Special Session with Olympus tomorrow, FOI
 
Hello everyone,

members of the Olympus Photo Safari Group, have been invited to a special session with Olympus tomorrow, Tuesday 24th February... if you're not already a member of the Safari Group, and would like to join us for this very special event - please register here for details.

Click on the Blue location pin here.

If you can't make the event, we'll be producing a special report tomorrow evening - register here to get notice as soon as it's available to download.

I was down there yesterday to discuss the event with Olympus and to visit the stand - here are a few snapshots with the E-520 + 9-18, shot wide open at f4 and 9mm

Who needs small? buy a cannon for your canon!

I was curious about this stand... sensor cleaning? what's that for?

Couldn't get anywhere near the model... what a rugby scrum! ah well, with 9mm you can wave in the general direction and get a reasonably framed shot

...and if that doesn't work, think laterally and shoot between the scrum's legs

Do you do trade-ins?

...and yes, for me - small is beautiful. I had a really good feeling shooting with the E-520 + 9-18 all day... really lightweight, stabilised and more than happy with the quality of these shots, all taken at ISO 800 / 400.

Kind Regards

Brian

Good to see some the photos from the HP stand, for some reason the HP stand was a major improvement on last year's.

They had a large format printer on the stand - some lovely quality prints there, and some superb deals on the HP B9180 at the show - even cheaper than the HP staff discount apparently!

Cheers

Resisted the B9180 on Sunday but I am weakening today. Like the Borg say "resistance is futile". Can I hold out until Wednesday?

Hope the Oly session on Tuesday goes well.

I'm sure it will... and don't worry, they'll probably have sold out by Wednesday :D

To be honest, mine spends most of the time burning electricity plus doing it's cleaning cycle... doesn't get used enough to justify the space. I should really just get a laser printer for the kids and use ProAm for 16x12 colour prints.

Cheers
