Hello all, I'm hoping to get some direction and buying a new camera/system. I am currently using a Sony Alpha A100 with the two kit lenses and an additional old Minolta 100-300 lens. I also have a Olympus E510 with the two kit lenses. I am pretty underwhelmed with both. The Sony is "my" camera and the Olympus I bought for my wife. I started out shooting a Minolta 7000 years ago and upgraded to a 700SI after that. Once digital cameras started to become the norm I waited forever and a day for...

I just received a reconditioned OM-D 10 and 14-42 and 12-50 set up.  The 14-42 goes on smoothly and very similar action to all my other lenses with my older E510.  Simply push the release button and the lens twirls on and off very smoothly.  But the 12-50, (with a metal mount) goes on very tight and must use a lot of force.  I think something is wrong and think long term it will drive me crazy, as all previous interchangeable lens cameras I have had all lenses just go on and off very smooth. ...

I was wondering what the best settings were for the best daytime video on animal subjects that may be at a distance. Also, is auto focus the best to use or can/should I use manual focus? Thanks in advance, Steve

I wonder if anyone can help me, I am after buying a new telephoto lens above 150mm for my Olympus E510, most of the Olympus range seem rather expensive. So could anyone please advise me of any that are suitable and not over priced ?

Hi, Tested calibration of my E-5 using the "Dot" method. I started of by testing just using the center focus point (which I use the most) and did get some improvement so happy with the results. Now the question on my mind is what to do with all the other points, is it worth while to calibrate them separately? Did anyone actually go thru the process of individually testing all focus points? If you did, did you get (significantly) different calibration values for the other calibration...

I got an OMD EM1 because my E-500 broke. But I kind of miss the characteristic blue color of E-500. I can get E-500 like color rendition from EM1 by playing around with RAW files. I wonder whether there are some camera settings I can set in the EM1, which can help me to get that E-500 colors, in out of the camera JPEGs from EM1. Best regards Buddika

I would like to try my hand at astrophotography with my E-510.  How can I keep my shutter open indefinitely?  I don't have a remote nor a shutter cable.  I was thinking of mounting the camera on a tripod, placing a piece of cardboard over the lens, opening up the shutter for as long as I wanted to, then replacing the cardboard over the lens and then closing the shutter.  Does anyone know how I can do this with this camera?  Thanks

Currently I do have E-520 which mostly I use with Sigma 50-500 lense. I would like to get used with low mileage either E-3 or E-5. E-3 body I could get for ~ $300 E-5 would be ~800 or more. Any suggestion? reasons? Thanks in advance.
