  • I love the stills wifi capabilities on my E-M1 and TG-3… but I can't even — so far — start/stop a video with them. It would be far-fetched to expect a memory card to bring video controls to ...
  • I bought an Oly TG-3 at London Drugs last month, then got word from Oly that they were dropping the price to $299.99. I took my receipt back and got a price match, then turned around and bought an ...
  • Replied in I say "No"
    But that's just me. If your wife has diamonds and gets to use the camera, then YES. I noticed a scratch on my 1-month old TG-3 screen — and I suspect a diamond. My E-330 got a lot of use over 5-6 ...
  • I bought my E-M1 at Christmas 2013 from London Drugs in Chilliwack, BC, Canada and the intermittent back dial failure issue came up a few months later. 7 months after purchase, I take it back to ...
  • Replied in Indoor video
    I too have some concerns on the video — especially the audio, which captures the auto focus adjustments, I believe. I can't find a way to go MF. Much to enjoy about the camera, though. Indoors with ...
  • Replied in A bit OT but...
    Do the newest Panny cameras allow wifi control when shooting video — even just on/off? I wish the Oly cameras would allow this.
  • The very useful Blackrapid strap screws into the tripod thread, which would take away your worries.
  • My E-M1 is in for a back dial (warranty) replacement. I'm wondering if the lever is part of the same circuit board. If you aren't getting one-for-one-click adjustments through your back dial, have ...
  • Replied in Good companions
    The 120mm equiv length and the flip up screen of the E-M1 allow you to shoot candidly from a stepped-back distance. People are often unaware of what you are doing, so are seen in their natural state. ...
  • Replied in Ontario
    I take it that you like it? LOL! The fixed 60mm makes it a bit awkward for many purposes… but when it's in the zone, it is amazing. For me, hockey shots of the goal mouth from the side boards is ...
  • I agree, Adam. I was almost wetting myself with joy when I got my E-PL5 and saw the scads of features Oly had packed into that little package. One feature that I'd never needed before came in very ...
  • Replied in Good buy, Bill
    And don't worry about the lens rattle when the power is off or you're in manual focus mode. It's a built-in 'feature.'
  • I've been loving my E-PL5… but wifi would be nice — and I'm sure the 7 will have it.
  • Replied in Manometer
    Interesting, David. If — as you suggest — it's just GPS settings affecting the manometer readings… what about when the camera is 6 feet under water at a given GPS location? I'll be trying this at ...
  • Replied in Live Composite
    Jim, sorry… I may have missed this: what is live composite?
  • I took it on my trip to the east coast of Canada but I ended up only using it a few times. The 12-40 got most use, by far. 40-150 as well. So, I'd probably not recommend it as a travel lens, due to ...
  • I haven't had that problem yet… but perhaps Olympus included that feature as a shout-out to E-1 owners. That was a big problem for the E-1. Barry
  • For me, your man-on-the-rope shot is a great example of the clear and colourful photos you can get out of this "toy" camera. Excellent! I just got back from a trip to the east coast of Canada. I ...
  • Replied in Manometer
    I haven't checked mine at other known locations — but I just looked up Chilliwack BC Canada and the elevation is 10 meters above sea level. My TG-3 says 10M. You can calibrate yours under the ...
  • I don't care about importing video via wifi — but being able to simply start and stop recording would be a HUGE advantage for remote control situations. Focus adjust — and power zoom (on the few ...
