Hi. I'm a relative newbie. The manual claims that in S-AF mode, I should be able to use the manual focus ring to to fine focus adjustment after triggering single autofocus with a half-press. It doesn't seem to work. I can twiddle the manual ring all day and nothing happens. The ring works fine in manual mode. Lens is a non-pro M.Zuiko 12-200 superzoom, which I love for my most common shooting (backyard birds through windows). The situation is I have a lot of birds on the steps to our deck. AF always wants to focus on the railings. I want to tweak the focus just a hair to get the bird crisp about 6 inches past the railing. I'm usually too slow on full manual focus.

Is there some setting magic I'm missing? There's no explicit S-AF + M setting, it's just supposed to work that way, but no dice.

Would you hesitate to take your E/pro camera out in the rain now and shoot? This was posed to me and I said, NO ISSUES shooting the old 4/3s in heavy rains. what you think?

Taken recently with an OM-D M1 Mkii 4K video and extracted as a single frame.

I have an older Olympus E-620 with a pair of lenses. I've recently wanted to try using them on a C Mount but after looking around haven't been able to turn up anything (lots of m4/3, but no full size 4/3). Has anyone ever heard of such a thing or know of any options? Thanks much in advance!

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,
