  • Hi and well done

    Hi, found the place from a recommendation on the Fuji site. Was beginning to wonder if us "made for digital" converts were lost to the web community.
    Interesting start to the site and some powerful images posted already to look and be inspired by.

    Ah, please tell me more about the 'Fuji' site

    Believe me, this is an interesting time in the history of Four Thirds - lots of interesting news in the pipeline; but then... we all know that really.

      Hi Ian
      It is Fuji own website, just follow the link to members page. A lot of good photos and some interesting and often heated topics of discussion.

      I for one am looking forward to four thirds and the smaller/lighter is a good option to go forwards with. I think cameras have reached the point the car industry faced a few years back.
      Do you make them big and heavy for the sake of it, or do you look at technology to reduce the payload and deliver better returns?

      Once again, well done for setting up the site.

      Richard

        Thanks Richard!

        I don't know if you can remember this, but when the OM-1 came out, the norm was for massive cameras. The OM-1 instantly forced everyone to re-think and the fight was on to make even smaller SLRs than the OM-1; witness the Pentax MX, ME-Super, Nikon E-series and more.

        For some reason, the autofocus era dictated that cameras should be big and bulky again.

        The tiny E-400 and E-410 (and the not much larger E-501) mean the big is best trend is being bucked once again.
