Re: More adders...

Great shots and a very nice mossy and pink setting.

I guess the advantage of a 6D and three flashes is that it's nice and big to hide behind!

Re: Brown Hare Close Up

Shot 3 reminds me of my daughter trying to hide: "If I just cover my eyes, Daddy won't see me!"

Very obliging hare.

Re: Winter Grebe

Cracking light and a couple of good photos as a result. The water always looks better in winter, too, like it's really cold.

Classic grebe shot: Bottom facing towards the camera!

Re: Luton Camera Repair Services

Shame about the camera but glad that the repair went well.

I used Luton to repair the screen, clean the sensor and service my E3. Very reasonably priced and a great service.

Re: Olympus, a shot in the foot?

Exactly! It entirely depends on what you want from a camera and, like anything in life, it is a compromise.

My 0.02 - I have three cameras: Oly Tough, G3 and E3.

Re: Photographing Birds in Flight

Phill,

Somebody may be able to correct me but I think the central focusing point on the E510 is more sensitive than the other two so select that one. Also select C-AF and make sure you track the...

Re: Global Economy's ?

It may be a bit late to summarise the solution to European bovine integration:

You try to homogenise their milk production and...

Re: dodgy ISO and lack of shallow DOF - upgrade to E-5 or just drop Oly altogether?

If you don't want to spend over 700 on a lens then there is little point in spending 1400 on a camera with pretty much the same sensor as your E-600. Glass is the way forward if you stick with...

Re: Is there a soundproof room where I can scream, scream, scream?

Gosh I am confused.

I think I will stick to my compact-style interchangeable lens camera.
With a Micro 4/3rds sensor.
That is full frame.
But only half the size of a minature format camera....

Re: Simple P&S Camera?

I had an IXUS 60 and it was brilliant for four years with cracking image quality (A3 pics on my wall) for the size. It came with me on trips that included the humidity of being deep in Asian jungles...

The only downside for me is the spreadsheet application because I use keyboard shortcuts where possible in Excel and there are some differences in keystrokes to...

Re: Going from still to moving??

Karen,

The bird in the first picture is not sharp because you have camera shake, rather than a lack of DOF.


Short tip:

Use f7.1, increase the ISO by a stop. Check the DOF preview if you...

I am an aperture priority man for the main, too.

My process is something like:

Re: E5 and Top Pro lenses

I have to say that the 14-35mm feels great on the E3/E5 with the battery grip. I will happily admit to cranking it up to F2 rather than concentrating on the DOF - just because I could!

I like the...

Re: Sending prints by post

I just sent some A3 for framing and they turned up okay. I used corrugated plastic, tissue paper and an A3 sized box about 3/4" deep.
