Its RKM's recent activity

  • Of course the 4800 x 2400 dpi is "printer internal only", because that is just the ink dots which only had 11 different colours, including the white paper base. However it isn't quite as simple as ...
  • The black finish on my wife's E-M1 was pristine before it was returned to Olympus, but they still want to charge to replace the entire top cover, itemising every little screw - the black finish is ...
  • You're obviously thinking along the lines of a quality plinth and plaque. I was considering something home made and more in keeping with the POS that will be placed on it.  ;-)
  • Thanks Maggie. Just had a chat with DKAVS but, unfortunately, they don't handle Olympus yet. Worth the try though. I bought the camera from a local LCE branch, so I'll give them a call and see what ...
  • Well repair cost is certainly the issue now! Apparently its the IS unit which is dead/defective and Olympus want £350 to fix it. That's 40% of the current cost of a brand new E-M1, even though it ...
  • Display resolutions of 72ppi are quite coarse by today's standards. That was the resolution of the original Mac, and it was pretty coarse even then. Most modern displays are at least 200ppi and ...
  • So you dispute the laws of physics which demonstrate beyond doubt that the optical design of the EVF is fundamentally flawed? Optics is my day job.  Look at the dimensions on the Epson screen that ...
  • That's good to know, although I was sure it closed when the camera was switched off or was unpowered due to the battery being removed. Sadly, that's my conclusion as well.  Having more than 50 ...
  • How? Did you miss the point about the camera being TOTALLY unresponsive? It simply gives a live image on the rear LCD and a dark, but not completely black, screen on the EVF for about 5sec then ...
  • Well you won't be able to honestly say that again, because now you have.  Just because you haven't experienced it doesn't mean it isn't a problem. I never experienced the back spontaneously ...
  • Created discussion thread E-M1 lock up with open shutter
    My wife's Olympus E-M1 has stopped working after what I think is less than 10k shots. When powered off the shutter remains open, so the sensor can be exposed by removing the lens. Removing the ...
  • Neither of the Nikon nor Canon fiascos wrecked other pieces of kit and we're eventually acknowledged and fixed. It's more than 50 years since the OM-1 was released and strap lugs are still breaking ...
  • This wouldn't be acceptable for the entry level model of any other brand.  For this to be Olympus' flagship model realty highlights their appalling competitive position in the industry.
  • Sadly that is hope triumphing over reality. Loosening camera lugs has been an Oly feature since at least the OM-1.  What makes you think the latest generation of Oly engineers have learned anything ...
  • It's my wife's EM-1, but she had that problem and the evf was replaced by Olympus. She has babied it since to avoid any chance of evf sunburn. Then the rear dial stopped working, and that was ...
  • Replied in Film Scanning
    There is a difference between what it actually says on the spec sheet and what you, or any reasonable person, might think it means - a group of scanner manufacturers went to court I the 90s to ...
  • Replied in Film Scanning
    You are kidding, of course!  Scanning film may be a dying art, but suggesting a flatbed will do more than "OK" to 35mm film is simply a joke. There isn't a flatbed scanner on the planet that will ...
  • No, you are conflating your views with mine. If you hadn't clipped my post to just the part quoted then you would have read the answer to that question. Everything is a compromise: if a cheaper ...
  • It isn't a question of wanting to use the lens stopped down.  Its using the lens at its best.  Sometimes some other requirement, for example the lens speed or shallow depth of field, takes priority. ...
  • And my point is that most people who have shelled out a considerable wodge for any product, including "hugely expensive wide aperture lenses", will want to use it at its best. I doubt if ...
