Olympus OM 10 camera

My camera is over 20 years old ! I lost my grip on the camera and my finger pushed what I think you would call the focus screen or the diaphram.
Anyway the screen was loose and I took the slack out of it an you would never know by looking at it that any thing happened.BUT now im having
shutter speed problems. Can you advise me on how to fix this problem ? I"ve been quoted over $200.00.

Olympus om 30 manual

The OM-30 has focusing system limitations. Most of the time, you can use the LED in the viewfinder to help you focus an image. If the lens you attach has a maximum aperture of F4 or smaller, (F5.6, etc) you set this switch to F4, then focus the lens manually using the prism gridlines visible in the viewfinder.

In short, just set the F4/F2 switch to whichever is the closest to the maximum aperture of the lens you are using. With an F1.8 lens, for example, you would use the F2 setting. For a lens with a maximum aperture of F3.5, you would use the F4 switch setting.

Clean prism

Depends where the dirt is, often it is trapped between the focusing screen and the prism. You can drop out the focusing screen using the tang on screen holding frame, remove the screen and blow the exposed face of the prism with an air puffer, or better still, use a camera vacuum to do this. More often than not, this will clean any large particles. If the dirt is anywhere else (unlikely) then you are looking at a prism removal. Not easy!

Will the olympus sigma 80-200 lens fit on the E-620 camera?

If it's a Four-Thirds mount lens then yes, no problem.

But otherwise if it's for the 35mm OM mount then not without an OM to Four-Thirds adapter. They're cheap and widely available directly from Chinese suppliers on eBay and they do exactly the same thing as the ridiculously expensive OM original item. You will need to manually focus with the aperture wide open and then remember to stop down to the desired aperture before shooting.

As long as you check suppliers' feedback first, then you should be OK; I've bought from such suppliers for years and have had fewer problems than buying products in my own country. I've used a variety of suppliers but most often return to Phoebe-G and receive my items in about a week to ten days, but goods have occasionally taken as few as three days to arrive in London.

My Minolta Z6 used to take clear pictures. Suddenly almost every image became is blurry. I then stored for about a year, now I have cleaned the lense to no avail. Focus l through lcd screen is also now...

I think you may be doing what I have ben doing. The auto focus beam I think emits from the small sender between the hand grip and the lense portion of the camera, ( Bad Design) When gripping the camera my fingers sometimes block the sender and causes it to be blurry as in not focused. .Try to keep your fingers from going in between the grip and lens and I think it will work for you.Let me know if this helps. I am so glad I found this out because this camera takes nice pictures.

Olympus om-2 cvamera lenses

You are able to use your old OM lenses with a new Olympus digital SLR camera. You will need to purchase an MF-OM 1 lens adapter to be able to connect these lenses to the digital SLR camera. Also when using these lenses you will only be able to use the camera in manual focus mode as these lenses are not capable to shhot with an auto focus mode.

You can use the lens from your old OM camera on the EVOLT E-410. You would need to purchase an MF-OM-1 adapter to make those lenses fit the new digital SLR camera. Also when using those lenses the camera would need to be used in Manual mode as there is no auto focus capability when using the old OM lenses.

Focusing distance in macro mode

On a D-565 camera, The Macro Mode operating range is 8 inches to 20 inches. This means the camera must be between 8 inches and 20 inches away from the subject for a picture to be in focus.
