Sometimes to use a machine, or something like
software, really well you have to get inside the
head of the person who created it. You need to
understand how they were trying to make things
work, not be given a third-hand version. Bizarre
instruction books ? ?pressing button ?floop?
activates floop mode? are not enough, especially
if you have little idea what floop is and what it
can do for you. The book that came with my OM-D is a prime example.

I'm certainly not trying to build any new hardware.
I'm glad you are curious because we need more of
that in society, but I'm even more glad that you
are not trying to build something new, cause we've got enough already.
But I suggest you adopt in this case an approach
that has served me well. Like most of us, I
started out using a typewriter. A manual
typewriter. I later moved to an electric
typewriter, but what is the common thread?
Simple. Although innately curious, I never knew
what made either the manual or electric
typewriter, and I didn't care. I could operate
it, not fast but I could type a letter,and that
made me happy. I know what I needed to know to
get the job done. and that was that. A friend
was one of the original designers of the
Heathkit computer, and he often said that
personal computers would never be a big success
until they could be operated as easily as a typewriter.
Likewise, I suggest you accept the fact that the
camera tells something to turn the focus ring to
get the photo sharp, and it does. It does it
amazingly well now that the systems are mature.
So I'm happy. Try this you'll like it.
