Couple of odd issue with my epl 5, user error or camera issue? (hoping to hear it is my fault)
Feb 21, 2013

Hi there, i have my epl 5 for close to a week and have really been enjoying it. Definately a learning curve with the menu, but trying to figure it all out. Tonight i had a couple of weird issues and am not sure if this is normal, or my error. I was playing around , and had it in A mode in what i consider a farily well lit mode, and twice hit the shutter and it took a few seconds to take the pic, almost like i had a long exposure on, which i didnt. I actually thought the camera was failing by the sound. Then i put it into S mode, and took a some pics, and 3 times  the pic showed up in quick review, but when i went to look it later it was only a black picture. I am very confused and wondering if i may have hit something or done something wrong. Any pointers would be appreciated. So far i am loving it, especially outdoors, and was wanting to use it more inside and practice...thank so much
