    bbodine9,
    Did you have the image stabilization on in the E3?...and if so, what mode?
    I just got this combo and haven't put it on a monopod yet, but will soon.

    Cindy this was shot using the ancient E-1 on a monopod that day. Shutter speed was 1/250 sec at f3.0. The lens was the 50-200 original edition at 130mm. Hope this helps.

    OOps! I misread. E1 did a great job.

    Hi Bruce
    this is a lovely shot - the glow on his body . . . .
    of course, you made it and you're the photographer, but the E1 does have a certain something with colour.

    Just this guy you know

    Thanks Joan and Jono! Yes I think parting with the E-1 would be very hard for me to do in spite of its obvious shortcomings compared to the newer units on the market. I also must contribute some of the look to Picture Window Pro latest beta version. I like working with orphans I guess!
