Is that an Olympus E500? Is it any good? I was thinking of getting one to replace my Fuji FinePix F455. The F455 works well when the lighting is good and has the advantage of being the size of a packet of fags (so easily hidden away when trouble might be looming). It is also easy to poke through fences. The disadavantage of the F455 is that in poor lighting conditions, it is not very good, the images often being very 'speckly'. The limited amount of manual control available can be used to open up the aperture to help overcome this but then depth of focus is reduced. The lens of my F455 also suffers from spherical abberation, this is not normally noticeable unless there are long, straight objects near the edges of the frame (where they appear curved).PeterH said:maybe we could all club together and by one then all use it on diffrent days ....lol
As good as thay are i got a e500 its not what i want to carry around all day
Aye good Point, i think these 'big' cameras have voice recording but i wouldnt make good use of it anyway, and these cameras generally have a fast n/o FPS eg 8. My Next Lens for my 350D is the 70-200 f4 L LensBill EWS said:Hi LesJordans,
With Respect, don't be fooled by the hype! The Canon lenses, sensor and processor are all pretty much the same, so what extra are you getting for the money! Not a Lot, I don't think. I could have spent another £100 on the 'Grip', which is no more than a spare battery holder and doesn't help weight and bulk wise' either.
The 350D Kit I bought has all the fascillities that I require in my type of photography. Two lenses that cover a great range from 18mm to 200mm, Macro and a neat 'servo' that allows the Auto Focus to follow a moving object (such as a train) and keep it in focus until you take the picture. Presets for taking Scenic (maximum depth of field) or Portrait (miniumum depth of field on character) and Shutter Speed to stop fast moving objects. Not to forget Auto Flash for when it's required. You can also change the ASA (ISO) settings from 100 to 1800 at the click of a switch.
All I need to carry, on a photographic outing, all in my light weight camera bag. There are probably dozens of other fascillities that I will never use, nor would the average photographer!!!
If you can afford to spend nearly £2000 on the high range model, why not buy something closer to the 350D range and book a great 'travel' holiday and take lots and lots of lovely pictures!!!!!
