  • Carl, outside of the USA, the E-5  has  been a 'discontinued item' for over a year now. Olympus Australia for example only mentions the E-5 on the download/support pages where we can access user ...
  • The E-5 has it Peter
  • Great shots Milt. Those storks are not the prettiest of birds. Good to hear that they are doing well. Peter
  • Replied in Hummingbirds
    very nice Pam. The front on shot is my favourite Peter
  • A wonderful set.   All birds are nicely in focus so you must have chosen the perfect angle. Peter
  • I could tell you again what I think of that manual Nikkor lens and how well you use it . . . Beautiful bird images. Peter
  • beautiful shots. I  like the colours, especially the duck images, , and the blackbird shot has a 3D feel to it. Which lens did you use George? Peter
  • Replied in Three Photos
    Three excellent bird images Richard, from your archive I see from the capture dates. The middle shot is especially good. I hope your recovery is going well. Peter
  • Replied in In the backyard
    taken yesterday with my my old E-300. A Crested Pigeon sitting quietly on the grass. Raw pp using Lr5.7, cropped to about 30% of the original frame Peter
  • Replied in 300 + 300 =
    Gday John glad you liked the pics. my point is that the much maligned E-300 (possibly) has a better sensor than the E-1. This place is overflowing with E-1 nostalgia and folks singing its praises, ...
  • Created discussions 300 + 300 =
    The E-1  gets a lot of press here, but IMO  the old E-300 can match it for IQ with the right lens in front. Peter
  • how many shooters will there be. So for us, it's one camera for each of us and one spare. One shooting long, one shooting wide. at least 2 bodies capable of video. And as Roel said, it helps if the ...
  • would have looked even funnier if the guy at the end was holding this
  • There are times and places where no other lens will get the shot. The below are frames taken from a long video I shot with the ZD8mm on the E-5. Shot last November from the front seat of a ...
  • Ducks certainly count Richard, and cute they are too. In my country we have a species of Teal that looks very similar to your duck. The last shot in your set is especially nice with the dappled ...
  • Once again you give us a splendid set of small birds Paul. NYC is not (from my global perspective) a place where I expect there top be so many bird species. Peter
  • Congratulation on capturing the Thrush Makarand. You had some luck go your way - he stayed around long enough for you to remove the EX-25. If the rains hold off perhaps you might have another ...
  • Hi Richard, great to see that you are back ! The engine process has been available for selection for some time now. If you look under the Settings tab, and then Process you may select between 2003, ...
  • Thanks Bob. As much as they might look the similar, the Oystercatchers in Nth America are different species to ours, both the black ones and the pied (black and white) ones. 30 mins on the net and ...
  • EDIT: repost. Sorry Richard I put the initial post in the wrong place . . taken a few weeks ago - SE coast of Australia The Sooty Oystercatcher haematopus fuliginosus These Australian birds are ...
