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.

Some cameras will shoot RAW + JPEG, and save a copy of each in a different directory on the card.

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.
