Hello from sunny Manchester. I've recently upgraded from a Canon p&s to an EPM-1. I've been lurking on this forum for a while, and I found it very informative when it came to making my decision of which camera to get. I joined with a bit of trepidation, being a complete novice with no technical knowledge; though I like to think I've a good eye. I'm sure everyone says that I've long been interested in photography, especially old photographs of 'the city' (any city, I think they are endlessly fascinating). I'm so in love with my little purple camera - I've never used anything other than p&s but am having an excellent time figuring all this out. Hope to be able to contribute to the forum in some way or other! Louise.
