    Looks like Olympus has another Champion in its corner ! More than a cursury view, Appreciated ! paul

  • As an observation, if I didn’t tell you this capture came from a compact 2/3rds sensor with a pro quality lens attached to it. Would you think this was shot with a DSLR?? This was my first time using the little Oly in a night environment. It’s output is superb for a Digi cam!!!!

    Actually I didn’t think that hard, it was the sensual impression, of the quality moment observed ! of a technical nature, once the basics are established , I’m moving to the proline, and get serious ! that’s still possible this century ! :-))

  • Right On!! thanks again Paul!!

    What a wonderful capture! I only saw the monument by day when it’s also a feast of photographic opportunities, but night time jusut adds a whole other dimension.

    I’m a big fan of night photography, so i can appreciate what you got here.

  • I didn’t know if the little Oly was going to give me the goods. I’ll never doubt this compact again. lol

    Wow – I didn’t even check the camera type – this was on a compact?!? Just goes to show what they are capable of and that you don’t need hugely expensive kit for fantastic results :)

  • Yes, I’ll never question my compact again. I did do alot of research on this Olympus C-8080WZ before purchase. I captured this image at ISO 50 with wide open aperture!!!
