Elderly's recent activity

  • It appeared that I could only assign 'MySets' to three choices on the mode dial as there were only three options showing in a rather large 'window' but I kept scrolling and all options appeared, ...
  • I've *never* lost anything from any camera in over 50 years, until that is I switched to Olympus. I lost the eye cup and hot shoe cover from my EM-5 and my lens hood for my 12-40. I bought a new ...
  • Thanks for the re-direction from the Fuji forum. £25 for a Shadow ..... Hmmmmm ......your neighbour was either offered a real bargain or his memory is playing false. I bought my Rapide in 1967 for ...
  • Why did I feel compelled to click on this thread? I sold my Series C Rapide for £105 :-(. Nice set but IMO only, the 4th image doesn't belong :-P ;-)
  • I too have been carrying cameras for over fifty years including a period of almost twenty-five years professionally and can't remember ever damaging or losing anything (unless you count brassing ...
  • Replied in And...
    I assume it was made this  way (one button to release) so that people would lose their hoods and have to buy really expensive replacements! ;-)
  • Created questions Oly 12-40 Lens Hood Capture
    After losing my first lens hood I bit the bullet and bought an outrageously expensive OEM hood (no generic hoods were available in, or to be sent to the UK). Although it has two buttons on it to ...
  • When it comes to button assignment with the EM-1, I'm like a cat amongst the pigeons, I'm SO spoiled for choice that I can not make up my mind about a definitive set-up. But it does seem intuitive ...
  • I can't give you any advice, but I don't like shots of airborne piston engined planes whose propellers appear to be static because of shooting with a too high shutter speed. I've no idea what ...
  • Once again they won't ship to the UK.
  • Unfortunately they won't ship to the UK.
  • Thanks David, do you have a link to the £22 OEM hood please?
  • I've lost the LH-66 hood supplied with my Olympus 12-40mm lens. I'm loathed to pay £40 plus for an original but I can't see any generic replacements. Does anybody know of one please?
  • Replied in yes
    Thanks all.
  • Replied in yes
    It's months since I set up my EM-1 but I've set it to the 81 small boxes size. I can't remember (and I'm not going to re-visit as I'll probably muck something up!) but I'm assuming that the ...
  • Created questions EM-10 Focus box size?
    I had an early EM-5 with the then uselessly large focus box size. I now have the EM-1 with a satisfactory smaller focus box size. I'm contemplating an EM-10 as a back-up body to my EM-1 but only if ...
  • Replied in My theory
    I've just had my first lock-up. 12-40mm lens. Single shot. The viewfinder was black except for the information on it (I thought that I had left my lens cap on!) and strangely the info said MF even ...
  • Replied in Optech
    I ordered and have just received the Optech. It's small, simple and light *but* compared to the 'Matin' neoprene quick release strap, which I hoped it would replace,  the pad of the Optech is quite ...
  • I have an EM-1 too, which I ordered without handling and I'm considering a change to the XT-1, but not until the promised lenses are on the market and then I will try before I buy. I like the old ...
  • Does anybody else find that their level is fairly insensitive? I have to tilt my camera by an unacceptable amount before my levels'  bars indicate that a plane is no longer horizontal or vertical.
