    Re: Just to prove ...

    Phil remember Stephen himself is pretty unique, long may he continue to drop in with his friends, how else can we show him the error in his ways?

      Yep it's all about education Ed. One way or the other.

        Thanks everyone for your support. It's most touching - in fact you're all touched!

        In my defence, it was never my attempt to prove or disprove the superiority of one camera over another. Every make is capable of excellent results, and in the end it boils down to what is more comfortable for the individual.

        Long before I was a Mod, it was made clear by Ian that he was happy enough with occassional photographs from other makes and models of camera, as long as it was made clear in the text. I believe I have fulfilled that requirement fairly plainly.

          To be really honest, I think it's an oversight to actually not to include serious Olympus compacts now as they emulate the E-system cameras to a large degree & some of us use these cameras. I can even use the FL50 flash on my Stylus 1. Mind you, I basically have to hold the outfit by the flash as it is a little top heavy.

          Anyhow, I took this photo (on a Fuji FinePix S5500 before I had discovered Olympus) at IronFest 2005 & was pleased with such a fluke shot. I haven't been able to duplicate this on my Olympus cameras yet.

          I hope you like it.

          After that little bit, I really like Stephens photo.

            Yes, I was being pedantic, but just to make a point!

              Oh, thanks. I had decided to modify that comment, but you beat me to it.

                Great timing! I wonder if the guy opposite captured it as well?

                  Some people on the forum who shoot regularly with an E-System camera often have a second (non-Olympus or Olympus OM) camera as its fulfills a different purpose. They are still the same great photographers who shoot the same great pictures and its nice that we can (occassionally and perhaps tounge in cheek) share these pictures whilst still promoting the merits of Olympus digital photography. As Brian put it, the great thing about this forum is the tolerance and respect we have for each other (and our occassional odd shooting habits) and long may it reign.

                  I was looking to see if I had any shots featuring the same boats but alas. Anyway, here are a couple from 2009 taken with my Fuji compact but slightly tweaked in Olympus Viewer 3 (so does that count?). I was still shooting OM as my main camera in those days and didn't get an Oly digital until the E-M5 came out (great camera).

                  Good weather for December, Stephen. For those who don't know Mevagissey it is a quaint old fashioned fishing village, quite small, but very picturesque. Here it is in summer... and raining.

                    Lovely colours and sharpness. I had a Fuji a while back, and though it was a cheap compact, it produced super colours and surprisingly sharp images.
