Re: Portugal servicing

I have used the Portugal service for two major repairs (one was to replace a smashed front element on the 7-14 Pro, the other complete IBIS failure on the original E-M1). Each time the service has...

Re: Focus Stacking

Bracketing allows you to have 999 steps, not 99.

Re: Focus Stacking

A lens such as the 60mm or the 12-40 Pro is perfect.

Re: Focus Stacking

It is very different for Stacking and Bracketing.

With Stacking you focus on the main point, not the closest.
When there was a limit of 8 with Stacking, the sequence made was:
1. Focus is on the...

Re: Conflicting Info from Olympus re 3 Year Extended Warranty

He was telling us about the original E-M1 which he had. The E-M1 II has had no reports of the problem, we can safely assume they fixed it.

Re: Conflicting Info from Olympus re 3 Year Extended Warranty

I expect you know that the problem doesn't happen if you leave the dioptre adjustment set to near 0. In other words wear your glasses.

Re: Servicing company question

Why do you want to service it? What is wrong with it? Why not just give it a wipe with a damp cloth?

Re: Scanner Mode

The current version of the updater is 2.2
I realise that people report that 2.1.3 works, but I prefer to use the latest, which came out some time ago now.

Re: Scanner Mode

3.1 is much better.
The best way to solve your update problem is to install Olympus Workspace, then update all the software (from its menu), and then do the camera update (from its menu).
It is...

Re: Updating/adding to custom function

You asked the same thing in mu43 as well and got the same reply.
Better to try one forum at a time, I almost wrote my reply twice.

Re: Updating/adding to custom function

Not quite right as that won't let you assign the mode and the shutter speed/aperture.

Do the following to edit the C3 settings.
1. Set mode dial to P A S or M depending on which mode you want C3...

Re: C-AF preferring the background

I would suggest you stick with S-AF until you have upgraded to 3.1
3.1 is a huge improvement for C-AF.
Can't you borrow a PC for 10 minutes?

Re: C-AF preferring the background

Before you try anything else, follow these three steps.

1. Make sure you are using firmware 3.1. This is most important in your case.
2. Try single focus point.
3. Use C-AF not +TR.

Re: Rubber grip falling off!

I'm wondering why you didn't get it repaired directly with Olympus. The camera shop may have forgotten about it and it was still there!

Re: HELP: Pro Cap

Yes, with C-AF Sensitivity set to +2 the C-AF responds much more quickly.
Default setting of zero: delay before adjusting focus is 170ms.
Setting of +2: no delay before adjusting focus.

Re: HELP: Pro Cap

Change from Small Cross to single standard size focus point. Cameras love to focus on walls.

Re: Another stupid question.

When doing tricky stuff only trust the histogram. Well worth displaying that in the viewfinder.

No, it is a much more exciting option. Try it using the instructions given.

Re: Extended Warranties

But they did learn. Since then both the Pen-F and the E-M1 II have proved extremely reliable. No dial problems, no strap lug problems, no power switch problems.

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

You say the camera shops in the UK can't by law sell used cameras?

Re: Extended Warranties

I never buy them. If they sell it for 100 then the chances are they have to pay out much less than 50 per warranty.
Also, this is a very well made and reliable camera.

Re: Another stupid question.

It is sensible. It reckons that even if you want to underexpose so much, it should still show (just) what you are looking at. Otherwise there is no point in looking at the viewfinder.
