Re: New territory for me - E-M1 shutter stuck!

I have a can of "air duster" on my desk - 1 from Poundland.
There are various warnings on the back of the can about "liquified gas" and damage to plastics etc. It doesn't mention what the liquified...

Re: New territory for me - E-M1 shutter stuck!

If it's been sitting unused for a long time it might be worth running a series of continuous bursts to see if it frees up?

Re: E-M10 shutter repair

Fantastic - I bought my E-M10ii from Camera Jungle about 18 months ago and I've been very pleased with it.


100% disclosure - mine arrived with some minor scratches on the viewfinder bump. It's...

Re: E-M10 shutter repair

I had the E-M10 Mki and the Mkii is a very worthy replacement. Better stabilisation and EVF and the changes to the buttons and handling make it nicer to use too.
My Mki went to my brother in law...

Re: Free software?

GIMP is great but last time I opened it it wouldn't import ORF natively (or any RAW).
You need to use UFRAW or something to do the initial import.
For a short while I did an import in OV3 then...

Re: Laowa Launch 4mm Circular Fisheye for m4/3

Looks like a lot of fun for $199 If you can keep your fingers and feet out of view :)

Re: Hi from South Wales

The E-M10ii only came with a quick start guide and the PDF on a disc.

The full manual is quite a tome!

Having it on paper is very helpful when you're getting to grips with it to begin with if...

Re: Hi from South Wales

Welcome!


FWIW I bought a printed manual for my E-M10ii from ebay from a seller pdf-2-print on a recommendation from here.
They didn't have it available but listed it when I asked them to :)

Re: panasonic lenses

Some of the Panasonic lenses have aperture rings - these don't work on Olympus bodies.
I have one Panasonic lens on my E-M10ii - the 25mm f1.7 and it's brilliant.

Re: F Stop.............!!

Just curious as to why you’d got the settings you had.
As I said I normally shoot P and scroll from there if needed.
Some of my odder results have been inadvertently leaving A or S mode settings...

I've had some shots that apparently "look soft because of defraction" using extension rings for pictures of...

Re: Can this price be for real?

Might be legit - it's in Switzerland and based on the other items and feedback might well be used - there's no indication they're claiming it's new.
They're recently sold a 14-42mm EZ pancake for a...

Re: Jessops deal: E-PL8 150 off and you can claim a free 45 f/1.8

For 299 that's the E-PL8 with the EZ 14-42mm pancake and the f1.8 45mm.
That's a heck of a deal!

Re: Panasonic Lumix offers

Useful, the 15mm was always tempting but too close to the 17mm to spend that much money on.
The aperture ring and MF switch sound like fun for a retro feel but the ring doesn't work on Olympus :(

Agreed - at that price I'd be tempted to try to back order - if I didn't already have the Olympus 17mm f1.8

Re: Continious Bolt

If you are in the mood you might find turning Deghosting to OFF in lightroom will stop it removing the bolt too. I might be wrong though :)

Re: Amazon deal on E-M10 II twin lens kit
