  • HELP! Rule of thirds eyepiece

    Is there an eyepiece with the rule of thirds marked on it for the E5? I don't use live view and would like to know if anyone has found a way to show the lines through the view finder? Thanks
    Conor.
    Ever wondered what happens the dark when the light is switched on?

    I find it easy enough to guess, roughly, and less distracting when there's less clutter in the viewfinder. Even the histogram, which is essential, is quite frankly a hindrance to composition, but sorry, I don't know the answer to your question.

      As I understand, Olympus designed the 11 focus points for the E-3 and E-5 to be in the most used positions for photographs. See this article from Imaging Resource for more detail.

      The corners of the 9 central focus points are pretty close to the intersection lines for the rule of thirds, and I use them for composition.

      There is also a replacement focus screen for the E-3 and E-5 with the rule of thirds lines, the FS-3. Unfortunately, you have to have this one installed by the Olympus service folks.

        I bet that's not cheap, even if they still do it for legacy models!
