Gary, I agree completely-

Its the size of the kit that really matters! Now if I can delicately get my husband to understand that as well, perhaps we are on our way to a solution where the SP-590 stays and the E-620 gets returned.

I am sure I will know at the end of the weekend. Thank you very much for sharing your insights. You are so correct. Photography should be fun and not a nit picking thing that you sometimes see in forums.

I've left more forums than Imelda Marcos has shoes for that very reason. First comes the pixel-peeping, then camera snobs, then the cliques form, and it's bye-bye fun.

Default Marigolds & some other stuff

All I did was crop these. The color & everything else is straight from the camera. Not as sharp as I'd like... there was a slight breeze.













What the heck is this stuff?!?!

Default Olympus SP-590 Photo Sample at ISO 800

Great photos, Gary-

Once again, I am impressed by the Olympus SP-590 camera. I did several shots this afternoon, increasing the ISO setting to ISO 800. As you can see from the photo sample attached, noise is indeed there, and rather evident. That is a bit distressing. Both my Sony H-50 and my Panasonic FZ-28 can shoot rather cleanly at ISO 800.

I never shoot that high, Sarah. I try not to go past ISO 400. 99% of my stuff is done with ambient/existing light. If it's not bright enough, I don't shoot. I know that's confining but, I'm not that handy with a flash and when I DO use one my stuff comes out flat. I'm going to experiment with off-camera flash during the winter slack period. I'm keeping the E-410 and that is hot shoe equipped. I have two slaves that work well with the SP590 and I've devised a way to show JUUUUUUST enough flash from the onboard flash to trigger the slave(s) but not affect the subject matter very much.

Default Olympus Sp-590 with a Slave Flash

Hi there, Gary-

Here I am again. For this shot I added the DigiSlave 3000 Flash Unit to the SP-590 camera, the slave was pointed up in a bounce position. It allowed me to use ISO 100. What do you think? Please notice that the noise is reduced substantially.
