    You can also process raw shots with Olympus Master which comes with the camera, though it's relatively slow when you make adjustments. It won't scan your PC for images either, which will be good news...

    Not being a pro with pro equipment, and not having money to burn, I simply don't take my DSLR outside if it's raining --- whatever the technical arguments might be one way or the other. And anyway,...

    in any event, even when working on a file converted from RAW to TIFF or JPEG, you should leave USM till last and never 'save' the image with USM applied. That's because if you oversharpen and save...

    I'm currently alternating between RSP and C1 -- with C1 being the better of the two as regards colour from my Oly files, just a pity speed isn't one of it's strong points. Now, I have tried Bibble...

    Wildwinds - you basically got it right -- A UV filter is a good way to protect the front lens element and won't cause any image problems provided you get a high-quality glass one like the pros use -...

    olympus have not released any details regarding who makes the new sensor for the E-330. But if noise levels are lower than previous E models, I would think that's been achieved by using a cmos-type...

    I fail to understand nothing my friend! I know it's an option, just not one that I would ever use. I've been using a film SLR for 20 years and never once been in a situation where I couldn't use the...

    No doubt this novel idea from Oly will bring more digicam users over to DSLR, but personally I dislike using an LCD screen for composing and shooting. I swapped my Sony digicam for an Oly E-300 for...

    On most digicams which feature noise-reduction, it can usually be turned on/off, but not increased/decreased. At least that's how it is on my Oly E-300. For full control over the degree of noise...

    You suggesting the D50 is not a 'prosumer' but the E-300 is? You'd be wrong my friend. If anything, they are both prosumer models, but the E-300 is just as capable as the D50 in the right hands, and...
