    I relate to the laging unsympatheic family bit and yes some of my best shots are the quick grab ones. Thank god for P mode!
    I see in your sig you have a G1 as well - how do you like it & how's it compare to the Oly?

    Hahaha. I've noticed that my rate of good pictures plummets when I am in a group, even of two. As soon as there is a group of people trying to go somewhere (backpacking, vacation, walking), it is difficult to justify walking in circles in the 100 yard vicinity just because the light is good and you like the foreground or background. But yes, I've noticed many of my good shots in those cases were on-the-spot with no time for thought.

    I started this thread after analyzing other forums on this site, when I decided that the reason they had higher traffic was because they had photo threads. Photo threads apparently give a sense of continuity in the face of sporadic posting. I figured since this was the best camera forum around, it would be nice to have some Olympus shooters around too.

    Let's save some time and make a list of the cameras e_dawg doesn't have!

    Raven-

    Here's one from yesterday afternoon. This is the guy that came to fix the cable installation. Taken with an E-520 with the ZD 18-180mm and the FL-50 flash to fill in the facial features in the late afternoon light (4:30pm).

    Here is the second photo from the Cable Lineman series. Again it was the E-520 with the ZD 18-180mm lens and the FL-50 flash to fill out the shadows due to the darkening light at 4:30pm. This second one may be the better of the two. What do you think?

    Wow! I would love to have a ZD 70-300mm lens. That Scotch Thistle was great. But it will have to wait until the Christmas expenses are down the road a ways.

    It's good. The IQ is okay, but I prefer the E-520 and E-3 better. I find I like the Oly colours better than the Panasonic's, and the Oly JPEGs are better overall. The G1, however, is great for B&W and the EVF and contrast-detect AF Live View is excellent.

    The manual focus assist on 4/3 lenses is good (most 4/3 lenses do not autofocus on the G1), but it's better on old school MF lenses from the film era because those lenses usually have a much longer-throw focusing ring and it's easier to adjust the focus that way instead of the "focus by wire" stuff with non-SWD 4/3 lenses.

    Bottom line: it's a game changer IMO (not for IQ, but for everything else), and paves the way for other EVF / Live View dSLRs.

    If you want to take a look at a couple B&W pics with the G1, PM me and I will send you a link (I don't like to post portraits on public forums for privacy reasons).

    E dawg -
    That is a great photo. I like the drama of it.

    Don- the photos of your good buddy in the snow are cute.

    Some of you may know me, as I have been on the Forum for a long time. However, I am new to the E-520, so I am attempting to determine what the camera can do, as the last Olympus E camera I used was an E-300. So please excuse me if my first postings have the look of a newbie, but I will get there. I teach digital cameras for our state university, our local Community College, and on cruise ships.

    Today I have two High ISO Setting test shots. There were taken this morning (11 Dec) at about 0630 when our great room was pretty dark. I shoot a lot of existing light stage photography so that is why the high ISO tests.

    Here is the second photo taken at 1600. Both photos were taken on a tripod.

    With over 3000 posts Sarah hardly a newbie even with a new camera. Those two shots look fine to me. Did you PP noise etc at all? Nice clock too.

    Hi Phil-

    No, all I did was to adjust the levels so the two photo had the same overall tone level so that they could be reasonably compared visually. No noise stuff like Neat Image orf Noise Ninja.

    Hi Sarah,

    Shot in raw or jpeg and what level of noise filter?

    Cheers, Don
