Shutter shock

That could be why my pictures weren’t sharp with my Canon FD adapter on my old camera.

But that doesn’t explain why the viewfinder got sharper pictures. Article said something about live view, operating differently.

But even with a tripod, the pictures weren’t very sharp. Can’t use the viewfinder when taking a nude picture of myself.

Tiffen 58mm UV Protection Filter

What does it do to contrast? See below.

Tiffen UV filter
No UV filter

Is that the contrast, or is the one with the filter brighter? Turning the flash down doesn’t help much, or at least I don’t think it does, did that yesterday.

The Tiffen UV filter was about $6, so I won’t be sending it back. It’s better then nothing. You can increase the contrast in AfterShot Pro.

The Olympus M. 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 R is a good lens, probably better outside, doesn’t always want to focus inside. The Tiffen UV filter is good enough for $6, if you want to spend $20+ for one, be my guest. I did once. But I’m to cheap to do so again. Is Hoya better?

Fuck, I should of bought the Amazon, for the same price. I have one somewhere, the reviews say it doesn’t affect the image quality. What lens is it on? Probably one of the manual ones, I don’t use.

Hoya isn’t cheap, so it’s probably better.

I forgot Amazon made em. Didn’t own any Tiffen ones though.

You might not need a UV filter. Just search Google for something related to UV filters. Apparently digital cameras already filter UV.

But it sounds like it should make the image darker, not brighter. So decrease the ISO? Or change the exposure? Changing the exposure on the RAW image, makes it mostly match the RAW image without the UV filter. Use Perfectly Clear, and it might match the JPG of the no UV filter. You need more contrast to match the JPG, even the no UV filter RAW doesn’t match the JPG.

Might just use my camera in manual mode

Sucks you can’t assign the mode dial to something else.

Just set the shutter to 160 or more, and the flash to TTL, and remove the UV filter, it kills the contrast, at least on the dog.

If you aren’t lazy, you can edit all your pictures.

You can buy a OM-D E-M10 with a cracked screen for $125 or so, think it was $125. It’s cracked in the bottom corners.

Nobody seems to sell the mode dial for the OM-D E-M10, I’d have to request it from Olympus. If any part on the camera is busted, then it won’t fix it.

On another note, early this morning or yesterday, I found more corrupt pictures on my gallery. Also found a public_html folder in the public_html folder. No idea why. Looks like Piwigo is in it, just not all of it. Just deleted it. The non corrupt images could of existed in there.

If you point the flash up, you’ll need manual mode on the flash. To increase the power.

If I can’t fix my OM-D E-M10

It’ll be the last Olympus camera I buy. I won’t pay to get it fixed.

Might of been my fault though, might of pressed on it with something when standing up. They shouldn’t use adhesive, make it out of metal, and weld it on. Problem solved, maybe.

Olympus M. 40-150mm F4.0-5.6 R

Is it a good lens? Barely used it, so I don’t know. Manual mode is a pain, it’s stuck on that, the dial fell off. I did move it from aperture to manual mode somehow, can’t move it anymore.

Double sided tape might be safer then glue, apparently glue can get in the body.

It has bokeh if you get close enough, get to close, and it won’t focus.

Nice blue dot

I thought that was only supposed to happen at slower shutter speeds?

If you look at the RAW in AfterShot Pro, you can’t see the blue dot, if you zoom in. I think AfterShot Pro gets rid of it. Just export it, and it won’t have it.

Got to use the lame pixel mapping function in the menu.

Lame because I have to do it. Apparently some cameras you have to send to the manufacture to get it done. If it worked, I’ll only buy Olympus cameras. If it didn’t work, I might eventually buy a Panasonic camera. Do they have a pixel mapping function?

Looks like it fixed it. Or I didn’t take enough pictures. Also was in a different room. Messed up on the focus on most of the pictures I took. Or messed up the bokeh.

That’s the best picture I took. There’s something brown on or above her nose. Was that the flash? Or has she been sticking her nose in poop?

I’ll be keeping my YI lens, it’s the only auto focus made for my camera lens that is f1.8. I have a cheap manual Chinese lens, but it probably isn’t as sharp. Manual focus is a pain. At least with Canon FD lenses it is.

Another dark picture on my phone, not on my monitor. Google wants to “fix” the lightning, all it does is ruin the picture, perfectly clear in AfterShot Pro would probably work better. But it doesn’t need anything on my monitor. Increasing the brightness on my phone could help too.


You must like a ton of bokeh if you need or want f1.8. Even at f5.6, there’s bokeh, just more of the dog is in focus.

You might be able to get less bokeh, if you back it up. You don’t need a lens more then f2.8, f2.8 is the cheap Sigma lenses, well more then my used YI lens.

That should be f5.6, unless my memory failed, to lazy to import it in AfterShot Pro to see, my default image viewer doesn’t say the aperture.

Probably f1.8.
