Point is: What do YOU think? *I* think it looks much better, of course. Even the skin tone is much more natural. Of course, I'm a TERRIBLE people photographer. I get lucky on occasion. But, by and large, I stink at it. Of course, I haven't toyed with the "Beauty" setting or the "Smile catcher".

The more I do play with the SP590, the happier I become with my choice. BTW, I've decided to keep my E410. It does have it's purposes as does the SP590.

Default olympus E-410 Photo Sample

Hi there, Gary-

Yes, by adding the slave flash, things improved substantially, especially the skin tone. So I am a happier camper. And yes, I also own an Olympus E-410 as well. This photo with its unusual cropping just took a second place for me at our little county fair. notice the size of the two men in the foreground.

Nicely done and congratulations! Looks like you should be able to sell that to the cell phone folks that tout "more bars" (their name eludes me at the moment).

Hi Gary-
It has been a very busy Monday. I am glad that you liked my Olympus E-410 photo as well. It was a chance shot in Guatemala.

Default A mixed bag

The first two were from the SP590 and the last from the E410

Default Panorama mode in the SP590

It is incredible! Very similar to what the Sony HX1 is touting. This was handheld with stitching done in-camera. Because of size limitations here, I've included a link.

Default Hodge podge

I figured I best get out there and get 'em while they're still around! All handheld from the SP590.

More great photos, Gary-

You should be very proud. Both the Oly SP-590 and the Oly E-410 (as long as it is welded to the tripod) are producing marvelous photos.

Very pleased, indeed, Sarah. Thanks!

You are the rose flower king Gary : )
As you know I have had the 560 for a couple years and love it. I've spent a lot of time this year with the 510 70/300 combo and love that also. But on a recent trip to DC I learned a valuable lesson, take the 560 on trips. Carrying the 510 all day don't cut it.
Low light is the killer for the 560 and I can't get decent shots past ISO 200 in low light with it. But the 510s ability to shoot in 400 almost all the time and 800 when needed puts it on my list of needed as I shoot a lot of low light deer shots.
I try to ignore your 590 shots as I will be skinned alive if I even attempt to get another camera : ) It appears to be a 560 pumped up on steroids.
Nice shots guys.
Eric
