Hi from Bromsgrove, UK

Discussion in 'Welcomes and Introductions' started by barnvelder, Apr 6, 2011.

  1. Hi all.
    Joined this forum after being a member of Serious Compacts Flikr group.
    Started out in film with small compacts ( still have Contax TVS) but then moved on to SLRs and then DSLRs...now going back the other way!!
    Biggest camera I now own is Samsung NX10 which I like a lot!
    Mainly use Ricoh GRD 3 and am hoping that GRD 4 will appear in summer.....
    Currently spending much time trying to understand all features of Silver Efex Pro 2 and get it working properly with my printer.
    Still, semi-retired and I only work part-time now - and the time I do work is getting in the way of my photography!

    Hello and welcome barnvelder and thanks for your introduction. Plenty of Samsung and Ricoh users here and a lot of us still remember film. Being retired myself I often wonder how I previously fitted my job in. :smile:

    Welcome to the forums! I hope you'll enjoy it here as much as I have/am. If there's anything you need help on, dont hesitate to ask. There are many experienced members here who are sure to be able to help you, and I'm sure a few of us have used silver efex.
