Question about Sigma APO 50-500mm F4-6.3 EX DG/HSM Lens

Open Question

Excessive hunting with Olympus E510

Hi,

I've tried using my recently acquired used bigma with my E510 as well as my brother's and it is extremely difficult to focus on moving objects (e.g. flying birds) even in bright light. By comparison, my brother's Nikon mount bigma locks focus easily with his D40X under the same circumstances.

Rgds,

Dexter

SOURCE: trouble focusing with sigma 70-300 DL macro super lens

It will not focus on anything closer than 5 feet.

(From Sigma lens literature)
Capable of macro photography, this lens has a 1:2 maximum close-up magnification at the 300 mm focal length. It's the ideal high performance lens for portraits, sports photography, nature photography, and other types of photography that frequently use the telephoto range. It also has a switch for changeover to macro photography at focal lengths between 200mm and 300mm with a maximum close-up magnification from 1:2.9 to 1:2. The minimum focusing distance is 1.5m / 59 in. at all zoom settings.

I have an olympus e510.when i take pics inside or in darker areas the flash goes off alot.how can i fix this


That's because you are using auto focus. That system needs light to actually focus. When it's lacking enough light it uses the build in flash to create enough contrast to focus the objective.
Solutions :
- change to manual focus (mf)
- mount a external flash: then a different method to focus is used
- use a small pocket lamp (the light it produces fades away in the flash)

How to use olympus e520 in less light


The first answer is from some one who obviously is not familiar with Olympus (and many other brands of DSLRs) or he would know that many lenses do not have manual focus scales to use. Olympus Standard Grade lenses do not include a focusing distance scale.

The more important issues for you are determining -
1) Are you trying to use "Live View" to focus?
If so you are using a less sensitive auto focus mode. One of the benefits of using a DSLR is that it can use more sensitive auto-focus systems than Point

Olympus E510, Flash Flicker


If you are in a low lit area with the camera dial set to Auto the flash will do a strobing type of flash trying to help allow more light into the scene. This is called the AF illuminator function. To just go ahead and take the image, put the camera dial to P (program Auto) go to Menu - go to Wrench 1 tab - then right arrow over and then down arrow to AF Illum - right arrow and turn this function from On to Off and then take the image in the P mode setting. No flash flicker should occur.

I have an E410 DSLR and am trying to use a Sandisk Extreme IV CF card of 4GB. I get message stating card full until I try to format it and then get a card error. Can you help ?


Currently Olympus has successfully tested Sandisk Extreme 3 up to 8gb without any card error messages. It sounds as if it is a card compatibility issue. Try to exchange to an Extreme 3 and you should be able to use that without any issues.
