Then and Now

A Brownie folding camera and an Olympus E-3, the latest in technology a hundred years apart.

I like the clever camera switcheroo that gave you a similar LCD screen. How much trouble would it have been to take the battery grip off the E1?

Taking the grip off of the E-1 is easy -- it's the thinking of it that's hard.

This was only a "gee whiz" attempt that I didn't expect to use. The photo I wanted was the one on the screen of the E-3, since it would show two cameras with Kodak sensors. It's still not as good a photo as I'd like -- I should have done a double exposure using a tripod to capture a better image on the LCD -- but I'm going to wait for a photo of the E-1, the first 4/3 camera, with the Brownie Box camera that was also in the collection.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
