Bet it takes a different battery to all the other bodies!

If we ask Ian nicely he may get us full size print outs.
We could also pre order the latest toilet tube lens. Ed

The screen doesn't work on mine. Trip to Portugal I think.

I've still got the plastic cement I used to glue my E-3 back together so printing it on a sheet of plastic card will make it weather resistant.

OM did you check the box you should find four picture cards which you can stick on the LCD area. You should have a landscape , portrait , flower macro and one blank which you colour in yourself!

I'm tempted to print it and make it, has anyone actually tried yet?

Just enlarge it, then you can put a real camera inside, you know, a Canon or Nikon. :D:p:eek::D

Is REAL in the same sentence as Nikon & Canon not an Oxymoron?

To keep it real, I'd go MF and put a 6x4.5 inside, so as to keep faith with the 4/3 Form Factor. :D

I knew there was a reason I preferred the Bronica ETRS to the various other 120 sizes. Mind you, a Pentax 67 would be an easier shape to make fit.

One of the reasons I initially chose Four Thirds as my digital format was because the image ratio was similar to my ETRSi. Personally, I dislike the 3:2 ratio of "Full Frame" and APS-C.

I heard that the menu flap keeps coming unstuck.

Harold. Try sticky backed Velcro pads, this also makes changing the menu easier. Biggest problem is stopping the other menu screens getting dog eared in your camera bag. These are available for 5 pence from most shops. Ed

Once you have made it, you can paint it with clear acryllic nail varnish and it will be 100% waterproof :D

I've never seen dog ears in pet shops but I have seen pigs' ears. They somehow resonate with the idea of an Olympus camera, especially in the context of menus.

Graham I am in the process of making up the OMD EM10 Mk 2 model from the link you showed, can you supply the source? I would like to track down lenses for the model, there are tags printed on the body which makes me think a lens was available? If I am being silly I may as well go all the way.

Will post a shot when completed.


Guess who still has rain and is stuck indoors!!

Thanks:)

I'm still searching for the latest ones, so HERE (http://www.olympus-global.com/en/fun/wallpaper/camera/index.cfm?t=pc) is something to practice on...

Sorry, but I don't have an adapter. :D

Many thanks for taking the time to look these up for me. Just need to sort out your commission when I sell my first dozen on EBay!
