At last the sun shone and the rains ceased and I was able to have a short walk in the local woods*yes

Que? :confused:

Nice shots. I was up in Cannock Chase yesterday (in between meetings) and it was just a bit too early for autumn colour, worse luck. In a couple of weeks...

Actually it is the OP that made me make this remark, apparently he has no issue with his E-3 but only wants to show-off his photo so why not post in the proper forum? After all the subname of this forum is: "E-3 specific discussion".

And I do not like threads being hijacked. :)

Surely the OP could be construed as inviting a discussion on the specific capabilities of the E3 in relation to the pictures?

For example, I'd very much like to ask Yorky if he found live view with the articulated screen useful for the fungi shot that appears to have been taken from a low position.

Perhaps you too, Henk, could think of a positive comment or question in relation to the suitability of the E3 for woodland photography?

:D (I could not find a smilie that depicts "hysterical")
I was a moderator on a Photo forum so maybe I'm a bit oversensitive to posting in the wrong place. If you want to discuss this further send me a PM.

As a user of an E-3, for low shots I still prefer to sit on my knees or lie on my belly instead of using LV. Oly needs to do some more work on LV to make it really usable.

so use a VA-1 angle viewer.

Do we see here an illustration of why the EU will never be harmonious <g>

I recently took some shots at ground level up to my knees in a bog. Lying down or kneeling wasn't a comfortable option! I've also take shots of pendulant flowers, with the camera body at ground level shooting upwards at an angle of 45 degrees. I would have needed to dig a 2ft hole for my head, to get behind the optical viewfinder. In spite of its drawbacks, I find live-view with the articulating screen a real blessing.

In fact I did use the live view for the fungi shot, to be honest though I would have prefered to use a right angle viewfinder for that shot however the live view is quite useful and saves the old knees a bit. Mr henk is welcome to his view, after all thats what the forum is about isn't it!
