  • Should be easy to set this as required in the camera 1 menu. Works easily on an E510 but I don't have an E520. On the E510 you don't set the size for 'Super Fine' or SHQ, just the compression and ...
  • Sometimes different packages are supplied to different retailers which makes it awkward. Last year I thought the Nikon my daughter wanted for Christmas was cheaper at Argos but then found out that ...
  • Maybe Amazon are not the best people to deal with as you can't ring and ask. Two companies highly recommended in the UK are Mathers of Bolton and Wilkinson Cameras. Wilkinson are undercutting ...
  • Just wondered - is it worth going into London Camera Exchange in Norwich ?. I would expect someone there to be familiar with Olympus gear as they turn over a fair amount second-hand. Best of luck ...
  • Can you not reset the numbering ? I suspect that some of the number is taken from what has been done already on the card - I know that my new GM1 hasn't taken as many as the picture number is ...
  • Replied in Self Timer
    But then using manual focus should be OK. Sorry but I think people are expecting far too much these days compared to how people took photographs not so many years ago. I wonder how long before ...
  • Replied in Self Timer
    That is the way I would expect it to work, the self timer only operates the shutter mechanism, not the focus mechanism. I think you may be expecting too much.
  • Glad I have never been tempted to get one of these. Suspected I wouldn't be happy so stuck with the GF2 and 14 2.5 as my pocketable solution. Thanks for the update Peter
  • Yep, the camera bag I had been using for a good while with the E510 and 70-300 combo had sudden strap failure while carrying the E3 and 50-200 combo ! At least the bag was under lifetime warranty ...
  • Not sure he is still waiting as the original post was seven years ago !
  • Doubt you will find a manual, especially as it is free sofware. Best course of action is to use the 'help' and if still struggling ask on here but detail what you are trying to do.
  • After getting my E-1 I saw a good piece of advice - reset to factory defaults and start from there. Enjoy - my favourite to handle although I have to liking the second hand E-3 I acquired. Wives ...
  • Have you had a look at the second hand flashes on the London Camera Exchange website ?. They have an Olympus FL36 for £79 and a FL50 for £160. These might be top end of your budget but will be ...
  • My preferred pocketable solution for travelling light or on a night out is a GF2 with 14mm lens. That is my lightest setup and goes in a jacket OK If going out with a bigger pocket but not a jacket ...
  • Yes, was quite fast so no issues and unlike an Olympus deal a few years ago was for the full amount. Bought camera and submitted claim on the 10th January, cheque arrived on 4th February.
  • Hmm, please don't shoot the messenger !. When I saw this update I didn't think I would bother as the two things it is meant to fix don't affect me but thought others might find it useful. Now I ...
  • Haven't seen anyone else post this .... Panasonic have made v1.2 available for G6 and GF6 (1) Improved compatibility of MF operation with H-FS12032 lens.
  • I think the choice of lens very much depends on personal choice and the shooting you do - there is no perfect solution. I decided to go for the 14-140 as I go to a number of events where the spread ...
  • Hmm, can't answer all your questions but hopefully can help in a little way as I have just bought a G6 with the 14-140: When you say smart zoom or teleconverter, there is the ever present digital ...
  • Can't help with a solution but I was glad to read your post as I thought it was me that was clumsy. Had the G6 for 10 days now and manage to press all sorts of things at random, today it was the ...
