This is nice to hear, so do we!

I think Lynn (Pugrpooh) did an Alaska trip with her Oly, didn't she?

I'd think you'd want to invest in some polarizing filters if you don't have any (glare). I'd also make sure you're adept in using the different settings so that you can get what you need on the fly. You've read Understanding Exposure? Read it again if you have! (I'm rereading it myself!) I'd probably make a decision of whether you're going to use RAW or JPEG (see post above). And then Practice, Practice, Practice.

Oh yeah, and a couple of things I'd be sure to know before I went also - how to pull up the histogram, how to get your horizons level , how to get the mirror up, how to set the second timer (for times you don't have a tripod), basic familiarization as best you can with your functions. That sounds like fun! (Can I come? )

Hi!

You can come if you don'tmind travelling Disney Steerage with the DH and me and if there is room in the suitcase to stow you :-)

I have all of Bryan Peterson's books and was just thinking last night that it was time to pull them all out for a refresher read. I realized that between my gear and my DH's we are going tobe hard pressed to find any space in our carryon luggage for his wine for the cruise. It is a good thing we are driving to Vancouver or I think the airfare with the extrs bag charges would cost us more than the cruise lol.

Good idea on the mirror lock and the two second delay, I have a corded and a wireless remote (see I told you I am good at getting the gadgets :-) but it will be nice to not always have to haul out the tripod. Btw should I bring the monopod too? I have a couple but they don't get alot of use generally. Fortunately I started out (after reading the first B.O. Book) shooting in raw+jpg.

I am starting to get brave enough to switch over to raw only.

Oops, time to go see the tax guy... More later,

Tisza

I was thinking now that all the other brands have their own "Photo Sharing" threads, that we should modernize a bit and have one too. Thoughts?

Hi!! I am new to the Photo Board and searched for Olympus and found this thread! Is this thread still open or did it move to the Photo Sharing board?
Thanks!
