    Congratulations

    It is great to see a new forum that has a section dedicated to small sensor cameras and users, Thanks to Sean for prompting this and Mitch for supporting - I am sure this will grow very rapidly and constructively and provide many sensible points of discussion as well as valuable information for all.

    I have been using the GRD for about 2 yrs and now find I use it more than my DSLR (purely due to weight/size & laziness), that said, the quality of images that many of the small sensored cameras can produce is incredible.

    I like many others suspect the future of these cameras is very bright and, when and if the Sigma DP-1 does arrive it will potentially revolutionise the current market expectations - we already see many working photographers carrying compacts as backup cameras and the likes of Ricoh are aware of this.

    The advent of the small compact with the "Larger sensor" is almost upon us and I would not be surprised to see the likes of Canon release a compact with a larger CMOS Canon made sensor in 2008 - Any thoughts?

    I am waiting for my GRD2, and if it exceeds as I supect and Mitch has just about proved the quality of the GRD - I will be a happy bunny!

    Hello and welcome! I am kind of excited about this space too, since I really don't know too much about these smaller camera options. However, given many of the images I'm seeing in the other GR thread, I'm going to have to get up to speed!

    Yes, thanks to Sean and Mitch, and to Guy and Jack. Guy got me on the forum last night from his Blackberry (or whatever)--way beyond the call of duty I'd say.

    Good wishes,
    Walt

    I must say it is a pretty impressive start, as of this moment there have been 161 posts on the Small sensor format area - wow!

    This is obviously an indication of the interest in this format and I personally look forward s to a long and happy association with this site, and discussing a subject I love with like minded people.
