The EP1 is a fantastic camera - cult retro look combined with nice handling it takes some beautiful shots (obviously limited by the takers ability in my case!). Initially I thought the biggest drawback would be a lack of flash but its low light capabilities are actually pretty impressive.
I find the biggest problem (and this applies to digital cameras in general) is that the immediate feedback means you use it less; or you use it more but you tend to keep less. With a film camera you just have to keep shooting to see what comes out. As a result I'm actually shooting more rolls of film than digital pictures. In general I'm enjoying the results of film a lot more than digital; particularly shooting in black and white.
So todays header is from my Pen FT and some Fuji Provia 100 film - taken while walking along the Korokoro Dam track near Petone (a Wellington suburb).
I've had to crop and scale the picture so you don't get the grain of the film as much as you should. If I'd had more time I'd have liked to mess around with the Depth of Field a little more to try and get a lot more of a blur in the background ('bokeh') but thats life.
I'll definitely try and get some EP1 shots up next time.
Brilliant - Toronto subway etiquette posters.
Nice chart - Stages of a Photographer. I think I'm at the 'Everything I shoot is rubbish' stage.

ArsTechnica does a rather nice review of Ubuntu 10.04. As of v 7 or 8 its actually been pretty usable by a mere mortal (ie your parents).
