About me:

Hi there, had may fair shares of digital compacts, starting from the 1.3Mpixel Canon Powershot A50, and then later a decade or so with Canon dSLRs from 10D to 7D. Then I made the next transition to mirrorless...

I am now shooting with my mobile phone, my Micro Four Thirds system, or occationally the Canon 70D which my wife uses most of the time otherwise... Most of the time, the DMC-G6 is in my jacket pocket. It's like a shrunken 70D, but the viewfinder is live-mode with all of its advantages.

Shooting mostly RAW and using Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop to finish off my photos. Spends more time at the computer than behind the camera I think.
