In low light and low contrast situations, the camera does have difficulty in taking pics in normal mode. press the [---] button and change to center focus and you also may want to increase the iso up to 200 or even 400

I have had trouble with this and what I found is I was pushing on the white balance button at the time I was taking the photo. Try making sure your finger is not touching anything else.

How do you synchronize a non olympus flash unit to an olympus e 500


Install flash on hot shoe and use shutter speed on camera set to no faster than 1/125. Read the owners manul for flash AND camera. Be careful, some trigger voltages may be higher than what your cdamera can handle and may ruin internal flash usage, if not camera itself. better to use a Wein Safesynch hot shoe. This mounts ion hotshoe of camera and flash is attached to this.

Your shutter is staying open too long. Do you have it set on "bulb" or "time exposure" or something like that? It doesn't happen on flash pics because the flash is so short, it freezes the action.

E-volt 500 Olympus camera will not work well on most settings.


Turn the camera mode dial to P - press Menu button - camera 1 tab is highlighted - right arrow over to Card Setup - down arrow to custom reset setting - right arrow to reset and press Ok - highlight Yes and press Ok. The camera should be back in factory defaults.

Olympus E-500 flash smelling like burnt plastic


You should contact Olympus about this.

Olympus have had a recall on some older 35mm film cameras for problems with the flash circuit.

Please see -
