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.

Re: Special Session with Olympus tomorrow, FOI

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

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

Brian
