Hi all from Spain

Hi all!

I'm Álvaro, aka aremesal, and am from Northwest of Spain. I'm in my late 30's, and have been photographing for about 6 years. I like and practice travel and urban photography mostly.

After some bridges and an entry level reflex, I switched to micro4/3 mirrorless format and become a believer of the mirrorless and compact form factor. After a while with some E-PL's and OM-D's I changed all my ILC gear for a Fuji X100S, and began to enjoy light traveling.

And nowadays, I've switched to a Ricoh GR, because I've realized that that camera absolutely fits my style of photography, even more than the X100. I'm a little afraid about the lack of a viewfinder, but a few weeks ago I bought an old original GRD I (the one from 2006) just to try the Ricoh mod and layout and... I felt in love with it, and that's the reason for I've bought an APS-C GR.

So, I'm not a Pentax user, but a Ricoh user... anyway, nowadays Pentax-Ricoh is the same family, and I think this is the most active Ricoh GR forum, so here I am!

I addition to my digital work, I'm learning analog processes, and enjoy using some analog cameras, and developing and enlarging in my bathroom-lab.

I apologize for my poor english, it's not my mother language so please excuse me ifwhen I make some grammatical or orthographic error.

Best regards from Spain!

Hello, Álvaro, and welcome to the forums - great to have you with us! And thanks for the background information; it's always nice to know a little about our new members

I've never used the GR. I do know that it's a very capable camera, and those who have one seem to get great results. We have plenty of GR owners here, so you're in good company.

Looking forward to seeing some of your photos... Oh, and your English is absolutely fine!
