Try setting your camera to macro mode (setting with the FLOWER) for close up photography, or portrait mode (setting with the PERSON).

If you have the manual then try looking up, Single Focus, Continuous Focus, and Single Focus Manual. You'll want it on the last setting. This will enable the manual focus ring. This is great if you want like a closeup picture (selective focus), or if you are doing macro work and want to make sure you are in focus. It also helps if you turn on your LIVEVIEW |( )| mode. You can pinpoint your focus in the viewfinder by rotating the focus ring while your are magnified. You may need to press the AEL* to get a an LCD preview.

*Using the default settings.

Konica lens converter to Olympus


They're easy to adapt to fit on a 4/3 mount body, but the lens will be totally manual and will not automatically communicate information about which lens aperture is in use to your camera. You will also not have the ability to automatically stop down the aperture when shooting, so you'll need to focus with the aperture ring set to the widest setting (allows in most light to make focussing easier) and then turn the aperture ring down to the correct setting for actual exposure.

In all, it's a bit of a chore, but does allow you to use your lens. Optical quality will not seem as good as you remember, contrast will be lower (unless you mask the rear of the lens to suit the smaller 4/3 sensor) and the lens will have the same angle of view as a long telephoto zoom in the 160-400mm range, so almost all shots will have camera shake unless you use the image stabilisation and/or a tripod. All of that may sound off-putting, but with care and awareness of the limitations of what you propose you'll still be able to achieve very good results. I use a commercially available adapter to use many of my old OM mount lenses on my E-510 with all the same caveats and have been pleased with the results.

If you Google "Konica to 4/3" you'll find further details, but to get you started click here for a link to someone who can supply ready made adapters (I have no personal experience of the supplier), but if you or anyone you know has basic workshop skills you can make them yourself using details available from the search term I suggested.

I hope that my reply has helped you to decide what to do next and would appreciate it if you would take a moment to rate my answer..

Clearing pictures from olympus D-510 zoom media card


The manual for your camera is here

On page 55 of the PDF file it is explained how to delete images selectively.

On page 125 it is shown how to erase all the images at once.

Attention, the page numbering of the PDF file and the manual itself are not the same. PDF-file page 55 is manual page 45.

Hope that helps

Cheers

How to use a manual zoom lens with Evolt 510


By manual zoom lens I am assuming you mean a film camera lens. If it is one of our OM 1 or 2 lenses they can be used on our Olympus digital SLR camera but you will need to purchase an MF-OM1 converter to be able to adapt those lenses to fit on our digital SLR camera. Then you will only be able to shoot using those lens in manual focus mode. Auto focus mode will not be available.

Olympus E-510 70-300zukio


The markings on the lens barrel are for macro mode purposes. When the zoom ring is set for 300mm that is the distance you are shooting at. It will zoom the barrel all the way out to 300mm if it needs to to help to obtain focus on the subject.

Hope this clears things up for you.
