View Full Version : Greetings from the Surface of the Sun...

...actually, they refer to Phoenix as "The Valley of the Sun." I will spare you the jokes about "it" being a dry heat. Suffice it to say that my E-1s have held up (and worked, albeit a bit "noisily" in 114 degree heat) for eight hours. And yes, they are water-resistant as well, having sweat all over them on occasion.

I shoot with them professionally, ranging from editorial to commercial stuff. No weddings, though... Just never had the desire.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

Welcome Alan, I had a look at the scenics section of your website and I like your photo's of the Grand Canyon and of the clouds very much.
Wish you have a nice time here.

Welcome, Al.

You have some cool shots. I think one is pretty neat of the window with light streaming in. I also have a lot of clouds shots.:)

What is even more interesting is that most folks talk about the camera being water proof, but oftentimes we do not take into consideration what the effects of high heat can have on the internals of the camera. With the heat you have there, I am amazed that the camera can hold up the way it has. With the CCD heating up, I would imagine you experience increased noise levels - but still, the E-1 seems to perform, perform, and perform. I am certainly looking forward to seeing some of your experiences (and images) being posted here for all to see.
