    I picked up a GRD3 recently and I've slowly transitioned to using it as my primary camera. I still shoot with an Olympus 4/3 dSLR, but it's gathering dust now.

    some shots I've taken in the past month or so:

    I worked on a Project52 (one picture a week for the year) and I'm seeing a lot more pictures for next year (2012) since the GRD3 is with me almost all the time...

    I'm excited about photography again, but not for technical reasons. I'm excited because I can capture what I want, when I want, and how I want.

    Forgot to add that I love the in-camera features of the GRD3. In-camera post processing such as white balance, levels, and cropping are really handy. I'm also digging the configuration - I can configure the buttons and interface just how I like it.

  2. Looks like a good start! I love my GRD3 too. Why dont you also join us for the Single in January? I did, with my new GRD when we did a single in, in July last year. Just loved it. Also, BBW will be along shortly to invite you to post in the introductions area (but I'm beating her to it). Welcome, have fun, and love that GRD!

    I really loved the GRD IV.. but I thought I could use a little zoom for vacation. When I get back I might just get one again. Welcome and good to see you are enthusiastic about shooting now that you have new gear. It's a good pick me up I tell you.

    I just got my GRD this weekend. It is so fun to carry around, and the controls are great!

    ...and yet it still hasn't qualified for inclusion on your signature block yet Bill. Is there a 2 week quarantine period? :laugh1:

    I guess I should use the more generic gear approach, then I could switch whatever, whenever I want :)
