On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (374 comments in total)

Brownie camera for this old dinosaur. Then a Kodak Instamatic 100 with flash cubes that rotated, four shots to a cube! First SLR was a Canon T-70.

jrg: I still have my 2 E-1's too but haven't charged them in years. However all my 43 lenses, specifically my 50-200, are still in action on my E-M1 via adapter. The 43 System served me ably from 2004 to 2010 and I got a lot of good pics with them. No regrets and many fond memories.

No, just three, the 50-200, 35 macro, and the 14-54.

There's an old saying in this still relativity young digital world, and that's "don't ever sell your Uzi 2100." I still have mine and loved it. What a camera. ..! I should dig mine out and slap some AA's in and shoot around. Oh the early 2000s! Takes you back!

On article Throwback Thursday: Olympus E-10 (160 comments in total)

Gosh! Wow! Takes me back, too. I always wanted one but around that time and when the E-20 came out I had already shelled out a lot for the Uzi 2100 and the 5050. I still dreamed however of owning an E-10 or an E-20. Lots of accessories came with it.

Why no similar focal length primes to compare to? Why can't the Panny Leica be in the comparison chart, and how about Olympus' 25mm offering?

Good pick for a nostalgia spotlight! I had one and took some good pics with it. And it was Sony's first real home run hit with the critics back then too.

A big loss. I'll miss his input and gifts as a writer.

virgil1612: Please keep the old one as an option. I like it much more. I'm sure I'm not the only one. That black background is, for me, DPR's signature. Every other site is white. I love your black site.

Yeah, you nailed it, the black b.g. is DP's signature. It helped to make it what was and made it successful IMO.

No GX8 option to be used in the compare mode?

pleytime: The Rapid Black strap seems much better than this one. It's more flexible and you don't have to wriggle your hand into it as you would have to with this and other camera straps. I have the Rapid Black attached at the side of my OM-D5 instead of at the tripod connector.

How did you attach it? It's a screw mount.

I don't see how this Slide makes the camera any stabler than my Black Rapid. Am I missing something? Because it's attached at two points?

Overpriced and over-hyped.
