    Default NoVA 4/3 Crew....

    So here's where you've all been hiding. :-)

    Not quite a NoVa newb.... got my first Oly digital (a D400z) back in July of '99. Picked up an Uzi (the "fabled" C-2100UZ) at the fire sale price of $399 in October of '01, and the equally unique E-100RS at the same price when unloaded by Fry's in Feb of '02. Picked up an E-10 on closeout (see a pattern here?) in April of '03, and have since tried to limit myself to one body per 2 years. That let me pick up my E-300 -- not on fire sale :-( -- last spring. I passed on the two lens kit (not sure how well they were even out yet) to start right off with the 14-54. My budget blown, I picked up a Sigma 55-200 to cover the long end, and I'm still saving for the 50-200 or something similar. (Bigma? maybe, would have preferred the 80-400 OS).

    Another site for D.C. locals to be aware of --- the DC Photogs Yahoo group:

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dcphotogs/

    Mostly Canonites there with big bodies and big white lenses, and a few with Nikons but they're a friendly crew and generally unbiased (the founder started out with an Uzi at one point).

    Not much discussion, but every couple months or so we try to have a group shoot somewhere around town, and sometimes not so around town.

    at least check this place out. Lots of us here, that's for sure. Once you're used to this site, it is definitely superior to dpreview. Anyway, hope to see you post here more often.
    Have a wonderful day!

    Inigo--

    Hey there...didn't realize you were a local as well, though I reside on the Maryland side of things (but work in DC). You were kind enough awhile back to comment on some of my original images posted on dpreview late last fall. I'm hoping that my limited photography skills have improved since then; I can say that I'm a bit more knowledgeable now in learning how to approach different shooting situations (not always with success, mind you) and getting better photos as a result. Didn't know about the DC photogs site, so thanks for that.

    --Bob

    Try going into your User CP and adjusting the thread view to hybrid. I like this new mode better than the DPR version. Plus, you can turn on advanced editing & really have fun.

    I've got the "unique" E-100rs still! I think of it as the E330's grandpappy.
    To find the answers - question them!

    Definitely unique. Not many (any?) cameras even today that could have done this "shot" -- 7.5FPS, 2 frames of pre-capture. "Foot on the ball" is the 2nd pre-captured frame.

    Inigo -

    Welcome, albeit somewhat belated. Yes, there's a small group of us northern Virginians poking around here. And it's a nice group of folks here in the FourThirdsPhoto forum, too.

    I do get the the DCPhotogs e-mails but have not seen any mention of a spring photo shoot. Do you know of any preliminary plans for one?

    No --- haven't seen or heard anything. I guess it's time to ask. :-)

    Some of us still have one foot in each door. Keeps things from being dull - welcome, Inigo!
