Hi everyone! Got invited by BBW to join Serious Compacts, so finally decided to join! Used to frequent MU-43.com as well, but not as much lately, because I haven't been using my m4/3 stuff as of lately. I got into photography around 12/2008 and it has been quite a fun experience. I was just looking for a hobby and now I have a passion. Before then, I'd owned one fixed focus film camera from Walgreens, one Canon Elph with APS film, and one of the first digital Canon Elph (2 megapixel camera). Photography has also given me a chance to bond w/ my father and my sister, who are both avid photographers. One of the biggest negatives about photography for me is that I am a gear-head, gadget-freak, and/or just a plain tech-junkie. So I keep buying more stuff. Probably have more than stuff than I'll ever need. Maybe they'll find a cure for gear-lust one day. Let's hope so before I go bankrupt!
