Re: No photo info

Make sure you are on the 'info' setting when trying to view the information. You can either be in zoom mode where pushing up and down arrows will move image, or you can be in info mode where the arrows will scroll through settings, histogram, highlights, etc.

I need to know how to have the date stamp print on the pics I take. Very important that I have every pic date stamped. How dod I do it. Also, I have the M580 digital camera but I didn't see a choice...

Unfortunately your camera does not have the feature to have the date stamp visible on the pictures. It does, however, save the date and time information on every photo in EXIF data. Every photo taken with this camera (and most all digital cameras) contain hidden EXIF data containing the exact date and time the photo was taken as well as other information such as aperture, shutter speed, flash mode, etc. To view this data you can look at the properties of the photo using a photo program or even windows.

M42 adaptor

Quite right too. When the M42 adaptor is fitted there is absolutely no exchange of information between the lens and the body: M42 lenses pre-date all of those later developments. Your camera will also be unable to stop down the lens automatically when taking the picture, most M42 lenses don't even stop down automatically when connected to an M42 body.

You need to do things the old-fashioned way. Your camera needs to be set to meter manually, shutter priority mode may also be used. In manual mode you focus the lens as normal with the aperture ring set to the lowest aperture number (i.e.aperture is wide open).
You then make sure that the lens in in manual mode as well and stop down to whatever you want, if the image remains bright enough then you can adjust the precise focus using the hyperfocal principle if you like which takes advantage of the increased depth of field of a stopped down lens.
In manual mode, you then tell the camera what aperture you have set (read it from the lens barrel) and set the shutter speed using the camera's light meter to guide you. If using shutter priority mode then the camera will choose the shutter speed for you.
Check everything is set as you intend and press the shutter.

It all sounds long winded but is exactly how many of the world's greatest photos were taken and soon becomes second nature. You also learn far more about the relationship between aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings and will be able to talk about reciprocity like you know about it!

My Nikon D50 is suddenly underexposing the lower half of each photo. Does anyone know what is wrong?

Are these flash photos? If so, make sure you don't have the lens hood on. Also make sure the shutter speed is slower than the sync speed.

Otherwise, is this happening at a variety of shutter speeds? With fresh batteries?

External Flash

The aperature error is due to the fact that the lens in not a constant aperature design. The settings on the LCD are assuming you are at full wide angle setting. As this lens moves towards telephoto, the aperature changes about 2/3 of an f-stop due to the mechanical movement of the lens elements. So a manual setting of f4.0 at full telephoto will be more llike f5.0 in reality. It is too bad Epson could not make the mechanical aperature adjust to compensate, but every nice feature costs something. I have not had any issue with the shutter speed changing. One guess is that the camera has shutter speed/aperature combinations that it can't achieve due to mechanical limitations, so it chooses the available combination. Another is that it wasn't in manual mode, but rather aperature priority mode and the final adjustments changed the speed.

Saving photo info for pictures taken - possible?

This camera stores EXIF in similar standards of its competitors and can be viewed by most image software. However, there's some fields of proprietary design for each brand so it is better to use the original software bundled with the camera.

Blurry pictures

There is a well documented problem with the W1 (and its brother, the P100). If you are shooting in good light, you will have no problem. If you are shooting in low light or flash, you will encounter various degrees of blurred photos. Unlike most cameras, the W1 has only two f-stops (f2.8 and f5.2). So the camera must select one or the other (nothing in between). The firmware in the camera will try to select f5.2 as long as it can in low light. This results in a slow shutter speed. And with flash you usually end up with a shutter speed of 1/40th of a second. A slow shutter speed is the cause of the blurred photos. If you can hold the camera perfectly still under low light conditins (and flash) you will get good photos. If you use the cameras manual mode and manually select a faster shutter speed you will get good photos. It appears that Sony could fix the problem with a firmware change so that the camera made better use of the ISO settings along with the f-stop selections. However, they have not done so.
