    Hi All,

    I thought it would be appropriate to introduce myself.

    I am new to the forum, and stumbled across it whilst searching for topics relating to astrophotography and IR modification.

    Two areas of photography which I intend to focus a little more time on this next year.

    I have been an Olympus user all of my "Photographic" life, with my first digital camera being a 2MP Camedia C-2500 which I bought second hand (and still have).

    I am currently using E3, E620, E400 (converted for IR) along with an EP-2/PL-3.

    I am hoping that this forum/usergroup will provide a wealth of knowledge on everything from customising lens mounts to choosing the correct settings whilst using long exposures.

    So that's me, I will use search as often as possible (don't worry!!), if anyone wants to know anything further, then please do not hesitate to contact me!!

    Best Regards,

    OT

    Welcome aboard.

    Mmmmm modifying lens mounts. This sounds promising.
    Glad to have you with us.

      Thanks,

      I find it difficult now to find adaptors for 4/3 lenses. Loads for m43 but not always what I want/need!

      I will be sure to have a search this evening.

        Welcome to the group. Good to have another Essex member, our numbers are growing.

        Not sure I understand your question about adapters for 4/3 lenses. What do you want to adapt them to?

        Regards.

          Hi Peter,

          I use quite a few Pentax lenses (50m 1.7 is my favourite at the moment) and I have a few C mount TV lenses for m4/3 (unbranded TV lenses inc 12mm .95 and 50mm .95) and I would really like to use these with my 4/3 bodies. But there doesn't seem to be anything out there.

          Kind Regards,

            Talk to SRB Griturn.
            They seem to be able to make adapters for just about nay purpose.

              I don't think C-mount lenses will focus to infinity on a 4/3 body, the register is probably to long.
              It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
