    Re: Can anyone help?

    There is a company making grips for the E4x0 and the E510

    They are Ownuser http://www.ownuser.com.tw/e_index.htm

    There are several posts on this forum about it. Try searching for ownuser or grip

    I own one of them.

          Why don't you look into selling the E-510 and get an E-3, you can still register for the free grip until the 31st March aswell.

          I am sure you will have no problems selling the E-510 either here or on eBay.

            Hi.

            On the 3rd party grip, heard they are pretty well built and for the E-510, you have to plug the extra wire into the USB for full 1/2 press AF functions as well as the additional 2 pieces of BLM-1.

            Sadly they do not have any for my E-330.

              I understand the grip you refer to does use Olympus BLM-1 batteries. In fact using different battery clips you can use a variety of batteries, including AAs. I have had several positive reports about the grip. It connects via the E-510's USB port using a short cable and looks like it offers good functionality and features.

                It's a pain when this happens, but the E3 was the worst kept secret/longest coming camera in the history of photography
                I suppose the thing to remember is that
                a) your E510 takes as good a picture today as when you bought it, and
                b) the E520 will be along any minute.

                  It was an option Jim but I'm in the middle of building a photographic gallery in Eyemouth and its taking all my money at the moment but I will probably get the E-3 a bit later in the year or maybe even wait a while and see what happens in a few months time. I am however going to get the grip because the camera does feel a bit small in hand at times.

                    You may be interested in this thread: http://www.fourthirds-user.com/forum...ead.php?t=1314

                    which links with this video:
                    http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...89360175332242

                    Personally, I prefer the (relatively) small size of the camera on its own. However, I can see how it helps shooting portrait format. I'll see how I get on when I get the HLD2 for my E1 (sound of panting in anticipation...) before I buy an Ownuser.

                    As DTD says, not only will the E520 be along soon, but so, in all probability, will be the E4! E3 bargains will then be widely available...
