I'm getting one of these....

The Shootsac

In my search for the 'perfect' camera bag, I think this looks the best. It's technically not a camera bag, but more a lens bag. But I think it suits its purpose and my style of shooting.

Shootsac combined with the Blackrapid R-strap - Perfecto !!

Olympus E-P1

Finally, from the developments of the first true digital SLR system of the Four Thirds come the micro Four Thirds. And the E-P1 is the first micro Four Thirds from Olympus. Cute little thing... I might get one for myself.. :)

More details here.

f/8 and be there

It's an old phrase by photojurnalists, it actually has two meanings. First it talks about your aperture being f/8 and the next about being there. Here's the keyword - 'be there'. It's not just saying that to set your aperture to f/8 and be there, but more the meaning of being there, being at the location, being at the place you want to take the photograph.

If you're not there, you can't have the shot, just simple as that.

I carry my camera wherever I go (not the E-3), so that I can grab a shot anytime I want to, and anywhere I go to.

Be there.

Taking birds in flight has never been what I'm good at nor is it one of the better capability of my Olympus gears. But it is always the person behind the camera that counts... so I tried, and I think I did well... :)
