Great pic.

I'm new to photography and saw you used an E-PL1 which I was looking at today priced at 130, is it a camerayou would recommend for landscape/street/poss portraits

Hi Ian, tried to PM you but you are too new to the site to be PM'd!

Yes the E-PL1 is useful for that kind of photography- while I try to shoot in raw and often use prime lenses with my SLRs this is a carry round and this image was shot in jpeg, using the standard 14-42 that came with the E-PL1. ( which feel like a toy but actually delivers very sharp images.) I tend to use the camera most with a viewfinder attached to the hot shoe - I find it easier personally to compose that way - if you want one they can be found for around 90 -100 pounds second hand.

As a basic camera the E-PL1 delivers all that you can expect of it. It is not a new camera nor is it as sophisticated as some newer ones and the pixel count I am sure will go up but this blows up to A3 just fine. Only limitation is low light where the standard lens is a bit slow- I have actually just bought panasonic 20mm 1.7 so I can use this camera more in low light.

I hope that helps - if you want to know more contact me through my website ( and we can saw e-mails and take the discussion further. Enjoy your photography and keep using this site - it s a great community. Steve
