Daft question

Iíve been going through some older photos and have found that the V2 firmware photos are not as sharp as many others were getting on here, so the move to V3 firmware has made a massive step for me.

Is it possible that the V2 firmware upgrade knocked something slightly out of calibration and V3 has cured it?? I canít think how it could be device specific if it was.

Re: Daft question

Olympus claim improved focussing for V3 so might be that or something else has been tweaked?

Re: Daft question

Are you on mirror lock up? I found that the shots taken with the normal shutter not as sharp as those with the mirror lock up set to 0s. there is a rhombus displayed in the SCP.

Are you sure you have a mirror?

You are referring to anti-shock mode, with the diamond. Your advice is good.

No mirror but there is still a mechanical shutter. It seems that it will cause some sensor shake.

Re: Daft question

Yep your point was correct but you got your terminology mixed up a bit Henry. Personally I always use the 0s anti shock mode with that little diamond in either single or multi shot modes. I found it made a big difference to the sharpness of images particularly when I was using the 14-140 Panasonic lens. Have stuck with it since switching to the 12-100 so not sure if it makes such a difference with that one. I just left it on antishock mode really for insurance I guess.

Re: Daft question

Interesting on zero seconds anti shock I've never thought to try that. I usually use at least 4 seconds anti shock when doing moon shots on a tripod to allow any movement to settle down when firing. I actually fire the shutter from the touch screen as it is a lighter touch than the button. Not a Daft question at all Walti!

Re: Daft question

I completely missed the fact that there was a partial eclipse and well done those that captured it.

Doesn't the use of standard mechanical shutter or even anti-shock mechanical shutter just introduce more chance of blurring the image? When doing moon shots either handheld or with a tripod I always use the electronic shutter. There is no chance anything is going to move suddenly in front of the moon and create an issue.
