About me:

To continue to learn and improve my photographic skills with whatever equipment I am currently blessed to have. It is my belief that it is not the equipment that makes the photographer. Great photographs can be made with whatever equipment is in the hands of a great photographer. I'm not there yet and may never achieve "greatness" but it's still my goal.

    but I do have a Jack so it rhymes. ;) Regards, Conrad

  • I prefer the dark background, helps the flower to stand out. What is it by the way? Regards, Conrad
  • Replied in New old E-1
    I gave my daughter my E-600 rather than give up my E-1 and haven't missed it. ;) You should see if you can find another as it's a joy to work with. Regards, Conrad
  • John, This seems to have done it, the E-1 now recognizes my 16 GB CF card without the card error. I would add one tip ... When you go to format the card (at least in Windows 7) it defaults to FAT32 ...
  • it's been a few months but I think I have finally solved my "Card Error" problem, but do have a few more questions. To solve the problem I did update the firmware to ver.1.5 and formatted the CF ...
  • Replied in On the wing
    A grey day along Long Island Sound at Southport Beach in Connecticut. These three happened along with little advance warning. This was a good opportunity to try out my new E-30, which I'm ...
  • Rating only those that I own and use ... 1. E-1 2. E-30 3. E-520 4. E-600 Regards, Conrad

  • John, Thanks for the advice, I'll give it a try when I get home tonight. Hopefully that will solve the problem. Regards, Conrad
  • Created questions Card Error! message on E-1
    Hi, I'm getting an intermittent "Card Error!" on my E-1. It will turn on fine and I can shoot for a while but eventually, particularly after it goes to sleep, it won't work and the card error comes ...
  • Replied in On the pond ...
    Just letting the assembled entourage of mallards, teals, grebes and wood ducks know that he is in fact "King of the Pond", thank you. Regards, Conrad
  • Replied in Conrad,
    Thanks for taking my comments in the way they were offered. I do love railroad photographs so please be careful. Being near a grade crossing where trains typically blow their horns is helpful. ...
  • Both nice photos, nice blue in the sky and I always love railroad photographs. With that said I prefer the second because the photographer (you) were adjacent to the track (rather than in the gage ...
  • Cathedral Basilica of St. Joseph, San Jose ... Regards, Conrad
  • Replied in Wavescape
    Rich, Thanks. It's the Pacific, taken from an overlook on the Big Sur Highway just south of what I believe to be the Big Creek Bridge. This is the view of the bridge from the same location. I wish ...
  • George, A very nice scene. It really gives the sense of an early morning on the beach. I also didn't need to check the EXIF data to know that it was taken with the E-1. Regards, Conrad
  • Replied in Wavescape
    I just liked the blue-greens and the watercolor quality. Taken with the E-520 and 40-150 kit lens. Regards, Conrad
  • Pacific coast yesterday afternoon. Regards, Conrad
