Well done and a touch of good luck. I have started using my 14-54
at 14mm and holding my E500 over my head and guessing downwards to
get some people/group shots (like PJ's used to do in the old days).
It sometimes takes 2 or 3 to get it just right (or some PP
cropping) but it works very well. Works good with the FL50 too

2 or 3 is pretty good!!! I'm sure fin uture incarnations of the E500 there will be a flip it screen with live preview (as in the E330), but in the meantime, a little bit of guesswork goes a long way. After all, dopn't so many photojournalists also simply put the camera over their head and snap ?? You see it on the news all the time

It is nice to have the great LCD that is on the 500.

Yep - its large enough and bright enough.

Here is an example . .

Excellent example of what is possible.
