Talking New to Olympus

Hi
I have just changed all my old gear in for Olympus after many years of Pentax and Nikon, getting use to the different modern displays on the back screen...no doubt many photos to follow

Re: New to Olympus

Welcome to the forum. I switched from Nikon a few years ago now and have never looked back.

Look forward to seeing your images.

Re: New to Olympus

welcome across - many of us have also used other cameras, but we find this one meets all our needs in many ways

Re: New to Olympus

I made the same change a few years ago. Once you've found the Highlight/Shadow displays in the finder, you'll wonder how you ever managed without them

Either link to photos on another website (e.g.Flickr) or upload them into the Gallery on this site (a menu on the header bar). From the Gallery you can copy a link to paste into a forum post.

Re: New to Olympus

As an added help from another hosting site (Flickr)...…………

On Flickr, make the required picture alone on the screen, ie with all of the photo details below. At the bottom right of the photo, you will see three symbols. Click the middle one, an upward arrow pointing to the right, this will lead you to a page "Share photo to:". Click on the BBcode. In the box below that, there will appear a long address. Copy that and then move to the E-Group forum, and post that code into a "New Thread" page...……...…

Good luck...

Thank you Mike. I have never knew they added that BB code link there. I was very unhappy when they removed that Right mouse button for that selection.

P.S. You also need to select that posting size.
