Haha, you wish... Model not included.

Sorry about delay getting lens cloths out, could use this as an excuse but that might be a fib...

That's a fantastic opportunity to photograph a beautiful model and be in with a chance of winning a great prize. Good luck to all who enter.

I suppose it's bad form to ask to borrow her lens cloth?

That will be, I guess, the pending Stylus XZ-10. "Only" a compact, maybe, but a stunning piece of technology in an incredibley small package. I'd absolutely love one!

I can just see how that conversation with my wife ends up... "Hey hunny, I'm just nipping up to Birmingham to photograph a beautiful model who's only wearing a dress made of lens cloths... Ow! What did you do that for?!?

How about, "I'm just off to the Focus show at Birmingam, I promise I won't bring anything home that couldn't be wrapped in a lens cloth!"

Re: Photograph this model at Focus and win the next Olympus camera...

I will confirm later but my take was that it would be the next Pen - the XZ-10 is already launched.

You can post your pictures of OM-D Lens Cloth Jane here or (and?) you can post via
Twitter with the hashtag #omgomd.

That will be even better! Either way it's a terrific incentive to visit focus and take some pictures.

Typical

I had my ticket and everything, but "family commitments" got in the way...

Oh well there's always Photokina to look forward to

Re: Photograph this model at Focus and win the next Olympus camera...

The prize is the next Micro Four Thirds Camera to be launched by Olympus. So which model needs replacing next?

In theory it should be the E-P3 and that would be interesting as there are rumours that it might be a new type of camera, possibly a Pen with a built-in EVF.

It would be even more interesting if it was the also rumoured "pro" OM-D, possibly with full AF functionality with 4/3 lenses!

But we'll just have to wait and see.

Nice to see you today Ian. Unfortunately after speaking to you I could find the girl again as they had taken her for a walk around. So no picture.
