Re: E-System lens and accessory hire - the details

Great that you took the initiative on this one. *chr

It deserves to be a great success. There is a lot of great stuff on the list too... I can see me being tempted in the future.

Re: Anyone still got their flash shoe blanking piece?

I watched mine disappear before my eyes! It pinged off when I was in my bedroom getting my camera out of the bag. I thought I saw the direction it went, and it couldn't have gone far, but that was...

That sounds excellent. If anyone locates this in the UK, please bump this thread with where and how much.

Sigma release new four thirds lenses

Just thought you'd like to know. One of them is the 10-20, which is good news if you ask me.

Re: Elements 5 + Raw

4.3 does work with elements 5. It's what i'm using.

Barrie, if you're trying to update camera raw, the new camera raw file needs to be copied over the old one.

If you want to figure out how to...

Re: Dynamic Range fix in Olympus E-3

Check before buying, to make sure the promotion is still going on, but sandisk extreme iii cards come with capture one LE, which is very good, and works well with E500 files.

At least, the 4gb...

Re: Dynamic Range fix in Olympus E-3

There are many tools out there and lightroom doesn't suit everybody. In my view it's better to start with freely available tools and when familiar with raw processing, try a few trials to see what...

Re: Dynamic Range fix in Olympus E-3

Elements is good.

However, don't overuse the highlight recovery or fill light sliders if elements is what you're using, as you will get some nasty artifacts between sky and land. I had this and...

Re: How do you store your images??

My methods are similar to yours, only i'll burn 2 dvds and have one as a viewing copy, and also use the HD. I'm thinking also about online storage, if anyone can recommend a company.

Can anybody...

Re: Dynamic Range fix in Olympus E-3

Oly master is OK really, just slow. And it doesn't have that much for processing multiple images. I'd start with that if you're finding raw daunting as you'll be able to relate it's options to your...

Re: Dynamic Range fix in Olympus E-3

It's cheaper than a new camera. If you're like me, you'll find that work eye opening and fun. Especially if you use something faster than Oly master, but it's simplicity will give you a good starting...

Re: Dynamic Range fix in Olympus E-3

I never had blown highlight problems with the e500. Just shoot in RAW. If I remember rightly, you can recover a very decent amount of highlight and shadow detail at RAW processing.

Re: Zuiko 1000mm f11

lol.

Don't think that would fit in many camera bags. You'd have to stuff it down your trousers. You'd walk like Herr Flick of the Gestapo, but you might get to take a few phone numbers home too.

Re: E-500 17.5-45 lens v Sigma 17-70 EX DC f2.8-4

I recommend the 14-42 3.5-5.6. It's excellent. Nice & compact too.

I don't think that sigma is available on 4/3.

I would have a serious grin on my face if they did.

For brightness, I gather the splitting of the light between live view sensor and viewfinder is at least partly responsible. Seeing as they're ...

Re: I may as well go first.

While I think about it. This camera was accused of being an ugly duckling on its release. Am I the only one on the planet who think it looks really nice?

Maybe that makes me a freak. I don't...
