Are there any Silent Witness fans here? Every now and again there is a scene featuring a DSLR with a ring flash - a SOCO accessory at crime scenes!

Has anyone else thought the same?

Anyway, I'm pretty sure it's an Olympus E-3 with matching ring flash. I know that Oly UK sometimes uses a product placement agency for just this kind of work.

Yep several of us spotted the Olympus gear in that series a while ago:

Haha! 2008! I confess that I'm not addicted to Silent Witness like some other members of my family! But I have seen a couple episodes from the new series and so it seems they are continuing to use the same gear :)

Makes a nice change from the Nikon gear I keep seeing in CSI :D
