Default ...cranked up the relic E-300 today

I was to attend a 'new' city park dedication tomorrow but learned (Bonnie reminded me) we have a family wedding function tomorrow so I went to the new park a day early (today) and photographed it.
_______________________

Knowing I would only be doing the trail-walk today and it would be inside the cover with early morning sunlight......... I took the E-300 & 14-54, set the camera on 'P' and did the loop.

These are some of the files, the trip reminded me just how much I still like the old E-300. It has a place on the shelf for when I want it.

....this is a bit interesting! photo straight on is south -- The trailhead, here, is at the farthest point north in the park as shown on the poster image.

Nice shots Bob. Looks like the E-300 still has good results.

( I never owned the E-300, but I still have my E-330, and think it is a better camera than my E-520. )

The tabs on my E-300 CF door are worn out and broke off so it won't stay closed anymore...need a rubber band to hold it closed.

Looks like a very nice park, you have represented it well, well done to you and your "old" camera.

[email protected], thank you

[email protected], I held mine in place 'literally' with a band-aid for a year or so

I did replace mine with the part from Gray at USCamera (http://www.uscamera.com/ve7550.htm)

Was an easy job, I posted here at the time but cannot find that post now. If you should want I have a 'factory pdf' schematic that I used for reference and will PM to you, let me know if you are interested. My old post shows the schematic very well.

Good shots Bob. The E300 obviously works very well especially when there's a great lens attached. The guy behind them helps a little : )

Thanks Eric, like a great sports car in DRIVE, it'll getcha there regardless of fun. I just put the camera in 'P' and press the button (lol).

Where the 300 sparkles is the color, the Kodak sensor is just good in the old 8MP camera and I still like very much the styling and handling of it. I take it out quite often, the 300 is a perfect match for handling with the 50-200 and I use that combination fairly often.

@Steven ... yep, the 300 is as good today as it was 7-yrs ago, no reason not to use it occasionally when the fit is there, huh.

BTW, I think the 330 is a 'good looker' too, never had one in my hands but I have always liked the styling of the 300 & 330.

Nice, little travelogue, Bob. Reminds me I need to get off my butt and do some away-from-home shooting.
