    Fun with the E-1

    It seems we are lacking an E-1 thread. So let's put that right here and now
    I love this camera. I might love the E-3 but can't afford it, so this antiquated, 5mp beauty will have to do for the time being.





    Please feel free to contribute.....otherwise I'll be forced to keep posting my own rubbish
    Best wishes
    Mike

    Re: Fun with the E-1

    Hi Mike
    These are all great - my son has abandoned his more modern Nikon dslr and fallen in love with my elderly E1.

    There is a certain glow about it which you just don't seem to get elsewhere.

    lovely stuff.

    Just this guy you know

    Re: Fun with the E-1

    The E-1 is such a lovely camera, very much in the spirit of the OM-1. Unfortunately, I killed mine in a motorbike accident a few months ago. Here are a few from the last 12 months though:

    11-22mm


    OM 100mm f/2.8


    11-22mm

    Really sorry - senior moment . . . . except, I have two pairs of problem names
    Mike / David
    Tony / Alan
    they are completely interchangeable in my brain, basically the same name!

    I sometimes make money out of my travel photography . . . but I always do it! and you?

    HI Helen
    They're all with zuiko lenses - the exif should be there (I'm away from aperture).
    I had the 11-22, 14-54, 50-200 and 50 macro on that trip. It was a torture test of the 'weatherproofing'; very very windy, and great clouds of dust everywere.

    I really like the Olympus lenses, all excellent.

    Hi Jorgen
    you should be able to get one secondhand as cheap as chips - and they last and last, so no fears there.
    That 11-22 is a fine lens isn't it.
    I love the balloon pic especially

    These are all stunning shots... why would you need anything else? especially for web publishing. The colour is *wonderful*

    I love that portrait Jono... fabulous!

    The 11-22 is a fabulous lens. I did consider a secondhand E-1, but have found that I would like more pixels and IS. The ideal solution would be a weather-sealed E-520 with the viewfinder of the E-3 and the shutter-sound of the E-1. For some reason, Olympus doesn't make that (Why they don't make cameras according to my particular needs is really strange, isn't it? I would promise to buy at least two if they did )

    Nothing beats Olympus for travel anyway. 2-4 lenses does anything I'll ever need when I'm out an about. And apart from motorbike accidents, they take whatever I throw at them

    Hi Jono,

    No problem,

    I'm totally an amateur. Never been paid for anything, although I have had a few images published by the National Trust. This was the first, again E-1:

    Jorgen,

    You gotta love those E-1 colours
    And I agree, the 11-22mm is a stellar lens. I have it with the 14-54 and a bunch of others, and it's usually glued to the E-500. Great combination!

    Re: Fun with the E-1

    I really think that the E-1 has a certain 'something' about the colours it produces... beautifully balanced richness and contrast.

    Just fabulous!

    Hi Jorgen,

    This is the Severn Bridge connecting England with Wales across (as you might guess) the River Severn

    This is taken from the English side.
