Lightning shots with the OMD-EM1
Jun 22, 2014

I recently purchased the OMD-EM1 with a 12-40 2.8 Pro lens. Last night tried to shoot lightning shots set at 5.6 on bulb (open 10-20-30 sec) using an electronic cable release focus manual without much success. Even though there was much lightning (Florida) nothing appeared. I have been a long time Canon user with many successful lightning shots...any thoughts as to what I am doing wrong with the EM1?
Also when you place lens/camera in manual focus mode seems almost impossible to focus using EVF as this actually possible???

Thank you.
