    Yes, when the dealer was showing me the opening they simply turned it and the only time I used the "lever" is to lock it.

    Well, that's good. I thought I had broken mine already! I am going to try the movie thing out today. My daughter is playing Millie in "Thoroughly Modern Millie" and I will see how it does at dress rehearsal. Thanks Terry

    Does anyone have any tips on using the "movie mode". I want to try it today inside a theater. Thanks. -Durr

    Re: Having fun with the E-P1

    I am have been having a ton of fun with the E-P1, especially with the Panasonic lenses 45-200 and 7-14. Without testing I find the Panny lenses seem to auto focus a bit faster the the Olympus KIT and the 17mm.

    My own feeling is the AF is a bit of a tempest in a tea pot, it is early days and I am sure Olympus is busy on the next rev of the camera and firmware, etc.

    Using the 17mm Olympus lens with the OVF in mode 3 has some advantages and I have been using this as sort of zone focusing method. Once you get used to it - mode 3 can be very quick.

    From the weekend at the local version of Alice In the Park.

    Terry C, Any samples taken with the 17mm that you can point to? TIA.

    Terry,

    Can you explain what you mean by "mode 3"? Is this an autofocus mode or something?

    Greetings Mike,

    Mode 3 ties the AEL-AEF button to autofocus the camera and the shutter button is exclusively for exposure and shooting the picture (very little shutter lag). Once you press the button focus locks and you can shoot away - so most everything in the depth of field zone of the original focus lock will stay in relative focus (depending on F Stop, etc) until you press the AEL-AEF button again.

    Give it try - takes getting used to.

    Best regards. Terry.

    Re: Having fun with the E-P1

    Thanks Terry. I have been using the "mode 3" that you are referring too as my standard setup for the past few days. I just wanted to make sure you weren't referring to a different mode 3, as I didn't realize that separating AF from exposure lock would speed up the AF capability.

    It makes sense. I use mode 3, and center point focusing. I pick something to focus on, then point at a highlight and lock exposure, then recompose to shoot.

    The only problem with this method is shooting moving subjects.

    That's why I wish Olympus had 2-3 custom settings on the top dial, where we could store our settings, and the quickly shift to a different setup.

    Certainly agree. The other thing I have done is made sure that release priority is on. So even if the E-P1 hasn't quite figured out the AF I can get a shot or two - most of the time (famous last words) the images are OK.

    Best regards, Terry.

    Sadly I've been working hard and hadn't have the chance to the take the E-P1 for a real test drive (if the weather is right I'll be taking it into a small trip this weekend). For now here are just a couple of experimental self portraits and a shot of my wife:

    Thanks a bunch, Terry! They look good. My sample (17/2.8) is on its way now.

    BTW, that 45-200 shots at 200mm (from your earlier set) are fabulous!

    Vivek,

    Thank you. Question for you - in another post you mentioned the importance of the M adapter being used relative to image quality, such CA, etc. Can you elaborate, I have the Novoflex adapter which they replaced - the new(er) version allows a lens change without taking the adapter off the camera and corrects a (there words) machining error. At the time of purchase (late October early November) it was the only adapter available locally. It seems to work but I have not done any minute testing, etc.

    TIA, Best regards, Terry.

    Re: Having fun with the E-P1

    Hi Terry, I think the Novoflex adapter also should have proper paint but the Cameraquest/RayQual has an edge over the others in that they have a little plastic ring in the rear (to protect the lens contact pins in the camera). This also acts as an additional (stray) light proofing element. Quite an ingenious design. The reason why I keep claiming this is the best M adapter there is.

    Thanks Vivek! I just might have to order a RayQual.

    Thanks Diane. I don't know the name of that particular plant, but the strong texture of the leaves makes it a good subject for monochrome rendition. I used SEP for B&W conversion and a custom split tone curve that yields warm mid tones and neutral highlights.

    That's interesting. I have those same curves saved and have used (but not recently)--as well as Ken Lee's (and his duotones). I'll have to go back and revisit.

    I really like the first Phaeton hood ornament with the hexanon 57.

    I"m partial to the second one. It has a yin/yang thing going on with the lighting.

    Hmmm... You're right, didn't 'see' that until you pointed it out! I also didn't realize when taking the photos that the DOF was less than 1". Oh well, live and learn...
