  • Hello Lawrence.  Sorry to hear about your camera's problem.  I don't have an E10, so I am assuming that it's like my E20.  Here is what happens when I power up the E20.  The red light below the ...
  • If you re-read the OP's original post, you will see that when he powers up, the viewfinder zooms to its maximum magnification and stays there regardless of the zoom position of the lens.  There is ...
  • Replied in P6000
    If the price seems right, then there's no harm in trying one out.  My advice is to shoot RAW and keep the iso's very low (64 or 100).  The jpegs on this model show smearing above iso 200, and have ...
  • Sorry EVAGORAS.  Sounds like the camera is faulty.  The viewfinder should be synchronized to zoom in and out with the lens.  The P5000 was a nice little camera, I bought one in 2007 too.  Too bad ...
  • I've still got a 5700 stashed someplace in my closet.  It was a very good camera in its day.  As long as you are ok with only 5mp, it should serve you well.  I would keep the iso at either 100 or ...
  • The e-10 and e-20 do not use sensors even remotely connected to the sensor in the e-1.  The e-1 used a 4/3 sized sensor.  The e-10 and e-20 used a 2/3" sensor, in other words, a sensor size ...
  • Dan, sorry you had such bad experiences with the Canon G's.  I've had the G2, 6, 7, 11, 12, and 15 and not experienced any scratched lenses from the protective shutters.  Although, anecdotally, ...
  • 0 for 3 certainly isn't a good day at the ballpark.  I think you ought to bear in mind that the P7100 is a couple of models out of date, and that any remaining stock still being sold might include ...
  • The old manual focus SP lenses used the adaptall mounts.  Back in the day, there was no such thing as an adaptall-to-eos adapter, but that doesn't mean that someone nowadays hasn't made one.  You ...
  • I'm sure this has been discussed in the past, but, off the top of my head, I think the E600 might have fewer filter effects than the E620, and also it lacks the E620's illuminated buttons.  ...
  • No, rubbing alcohol will not dissolve the anti reflective coatings.  Coatings are thin chrystalline layers of inorganic compounds such as magnesium flouride.  Rubbing alcohol, an organic compound, ...
  • There's probably all sorts of things you could try, with increasing levels of risk to your equipment.  One low risk option I sometimes use for greasy prints is cotton swabs dipped in unscented ...
  • 5700user:  First off, congrats on your 5700 working for 10 years.  That's a good run for any digital camera, especially if you've been using it regularly.  As far as your 2 issues go... I am a bit ...
  • I still use my E420 now and then.  I'm also in m4/3 but I still appreciate slrs for their optical viewfinders.  The only think the E4x0's lacked was IS.  I guess they couldn't fit it in, and still ...
  • Fwiw, I just tried a 16 gb card (Kingston Ultimate) into my E-1, and it seems to work fine (ie no error message).  No idea about the E-500.  Hope this is helpful.  :-)
  • Hi MPg1.  I shoot both Nikons and 4/3.  One of my Oly's is the E-600, which uses the same body as the E-620.  I am also familiar with the D40/40x/60 class body.  The E-600/620 is not appreciably ...
