZ50. I am hoping the E-PL1 will give me more creative control and versatility over my pictures. The M4/3 gave me the right compromise between image quality and bulk. I am also an Apple devotee and aviation enthusiast. Now I really want to understand the technicalities of photographing with a M 4/3. I am reading some basic books, listening to podcasts and searching online for information about this format (and with photography in general). That is the way I found this website. I posted a few pictures in Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/photos/gus_nyc If you made it this far, thanks for your time. I hope to see you around the forums. Have a good one! Gus PS, Please excuse my English. I am still working on it.
