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.

  • A very enjoyable image, gives you the real sense of being there. Do you recall which lens you used? Thanks for sharing, its amazing what one can find when perusing old hard drives.  ;) Regards, Conrad
  • Monty, Interesting shots. To my eye they both have the appearance of mallards (i.e. shape of head and bill) but obviously are not typical mallards. My guess is that they are a mallard hybrid of ...
  • Michael and Henry, Thanks for taking the time to respond. You've been very helpful. As for the switch from Canon to Olympus, I've heard nothing but complaints from her about the Canon interface so ...
  • Created discussions SH-1 vs. SH-50
    Hi, I'm new to this forum but not to dPreview. (I spend most of my time in Oly SLR.) Anyway, I plan to purchase a new P&S for my wife to replace her 8+ year old Canon Powershot and have pretty much ...
  • Mario, A nice site with a lot to explore. I enjoyed the "Tech Talk" on some of the more recent posts. I also like your decision to limit the number of photos in each album, makes you want see more ...
  • I particularly like #6-10, they have an E-1 look to them, at least to my eye. Did you use liveview when shooting? My one complaint about the E-520 is the lack of the tilt/swivel screen. I had an ...
  • Actually just a dandelion waiting for the next strong gust of wind to blow it to the four winds. Regards, Conrad
  • Ben, That doesn't surprise me but then don't you have (or at lest had) at least one copy of every DSLR ever manufactured? I don't know if I can keep up. ;) Thanks for the eBay link, I'll take a ...
  • Peter, Thanks. I think mine might be out of warranty but plan to send it in nevertheless. Regards, Conrad
  • Ben, I'll admit that I'm one of those. I kept reading about how wonderful it js and I saw many photos justifying that claim but initially was reluctant to buy a "relic".  ;) But then I finally did ...
  • Gary, A beautiful shot. I here one of these most nights now that its warmer out and the windows are open. I've not yet been able to spot one though. How did you get it to strike such a nice pose? ;) ...
  • Does anyone have any experience or opinions on this Bower lens (or Bower lenses in general). I am not familiar with them but this particular lens is listed on B&H for $239 stating that it is a ...
  • drj3, Cristof, Thanks for the responses, it looks like I have two possibly unrelated issues (the clicking noise and the aperture lock). Now that I think about, I think the clicking sound has been ...
  • A problem developed this afternoon while using my 35mm macro lens. I was taking some closeups in the garden I think at f8 and after each shutter click the view in the OVF got darker and darker. It ...
  • Replied in Shutter counts
    Siegfried, I'm sure its posted somewhere here in the forum but to save you having to search the basic steps are: 1. Turn the camera ON; 2. Open the memory card door (a "card door open" message will ...
  • Mervin, I have an E-600 and an E-520, both with IS. I don't ever recall hearing a "tink - tink' sound from either, but then I haven't really been listening for it either. I'll check my E-600 when I ...
  • Is the loner trying to catch up with the group or get away from them? Regards, Conrad
  • I don't think I have a favorite as the progression works so well as a whole. It's not often that we take the time to actually stop and watch the sunset. Thanks for capturing this one for us. Regard ...
  • Replied in Abstracts
    To my eye #3 stands out both from a color perspective and from the patterns that are created. I find the greens in #1 and #2 to be a bit intense. #3 is one of those photos that you can stare at ...
  • Very nice photos. I particularly like the colors of the last two. Thanks for sharing and showing that an obsolete camera and lens can still provide beautiful images.  ;) Regards, Conrad
