About me:

Been an amateur photographer since 1984, and started with an
Olympus OM10. I replaced that with an OM40 and used that until
2000, when I got my first digital, an Olympus
C960Z. I then got a Minolta Z1, which I used for quite a while, and replaced with a
Panasonic FZ7, but I now use an Olympus E-1, which I changed to from an E-510.
