Does anyone may know why my Olympus E330 stopped saving pictures? All other functions appear to be working like Focus, shutter speeds, but after taking picture the display only  shows Dust Reduction for a second and no pictures are save? By inserting another CF card with pictures on it, those  can be review. Thank you , Justino

I've a old dual core AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.2GHz based system with Win7 at the moment. It processes RAW files from my E-3 at an acceptable speed (I'm quite a patient person). I recently upgraded to an OM-D E-M1 and now desperately need something faster! It takes the poor old thing 45 seconds to process each file :-( My laptop running an Intel Pentium B950 at 2.1GHz takes 30 seconds to process the same RAW file. Looking on a cpu benchmark site the figures for these 1285 & 1718 are pretty much...

I've been using a GF1 for some time now both with legacy lenses and m4/3 lenses, but I want to move to a bigger body. I know the e-3 is an older body but I guess my thinking is the money that I save towards the body I can put into lenses. I was thinking of first picking up the 12-60mm lens to go with the e-3 and then afterwards maybe a prime 35 or 50mm. Any thoughts regarding this would be much appreciated. I'm open to hearing alternative options. Thanks!

I wanted to do wireless flash photography tonight with my OMD EM1 FL-LM2 flash and the FL 50R.Unfortunately, this did not go well. The communication with the flash was not consistently good. The flash sometimes flasht andt sometimes it didnt flash. Tried different settings with the same result. Sometimes  after the photo was taken the flash fired afterwards. Then with my E3 done the same. This combo worked consistently good, not a single failure. Does anyone recognize this problem? Would the...

I have $1500.00 to get new equipment but not sure how to spend... I have the following list of equipment. 1.) Fuji XPro-1 with 35mm lens 2.) Canon 70D with 18-135mm lens 3.) Olympus 12-40mm PRO lens (gave my EM5 to my son but kept this lens in case I wanted to get EM1) and 12-60mm lens I kept from my old E3. I shoot mainly street, low light and some sports. Do I get an XT-1, EM1 or another lens? I've read posts and reviews and still very undecided. Thanks B.C.

Currently I do have E-520 which mostly I use with Sigma 50-500 lense. I would like to get used with low mileage either E-3 or E-5. E-3 body I could get for ~ $300 E-5 would be ~800 or more. Any suggestion? reasons? Thanks in advance.

A close friend and fellow photographer invited me on a photo shoot here in the Colorado mountains. One of the things we plan on shooting are nighttime/ stars/ Milky Way images. I've never done this type of photography before and was hoping for some advice from experienced shooters. My main body is my Oly E30 and I plan on using my 14-54mm 2.8 lens ( on my tripod). I also have the 18-180mm/ 70-300mm/ Bigma lenses as well. Just curious what settings to use, and any other advice as well. Thanks...
