    Picture I finally broke down and bought me a DSLR

    After countless visits to the airport for plane spotting with several film and digital cameras I finally broke down and got me a decent DSLR. I found a cool set: an Olympus E-510 with 14-42mm and 40-150mm lenses (that's 28-300 mm in 36mm size). I decided on the Olympus because the mechanical stabilizer is integrated in the camera. This will make plane spotting easier and it will also be a lot cheaper should I decide to buy an even larger tele-lense later on (as I can get one without stabilizer).

    Good job and nice choice. It looks like that you put a lot of though into the purchase of this camera.

    Happy shooting.

    I'm thinking of upgrading to a DSLR camera, and getting back into photography. And of course you'll need to post some pics now!

    Here you go. Here's the result of a quick try of the "night" programmes. Our town has just been decorated for X-mas We always get a star in front of our place (2nd pic) - I kinda like how it turned out in B&W

    Welcome to the DLSR club! I got myself a Canon D20 a few years ago. Mostly as a treat to myself to replace my 35mm SLR, and to save on money on prints. Japan may be the home of Fuji, but it's also probably one of the most expensive places in the world to buy your Fuji film and get prints.
