  • E-3 cutaway drawing?

    Anyone know of a link to a cutaway of an E-3? I'm particularly interested in how the camera strap lugs join on to the chassis. I'm a great fan of the Y-strap, which only uses one lug. Now, on the E-510/520 I have no concerns about putting the weight of the camera and lens through one lug, but the E-3 is heavier, so I want to know if it's likely to take the load.

    Stephen, why not formally ask Olympus if the E-3 strap lugs are suitable; that way if it all goes horribly wrong, you might just have some come back.
    Best Regards

      Buy me an E3, and i'll make one for you? :P

      There is a picture on this page of a dismantled one, and apparently in the video there is a cross section

            I just got the following response from Olympus Tech Support:-

            "Dear Stephen,
            As this scenario is not endorsed by the user manual, neither can we at technical support.
            Thank you for your e-mail."

            So now you know. Don't use your camera in any way which is not mentioned in the manual. Helpful!

              It probably says somewhere in the user manual that you shouldn't take pictures with it either!
