At the risk of jinxing it already, my 'new years resolution' is to take more photos :-) Probably not a stretch for a photographer. But for someone like me, who spends so much time agonising over camera purchases, it's worth making that commitment. I have finally, after many years of searching, found the camera and system 'for me'. Now I want to get out and start using it.

For a very long time I held on to my DSLR's, and had convinced myself that mirrorless was not for me. Oh how wrong can you be? I now truly believe that I will never own another DSLR. Even if Olympus folded (and they are having their problems), I would look at either Fuji or Panasonic mirrorless as replacements. Wouldn't even consider another DSLR.

The light level was very low, so the camera chose an ISO of 3200 (I have it set to Auto ISO ranging from 200 to 3200), which allowed my to get sharp images at around 125th sec.
As well as taking my camera with me and getting out with the family as much as I can, this year I also hope to be far more active in my local camera club.
The monthly meetings begin in February and I am going to try to make it to all the meetings, and submit at least one image every month for judging. I might post them on this blog each month, along with the judges comments. Might be interesting to look back and see how I went over the year? First up in February is 'Waves' as the set subject, although you can also enter 'nature' or the 'open' section as well.
