Back in my 35mm film days I invested heavily into the OM system, having OM1-OM4 bodies with a good number of lenses from the Zuiko 16mm to the mirrored 500mm (and lots in between). I have equipment for macro shooting (OM extension tubes, lighting, etc.) as well as lots of other accessories; and yet, despite not shooting film for some time, I haven't been willing to part with this equipment. Moving to digital, I ended up going down the path of Nikon and have been quite happy with my choice...
Hi, Which one to choose for use with both OMD EM1 and Pana GX80 I already have 12-40 2.8, Pana 20mm 1.7, 12-32 & 32-100 kit lenses, Sigma 60mm but I really want a sharp portrait lens with a good bookey like the FT 50mm f2 that I've on E3 body. Thanks everyone in advance. http://gerard52.zenfolio.com
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
