About My Photography
Early adopter of Olympus OM1 following Bonnington recommendations. Nearly 30 years service till I went for a Canon digital (A20). Moved to Lumix Panasonic DMC FX580 with superb wide angle and colour rendition but problems with grey spots on sensor. Now on an Olympus E-PL3 Micro Four Thirds. Use on Automatic settings all the time. Great camera, almost retro.
