    Nice pics, edawg! Hey man - there's no denying the weather-resistance of the E-3. I'm with you on that one (and have been from day 1, as you'll recall). Unfortunately, unlike you (as much as as I...

    Latest juicy Nikon Rumors?

    I've been off the grid for a while, so please forgive me! :D

    I'm about ready to say F-it and go full frame. You all know what a nut-case zealot I am for video on DSLRs, so that figures large in...

    Thanks VR. Yeah - I don't use my hoods indoors because when I do use my pop-up flash, they cast a wicked shadow at wide-angle distances. I do use them outdoors.

    When I first saw the pics before reading the EXIF data, I thought it might be a 'fill flash' issue. I used to make the mistake with my D70 of shooting in Aperture priority with a wide aperture for...

    WAAAAAAY more than $200, but... you might want to check out the Sigma DP2 or wait for the Olympus Micro 4/3 cameras to roll out in a few months. They still won't match a dslr, but if it's 'compact'...

    To use spot metering and fill flash with a bright background, you have to move the center spot to where you want it to measure for the exposure, LOCK IT (AE-L/AF-L button) , and then recompose and...
