Hello again :). Can we talk about covid? I am of the opinion that this is not a pandemic. And you? Greetings :) Guci

I would like to know what kind of forum is this? phpbb? Guci


Just wondering what the latest camera sales figures are in terms of brands (Canon vs. Sony vs. Oly). This is all I could find but I don't read Asian ;)


Hey Everybody!

OK, so it's been two (2) years since I've been here. :doh:
What's a couple of years between friends? :biggrin:

Before I go on, I will pause to say,
O' back in the day, back in the day!
How I loved spending time here.
Learning about digital photography.
Parsing my way through the 4/3rds lenses.
Waiting for the next/newest one to come out!
I miss all that!

And yes it's a little quiet, but I see names I recognize!
Michael Meissner!
and more, but those jumped out at me off the top!

So I'm hoping some of y'all can give me some SYMPATHY and advice.

I seem to have a DEAD E-1 here !

And I'm really upset!

Here's the situation:

I've been in the habit of keeping 2 of my E-1s "batteried up"
with a couple of my most useful lenses one on each.

And I pulled out one of them tonight and it wouldn't power on.
No problem, I thought; battery drained down.
So I put a fresh battery in it... no joy.

I've switched lenses, and batteries.
Used the same lenses and batteries with other body.
All parts work good with the other body.
The "bad" body stays bad.

And here's the curious data.
My cameras have an easy life.
I'm old, don't get out much.
Mainly just take a few pictures now and then close around.
All my photography gear stays in a bag in my office.
Nominal conditioned temp and humidity.
Camera worked last time I used it.
And now it don't!

Anybody got any ideas?
Any drill to run? Thing to do?

I'm really sorta distressed.
I LOVE the E-1 (my only camera btw).
Sometimes you just find something that you sorta meld with.
And the E-1 was sorta that experience in the camera field.
And I'm to old to learn another camera, fall in love again!

Would love to hear any ideas.
Anything I could/should do?
Anybody to send it to?
Olympus have a "legacy" repair department?
Anybody else?

Much obliged for any help,



In search for an extension grip for my Mark 5 iii. Yes, Olympus has the ecg 5. Fotodiox does not have one.
suggestions please. jerry

What is everyone using and what storage capacity?

Next Gen Sensor?

by Geodesic

Any word on the next gen m4/3 sensor? FF sensors are up to around 50MP while m4/3 has been stuck at 20 for years. Just wondering.

I made a bunch of bookmarks for family and friends as gifts and let them choose what they wanted. Here are some of them. It wasn't easy finding ones to fit. Some of them have extra space on one side, but it couldn't be helped, because they're only 2" x 6". They were a hit. My mother got a stack of them about an inch high. :D
I believe all but one were taken with my E-1.
