Thanks guys. I picked up the legacy OM Zuiko 50mm macro for a song several years ago. Don't use it often, but it seems to work better with the E-330 than the E-520.

It is probably my imagination, but I seem to like the colors and images from the E330 better than the E-520. But, I usually shoot with the E520 because it has IS, as I usually have a longer lens attached.

.....didn't Olympus switch sensors coming off the E-330. I still like using my old 300 for reasons I've stated in the past including the color results.

Yeah, the E330 was the first Olympus DSLR to use a Panasonic sensor. The live view modes on the E330 are a better implementation for live view shooting then anything since. The E520 also was the first Olympus DSLR to use a pretty heavy-handed AA filter in front of the sensor, so I wouldn't be suprised if the E330 didn't resolve a lot more fine detail.

The shine on the water drop on the petal is nice.

I like to use solar light to shoot flowers, in my home studio always the colors turns weird on it and I can't find the reason why.

Thanks Marcelo. My flower garden is at the back of the house, and faces east. So if I can get up early enough on the weekends, the shooting conditions are just right. I can't shed any light (pun intended) on your home studio shots and their color. I only shoot flowers outdoors.

Gary T is the indoor flower master, maybe he will comment on his setups for shooting flowers in the home.

I *normally* use existing light and a longer exposure with indoor set-ups. I never use on-camera flash. If I must use a flash, it is always off-camera and always diffused in some manner. I may or may not use a little backlight. Depends on the flower and effect I want. Harsh light (built-in flash or on-camera flash) flattens and hardens them. I try to use a background that makes them pop and stand out. I feel flowers are suppose to be delicate and fragile. Water droplets always makes them look fresh and alive.
