About me I can tell you that I’m a retired person, I live in Galati- located in the vicinity of the Danube, and I’m only an amateur in the field of photography, who is trying to take different kind of photos. Also, I’m open to advice from other people more skilled than me. I can mention that in every trip all the participants except me use only little compact cameras or cell-phones to take photos.
Before 1990, I took many B&W photos using a russian camera (named Zorki), and in 2008 I started to work with a digital camera – Canon A570 IS, than a Sony H10, in 2012 – Sony Nex-5N with 18-55mm+Sigma 19mm and this year Oly-M5+Sigma 19mm and both cameras together are heavy enough for me.
I like to shot landscapes, churches, nice buildings, flowers, “weird” looking trees, and I like to produce as good as possible photos based on existing gear. Of course when necessary I shot family photos also.
About the gear, I consider the Oly-m5 better than Sony Nex-5N because this Sony delivers too weird/warm colours especially indoor, but Sony is better in terms of ISO noise.
I wish to have a good zoom lens for Oly-M5 (Oly 12-40 or Pana 12-35) but the price is very high here, and the risk to buy a bad copy is also possible. Such expensive lenses can be bought only online or directly in only one showroom in Bukarest.
Also, I have to improve the IQ of my low light outdoor/indoor photos of wich I’m not content at all.
