    I've stumbled on this forum via Google looking for some expert guidance for a Sony DSC-RX1R I'm waiting to receive.

    Started photography in my Dad's darkroom in the sixties, used his old Leicas, then bought my first Canon in the 70s, then a long time with just little P&S, then around 2005 went digital with Canon gear and had loads of fun with it with genres as diverse as macro, studio, travel, action etc.

    Now tired of lugging around 30kgs of equipment I found myself leaving too often at home and having only my cellphone camera.

    Trying to RX1R route in hope to revive the shooting !!!

    You all take care.

    Welcome Robert (Roberto?)

    Whatever it takes, man, as long as it doesn't weigh 30kg (ouch).

    It's Robert,
    we could never afford the extra O :)
    See you're from the Canary islands. Been in Fuertventura with my young daughter a couple of years back and really loved it !

    Take care.
