Make sure the film you are using is marked "DX". If the film you are using is not marked ""DX"" refer to page Set the film speed dial to.

Wind the film and make sure the sprocket teeth catch both the upper and lower film perforations. The film check window in the camera back will allow you to check the type of film loaded in the camera. In this mode, anyone can enjoy taking pictures with ease, even in difficult lighting conditions such as backlight. How to Take Programmed Automatic Exposure Pictures with ESP Metering. The mark will appear in the finder when ESP metering is adjusting the exposure.

This mode a; you to respond creatively to the photo situation l free selection the lens aperture, shutter speed and exposure compensation settings. If you see an overexposure warning signal the number "" blinksset the aperture to a larger number.

Lift up the outer collar and rotate until the desired ISO speed appears in the window. If the film speed dial exposure compensation dial cannot be turned to the ISO number of the film used set it once at an intermediate value then repeat steps 2 to 3 until the desired ISO number is set. Press the shutter release to start the self-timer. The shutter will fire in 12 seconds. Wind the film for the next shot. The self-timer lever will automatically return to its original position.

If you continue to use the self-timer, wind the film in several short strokes, and it will remain activated. Take note that shutter will fire even if you return the self-timer lever to its original position while it is running. If you want to improve. The following pages will provide detailed technical information on the OM PROGRAM to help you create more sophisticated photographs.

SELECTING THE METERING MODE A Choice of Two Metering Modes. This mode can be selected for general use at all times. Depending on the light distribution in the composition metering is carried out as follows:. In this case the ESP Metering symbol doss not appear. This mode should be selected when you do not warn to leave everything up to the camera, but prefer to set the exposure according to your own experience, 'feel' and creative requirements.

In this mode the camera decides the exposure by taking an average center-weighted of the brightness of the overall composition, without analyzing light distribution in different parts of the composition. Generally, a photograph includes objects with different levels of brightness. Center-weighted averaged light metering is an excellent method to; the majority of ordinary subjects. It averages the light intensity in a picture frame to determine exposure. With backlighting and other types of illumination, however, this metering method may not provide correct exposure because the light level often differs between the subjects and backgrounds.

The new ESP metering system has been specifically developed for the OM40 PROGRAM to simplify exposure in these difficult lighting conditions. As soon as you fire the shutter, the camera will measure the light intensity in both the center of the frame and outer area separately. By simply depressing the shutter release, you can produce a photograph in which the subject will appear as you see it with your eyes.

This is the direct, center-weighted, averaged light metering system which Olympus pioneered in the original model OM It measures the brightness of the subject as the light registers on the film during the actual exposure. In flash photography with an Olympus T-Series flash, this "OTF" Light Metering method will also fully control the flash exposure, thereby eliminating any need for complicated guide number exposure calculations.

You can work with all available apertures of your lens and use sophisticated techniques such as bounce flash and multi flash in a fully automatic mode. It has also solved difficult exposure problems with macrophotography. SELECTING THE METERING MODE How to use ESP Metering. ESP Metering is the mode to set for general use. In this mode, you don't have to worry about how the picture will turn out. All you need do is press the shutter release.

Even in tricky situations such as sharp backlighting, the camera responds flexibly to give you correctly exposed shots. This mode assures trouble-free shooting even with the kind of pictures that often turned out as failures because the exposure was wrong. In fact, ESP Metering greatly increases the range of auto exposure technology. The following examples should provide a useful reference. With center-weighted average metering, this kind of situation tends to leave the subject's face pitch black.

But ESP Metering assures even the fine shades of the subject's expression are faithfully conveyed. For the best results, try to keep the main subject fairly near the center of the composition. Check for the ESP Metering symbol in the viewfinder.

If a part of the picture frame is extremely bright, the subject is underexposed under the influence of a strong light on the table in the case of center weighted, averaged metering. In the same picture taken with the ESP metering, even the expression of her face is clearly seen.

In center-weighted, averaged light metering, the subject appears slightly overexposed under the influence of a dark surrounding. In ESP metering mode, however, it is correctly exposed. In this case too, you will get the best results by keeping the main subject close to the center of the compositions. In center-weighted, averaged light metering, the subject appears completely dark; in ESP metering mode, you will see even her face clearly.
