    I never quite know what to put in these intro threads except to say gday, I'm here, I'll post erratically and thanks to the site owners for having it.

    My first post here was a short review of the compact I bought just a couple of days ago, I was so excited about it I just had to share. You'll find it here

    I have a LOT of cameras (though not as many as some), I just can't seem to help myself. I spot something new (for me) and I just must. I'm sure many of you are the same. My cupboard is getting a wee bit full.

    Current collection of compacts (I wont go into the SLR, dSLR and lenses collection) Olympus C760-uz, Panasonic TZ7/ZS3, Canon G11, Panasonic FZ100, Fuji F550EXR. I have also owned a couple of other Fuji compact/bridge cams as well as a Kodak or two, but have onsold or given them away.

    Anyway, given that I have a renewed enthusiasm for compact cams, I expect I'll be here for some time :)

    Oh yeah Mate, This is just the place you want to be. I'm sure you'll find a lot of encouragement on building your compact collection. In fact, there's probably a few here that would even help you spend your money....
    I see you don't have a Nex yet.... hmmm tsk, tsk.... not that that means anything.....
    If ya need me, I'm around... welcome home....don

    G'day mate and welcome from the rural Southern Tablelands of NSW!...down near out hallowed capital.

    Great place this! Talk gear, share knowledge and experience, post photos and enter the weekly challenge. It's all here and it's all free....of the large egos you find elsewhere.

    P.S., I knew a kyteflyer on another brand-specific forum. Hmmmm.... hearkening back to your Fuji F550R thread, maybe I didn't have my GPS disabled after all - folks are starting to find my little hidey holes :wink:. If you are one and the same, again welcome, you have come to a far better place :grouphug:

    No Nex for me. Looked, played, didn't appeal :p Ditto the various Olympii and GFs. I could change my mind about an olympus.

    Spending money is what I like to do. Trouble is, its limited :)

    You still do know that kyteflyer, and thanks very much for the welcome :) You find that particular forum a bit... ahem... as well? I thought it was just me. I still post occasionally but find that I am usually roundly ignored. Love the cameras but am finding the osteo is starting to play havoc so I guess part of looking for a really decent compact was also to give myself a bit of a rest from the wrist-angst.

    Thanks to both of you for your warm welcomes :)
