My E-330 has the dual slots, and I think that the E-300 did also.
While I am not a fan of the xD cards, they have proven to be very important as a backup in the field when you suddenly realize that your CF card is full. The 2GB xD has been convently there several times so you don't even have to slow down when shooting.

Hey, we're always ready to help a poor, struggling real estate agent.

Wait. Steven, did we really say we would do that?

My sister is a real estate agent, so I'm always willing to help.

Actually I'd been taking some extra shots of a couple of home we have listed. The NWMLS is letting us post 25 shots now instead of 10. So we're taking advantage of it. A lot of people use the interweb thingy these days and appreciate seeing more of the places. Couple I did were just to romance the homes a little. Give the feel of being.
2 very different homes.


Hmm, they look a little overcooked in here, they're fine on the MLS, Oh well.
something I do for those dark verandas is to use ISO bracket, and merge the images together in one of those HDR apps, I use Oloneo but there are fee ones. Its a noisy process but it does help a lot

although, I guess the same could be accomplished in RAW, its a lot of jerking around to achieve virtually the same results.
ISO bracket gives 3 jpegs from a single drop of the shutter, so its not like bracketing off a tripod
for the utility of it this was made from a pole shot for added elevation

Nice shot Riley. That's a classic Ausie veranda roof isn't it.
I'm just starting to get into the 3 shot stuff and working with a couple of those free HDR programs. One just lets me merge the shots without playing with the tone mapping.
I've noticed a few agents on line these days using HDR, some actually look good, some look like they're selling wild neon flavoured night clubs.
Thanks for the input.

those bull nose verandas and steel roofs, at least they're continuous sheeting these days, and screwed into steel frames

yes i know the genre, not all that impressed with the batman comic look myself but the guys into it seem to make some trade.
I think the more natural it looks the better, which requires acute attention to WB, not all that easy to do without good tools when mixing daylight/flash/tungsten lighting.

Add in coloured or wooden ceilings and ugh! it can get messy

you can see this frame is pushed just a little by the sky lightness around foliage

That's a great description of almost everything in the early days of HDR.
