Default Olympus E-5 and 43 Codes

You may have seen this at DPR. Someone leaked the info on how to access shutter actuations and other hidden codes for the E-5 and 43 cameras. John Foster has combined it with his earlier info at Biofos:

PS: I really like the FS3 grid focus screen on the E-5 (it also fits the E-3 and E-30).

The grid does sound nice. As nice as the digital level is, something like that in front of your face that you don't have to look down to the bottom of the scene to see is easier to use.

I do like the grid. I tried the digital level but when I'm composing I like to do a 2-step process, the first step quickly if possible: check exposure and then concentrate on composition and at that point I prefer not to look around outside the FOV for the camera display info. I suspect that's the same for you.

If we ever get an end to sleet and snow driven by strong winds, I'm looking forward to using the E5 with the grid. The E5 is much more weather-resistant than I am...

Yeah, this was a good time of the year to send it off so you won't miss it nearly as much.

As Bob said in another post, it looks like we're in for some more of that freezing stuff tomorrow.

LOL. I don't have an E-5, but I can certainly empathize with your statement!!!! Almost anything is more weather-resistant than me, as most of you probably realize.

......and I should have sent my E-3 in for mirror cleaning and to have the LCD fixed. One of the screw stripped from the 'chincy' plastic, now I leave the LCD exposed because it 'parts' if attempting to lift it from the seat position.

I've now had 6-months to get it fixed, procrastination is a feature of retirement.

As for weather resistance, I'm in that same rec-league with Steven.
