I had intended to buy a Canon 400D but the funds ran better to the Olympus which I hadn't even known existed until my son told me he was going to get one. Looks like the E500 is a good quality camera and I don't have to follow the herd to by the Canon or Nikon.
At the moment I am using a point and shoot Sony to take my pictures both for personal use and also to upload to Fotolia
I see that it is possible to get a remote controller for the Olympus either cable or Wireless. I will get one or the other. I saw that the Canon is able to use an old mic/speaker from a mobile phone to use as a remote, I wonder if it will work with the E500 also.
Another thing I am interested in is the lighting set up. I am in the process of makong a light tent so thatI can do the product and small object photography and I have been looking at the Strobist site to find out more about flash photography.
Can I connect up the camera to my Mac and see what is there ready to photograph and use that to take the picture? That facility would be great for some fine control and the use of the computer screen as a large LCD panel for the camera.
Looking forward to seeing some responses in this under used looking part of this forum site. Are there any more users of E500's out there?
