I recently sold my Olympus E-P1 in a local classified ad. I supported the ad with some images I'd taken with it. I forgot to take the ad down, and I recently got this amusing email:

"judee01@hotmail.com says: I have this camera and these are NOT photos taken by you. they come as defaults on the instal disc!!!!"

The images:

I guess maybe I could take it as a weird kind of compliment. Either that or I've got a nice lawsuit against Olympus and I can retire ;)

No, she didn't buy the camera from me. She just contacted me to inform me of my violation.

I just told her she was full of shit and that she should have noticed the obvious local landmarks in the images. Kind of a waste of typing keystrokes.

Why are there sample photos on an install disc? I don't recall any of my cameras coming with sample shots.

I believe you gave her solid adice!

I'm only interested in literate women, so it was a failure if so.
