  • I'll try that. I've noticed when I have setting to video, sometimes the images is blurry and if I power off, then back on, the focus is fine. It's quite annoying. I am responsible for reporting the ...
  • Thanks for the advice, but since I am in 'Movie" mode, I can't take videos if I set the camera to "M" manual, mode and take videos.
  • Created question thread Can I set focus on E-PL5?
    I use my Olympus to video old films (16, 8 and super 8 mm) by setting the camera on a tripod, projecting the film on to a screen and recording.  It works well enough for my purposes, except that at ...
  • I viewed some of your work...Amazing pics.  I especially liked the shot of the dentist with the new drill.  My dad was a dentist for almost 60 years.  He would have appreciated the picture. Steve
  • Yikes! 4K for a lens?  In my dreams. Steve
  • I have taken some shots with the filter and without and can't see any difference so I'm using the UV filter that I had on my older 200MM Pentax SMC lens. I don't recall how much that filter was, ...
  • Thanks Hotdog321, I Have an older 58mm filter from a lens from the 1970's.  I may use it if I'm in a dusty or windy environment, but will take your advice of not using one at all. As a journalist ...
  • Created question thread UV filters for newly purchased lens
    I just purchased a 70-300mm lens for my Olympus camera. It didn't come with a UV filter so I went on-line and viewed what's available. The photo store where I often purchase items has about 150+ ...
  • Replied in Pixel Oppilas
    I can't get it working.  Probably is broken, as you suggested. Not really necessary anyway. Thanks for your response. Iagoman
  • I have 3 batteries in reserve.  I was able to video a 15 minute 16mm film, so I'm happy if the battery goes that long. Thanks for the response.
  • Created question thread Powering camera via wall plug?
    Is there a way to power my Olympus Pen Lite E-Pl5 using electricity instead of a battery? I am having some excellent success videoing old 16mm films using the "movies" setting on my camera.  The ...
  • Replied in Pixel Oppilas
    MY Olympus Pen-lite E-PL5 came with a small remote that has "XTWRUNI" on it. I can't find anything in the manual that says how to get this to work. I never used it when I purchased the camera, and ...
  • I forgot to mention that the camera I wanted to use my old Pentax lenses on is my Olympus Pen lite E-Pl5. The adapter doesn't allow me to use the systems metering so I manually adjust the camera. I ...
  • After taking in all the great advice from many of the  members, I ended up with a $49.99 adapter from B&H photo.  I now can use all my old Pentax Spotmatic MCA lenses and other brands too that are ...

  • I was (am) pretty new at this adapter idea and this site. The mavens on this site were instrumental in heading me in the right direction. I was going to scrap my old m42 lenses from the 1970's but ...
  • All I can say is, this site is the greatest.  The responses I have received and the info supplied have made my search for the correct item a lot easier. I have gone from the idea of spending ...
  • Searching the net I found so many Pentax cameras for sale, with lenses, bodies only, I am totally confused. Some cameras I saw are: Pentax K-2000 Pentax K-50 16.3 mp + 18-55 lens for $202.00 + ship. ...
