Re: It came away in her hands

Re: Filter protection or no filter protection

Thanks for all the replies. I have always used filters and like many of you have always used my lens hoods as well so I'm pretty sure my OCD will kick in as always and I'll not break the habit of a...

Filter protection or no filter protection

Hi everyone,

In all my years with photography I have religiously added filters to my lenses as a form of protection for the sacred front element whether it be Skylight filters for the bygone days...

The sideburns are just passing through

The Tour of Britain passed close by today on Stage 2 of the race so I thought I'd try and garb some shots as the riders whizzed by. No pressure, one chance only and only a small amount of time to get...

Re: How to claim your commemorative Olympus OM1 miniature

Mine arrived today. Thanks very much.

Just one question as there aren't any instructions - How the heck do you get the film in it?!!:D

Re: A Couple Of Landscapes

The Whitby Pier shot almost grabs you by the lapels and drags you through the picture to the end of the pier. Very dynamic. I like it.

Re: XZ-1 goes to Greece

Catherine,

From Greece to below zero temperatures must be a bit of a shock!

Just a comment about the XZ1. I bought a VF2 viewfinder for mine and I find it makes a great difference in using and...

Re: My first wedding...with an e520!

Janet,

I agree with the previous comments. Based on the images you posted here it looks like you did a great job. It's not all about the camera. The quality of the roses and trumpet image shines...

Re: Olympus Ignored By Media & Retailers?

My recent experience with a local retailer may go some way to explain why Olympus may not get the billing in stores that we would like to see.

In May I bought an XZ1 and shortly after decided that...

Re: 1940's Ladies

Great examples of what the 70-300 is capable of (in the right hands). All good shots, but like the others I think no. 3 is the stand out shot.

Now is it just me or was Nicole Kidman actually there?

Re: To Pen or not to Pen

Re: yet another 50-200 question

Roberta, I have a 620 and use a 50-200SWD and in my opinion there is a difference in speed between it and non SWD lenses. I'm sure there would be a further upgrade in focussing speed on an E3 or 5,...
