Default Bye-bye E-620...

... hello, E-30!

I just picked up an E-30 for a REALLY good price. It should be here in about 1 1/2 weeks.

A photographer with your skill should have a camera that uses it better - you will enjoy the E-30.

How are you faring with the weather that's been hitting the Tennessee Valley area? Is it far enough away from you?

I went from the 510 to the 30 and the change was amazing...the quality of my photos increased 10 fold. The exposure was much more accurate and not near as contrasty....

You will love the E-30.

Good Luck!

Jim

Thanks, Ted. Coming from a photog of your caliber, that means a LOT.

We're getting hammered pretty good and expecting tornadoes this afternoon through about 10pm.

You are going to have fun learning all the options in your new camera.

(Of course, you know that now you have the burden of posting outstanding E-30 shots like Zig used to post.)

Well, that could be a problem.
