  • 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 ...
  • Yes, the G6 has some nice features, a major bonus being the larger grip, but I doubt you will see any image improvement over the G3, certainly not in normal conditions. Having just bought a G6 and ...
  • Luton Cameras are a very good supplier in the UK. Looking at their website they appear to order the LH-70 hood on request rather than keeping it in stock. If you can this listed on Amazon UK then I ...
  • If you go to: http://www.olympus.co.uk/site/en/c/cameras/digital_cameras/creator/xz_2/xz_2_features_l.html and scroll down to 'Other features' you will see 'High Speed Movie' which would make you ...
  • The Olympus UK website does list High Speed Movie as a feature: High-speed shooting capabilities enable you to capture even the fastest moving objects in super slo-mo clarity with 120fpsor even ...
  • The E-1 at Harrisons looks good value - it did amuse me that they have classified it as a 'Compact System Camera' rather than a DSLR ! Nothing wrong with that, have seen much much worse ... Peter
  • Strange - you have posted a link to Ebay in Holland rather than the UK and it now appears (although my Dutch isn't great) that the auction is closed. I don't understand ..... Peter
  • Replied in Olympus E-1
    Sounds like you might have set bracketing on - can you see BKT in the display on top or in the viewfinder ?. The BKT button is on the top left near the strap lug. Peter
  • There is no doubt that the 50-200 is a very good lens. I seem to have managed some better pictures since using the 50-200 with an E3 instead of a 70-300 on an E510 or is it just my imagination ? Th ...
