  • Replied in Mitsuki
    The internet is full of unanswered questions. Is your intention to instigate a discussion about the potential usefulness of answering them, or are you trying to get a laugh?
  • Replied in Mitsuki
    Mitsuki lenses were produced by Hoya/Tokina and also sold under both those brand names, for a short time at the very end of the 1970s and perhaps into the very beginning of the 80's. The Hoya name ...
  • This I totally agree with and it's one of the reasons I have recently sold my E-PM2 cameras and bought a few E-PM1s to replace them with! I really find that I very much like the microcontrast ...
  • You are absolutely right about the video and exposure comp buttons. They are far too easily confused in use. I still have this camera and still consider it excellent. If it had auto ISO in manual ...
  • One of me E-PM1s is acting in an unstable way, with the beep working only intermittently, and sometimes freezing when it is enabled. And it freezes completely when you try to shoot video. I think ...
  • Hi. Thanks - that sounds promising. I was a bit worried that his site seems to contain so little information. I am also a bit worried that the process might be more risky with cameras of the ...
  • I'm alarmed to read through this thread and deduce that there is a great deal of sample variation with this lens. I've experienced sample variation with kit lenses, the slow 40-150 etc and not ...
  • Created discussion thread Olympus Firmware Updating
    I have a few Olympus cameras, but haven't done any firmware updates for a few years. The last time I tried it, it took several attempts and didn't make any practical difference to the camera's ...
  • I bought an EOS 300D a few weeks ago for very much less than $80. The pixel level quality at ISO 100-200 is quite outstanding. The amount of chroma noise at higher ISOs reminds me how far we have...

  • I just got a FOTGA CY M4/3 adapter which takes extreme force to fit my Yashica ML 50/1.7 to, as well as being too loose on the camera side...but worse than that the adapter seems to be binding on ...
  • One of the things I find interesting about this is the extent to which Nikon were perceived as being market leaders at the time. Their swivel-body design stood out, caught the imagination, and...

  • I always knew them to be natural partners.

  • Replied in Date?
    One of my E-PM1 cameras has the disappearing date problem. I haven't had the camera very long, but I notice that the card removal trick seems to work and that I can change the battery and retain ...
  • "JPEGs have pleasing saturated colour". So do those of my 2003 EOS 300D, when I set the saturation to high. Can we have a bit more depth to the review? It lacks substance.

  • Neither of those is a database of lens serial numbers or a clue to decoding them. I'm also looking for info about Minolta serial numbers.
