    Welcome to CS~
    Age should nt be a barrier/obtascle to your path to photography.
    On top of that, there's nv a stop to learning, we are always learning new things each day, Enjoy it to its fullest!

    Almost bought an EP1, but EP2 was launched, and I am confused. Then there is GF1, DSLR etc. Should someone like me buy EP2, when just starting out. Only time before this behind the camera was when clicking the shutter as a favour to others.

    Where in the market that is reliable to buy cameras and accessories. I am totally novice and blur.
    Read this thread and definate helps.

    Friends, 55 or 56 not too old.
    I am 58+ and yet still shooting local and overseas.

    I suggest, we meet up and have cup of tea and talk more on this topics.
    I do join the CS outing but still find that there is a age gap between 55+ and 20+ trying
    hard to patch but the gap is the gap.

    So, 55+ club can meet and build a bigger group, it will be good exspecially we have all the
    time even overseas trip have not constrain in time.

    How about my suggestion?
    Hope to get so feedback from 55+ ppl and we could start a thread in the Kopitiam.

    Regards,
    Enjoy your every moment with our nature and friends

    Walk by a camera shop at Orchard Towers this EARLY afternoon (not night), and find out that EP2 with either lens cost $1,300.00 (exclude gst) and with two lenses cost $1,500.00 (exclude GST), but no stock. The salesman (one nice Indian gentleman) will call me when stock arrived. Plus some other accessories another $500.00.

    OK with the price? Anyway I did not commit to buy. Initial Budget for camera and accessories will be about $2,000 to $3,000.00 Enough?

    Once past 55, I am spending my children money already, so quite flexible.

    as long as you can hold up your finger to press the shutter release button, then you are not too old for it.

    Enjoy the hobby... you will love it!!
