Default My sensor is good for something - Or a walk in the park

Terry and I went to try 'stuff' in the park, with the cameras today.

Given a tripod and time the old E500 makes me happy. First 2 are pictures in light. Second two are 4 shot panos with MS ICE.

A person could get lost in there, those old trees are pretty much giants. The woodpeckers love it in there.

Wassa ya think..????

Looks good Ken! Love the shades of green that you captured there.

That looks like it is a really dense forest! Don't go walking into it without a compass!! I don't think a portable GPS would work because the trees would block the satellite.

Very nice. I was looking to see if I could spot "Bigfoot".

Thanks guys, appreciate you looking in.
It's fun in there but pretty dense. First time in a while I've actually gone out with a plan instead of taking snapshots. The early afternoon sun is good in the forest. Made the mistake of going down to the beach, couple of hundred yards downhill, the light there was awful.

James, Bigfoot is at the base of the cedar in the second pic. That was what I was going for.

Nice shots. The old e-500 takes very nice pics. I still have mine and occasionally use it though with the very limited ISO range and our weather up here it mostly gathers dust.

Thanks John. It's silly to even think about "Pushing!" the ISO over 320 with it. Just hate it when other people are taking shots in the cellar without flash..
Just got to use my tripod more, it does like longer exposures.

Ken: keep your E-500, but go ahead an pick up and E-3 or E-30 body. I recommend the E-3, especially since it is weatherized.

I really like those photos, Ken. I'd go walking in there in a flash - beautiful.
