Olympus 3040 Z

My first digital camera was an Olympus 4030 Zoom. 3.3Mp, 7.1 - 21.3 f1.8 - 2.6 lens.

It uses SmartMedia cards for image storage.

I still have it and use it for Ebay photos, for which it is perfect. Set on P and point and shoot, the built in flash will fire if required.

I recently bought one of those light tents from Ebay, it cost around £12.00, basically four spring hoops with translucent nylon covering them to diffuse the light.

To try this out I popped a silver pocket watch in the tent and used the old Olympus as it was to hand.

Illumination was by a 60W lamp hanging about 40cm directly above the light tent.

The watch is a key wind/adjust Open face pocket watch by Thomas Russell & Son, Liverpool. Made 1893, Stirling Silver case hallmarked Birmingham.
Silver Fetter+one half Albert chain.
