    I purchased an Olympus C-4000z a few weeks back and have been experimenting with it ever since. It's really a fine camera, and based on the amount of Olympus owners on the board, it appears I made a great choice. I really like it and it has every feature/capability "I" would ever need out of a digital.

    Wow. What a differance a camera can make! That shot of the bridge is similar to others you've posted but now looks awesome. It really helps to appreciate what a fine job of modeling you've done. Nice work.

    Hi Uteram
    Excellent photo's from what appears to be an excellent camera. D.O.F. is also quite good since you shot the photo at close quarters. Now you can play around with the settings. hehe.

    Matthyro Will always be re-membered

    Great depth of field in the first photo. Does your camera have manual settings or was this automatic?
    As others have already said. great modeling and superb photography

    Thanks all.

    Matthyro, the camera has both full manual and auto capabilties. For this picture, I used manual settings.

    Shamus, that is one thing I've also liked about this camera is the depth of field. The macros on this camera are incredible as well. If I needed to, I could focus in on a figure only a centimeter away. I'll post a sample....

    Here you go....The camera is positioned about 3/4 of an inch away.

    if any of you are college basketball fans, this fisherman I have dubbed "Rick" as an homage to Rick Majerus, basketball coach at my beloved alma mater, the Univ. of Utah. The fisherman has a striking resemblance

    For what it's worth, the derivitave of my moniker Uteram is from "Ute", the nickname of my university and, "Ram", the name of my favorite NFL team.:D :D :D :D

    Those are reallly great pictures. I and I'm sure others would really like to know just what manual settings you used to get that great depth of field. Also, was this last macro shot done in manual also? Keep up the good work.

    Lighting is my next step for improvements.

    What you, or others, suggest as a good beginning lighting "package" to get good spot lighting as well as fill lighting.

    Beautiful pics Ute...can you manually control the apeture and speed at the same time or just one or the other? It still autofocuses on manual setting, correct?

    aartwmich, once I have I have the settings how I want them, the camera autofocuses on the subject. It's quite easy. I was intimidated at first, but haven't had a "bad" shot yet, when doing it manually.

    Jim T, If I remember correctly, this particular shot was done with the aperature set at f8, but I don't remember the speed or exposure setting. One thing that's nice about the camera, if it senses the lighting isn't quite right, it will compensate for you.
