Default Hi I'm new to the forum

Hi veryone I'm new here at the forum.
I have just made the upgrade from the Olympus E-500 to the E-3.
So I still have much to learn.
Why did I join this forum: it's really nice to see how everyone goes around with everyone and is learning fron eachother.
My English: Ok, I'm from Belgium so my native languace is Dutch (living in Flanders not far from Flanders Fields (The great war)). So pease excuse me if I make an mistake somewhere, I try to do my best.

I want to post already a test picture that I have made today.
Its done with the standard lens that was delivered with my E-500, the 14-45.
The E-3 feel a lot more solid, higher learning curve but looks promising.
Any comment or tips is welcome.
Thanks you the time you took for reading this.

Greetings from Belgium.

Welcome to Steve's! While this is a really nice image, it's posted at a size WAY too big to enjoy. I believe maximum size on the long side should be no more than 1024. I normally post at 950 on the long side and that seems to work out fine.

Hi Lordje: Welcome to the forum. Some great folks on this forum, who are very helpful, and kind to the new guys. (We only pick on each other when we are the old regulars. )

I recently went from the E-520 to the E-3. My first suggestion is to spend a lot of time with the E-3 users manual, and practice with the layout of the controls. A big part is learning all the controls, so you instantly know where to go to change anything when you are shooting. Also, read all the reviews that you can find on the E-3, starting with the review right here at Steves-Digicams.
http://www.steves-digicams.com/camer...lr-review.html

Also, get familiar with the wrotniak.net website, a very informative site on Olympus equipment. Here is his review on the E-3: http://www.wrotniak.net/photo/43/e3-rev.html

Good luck, and have fun with your camera. I love the way the E-3 feels and handles.

Welcome to the forum. One thing nice about being an amateur, I find there is an endless supply of knowledge here for you to tap into when you have a question about anything photographic. And the best part, it's cheap : )

Yeah, he got a number of Photo Of The Day winners with the E520. With the E3 he'll probably get a lot more and become really hard to live with on this forum.

LOL. You know, that reminds me, I have not even entered a single E-3 shot in the POTD contest. Maybe I need to start entering it again when I have the time to look thru and see if any are worth a try. You never know, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and then.

The reality is that work has taken so much time that I have hundreds of shots that I haven't even had time to upload to Smugmug. I thought I would be retired by now, but I've reset my goals to now try and retire by the time I reach 90.

Won't work...I tried..

Welcome aboard Lordje. Looking forward to more of your work. I'm still working with the E 500.
Your English is just fine, just hope you can speak American..
