    I am selling my month and a half old C-750 and everything
    that I bought for it within the last few weeks. It is an
    absolutely fantastic camera and takes fantastic pictures
    (See examples that I took below) but I am moving up to a
    D-SLR and I won't need to have 2 complete camera outfits.


    Longer zoom. More pixels. Excellent picture quality. The C-750 boasts an incredible 40x total zoom (10x optical) and 4-megapixel CCD, both firsts in the Olympus Ultra Zoom Series, making it easier than ever to bring great picture opportunities and impressive picture results right to you. Combine these with advanced Olympus® optics, a hot shoe for added versatility, and features like QuickTime® with sound and a number of automatic and manual controls for creative freedom, and you've got one of the most complete digital packages you'll ever find. All in a compact, stylish metal body.

    How about we set up an easy payment plan? One easy payment
    of $1000.00 [​IMG]

    I know what ya mean though! I am forking over $4K for a
    D-SLR in a couple weeks... At least if I sell the 750 I can
    use the money to buy another memory card and a case for the


    That's my friends WS-6 TransAm and yep it's yummi! He has
    lots and lots of modifications done to the car. When I shot
    that image he just got his new rims on, which are 17x9.5"
    and 17x11" (Rear) respectively! Big rims, HUGE tires!

    I love the WS-6, almost as much as the Firehawk. Funny thing about tires that wide - they're useful, especially if he's done any engine work. I used to have a stock '98 Camaro SS, and the Goodyear 275's would easily break out if I wasn't careful. These cars are nuts. It's really too bad GM killed them off. [​IMG]

    Hope you sell the camera soon. Looks like a hell of a deal!

    Yep the LS1's fly.. I know I have one (2000 Corvette 6spd
    Z51 Coupe) [​IMG]

    His 00 WS-6 just dynod a few weeks ago 409H.P @ Rear Wheels
    so yep he needs them! It can turn those over fairly easy too.

    It's a mean car and I love it.. All of my friends either
    have Vette's Camaro's or TransAm/Firebirds [​IMG]

    Thanks I hope I sell it too.. I don't have to sell it but
    I figured maybe someone else could enjoy it as much as I
    have plus it will save them a lot of money.. Better than
    walking in Best Buy and paying $600.00 for just the camera
    and then having to shell out another $600.00 or more in
    accessories! (Memory cards in particular, ain't cheap!)

    I just wanted to update this thread..

    I know that $1000.00 is a lot of money to come up with at
    one time. I decided I will break up the package.

    I will take $450.00 for the camera. You get the camera
    plus the 16MB XD Card plus an Olympus Charger and 4 Camedia
    1700mAh batteries. Remember this is less than a month old
    and you will get receipts and all packaging materials just
    like it was never opened.

    I will take $100.00 for the pair of 128 Meg XD Cards (128Mb
    each 256 Megs total)

    I will take $200.00 for both add on Lenses and the black
    adaptor tube and I will take $30.00 for the Kenko silver
    tube and the 3 Crystal Optics filters.

    The Case and the Tripod make me an offer on..

    Just a little bump for you.

    Which D-SLR camera are you looking at? At a price considerably more than your great deal here, the Canon Rebel looks like a pretty good "Honda Civic" of D-SLR cameras.

    Thanks.. I currently have the camera on eBay (I am not
    posting a link to it since that is not allowed)it probably
    won't sell anyway.. Seems like no one can put thier hands
    on the money.


    I really wanted an Olympus E-1 but the price was too high
    for all of the accessories I need and/or want so I passed
    on that camera. Then I came across the Sigma SD-9 which
    uses the Foveon 3 layer CMOS Sensor (each layer is a
    seperate color channel R/G/B which is completely different
    than the typical Bayer Sensor like in my 750 or any other
    digital camera).

    To put it mildly I am blown away.. The SD-9 has some issues
    like every other digital camera there is no perfect camera.
    But the output of the Foveon Sensor IMHO is far beyond what
    any of the Bayer Sensors can do.. The "Mega Pixel" of the
    camera is listed as 3.54 but resolution wise it's more on
    par with a 6.5 or 7 Megapixel Sensor and that's due to the
    fact that it actually have more than 10 million photosites
    (3.54 x 3 layers) and it doesn't have an Anti Alias Filter
    so you get no Moire effects either. The images just look
    absolutely fluid on ISO100.. It gets a little noisy at ISO
    400 and that's as high as the ISO goes.. But it's not like
    I am shooting weddings or a bunch of low light scenes so I
    honestly don't need ISO1600 or ISO Boost3200 like the Canon's

    It's going to cost me $4000.00 or maybe a little over 4 to
    get everything I need. This is what I have decided on so far.

    Sigma SD-9 D-SLR Body

    Sigma EX 20mm-70mm DG/DF Lens

    Sigma EX 70mm-200mm APO HSM Lens

    Sigma EX 50mm Macro Lens

    Sigma EX APO 1.4x Teleconverter Lens

    Sigma DG Super500 Flash

    Sigma BatteryPack/Grip

    Sigma Shutter Remote Control

    Lexar 40X 512MB Compact Flash Card

    Nixvue Vista 10GB Portable Hard Drive

    Bogen/Manfrotto Green Tracked GN3 Tripod with Green 3030 Pan Head

    Hoya MMC UltraViolet (UV0) Filters (55mm,77mm,82mm)

    StormCase IM2400 Yellow Foam Lined Water Proof Case

    Tarmac Neoprene Quick Release Neck Strap (Red)

    DLC Lens Pen

    DLC Microfiber Lens Cloth

    16 2100 mAh NiMh Powerex Batteries and Charger (For the Digital Side of the Camera

    20 Cr123a Toshiba Batteries (For the Shutter and AutoFocus)

    I think that's everything.. I will need to get a Grey Card
    for manually setting the White Balance out in the field but
    I have to get that at a local Camera Shop and while I am
    there I might pick up a Nyquist Resolution Chart to test all
    of the Lenses and make sure they are not Back or Front Focusing.
