Hi,

After about one month on the forum I think it's time for me to introduce myself to all of you. In this one month I have spent a great amount of time reading (and learning) and already managed to buy a new lens, a Samsung 12-24, from TonyM (Thanks again Tony for the great lens!).

I live in Finland (but I am Italian) and I am returning to photography after a very long break during which I have mostly used P&S cameras to take family pictures.

A have a mixture of cameras and lenses from my old manual days and latest digital additions and trying to put some order and fill some gaps. I now have a K20D, which I really enjoy, and a few older ones, an MX, a P30 and a Cosina CT1. My beloved Cosina was my first SLR camera I have used for many many years and with it I have learned the little I know about photography.

I look forward to contributing to the Forum and to your valuable advice!

Terve vaan!

If you're mobile and don't mind getting cold.. I have a 'jääratapäivä' going on at the end of the month and would appreciate some decent photos (I will be driving...) LMK if you're interested and I can give you more info.

Hi Bret,

Thanks for the offer. This month would not be possible, traveling and pretty busy all weekends. I would not guarantee the decent photos, no experience in similar situations... But might be an interesting experience.
Let me know if there are other opportunities.
