Re: Wild About Britain site down again!

Yeah, but the word on the street is that the original WAB site is dangerous, admittedly from ex mods who may have an axe to grind. But I agree, it had excellent functionality. I now get the same...

Re: Wild About Britain site down again!

Is that the original Wild About Britain site?

If so, it is very dodgy, it has been hacked. There is a new one somewhere, it was mentioned on the WAB facebook group.

If not, I'll shut up :)

Re: No more parts for E-m5 mk1

For you that time, a great deal. But that means that you must use Oly repair, be they cheaper or dearer than a 3rd party authorised repairer. Still, nice to know if I need a new part fort my ancient...

Re: No more parts for E-m5 mk1

So Olympus stopped supplying parts to authorised repair shops about 2 years after they stopped selling the camera. That is dreadful. Presumably it's just Oly UK. Makes me think whether Oly kit is...

Re: No more parts for E-m5 mk1

Interesting, thanks for that *chr. Trouble is that for an undiagnosed problem you can't get an accurate quote so you're taking pot luck. What's the Oly repair guarantee period these days?

Re: No more parts for E-m5 mk1

If that's true and the Luton chap understood the missive from Oly correctly, it would suggest that the parts are no longer made and Oly are keeping the remaining stock to themselves, presumably to...

Angry No more parts for E-m5 mk1

My mode dial has stopped working on my trusty old E-M5. I'd sent it in to the Luton Cameras 9 months ago for a faulty mode dial, and they gave it a clean & things were fine, then yesterday it stuck...

Re: Dust!!!!

I've decided to get a man in to do it.

Reasons:
1. It's pollen what's the problem, and that happens most when I'm out botanising, and in future I'm taking 2 bodies for that since I only ever...

Re: Dust!!!!

It was the force you use when cleaning that I was worried about, you are putting some pressure on the sensor, both sideways and "vertically" which is being absorbed by the IBIS mounting. But since...

Re: Dust!!!!

If I had an old Pentax I'd give it a go. I successfully cleaned my mates Canon 1D years ago, but neither of those have a sensor held in place by 5-axis stabilisation! It's over 3 years old, I think...

Nice shots Alf, particularly #1, the light is marvellous. It's a justifiably popular spot for photographers. Also good for Purple Sandpipers at the right time of year *yes

Re: What is the location of a photo?

It's just so I can find the photos in my Lightroom catalog, I was going to try and use LR's map facility. I'd never find anything if I didn't use keywords & stuff.
