Post subject:  Hi

Just got my account activated - I'm Allan and I am located in "fly-over land" USA (Indiana).

About a month ago, I had an incredibly fortunate event take place: My UPS man handed me a box containing a new black Leica M240 (which is the source of my forum name).

I have been learning the M240 since then and have forund that it is not as complex a camera as I had expected, in spite of all the technology and capabilities it has (this is my first ever digital camera).

Learning too use Lightroom 5 has been another matter, however. :shock:

Fortunately, I have several friends who know LR5 well and are willing to help me learn.

Hi Allan! Welcome to La Vida Leica. :)

The beauty of the M cameras is that they're really pretty simple when it comes down to it. Quick to operate, not distraction with an overwhelming number of features or menus. You can really "focus" on the photography aspect.

Lightroom, yeah... I'm in the same boat. I'm a die-hard Photoshop user and just can't seem to warm up to either Lightroom or Aperture. One of these days!
