I just got a new Olympus E-510 SLR and I LOVE IT!!!! :D :D :D :D I was looking at the Nikon D80 or Canon 40D but managers at three camera stores convinced me that the Olympus was virtually the same camera for a MUCH better price because they don't have the Canon or Nikon name.

I still love my Nikon point and shoot, except the delay and speed, so I will keep it because of the zoom lens. Unfortunately, point and shoot lenses can't be used on SLRs. :( Don't know how I will ever afford the SLR lens I want for birding and wildlife . . . :shock:

Here are some photos, but keep in mind that I have never used a digital SLR and haven't done anything to adjust settings--this is how the settings came out of the box. Can't wait till I actually learn how to use it!!! :lol:

It was another warm day so I let Dakota romp in the pool!




Dakota would much rather be jumping in the pool than sitting for a portrait. Does it show??? :lol:


He loves the "dry off" game as much as loves swimming--we go in the front yard and play catch or frisbee!

Sheesh, Denver!! :roll: I gotta say this kinda quiet . . .
My Mom doesn't usually know how she does stuff. Things just kinda happen when she pokes at keys and sometimes she likes it cause she laughs or makes Dad come look. When she did the ball thing with your name, the top of the screen looked something like this--

What a great camera! Your pics are so crisp and clear!
I love it!
As always, Dakota is gorgeous!

I have just a very basic Kodak easy share, but I have no clue what I'm doing with a camera anyway, so need a very basic one. LOL Hubby knew what he was doing when he picked this one for me.

Had to come back for a 2nd look - is photography your profession or hobby - you are awesome
Awwww, Mary, how sweet of you! Nope!!!! Not a pro by a long stretch!! But it seems through my whole life I have had a love of and great respect for photography. My Dad, who died when I was five, was a heavy-duty hobby photographer with a darkroom. (I just dated myself big time!!! ) In my last job, I had the great privilege of working closely with the AF Combat Camera Command Photojournalists. These amazing, super-talented people permitted me to go on photo shoots with them, which was my major introduction to excellence and integrity in photography. That's when my love for photography really blossomed. I learned so much just by watching them work. My present job does require photography, but not at the professional level. The secret is the equipment; that's what really makes the difference! When I retire in four years, I plan to do serious-hobby animal, bird and wildlife photography. Four years!! Can't wait!!!
