Having used an Oly E3 intensively since it first became available years ago, the camera has developed its first fault, and rather a serious one I fear. I now get whiteout of the image as if it has been severely overexposed, but with a small area of "shadow" to one side rather like when you photograph your own finger tip when it has covered the lens. I fear it may be the sensor at fault. The problem temporarily cured itself for a few shots, but has now gone back to fault mode. I have tried...
I just bought a couple of Wasabi LP E17 batteries and a charger for my E3 to supplement the 2 Canon batteries I have which I'll be taking to Africa next month. I'll be using the E3 as my landscape/still life camera and, as usual, my 7DMII + 100-400 II for wildlife. Since this is the first time I've used the M3, will I be able to use the Wasabi charger for both the Wasabi and Canon batteries? I know I can't use the Wasabi batteries in the Canon charger because they aren't...
I just bought an a6300 (Version1.00} with the 16-50 kit lens and the E35mm F1.8 oss lens from Amazon, both Version .01 When I try to activate phase detection autofocus, I get the message that phase detection autofocus is not valid with these lenses. I have searched for firmware updates for these lenses and this camera but to no avail. Did I receive old models of these lenses and this camera? Are they available in more advanced versions of firmware which will support phase detection autofocus?
I have been considering getting a flash trigger for shooting lightning storms. Some of the reviews I've read on some of the inexpensive brands weren't great, but I was wondering if any of you Oly shooters had any experience with them or advice? My main body is an Oly E30... Thanks in advance, Steviecool... --'Don't mistake lack of talent for genius'-Type O Negative
I must be missing something in setting up my d810 and sd-600 flash unit for remote wireless flash? I can't seem to get the d810 to only activate the remote flash without also activating the on camera flash. I go to custom menu e3 and chose commander mode. The built in flash has three options which include TTL, manual or --. I select -- in which the manual says "the built in flash will not fire although remote flash units do". I raise the built in flash unit as the manual says to do. I...
Hello everyone i am thinking of upgrading to the EM1 from a E30 and realize i will need the mmf3 adapter due to the fact i only have 4/3 lens and my question is after searching for an adapter im thinking i should go for the genuine olympus version at around 200 dollars. I have noticed the non genuine adapters are only around 30 dollars and they seem to have a tripod socket on the adapter where the genuine adapter doesnt ? Can anyone body advise on what they use and wether i should just go for...
I just bought one of these second hand. It appears to work fine on my E3 but when used on my EM2 with 4/3 to m4/3 converter the manual focus does not to work and I have an impression that the autofocus is not as efficient. Is that how it is supposed to be? Many thanks MichaelR
Can anybody who has shot with this combination (with the converter of course) tell me how well the shooting went. I need to replace my E-3.... budget is too tight to grab the EM-5 + 40-150/2.8. I will be shooting youth softball with this combo... I have always used my E-3 and 50-200 with great results so far... good enough for the league to ask me to take the action shots this year for the entire league! My E-3 is about to die.. I have a missing card pin (still works, but not great) and it is...
With something other than Photoshop? I can't get it to work with my E-M10 files, it won't even load them it just does not respond, either as an external editor to ACDSee Ultimate 9 or as a standalone editor. It will work as a standalone or as an external editor with my old E30 files, but in either case, when I try to save, it generates an error. See Below: I'm thinking it might only work with ACR or Lightroom in general and only with older camera formats in particular. Has anyone had any...
