I've been keen to get a new camera for a few years now, something more "manual" that would force me to learn a bit more about photography and also which would encourage me focus on composition rather than anything else.
It's been tough saving any money whilst on startup salary, but I finally cobbled enough together to pick up a 2005 digital rangefinder - the Epson R-D1.
I'll post up my noob experiences with it, from the perspective of a complete novice. But first, some images from the first 24 hours of owning this camera.
It's obviously early days for me and photography, but it has been a lot of FUN getting my head around manual ISO, aperture, focusing and handling RAW files.
