Micro Four Thirds (MFT) is a vendor-neutral platform that standardizes the information communicated between camera and lens. Lenses can inform the attached camera body some of their chromatic aberration (CA), lens distortion, and and vignetting characteristics. This allows for an MFT body to do in-camera lens corrections. Aside from the obvious reasons of ...

Olympus is part of the micro-4/3 consortium also including Panasonic and a number of other manufacturers of both bodies and lenses. The departure of one major player with a long history and reasonable impact and experience may well reduce interest of quality lens manufacturers in catering to this format. Olympus also shared flash foot standards (or non-...

Original author: Marc Lacoste. Used under CC-BY-2.5 license from Wikimedia Commons. If you are referring to the centre part of the camera, with the two rails and the silver dot surrounded by black plastic - no, you do not need to remove the cap. This is known as a hotshoe. Its purpose is to allow you to connect an external flash and allows the camera to ...

This is a fantastic question! I copied the file off my E-M10 III (same filename incidentally, so not based on serial) and opened it in HxD. This is what the beginning looks like: Offset(h) 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F Decoded text 00000000 30 30 30 33 00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 0003............ 00000010 00 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 ...

You know the film canister? And you had to pull the film leader out a little to load the film into your camera? Well, any film that gets exposed to light is ruined. Film is light sensitive. Extremely light sensitive. The photos you have taken so far have been lost. The film that remains in the canister is still usable. (The canister is designed not to let ...

The screen on the back of a digital camera is essentially a miniature computer screen. The artifact you are noticing is called a hot-pixel. They are common on screens and even though annoying they are not always considered a default unless there are many. Computer screen manufacturers sometimes have a specific guideline as to how many dead pixels are ...

The problem you have is the purpose of dome cases are to exclude the water close to the lens. Those nice images you see with a clear waterline are only possible because the waterline is held a little way away from the lens so make it more distinct. If you could get the dome without any casing, you need some way of sealing the camera against the lens with ...

The maximum size a card generation supports tends to be a good guess. However, using significantly larger card sizes than available (and documented) at time of a camera release may lead to its own problems. A Sony DSC-R1 I have will accept 32GB for MS-PRO media (provided via micro-SDHC in a stack of adapters) but not more. It will support 128GB SDXC cards (...

In addition to actual hardware (and there are counterfeit cards that are smaller that what the label says), the real limit is how the card id formatted. There are three ways to format cards: +---------+---------------+--------------+----------+ | Name | SD Card type | Max capacity | Max file | +---------+---------------+--------------+----------+ | ...

Will this Lens Mount work with the Canon lenses I have? YES, It will allow you to mount your FD, or FL, lens's to your PEN E-PL1 but see note below, I can not speak to functionality as I know nothing about the PEN E-PL1. From the amazon link. Note: This is a manual adapter, so lens functions that rely on electronic communication with the camera body (...

Not strictly an answer, but upgrading the firmware from v1.3 to v1.6 seems to have done the trick. I orientated the screen up, folded it back down and the LCD image has returned to normal. Update - the issue has returned, so I've upgraded to an OM-D E-M10 Mark III.

No you cannot. Though both systems use the 2.4 GHz radio band, their communication protocols are completely incompatible with each other. In addition, while Godox does make X1R receivers for Canon, Nikon, and Sony, at this time, they do not make a four-thirds compatible receiver, so if you were to add a Godox receiver to the foot of the FL7600WR, you would ...

You've certainly fogged the frame that was in the film gate, and the ones before and after it. Most likely, there will be some damage to film that was already wound up on the takeup spool as well, though images near the start of the roll may have little enough damage to be salvageable. You can, if you wish, finish the roll, but you may run into ...

This question is five months old, so I'm not sure if you still have this lens. I have an E-M10 III and the same lens. Occasionally the lens doesn't extend or retract when turning on/off. Generally power-cycling (i.e. removing the battery for 30 seconds and then retrying) does work. If that doesn't work, the lens can be manually initiated: Turn off the ...

This is an old post that I've just stumbled across. I can confirm that a Nissin i40 (micro 4/3 model) definitely works with an Olympus Trip 35 (1979 model) in manual mode. The Nissin has manual selection from 1/1 to 1/256, you will need to either manually calculate your flash exposure or use some trial and error. Thanks to the original poster here, I've ...
