Re: Problem with 300mm f/4 and E-M1

Haven't lockups like this been reported for just about every Olympus body since the E-1? Seeming to be totally random - although my own experiences (E-1 and E-3) suggested some correlation with C-AF...

Re: Windows 10 reinstallation

I think you'll be OK; my understanding is that Windows is in some way registered to your motherboard. I swapped from mechanical HDD to SSD a few months ago with no issues. Curiously - the expected...

Re: Bad experiences with Park Cameras

Won't go into details - but it extremely unlikely that Park Cameras are ever going to see the insides of my wallet.

Re: Lock ups today but not as I know them

I've occasionally seen something similar with an E-3.

Makes me wonder about Olympus firmware - is it written from scratch for each camera or (I suspect) is each version derived from an evolving...

Re: What's bugging you?

Organisations that insist that customers contact them through telephone call centres - thereby ensuring that they have a record of the interaction but the customer does not.

Re: Buttons freeze; Lock-up?

I've commented before that I (and others) have had similar lockups with older cameras (E1 and E3 in my case) and that I suspect firmware - further that all Olympus firmware probably derives from a...

Re: What do you think of this 'review'?

I think he has a point about the styling - and I see Nikon are now going down the retro road as well (can't see the appeal). First thing that struck me (more or less literally) when I briefly...

Re: EM-1 Lock-up Information

For what it's worth (and I have no E-M1 experience myself) I'll echo dbutch's comment above about the E-1. Both my E-1 and E-3 have had similar lockups on occasion - in the latter case there seemed...

Re: Adobe account security

Thanks, I may try that.

It seems to be a general issue with so many online setups - you can stop reading, using, visiting and so forth - but they never ever let you leave (and I'm sure it's at...

Re: Adobe account security

Does anyone know how to remove themselves from adobe.com?

I just did the "change password" thing - but really all I want to do is delete myself (having no further use for any Adobe products). ...

Canon CLI521C/Y/M/BK Ink Cartridges

Re: Middle-aged fuddy duddy

Re: Hybrid AF on the new E-M1

I've seen this comment a couple of times now, and it bothers me.

Are Olympus subtly managing expectations here?

For me, an absolute requirement would be superior performance to the E-5 - across...

Re: RRS and huge shipping charges when buying from the USA

What always irritates me most (and the examples above show this in action) isn't so much the VAT/duty as the outrageous charges that are imposed by RM/Parcelforce/UPS/Fedex/whoever for their...

Re: Who uses & like Windows 8?

I've had Windows 8 on a couple of PCs for 7 or 8 months now (various reasons including future-proofing). Runs fine, there are a few visible improvements and I suspect more going on invisibly. Not...

Re: Which RAW Processing SW Do You Use?

V5.0.26.

Some people like Silkypix, some don't. Personally I'm happy that they concentrate on processing rather than try to tie me into any sort of "library management".

Re: Cheesed off with Olympus

Only reason I have any brand loyalty is that I can't bolt my Olympus lenses onto a Nikon body (or vice-versa).

That's always been the manufacturers' game - lock you in to their products.
