Thumbnails, and Windows 10...

So - since the last mega update for Win 10, I no longer have my .ORF thumbnails when browsing via Win Explorer.

Any idea what I can do?

I've tried some of the old-ish tricks.
Installed a...

Re: Rear dial problem

So - there's no alternative but to send these E-M1 back to Olympus for this repair, that seems to be sketchy, and only a short term fix anyway? This is brutal. I hope mine doesn't get this...

Re: Screen protectors

FWIW - I've been using tempered glass screens on my mobile phone for the last couple of years - and I reckon they have been invaluable - a couple of times I've dropped my phone from a low height, and...

Lens Bags

Maybe this should be in the accessories section - so apologies if the link to lenses is too tenuous. (And I have a feeling I may have already asked this question before, but couldn't find thread, so...

Re: Screen protectors

My tuppence worth.
I opted for an expert shield for my E-M1.
It seems to have done the trick.
Pricey, but decent.
I think the proof of quality of a protector though is how easy it comes of,...

Oly lens caps for 40-150mm f4-5.6 R

So - I managed to get a decent deal on this lens.
But - the seller didn't tell me it would come minus caps.
Not good.
So - I'm wondering if anyone has any spare Oly caps they want to sell.

I...

Re: Filters...

Sorry my lens is the 25mm f1.8 Zuiko - not the f1.4 Lumix.
I think it has a 46mm filter thread.

So - I'm in the market for a polarising filter - I think primarily for use with my 25mm f1.4 - mainly to be used for product photography.
Question is, without breaking the bank, what should I be...

Is the 14-140mm the mk1 or mk2 lens?

Re: Leica Elmar-r 100mm

Very rewarding. And in theory I'm up 120 if you think I'd have had to send it to get fixed. Really - if you know what you are doing, that could have been 120 for all of 5 mins work...

Re: Leica Elmar-r 100mm

Well, I've only just fixed it!!!

So - it turns out that when the name ring is loosened, indeed the area with the notches immediately underneath - that is a locking ring which secures the focussing...

Re: Leica Elmar-r 100mm

Not sure - it is what it is though. It's helping in some respects - as in the lens looks similar to mine - so similar method may be applied - but the footage is only so handy, as it isn't a complete...

Re: Leica Elmar-r 100mm

Mine is 2560 x 1440 - so a bit higher res.
It tends to be quite unforgiving with low res images etc, as run of the mill web page images end up looking quite pixelated as they're stretched to fit the...

It just completely gives me the fear.
The video above was only so useful as the quality isn't brilliant - and for some reason by default the speed is mega quick - but I eventually figured out that...

Re: Heads Up

Agreed - it's fine, as long as these sorts of listings don't outnumber the actual "for sale" listings.

Re: Leica Elmar-r 100mm

Ok - I'll try to explain. To loosen the lock you need to rotate the lock - you do this using the wrench. IT works in a similar way to a flat head screw driver in that the wrench tips fit in a slot...

Re: Leica Elmar-r 100mm

Update.

My lens wrench arrived - so I tried it out.
Complete failure.
For this lens it seems like a bespoke, or at least different type of key is required to loosen the ring.
I'm at a complete...

Re: Leica Elmar-r 100mm

Ok - so I ordered a lens wrench, or whatever you want to call it.
I opted for one of the curved ones - I think it will probably work better than the regular straight wrench given the unusual...

Re: Leica Elmar-r 100mm

See the ring with the notches in it - do we have any idea what way that turns?
Is it clockwise or anti, to unlock it?
