    my favorite brush

    i bought the grd 1 as it's such a brilliant little B+W machine but i find myself shooting high iso color more often than not.

    either way it's a fun little beast that can be had for a song!

    Good to see ya here John. We have all missed the flavor of your images.
    I had the GX 200 for a spell and found the high ISO not something I wanted to deal with.
    You seem to be doing ok with the Ricoh. Bar none, Ricoh has the best interface.

    Don't be a stranger...Don

    well my friend, spending as much time behind these infernal machines as i do it is quite a joy to just stick a point and shoot in people faces with little work.

    Don, did you pick up an ep-1?

    John,
    Yes, I picked up an EP1 with the kit 14-42 and also the 17mm & finder.
    It's a great camera with a nice interface.
    I also picked up a G1 the other day with the 14-45. Much different way of working but I feel that if I'm staying in the m4/3 camp, I might as well have both form factors.

    How are you making out?

    I like the first three quite a lot, especially the last of that set. Re: the last one. I'm developing a slight aversion to shots that are obviously "from the hip", probably since I've taken a large number of horrible ones. They too often lack the feeling that there was a deliberate impulse from the photographer, especially as far as the composition. Having said that, the reflection does work ok.

    Re: my favorite brush

    thanx Sizifo. truthfully i have lost my street shooting passion these days. i shoot a lot of press and documentary (which i am totally committed to) and it is just plain fun to set up the grd on snap and literally SNAP. with that being said the "hip shot" stuff is a touch cliche, i agree.

    hi Don! well, i have been pondering retiring the M's for the work end of things and was considering a pair of ep-1's. not in a real rush as i just picked up a few hundred rolls of tri-x and that will last me until january. i suppose my only real concerns are dynamic range and durability. pixel peeping this vs that is pretty much irrelevant to me... decent dynamic range, reasonable durability and a useable 1600 (color) and i am happy! i was thinking one with the 17mm and finder for the auto focus end of things and one with a VC 15mm and finder for what i love best, the scale focus gig.

    i would like very much to hear your thoughts. i do of course know you have sung it's praises briefly elsewhere so i appreciate the effort!

    john
