Hello from Portugal

I have joined, because I am an Olympus user for many years, which go back to the analogical times. And I like to be actualized.

Re: Hello from Portugal

Hi, Greytop.

Currently, I use one OMD-M1, one OMD-M1 MkII and one Tough 4.
I also own one E-3, but it is too heavy and I prefer the micro 4/3.

And you?

And you?
Like you I have a EM-1 MkII, I also have a Pen-F and a Stylus 1.
I mostly use my 'Pro' glass with the E-M1 and my smaller primes with the Pen-F.

What subject matter do you shoot?

Re: Hello from Portugal

Welcome Fadista How do you like and use your TG-4?

I have the TG-5, as I have swum with dolphins, and like/need a good quality underwater camera. Its also so handy to carry when the EM1 ii is relatively too large...

A warm welcome to the forum Fadista, we like Portugal here especially as they fix all our cameras if they are feeling a bit sickly

Re: Hello from Portugal

I use the Tough 4 as people use the mobile phone. It is handy and with me at all times. I like it mostly for macro, although I have a Zuiko macro 60mm 2.8. I also like it at sea, photographing or doing videos of sailing races, because it handles all rough use and sea water.

Re: Hello from Portugal

I have several and fifferent interests and, therefore, I shoot almost everything, dependind on the occasion and mood.
This afternoon, for example, I'm going to shoot a boxing combat, for the first time. Tomorrow morning, I'm going to photograph sailing (Optimist and Laser), if the weather conditions are right. Next weekend, I will cover a jet ski competition. What I like is shooting.

Re: Hello from Portugal

Hello, there.
Yes, they do, which is very conveniente for us. If it is in the guarantee period, they collect it from home and return it, within 4 days. Fantastic!

Re: Hello from Portugal

Hello, Daveart.
Just to say Algarve is right on the south of Portugal. Let's hope we gather more portuguese members in this forum.
