  • Replied in New EM-1 owner
    Hello John, have got S AF + MF selected as the focus option. Also have magnify and shading enabled, these kick in as soon as you fine tune the lens focus. Simplistic addition to your settings ...
  • The version 1.1 update for the 12 - 40mm seemed a little out of character compared to others I have done. It downloaded really quickly...then seemed to take an age before it wrote itself into the ...
  • Hello John, seem to recall you were not going to set any major preferences into the EM1 as you knew they would all be wiped out !! Sounds like you got sucked in and changed a few anyway...then had ...
  • Replied in WHY?!?!?!?!?!?
    Well, I succumbed to the Olympus marketing and bought the EM5 Mk2 after sitting on the fence for a while. I almost talked myself out of the purchase, but the 5 year warrenty with early ordering ...
  • Hello Larry, it is a yes from me. Have not done any tests on my E5 with respect to this, but my EM1 certainly needed it to be put in to sharpen images. Easily seen if you shoot a brick wall, then ...
  • Hello Peter, suddenly that 5 year warrenty for early adopters looks very worthwhile. Would be a tad disappointed if the dials were failing on a regular basis in view of the known issues with those ...
  • Hello Peter, ref your comment below:- If it's not there a potential cause of the problem is a failure of a control wheel which seems to be a relatively common fault in the E-M5II. I hope you mean ...
  • Had the same issue as Ambercool. Mirror flipped up, black image. Could not hear the shutter operating. Convinced myself it was shutter failed as a result, but tried all the usual. Cleaned lens and ...
  • Many thanks for this. I looked earlier in the week, and nothing there...but sure enough...it is there now !!. It is also there for Windows, which is great news. ORF's now open in Photoshop, but ...
  • Hello John, that is a steal !!! I am just going off to cry in a corner somewhere. Like you, I use S AF + MF and have magnification and peaking enabled. I also have a grid enabled on both ...
  • Both the 12 - 60 and the 50 - 200 will work very very well on the EM1. This camera was designed to work with lenses such as these. Sorry to hear that prices in Holland are so expensive.  i was a ...
  • Hello John, sometimes things are just meant to happen. Enjoy the new toy. Use 0 shutter shock and disable the flicker reduction feature when using 4/3rds lenses. An early tip from this forum as it ...
  • Hello John, as you already know, completely different beast. Strange noise with the stabilisation, evf will surprise you, and so many customising options. A real challenge to use with gloves ...
  • Hello John, welcome to the clan ! You will love it...like the rest of us who own it. I was a bit of a late starter with the EM1 having bought a couple of E5's. It has taken me a while to fully ...
  • Believe the art filters apply to jpeg's only and that the raw remains as shot ? Try shooting raw and jpeg and check to see if this is the case.
  • Thanks to all for the replies and also for the link. My reason for asking the question was due to the high cost new, and high sale prices on ebay of the MMF3. The other adaptors are considerably ...
  • Created discussions 4/3rds Adaptor use on EM1
    I am aware that the MMF3 adaptor is the weatherproof 4/3rds to micro 4/3rds adaptor, but how is compatability with the MMF1 and MMF2 adaptors on the EM1 ? Do these adaptors have the same strength, ...
  • Have enjoyed reading this post, and can see certain similarities to my circumstances....only I would put myself more in the fanboy catagory as have stuck with the brand regardless. Started out ...
  • Hello Dan, time lapse mode will do what you are looking for I believe. Normally you would set the camera up in manual in time lapse, so that accounts for exposure. You specify the number of frames ...
  • Hello Martin, Re the firmware update, did it wipe all your settings from memory...or have they remained intact this time ?
