    Like I said, that camera cannot take pics like that.
    He should have written, "Here's a stitched photo I made from my old
    Olympus a few years ago." That would have been honest.
    Instead, he implies that the photo in questuion was taken with a 4-
    year old camera.

    My point of this nitpicking is simply to reiterate that the truth
    ain't in him.

    With all due respect, it's just meaningless hairsplitting that proves
    nothing.

    Now, now Bret. Just because you can't take pictures like that with your
    toy is no reason to go getting yourself all flustered. It;s the end
    result people see, not the work in progress. Like you never steal my
    photos and paste porn images into them, do you?

    Just because I post a picture you can't take, is no reason to get huffy
    when I didn't ask your permission to join frame P1010023 and P1010024
    together.

    Take a quick gander at your efforts from last year and earlier this year.
    http://www.annika1980.com You really are jealously facinated with me,
    aren't you? Maybe when you get around to figuring out what makes a photo
    into wall art, you'll recognize that I create art from my photos and do
    it for a living. You never did grasp that part of it, did you? Art I mean.

    It's a funny thing Bret. When you paste stuff from one of your pathetic
    shots into your "Pbase version", it means zilch to you but when I paste
    1/3rd of a frame into the following frame to complete the shot, it's
    cheating? Go cry to your mommy child. This is the real world here.

    It sort of reminds me of when you got your nackers in a twist over this
    picture: http://www.weddingsnportraits.com.au/ebay/ebay-print1.htm
    because I'd folded 15% of the left side out to make it more interesting.

    What amused me was you completely missed the opportunity to get in a few
    digs on the real work of art... The one I made from *SIX* seperate images.
    http://www.weddingsnportraits.com.au/ebay/ebay-print3.htm

    Not only have these two "photoshoped images" sold out from the first
    edition but the gorge is currently being printed as I write ...on
    wallpaper! It will cover a 15 feet wide by 8 feet high wall and... have
    all the resolution you'd expect from half a dozen 5D images stitched
    together! Even your dodo mate Mark couldn't resist commenting it was a
    "halfway decent seascape". ROTFL.

    You really do look smart in the court jester outfit Bret! LOL

    Keep it up mate, I'll lift the beat next time so you won't have to diet
    off all those donuts and double choc malts... That'll be fun, eh?

  8. Oh Fuckwit, In your absence I was making a list of the names you use. Up
    to 1756 now.

    Just collecting evidence monk.


    Oh no I am so scared, I spoke to my mate at the courthouse today and you
    addressing me as Monkey gives me right to call you a fuckwit, well she
    used a word starting with C but after some laughter we settled with fuckwit

  9. And how *exactly* does that prove they were working when I checked?
    And how *exactly* does that prove they were working when Pete D had
    the same problem:
    Oh look, "evidence". Can you see that it wasn't just me?
    Oh, really? So I guess that thing above was just my imagination.
    Shall I post the exact link? Do you want another?

    Apology forthcoming?
    My 'insult' was "Sheesh." Your reply was "Insults are childish and
    inappropriate at best, and just make you look
    foolish when you're so far off the mark". Go ask an *unbiased
    observer* which one is the most insulting... Hint - would you be
    insulted if I called you a childish fool..?
    The use of "done some checking" is rather funny, given that *you*
    didn't. Then you post a quote that shows absolutely ****-all about
    what was happening when Pete and I had a problem, along with some
    domain provider advertising spiel that has sweet FA to do with it.

    Actually, that line:
    ...makes you sound so much like Doug, you could be a pigeon pair.
    "Sheesh" upsets you so? A little fragile, by chance? (O: And just
    who was off the mark again?

    But, anyway, if it floats your boat to decide there wasn't a problem
    because:
    - *you* didn't see it
    - you worship Doug
    - you worship Internap and Dotster
    - you doubt the word of at least 2 others
    ... then your position and approach to life is quite clear. Do carry
    on!

