Tomoko,

I like the idea.  It is certainly worth a valiant effort.

As I have been reading this thread on the Oly Calendar idea, I sense that
most people have not had any experience in having had conventional color
printing done nor have tried one on one's own.

Having priced the printing of an exhibit notice several years back, I knew
four-color separation is costly. (I had my exhibit notice printed in one
color.)  I print my photographs at a notecard size on an Epson Stylus Pro
printer.  For an image of 3 and a half inches by five inches (9cm x
12.7cm), I use a file size of about 4 Mb.  For an 8x10 image, this would
translate to about 18 Mb.

In any case, this is a huge file for electronic delivery.  Instead of
producing an Oly calendar by the list volunteers, I suggest the following:

1. I could propose to Olympus Japan as part of my camera proposal that they
make an Olympus calendar using images from OM users all over the world.
They could set up a sort of competition among the OM users for 12 calendar
images.  The winners would get complimentary calendars plus whatever
Olympus is willing to give (a new OM-5?).  I should mention here that
Olympus Japan is definitely proud of their OM-4Ti.  They offered an
OM-4TiBlack + 90mmF2 macro for winners of  the 97 Asahi Camera Competition
("Asahi Camera" is the name of a Japanese photo magazine).  Of course,
Nikon offered an F5 + AiAF Nikkor 50mmF1.4D.  

2. Instead of the Olympus Mailing List Calendar, the list would set up a
Web gallery of periodic shows of member's photographs, similar to the one
available now at the PhotoForum.  The main thing for a volunteer is to make
a selection among those submitted images.  Another person can volunteer for
a space.  It would be interesting and stimulating for those who do not have
a Web site yet to be able to have one's images displayed all over the
world.  Also for us who would have a look at them, too.

How do you like my ideas?
