    Re: Others converting to E-510

    Trustedreviews agree with you, they reckoned the level of features on the E-510 meant it wasn't an entry level camera and compared it favourably against models higher in their respective ranges from...

    Re: August 07 - Water

    There's an error on my camera, I have the month set wrong which means the EXIF shows as September rather than August. It was taken at the start of August as the weather conditions should indicate.

    Re: Camera to hard disk connection

    I didn't time the transfer but it seemed to be around two seconds per picture which I would say is slower than the E-510 connected directly to the PC. I'll try some measurements later to get some...

    New UK 7-14mm deal on ebay - worth going for?

    I'm always keeping an eye on the 7-14mm and noticed there's a new seller with 7-14mm lenses:

  6. Re: Olympus FL-50 & STF-22 Drivers License Study Guide Needed

    Are you sure about that? I found the E-510 changed the ISO in auto mode when in P or A mode but not M or S.

  7. Re: Went to Duxford Yesterday - some big birds

    I've been wanting to go down to Duxford for a while as I'd love to see an SR-71 in the flesh however I did wonder if it was worth waiting until I picked up the 7-14mm - interesting to see you think...
  8. Re: Amazing, but at what cost?

    If it's Park cameras then it's not a reliable price - they put a price against most preorder items despite having no real idea how much it's goig to cost.

    Re: Wrotniak E510 Live View Update

    There's an error regarding the E-330, the liveview boost feature is not new to the E-510 as the E-330 did have it. My only thought as to why it's not enabled by default is that on the E-330 it...

    Re: Camera to hard disk connection

    Glad to have helped, try out your main dock first and see if you're happy with the way it works with the camera hooked in - it's a little clumsy without a touch screen but it works well, you just...

    Re: A Dilemma

    To be honest the only time I find the dimmer viewfinder in the E-330/L1 to be noticeable is when I've switched from another Olympus SLR or other company's model. In day to day shooting it doesn't...

    Re: Camera to hard disk connection

    The Archos is my solution - my post above was simply to demonstrate the Olympus cameras use a standard mass storage device driver. Additionally, although the Archos only Archos has a laptop drive...

    Not always, a lot of software is only supported on the MS operating system - a case in point would be Olympus which as far as I'm aware requires Windows to update the firmware on the camera. Even at...

    Re: Steves Digicams E-510 Review

    While I do find the E-510 liveview implementation a bit disappointing and didn't think I'd really use it that much (sticking to the E-330 for that purpose) I've just come back from a two week holiday...

    Finally managed to get a Bigma...

    I've been moaning for months about not being able to get a hold of a Bigma or the 135-400mm so I thought it only fair to post now that I've actually managed to get a hold of one.

    Re: Camera to hard disk connection

    It works fine with the E-1, E-330, L1, E-500 and E-510 - the latter being the camera I was using when on holiday. The E-510 supports both standard mass storage and PTP (or MTP which I think is the...

    Re: Camera to hard disk connection

    That's not the case at all - there have been external storage devices with USB host capability for a while now, it's one of the reasons I like Archos devices as I'm using mine(Archos 504) while away...

    Re: Got New 510 Back from repair !!!!!!!!!

    Nope, the E-330 screen is much better and it obviously supports liveview. I use the histogram now, initially I thought my E-510 was seriously knackered with metering when I was looking at shots I...

    Re: E-pro (E-P1) not enough resolution

    Actually I think there can be too many megapixels - just look at the noisy pixel stuffed sensors most point and shoot cameras are stuck with due to the megapixel race. Judging by some of the...

    Re: Scene modes on a Pro DSLR

    This is what I think - I've never had any problems accidentally changing the mode dial to a scene mode (I don't use the latter) on the E-500/510/330 and can't see a pro camera being any worse. It...

    Re: Aperture priority shooting with E510

    I would say 27,000 is a lower estimate, the same person managed nearly 80,000 on another E-300 - the E-510 might be able to do far more but as it's a new camera with no published rates we don't know....
