  • Try a "reset" (sorry if this has already been discussed). I'm not referring to the - reset to defaults - option that I think is in the menu (although you should try that first). There is also a ...
  • Could it be the card? - not saving image? - try taking photo with a different card? Also, I think there is a setting that keeps the photo from being auto-displayed after taking it; the image is ...
  • I will have no problem buying one - new or used. My bigger question is about the future of what seems like a very good concept. I found this 2 year old rumour about a new XZ-3 lens: http://www.43ru ...
  • Yes, I took the 5 minute survey today - that's how I ultimately stumbled on the news about the discontinued XZ-2. Not to sound too cynical about the Oly surveys, but I think the main purpose is to ...
  • Created discussions XZ Discontinued?
    According to this Olympus site - the XZ-2 has been discontinued? www.getolympus.com/us/en/xz-2.html Say it isn't so! Will there be an XZ-3 ? I know I can find one for sale somewhere - and I plan on ...
  • Less thinking and more doing. Right now you are in the "speculative" mode, but you haven't even used the camera in some time. So, instead of all the "thinking about it" - why not wipe the cobwebs ...
  • I still shoot with the E-510. Some of my settings: - exposure - I shoot in manual mode (the the +/-  is irrelevant to me; my shot review flashes blown highlight areas - and I chimp as needed) - ...

  • So, it's been a paperweight for nearly a year. I don't think there is much hope for this. I might take a "devil may care" attitude and just tear into it. Search online for a parts list with images ...
  • Replied in DIY
    Thanks for sharing your DIY mods. I"m a big fan of adaptation.
  • Replied in Olympus E510
    Excellent - this is the ultimate resource for shooting with the E-510! Russ, begin learning how to shoot in "A" aperture priority mode.  This will teach you the relationship between lens opening ...
  • Replied in Olympus E510
    Russ, was your experience with it in the past - positive? If so, just repeat the experience for family and trips or whatever. "Snapshots" From your trepidation I get the feeling that your past ...
  • I think you will find pretty much all the TV commercials on youtube: EM10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=It7nyFXUtms Even way back in the film days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgmK0xCexsM
  • Where are all the nay-sayers? A few months ago Jay's post would have been met with lots of arguments against going with an EM1! Where are all the people who protested so loudly? Come on people - ...
