  • 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  I think you ought to bear in mind that the P7100 is a couple of models out of date, and that any remaining stock still being sold might include ...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 ...
  • Replied in E 620 help
    It's $7 here....... http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/parts/battery-cover-11228.html
  • I buy locally a lot, but only if it's at least competitive with what I can get online.  Sometimes that means waiting a few months for my local shop's semi-annual sale, but I'll wait those extra ...
  • If you want to go back to the '50s and the Korean War (which is admittedly before my time), the dominant 35mm cameras for photojournalism were the Leica and the Contax.  Nikon tried to get into ...
  • Hi j4jamal.  $200 is a pretty good price for a used S3.  Even if you don't like it, you could probably ebay it later on, and not lose much money at all.  It is slow writing raw files, but several ...
  • I did a quick Amazon search for the WC-E68, and it turns out that it is "frequently" bought with a 49mm step-down ring.  So I guess you could take this as a clue that it might accept a generic ...
  • Replied in Fuji S3 Pro
    Hi Cyrus.  I think you ought to definitely give it a try.  The S3 is still a good camera.  Sometimes, the older Fuji dslrs develop strange power issues, but somehow they still remain usable.  With ...
  • I kind of remember a similar issue being raised soon after the E-P1 was introduced:  how do you get the lens to focus at infinity? I don't remember which member(s) came up with the idea, but this ...
  • Replied in Fuji S3 Pro
    Is your viewfinder dim and out of focus when the battery pack is removed?  Does it brighten and get sharp after the battery pack is inserted? If you have the AC adapter (AC-5VX), then I suppose you ...
