Re: First snaps...with E-1

Lovely shots Pete:

I am really envious of your 'new' E-1 - I'd love to get my hands on one but finances don't allow it . Although I have an E-3, I'd really like an E-1 too, as a second body. Ah well, I can dream!

Am I correct in thinking they were taken around Old Winchester Hill? Lovely scenery - I discovered this place during the summer, and hope to go back soon to do some more photography.

Well done - the camera looks a good 'un!!

Re: First snaps...with E-1

tlove, you are spot on Old Winchester Hill and around HMS Mercury. You have got an E-3 I am really shocked that you would want an E-1 as well. I got the E-1 as I could not afford an E-3!!
Andy, I am shooting Raw although I need to look at that, as although on Sunday I took about 200 pics at the above and down at Portsmouth Harbour the harbour ones came out with a JPEG copy.
Correction they all came out with a JPEG copy, some more homework is needed.



Regards

Re: First snaps...with E-1

I like the colours, I have an E1 which I use in tandem with an E510, I'm not convinced that I'm missing very much by not having an E3, I would prefer to invest in better quality glass, who knows one day that may change.

I look forward to seeing more of your work in due course.

Cheers
Neil

Re: First snaps...with E-1

Peter L,

The setting Raw and jpeg must be on. I always found raw a lot more reliable on my E1 and prefer to do the PP at the laptop. If you can get hold of this book

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1259

It will really help you get around the E1. Quite a few on here use the E1 and it is a good resource for advice. Good luck.

Sorry to shock you Peter - just call me greedy .

I usually find when I'm out and about that when I have the macro lens (and ring flash etc.) on the camera I see a bird I want to photograph, then when I have the Bigma on the camera I see an insect/flower etc. that I want to photograph .

Much as I would like another E-3 body, it's completely out of the question, and I've heard so much (and not just from people on this forum) about how great the E-1 is, I've decided that I would really like to invest in one of those - except I can't afford one of those either !