    Ha, ha ha. ROTFL.
    The DNS you are hooked into and Pete's ISP leaches off is notourious for
    taking anything up to 2 weeks to refresh itself. Saves Singapore head
    office money. Not unlike AOL and their "keep it within" attitude.

    Appology? LOL. what about *MY* appology for the lies and defamation you
    spread about me? You don't seem to like it when someone else points out
    your childish and pedantic rantings are just that.

  11. Off topic crap.

    Do you mean "incandescent", oh illiterate one?

    Once again, Mr talentless, it's the area *around* the lamp that is
    blown to hell, and a *simple* HDR technique would have tidied that
    area up - if you did stitching, why on earth didn't you take different
    exposures for the *real* problem?
    Do you *really* need an example??? If anyone else needs one, say so,
    and I'll do it. I might even see if I can do the same shot, if that
    room is still available for viewing on the Diamantina..
    Check that one with your legal team for defamation, did you Doug? As
    an expert on bullying, what would *you* call a comment like that? I'd
    call it .. pretty foolish.
    Well, now, assuming Optus was my ISP, you would have to have a court
    order to get that info from them. If that was the case, how could the
    address possibly be wrong - do you understand how broadband
    connections work, Douglas? In other words, you just proved you are a
    liar. Again. Your fantasy world is just plain sad and ridiculous,
    Doug.
    You already have a valid address for me, Doug. Why have you *never*
    sent anything to it?
    I know I'm on the right track then.

    You see, Doug, the difference between you and me, and the reason no-
    one else joins in with your tirades (still haven't noticed that?), is
    that I don't flog my site here, nor do I post stupid claims and even
    stupider examples, nor do I pontificate about how I know everything.
    Hey, I even enjoy being proved wrong! - it means I learn stuff.

    See if *you* can do that one day, Doug. (As in, try to prove me
    wrong, and also you could try to actually learn something.)
    When someone *I respect* says the same thing.. I will listen.
    When you say it, I know I'm going great!

    You only have to look around to see the 'respect' *you* now have.
    Enjoy!

  12. Agreed. But I think they may have faltered after the C5050 and C8080,
    which remains one of my favorite cameras ever. The new 550 (?) has
    fallen into the same trap that every manufacturer seems to have - they
    just want to add pixels and let the noise increase... And they pushed
    the lens a little too far.

    There's something wonderful about a good Olympus lens, and they have
    made quite a few that fall into that category.

    But the truth is this thread - and others like it - are typically started by
    P&S users, actually one particular P&S user who seems obsessed with
    criticizing DSLR users and baiting them into a pointless debate.

  14. Is that meant to be "notorious", Mr Illiterate? Nice grammar, too.

    Anyway, then there was SMS:
    But as usual, you are right, Doug (and John N). Everyone else is just
    imagining it.

    Some folks like to keep their head in their sand. They just don't
    want to get it.

    Carry on ignoring reality, Doug.

    In the current range, all the FE and mju series are made by
    Sanyo, not Olympus. Not 100% sure on the SP550/560, but have
    my suspicions on them as well. Funny how the Olympus,
    Pentax, Nikon and Kodak cameras share the same battery, have
    many other similarities (such as button position), and all
    release cameras with basically the same specifications at
    the same time.

  16. You've noticed? (O;

    Yes, point taken about the FE's and mju's.

    I was referring to their top-of-range P&S cameras. I owned (two!)
    C8080's, and they *definitely* were Olympus products (albeit with Sony
    sensor).. The lens on the 8080 (28-140 equiv) was superb.

    Yeah, that's a great shot. Look at it again and see for yourself.
    Did they bring a high bid from your London auction at Suckaby's?

    How much did this beauty go for?

    It's only _one_ person that believes it (and even he doesn't really
    believe it). By responding, instead of kill-filing, people are
    encouraging him to keep trolling.

    My own take is that the majority of the bashing and bragging is by DSLR
    advocates, not so much entire threads as incessant response putdowns of
    non-DSLRs. You're not seeing that? ;)
