    Olympus, but not the E-P1, thread

    I was looking through some old files from my C3040Z and thinking I don't need the E-P1, I just need to use what I've got more!

    The fast lens on the C3040Z was very handy sometimes.

    But please, don't mind me, post more images

    Great photographs Will. Olympus used to produce wonderful compact cameras in my opinion. These are from the C4000z.

    Will and Wouter -- thanks for sharing the great pix! Wouter -- putting that one in the family photo album, just in case. I think mom will be surprised.

    Lili, your compliments were warmly appreciated and, as the quote goes, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet

    Wouter I love the cow shot. There is something a bit special about the images from the old Olympus compacts that I miss. Makes me think that if the E-P1 can also produce that special something then it might be worth serious consideration.

    Helen, kweide and Oxide blue, many thanks for your comments, glad you like my efforts.

    Re: Olympus, but not the E-P1, thread

    Thanks Will,
    it was a lucky shot, I was playing around panning and had latched onto these 2 girls on a scooter. The police car (carabinieri) drove in at the right moment.
    The red flash and emergency phone nr make a lot of the colour.
    More Olympus from Bologna, I perhaps used too much noise filter on this.

    At that time I was using only JPG.

    Nice snake shot, the boy doesnt look too sure , thats for sure!

    Re: Olympus, but not the E-P1, thread

    everytime i've sold a camera or lense i've regretted it! the cameras especially go down in value so fast! i gave my whole 20d setup to a photographer friend in canada. her pleasure more than money and i just wasn't using it. bought back the canon elfs 230 and 430 and the g5. every camera has a special quality. these taken with the first and i doubt, forty thousand dollars of equipment later, i've ever done any better.
