  • I've only have had the lens fail to retract when the battery ran out of juice when I was using a 3rd party battery (though the battery's age may have been a factor too).  When I followed up with a ...
  • I was able to get an Olympus refurb at my local (Minnesota) Camera store in October.  Over the winter, when I don't shoot much, every time I walked by it I would pick it up to take mindless shots ...
  • Thanks all for your replies, I think I found the info in the EM-10 m2 manual (I initially just had an  updated EM-10 m1 and it's (not updated) manual) "To prevent camera shake caused by the small ...
  • Created discussion thread 0" anti-shock AND 1/8" delay?
    Hi,  I understand the O" anti-shock is to reduce image degradation from shutter vibration  and in the past people used 1/8"  "anti-shock" to reduce image degradation caused by camera movement from ...
  • Is the battery freshly charged?  If not, charge it and try again.
  • Yes even F3.2 seems sharper than F2.8, though F4 seems sharpest, F5.6 a little less so, and F8 is softer, but not as bad as F2.8.  I understand for macro photography depth of field trumps any ...
  • It certainly is much faster than OV3 v1.5 (the latest I could run on my OS 10.6.8.) I tried Olympus Viewer 3 v2.1 on OS 10.9 I'm running a Mac Mini4,1  2.66Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 8gb RAM
  • I don't know why power zooms are the rule. The two cameras I can think of with a manual zoom are the Panasonic FZ30 & FZ50 and the Fuji S6500, all are no longer made. I think KEH has a "bargain ...
  • Thanks.  No, that's off, this is a mechanical thing.  Any way, the seller resolved it to my satisfaction.
  • I had a  similar problem, the battery I was using  became exhausted in such a way as not to leave power/time for the camera to shut itself down and retract the lens. It was a Maximal Power brand ...
  • Hi Paul N12, Thanks for digging up your F30 and checking; I've since been able to come to a satisfactory outcome with the seller. My F20 doesn't behave that way either, but it's an F20. It's too ...
  • Created question thread F31FD shutter creaks, normal?
    Hi, I picked up a used F31FD for a good price, but the action of the shutter button is a little rough. Between the half-depressed to the full depressed position it creaks (you can both hear and ...
  • The Nikon TC-E15ED has a good reputation, unfortunately the rear lens element is recessed quite bit, so it would probably vignette at lower zoom settings than the Olympus. Some people cut the ...
  • I find the silver metallic Sharpies more permanent than the black ones.  At least they don't wipe  off easily with alcohol.  I don't know how well they hold up to abrasion. -Will
  • H, My full spectrum E-PL1 doesn't focus well with my Rokinon 7.5mm, which otherwise is fine on my normal spectrum cameras. At the closest focus setting of the lens it focuses at about 3" from the ...
  • Well, I got a separate "Personal Items" insurance policy with my carrier (State Farm).  Which, by the way, doesn't have a deductible but also doesn't cover things like phones(too risky ...
  • Hi, I also have E-PL1, but converted to full spectrum*.  It works fine with my m43 14-42 and 40-150, but I can't get my Rokonin 7.5mm to focus with it (it looks badly out of focus in 14x preview ...
  • I too got an IR conversion at Kolari, a compact  camera (Fjui F20) to full spectrum.  Kolari was quite nice and responsive to any questions I had. The camera has functioned fine and the image ...
