I was just having a little whine and a wallow in self pity.....
Thanks Ziggy and Steven.

I'll have to experiment some more it seems. I tried several setting. the A of course seeing I'm the one choosing the F stops. I use matrix for the focusing with the center spot (I miss the little red spot and beep) and 1 or 200 ISO. and I did have the spot focussing on, inadvertantly??? For some reason one time I checked I was at ISO 800 and I know I didn't choose that.

I've been taking some shots while I've been sitting here. Like you say Ziggy even with the split screen it's hard to get a good fix at times. But getting better results now.

How did we do it in the old OM days..

I hope you also had a little wine later to finish off the evening.

As for the OM days. If you still have one, pull the camera out and look through the viewfinder. You'll be amazed as to how large it is in comparison.

Still hanging on to my early model OM2, too many memories and not much worth to get rid of it. I remember closing on a subject in auto taking the reading I liked then backing off and going to manual. Saved on a light meter...
But the auto was great for those quick shots while hiking.
