Hi Everyone

Just joined the forum after kinda inheriting an OMD EM1. Despite being blonde I have managed to take a few photos ( using auto of course ). This is my first foray into anything photographic but so far I'm enjoying it. Hopefully all the information to be found on here will help a lot.

Nice to be here

Rebecca

Re: Hi Everyone

Hi and once again, welcome to the forum. We've all been there - newbie and confused - some of us still are. Just remember two things #1/- , There are no silly questions and, #2/- If you don't ask, there will be no answers. There's also lots of info to be found within the forum pages by way of Noddy Guides that have been posted by various members etc. If you can't find it, ask it. We don't bite.

Most of us still haven't remembered where we left our false teeth.

There is this forum link https://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=48652 you might find interesting

Most important of all, enjoy the new adventure(s) that your journey into photography will bring.

Re: Hi Everyone

Welcome Rebecca, any questions ask away this is a very friendly place. My daughter is enjoying my old EM1 and she's blond too so i'm sure you'll get along fine with yours .

Re: Hi Everyone

Welcome: there’s a huge amount of Olympus experience on here, and some of us can even remember what we learned over the years.
What was I on about...

Re: Hi Everyone

A warm welcome Rebecca. What ever you do don't ask how many people have left the focus clutch on manual on their expensive lenses and can't work out why the auto focus isn't working.
