If anybody's interested in going down the Olympus route..( great cameras BTW ).....I'm sure our erstwhile TD Narikaa (Reg) is currently looking at selling one his Olympus DSLR's and lens / with accessories....I thik there's a good deal to be had by someone...drop him a PM......just a heads-up...rather than buying from an unknown source on t'Bay :D

Thanks Del - really helpful and especially as I have the same camera and although 'entry level' love it with the 2 standard lenses. Have to say I didn't realise it could perform this well! BTW if you've got it is the pancake lens worth getting....?

Del, do you have any hints on how to take a decent lume shot with the Olympus?? Although I hold it steady, the shots always come out motion blurred?? - I just wondered if there was a good setting from it.

I have to say this camera is pretty damn good, a bit old now but I bough the macro lens for taking close ups of watch movements and it's excellent!!

The downside to that setup is that you get unnecesarily long exposures (they do look great tho), the trick really is to use a tripod, or at least not to have the camera in the hands.

Shutter priority will give you good results too set to 1-2 seconds, no need to have the room so dark either.

 

Example shot @ 2 sec exposure, always with tripod (you do get a different depht of field tho):

Nice tut del! I have an Olympus E-510 (similar to Dels camera) complete with a bag and two or three lenses for sale right now if anyone is interested. Going to but it on ebay this weekend otherwise.

This is the same guide posted in RWG:-

It's still a good system but of course there is more than one way to skin a cat, as mostling pointed out above. It's all about experimenting and having fun! ;)

Exactly, the main thing imo is to use a tripod for best results.

I probably should make more of an effort, as I have the same camera, a decent tripod, two different size light tent and three powerfull natural light LED lamps!

Great tips Del!

 

Just to show others you can achieve some pretty good shots in the right natural light. Here's a few a took a while back (no light tent):
