  • Replied in Olympus 12-100
    Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 and PanaLeica 10-25 f/1.7 come very close, but esp. the latter is "BHE". Weather-sealed 30-80mm equivalent lens with f/1.8 for MFT would be great. Limited range to keep BHE to a ...
  • I would prefer 1800 menu items than 900, albeit I wish there was a way to save your modifications to memory card - or even better would be a settings text file, where you could use your computer ...
  • Want to buy a Siluet Elektro or Orion EE camera. Must have an intact battery door. Does not need to be in operational condition, I will fix it and add to my collection. Siluet Elektro is the sister ...
  • Excellent, film camera world just _needs_ a new body.

    Since they still manufacture mirror mechanisms and prisms, it might not be that hard to switch to film.

    I bet it will be either new batch...

  • Letting condensation build up regularly and often on glass surfaces will eventually buld up even layer of haze on lens elements and sensor cover glass. While you might not see it affecting ...
  • 85mm is perhaps the most expensive focal length due to everyone wanting such lens. Jupiter-9 has okay price-to-performance ratio. Even those are beginning to be too expensive @ ebay IMHO If you ...
  • +1 to Canon = Toyota. I feel Olympus is the Peugeot of cameras. When they get it right, the features are top notch, but there's always some details that are stupidly poorly designed. And the ...
  • I use the exact same. Just a short shoelace, or cut some cord that just fits through the strap eyelet. Bonus: does not make noise if you happen to take video clips.

    Neck straps may work if you...

  • Whoa, you cannot set shutter speed based on film roll, you are supposed to change shutter speed + aperture according to lightning conditions. Still, your camera and/or lens CAN be faulty, they are ...
  • I've used Audacity program to look at the waveform of the recording. Using bulb, you can record sound with some seconds between opening and closing. That way, you can just look at the waveforms ...
  • Yes excellent, good sample pictures also! I have used this method too in tandem with others. Difference is, that I zoomed in with the digital camera so that there were no dark corners visible. I ...
  • Yes your camera body is out of alignment. Needs service. Either the focusing screen is not ok or  (most likely) the mirror is not sit in proper place. For example, I have a Praktica SLR that has ...
  • I wonder if it seems that everyone has too vibrant images, could it be that the display color management of the viewer is not working as it should. I suspect phones do it ok, but desktops can be ...
  • Check Gato Amarillo's links, they're good In short, testing using some paper test images or shooting computer screen does not tell entire truth in real-world situations. The problem is that if you ...
  • It doesn't, but it can be used with adapter with any mirrorless system camera Yes. Your lens most likely has the typical issue, oil on aperture blades. The old focus helicoid grease disintegrates ...
  • You can try some alcohol solvent carefully and buy a small soldering iron. With that, you can warm up very specific places without warming everything up nearby. I have succesfully used this method ...
  • When I shall win at lottery, this is an instant buy

    I like 35mm, but 28 is also "okay". 30mm is good compromise. 43mm is nice as true normal lens, often 50..55mm lenses are a bit long. And 71mm...

  • Yes! So the defect at the top means there's reflection at the bottom of the film opening. Agreed that does not look like light leak from the back. To OP, the plate at the bottom of the mirror box ...
  • I have several Zenits and none of them have light leaks. Which makes this strange! :-D As others said, the shutter travels horizontally, so if it jams you should see vertical bands in photos. Easte ...
  • If sensor area or diagonal, specify also aspect ratio. Dimensions might be the shortest way of describing all in the same
