I have an Olympus e410 and had it about just over a year and it has been a brilliant little camera until now. i wanted to use the camera but it now wont focus properly. I can focus on long objects and close objects but sometimes it take forever to focus and wont focus at all. Please not that on close objects im not trying to get withing 1metre of the object. I have tried two different lense but have had the same problem. Can anyone help me as i dont have the money to buy a new camera. Thanks

SOURCE: Olympus E410 viewfinder problem

As far as I am aware, you can use the viewfinder OR the live view, but not both at the same time.

This is because a mirror has to flip up out of the way to reveal the sensor for the live view to work, and the mirror needs to be in the down position to reflect the image into the viewfinder.

Switch between the two modes and double-check if there is a problem.

Also try removing the lens from the camera and checking the position of the mirror. It could be that it has got stuck in the up osition.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: e410 will not focus when

That behaviour sounds quite normal to me, the focus system is a 3 point phase detect ttl system, and when looking at a "flat" surface with no edges there is sometimes no phase to detect. Are you saying it is behaving differently to how it used to behave? In that case reset to factory settings in the menu and if you think it is still wrong maybe your focus system has lost sensitivity, in which case it will have to be repaired by a professional.
Just one thing make sure the camera is clean inside, (DONT touch the sensor).
regards
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Cant upload photos


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Using the lens


As long as the lens mount is compatible with the Olympus e410, you can use this lens.

It will only be limited by what features are supported through the camera body - I suspect that you will have to do everything manually.

Good luck.
