    I need the function for wildlife photography, the the length of usb cable if available needs to be 5 or 10 metres second problem would be battery life of laptop or PDA, looks like my new E-510 is redundant already, good job I kept my E-10 will have to buy 300mm lens adaptor if I can find one, thanks blakey

You may need to have the camera plugged into the computer and operated by the software that came with it. It might have a feature there called intervalometer.

    Like I say, check the camera software when the camera is plugged into the usb. If there is a cable release accessory available, sometimes these are electronic and have this feature built into them.

Panorama Feature on Olympus Stylus 840

Forget the in-pano function and use a free stitching program off the internet. When shooting panoramas, you need to be in aperature priority or manual mode so as to keep the exposure consistant, especially going into the sun or away from it in your pictures. Although this is good practice, it is not needed for a few stitch programs as they average out all the exposures and make the entire pic uniform. This works pretty good in all but the most demanding exposure swings.

Rm-1 Olympus remote. I have 2 of them and can not get them to work with my Olympus E510. New Batteries, tried to set frequency. No luck. Any advise?

Starting on page 45 of the user manual explains how to use your RM-1 remote control. You have to set up the camera in remote control mode in order to fire the RM-1.

Olympus E510, Flash Flicker

If you are in a low lit area with the camera dial set to Auto the flash will do a strobing type of flash trying to help allow more light into the scene. This is called the AF illuminator function. To just go ahead and take the image, put the camera dial to P (program Auto) go to Menu - go to Wrench 1 tab - then right arrow over and then down arrow to AF Illum - right arrow and turn this function from On to Off and then take the image in the P mode setting. No flash flicker should occur.

Could I use my Canon bounce flash (550EX) with this Olympus Digital camera?

That's not possible because the hot shoe is not provided for the Canon hot shoe. You can change some wires in the Canon flasunit to let it think is an Olympus model ;)
