Hi,

I've been lurking a bit just lately and eventually got round to registering a few days ago. Thought it was now time to step out of the shadows and say "hello." Don't know how active I'll be - I already spend too much time on other Olympus/Four Thirds sites - but having recently purchased a G1 to compliment my E-3 I thought it appropriate to at least be a member and look in from time to time.

First impressions of the G1 - great quality in a small package, not truely pocketable but far more portable than the E-3 and hence more likely to be taken on casual outings when photography isn't the main priority. Haven't got used to the menus yet and much prefer the Olympus E-System in this respect but I'm sure I'll become more comfortable with it given time.

Here's a few pics taken on my first "serious" outing to a local forest with the G1 last November:-

I think it's great that MFT has now got a dedicated forum; the format is very much in it's infancy but I think it has established a whole new direction that camera design will take in future years and the potential is enormous. In ten years time we'll all be laughing at the days when we had a mirror slapping around in our cameras! :biggrin:

goldenlight, thanks for de-cloaking, coming out of the shadows and welcome to :43:.

I know there are quite a few other "lurkers" and some who have uploaded to the the "old albums" and even to the new galleries who don't post but I hope more will follow your lead.

That first shot puts me in mind of a children's fairy tale - and yes, of one of the Harry Potter book's characters - "The Thumping Tree" x 2.:biggrin: I could wax poetic about the other photographs as well...but hope you'll post them to an album or two in the new gallery system that we just began today.

And, I have to add that as a dog lover, I am really taken by that last shot.

Hope you can stick around.

P.S. I see you have added yours to the galleries.:biggrin:

Welcome goldenlight, and thanks for sharing your first images - the G1 is a good shape for using the 4/3rds adapter and ZD lenses... have you tried any? I find it works great with the ZD 11-22 or ZD 14-54... although, I have to say the Lumix 14-45 is a teriffic kit lens for the G1.

Hopefully we're already establishing an identity here - as a super friendly, photography focused forum. I hope you'll come back frequently. Check out our new Galleries... they're free to upload for members.

Cheers

Brian

Thanks for the warm welcome BBW. Glad you liked the pics. I hadn't associated the old hornbeam with the Harry Potter tree but now you mention it I can see what you mean! :biggrin:

Hi Brian,

I haven't tried any other lenses on my G1, at the moment it's a camera that I want to keep simple, lightweight and portable and the kit 14-45mm is a belter which covers 90% of my needs as a walk-about. When I need a more comprehensive range of focal lengths I still favour my E-3 with 9-18mm, 14-54mm and 70-300mm, but often I just don't want to carry all this and that's where the G1 comes in. :wink:

I'm impressed with the new gallery that you've added to the site and must say that the unlimited space and file size is very generous. :drinks:

P.S. Great range of smilies, too! :bravo-009: Can't wait to use the "flogging a dead horse" or "flying pig"..............

Welcome John

Enjoyed browsing through your images, as a fellow Essex chap I am familiar with many of the places in your gallery. I haven't delved into Landscape images to much but hope to in future, your work is excellent.
