    I see so many photos of great looking gear on AK that suck due to the use of flash. Let's see your best efforts using only available lighting. I'll start. I'm pretty sure many of you can do much better than this:

    These aren't natural lighting (or even good shots) but they're all that I have at the moment.

    That's a stock OM5e. I haven't upgraded anything on it yet.

    Thanks Chicks. I prefer the bulb-lit version, the added warmth seems to make the wood pop more.

    But for silver face gear I almost always prefer natural lighting...

    Love the Yammie shot! Need to find a reflective surface around here. :scratch2: Natural lighting, and shooting at an angle seem to work pretty well with silver. Straight on with direct flash? :no:

    It is pretty amazing what happens by slipping on a OM10 will do. I used the stock 5 for my older thrift store albums and would change to the 10 for my better stuff. The 40 is supposed to sound outstanding!

    I love the convenience of that cartridge.

    Most of mine were taken with a 5mp Kodak P&S camera. Wish I could do them over with my current setup, but the Schneider lens on the Kodak was OK.
