  • Updating firmware would be a good idea if you can...but only possible on older PCs and Macs - newer machines won't run the Olympus software required to run the firmware update. My E-1 does not ...
  • Excellent tip - thanks I'm going to try that Yes these are the settings I've used so far Thanks - will play with that Yes - had to do that with my Pentax cameras in the past too Have more BLM1s ...
  • I feel kind of dirty. This weekend I've been playing with another camera body and the E-1 has been left at home none the wiser..... The back story is that I am going to Scotland later this year ...
  • Thank you for posting these and the link to your gallery - I'd recommend that anyone who is interested should take a few minutes to look at the slideshow on that gallery - there are some very ...
  • Hi Ian, Enjoy the new camera - it is indeed a good deal of fun and very capable in most circumstances - a recent update to the shooter's report of the LX100 on the Imaging Resource website might be ...
  • Excellent advice thanks!  I discovered the Wrotniak reference guide a couple of nights ago and worked my way through it when setting the camera up last night.  Also now bookmarked on my iPad.  The ...
  • I used the D Lux for a work event the other day and when perusing my files at home afterwards realised that extracting a photo from video may have been rather helpful at one point. So I decided to ...
  • Nice set and image number 6 is a real stand out for me....excellent!
  • I'm off to Scotland in November for a landscape photography course and after the tutor asked whether my camera had live view I decided that perhaps I should bring along an upgrade to the E-1.... ...
  • Much as I really love my E-1 I'm not sure it would be my first choice if macro was your thing.  Wouldn't a body with live view and a much better (and articulated) rear screen potentially be much ...
  • Replied in A Triumph
    Thank you Roel - I also often shoot portrait, and that's one of the reasons why I like 43 format cameras - 3:2 doesn't quite do it for me.  And oddly enough I've lived in this neighbourhood for ...
  • Replied in A Triumph
    Thanks Andrew - I have a camera with a tilting screen but I love using my E-1 more :-) I agree about the building too - otherwise it would have been just another car shot and somehow I thought the ...
  • Thanks Jason - I did push the shadows quite a bit (around +60!) and I agree that any more would need to have been just a local adjustment to the car.  In fact I think the image would be better if ...
  • I really like the second of these two images - there's something slightly comical about that smallish dog walking around through big footprints and with tiny humans in the background.  And ...
  • Personally I'd leave your telezooms behind....you've some nice primes and it's unlikely you'll need to go beyond the 75mm in your gear list.  I'd definitely take the 17/25/45 and either put up ...
  • Replied in A Triumph
    A photograph from this afternoon's dog-walk.  I went on a new route and came across this scene - a lovely old Triumph Herald and I think it looks quite good against the old brick building behind ...
  • Yes - I love it, it's my only dSLR and excels at tones and colour if you keep ISO as low as possible. I'd strongly recommend an upgrade from the 14-45 (I've had reasonably good and rather poor ...
  • I like those - and particularly like the black and white images - I'd probably plump for something between the two: I can see why there was a comment about taming the highlights but I'd probably ...
  • Very nice - especially the second:I agree with the comments about how well the sun is framed by the blooms.
  • Not what I set out expecting to do, but when I saw this juvenile heron in our local park I thought I'd see what I could get....GM1 with its tiny kit lens.
