Default manual lenses

Hi there
Can anyone advise me on how to use or if it is possible to use a non electronic lens on a Olympus E-450?
I am keen to bring the camera down to full manual with no electronic overides as i want the camera to take a shot when i want not when it wants.
I have heard that you can fit manual lenses with adapters with excellent results.

I quote... "as i want the camera to take a shot when i want not when it wants"

Short of the self timer taking over- when the camera takes a shot is down to you- not any given lens... manual or otherwise..!

You can use older manual focus/manual aperture type lenses on most DSLR's with the appropriate adapter- but of course, the exposure and focus/depth of field will be entirely up to you.
