I am suprised how much 35mm film and digital are alike. Since I had been using a Point and shoot you don't worry about F stop, ISO, or shutter speed. I had forgotten about that stuff and in my first DSLR pictures I had such a narrow depth of field some of the objects were out of focus except in one place. All of the choices confuse me but of course you can set it to full automatic. It is also the first Auto focus SLR for me. With film I took very few pictures and I didn't pull the trigger until I was sure of what I was photographing. With digital I can fire off 150 pictures in a few minutes and view them just a few minutes later. Many of that 150 will not be what I wanted but it is because I only took 150 instead of 24 like I did with film. Does anyone know if the E-510 is capable of using the remote flash (strobes) that use a radio signal?

Wow sorry I don't know the answer to that question but iam glad I have some one to chat with about the 510 and learn and teach some photo taking tips about this camera.I love this DSLR I plan on going out to take some nature shots soon I use Raw when I shoot nature shots. I use Photoshop Elements 6. I plan on getting Lightroom to do them right but for now I use PSE6. I also use JPEG as well so it depends. I like to try Raw so I can play around with the pictures. I am still learning as well but would love to chat about this camera ....cause my wife looks at me like iam stupid when I talk to her about it....lol

Awesome castle picture, Quicklabs. (I've always enjoyed your dog pictures, too.) Would love to see more!

I was wondering if you could all share how you work with the 4:3 system - do you leave extra space to allow for cropping? What about printing?

Another question, where did you all buy your cameras and would you buy there again?

Who else is using the Evolt series?

I got my 510 from Dell. It was on sale and as cheap as I could find it anywhere else. I will post some photos when I am allowed.

No problem with Dell but DHL the delivery company it was another story. It took the local courier 3 days to find my house. For 3 mornings the online tracking said "out for delivery with courier" but then for 2 nights it would say returned for more information. I called and talked to a rep and he said I could pick it up but then he couldn't even determine where it was at. I finally got it about 5pm the third day.

I bought the Evolt 410 with the 2 lens kit on Black Friday at Sam's. I used it for the first time at WDW Dec. 12-16. Hoping to learn more about how to use the camera and see some other photos. I have been lurking here and occasionally posting with DW's screen name (jackskellingtonsgirl). Hopefully there will be more posts here from Olympus users.

I was somewhat disappointed in the quality of the shots I took. Not having a tripod was a large part of the problem, as well as choosing poor viewing spots for fireworks. I would like to get some tips to make sure my pictures next August are better!

Welcome, oogieboogieman. Congratulations on your purchase! Can you be more specific about what the issues were and show us some of your shots? I think you'll get more feedback that way. I have the feeling a lot of it is practice and just getting used to the camera, ie the learning curve. No doubt your shots next trip will be much improved. Just hanging out on this board you'll learn a lot. Hopefully on this thread we can share ideas specific to the cameras.

How has everyone else been doing with their Evolts? Any pictures from the holidays?

I realize night shots are very difficult. I am still working on getting the minimum number of posts so I can post photos on the DIS.

Does anyone know offhand how many post I need?

I think you need 10 posts to post pics. I could be wrong though.

I am shooting with and E330. I hope to upgrade to the 510 soon. I love Oly cameras. Lots of photos on my website, with about 1000 WDW pictures I took last month coming soon.
