Hi all, I recently purchased a used E5 from a well known online retailer. it was described as having slight signs of use, but the shutter count was what grabbed me at less than 700. I checked that when I received it and that was accurate. But the screen has some significant scratch marks, which were not in the description and honestly  I should have queried as soon as it arrived, but I was too excited to get out and start using it as was also jetting off on holiday imminently so I thought I...

Problem: In looking at a magnified review image on my camera, I want an idea of what print size will give me the same detail in the the portion of print magnified in the camera when it is part of a print of the whole file. Why this would be useful: If the sharpness of an image breaks down past a certain magnification on the review screen, it would indicate the maximum size of a sharp print. How I tried to roughly estimate this: I compared the same image on my cameras review screen and on my...

Is there an option to set the "Format" option under "Card Setup" to immediately go to  Yes rather than defaulting to No and then having to switch to Yes? Card Setup---All Erase--- Format----select Format---- defaults to No--- select Yes. I want the default Format selection to go to Yes and then hit OK. I have my E5 working that way. Thanks in advance. Peter in Canada.

Hi guys, I'm new to the wondrous dpreview forums, but I wanted to ask you pro's some questions, if that's ok... Background: Right, so I'm currently studying in my final year in England. I am going to Poland for a WW2 History trip from April 2nd - 5th and in July I'm going on a 1 month trip to Nepal, where I'll be trekking for 12 days and doing a variety of activities. I chose the NEX-7 for a camera, as it was a good raw spec advanced enthusiast cdc camera, I didn't want a DSLR, as in both...

I've recently switched from Olympus (E-30, E-510) to Pentax (K-3).  There is a "universal" preset designed to optimize: sharpness, saturation, noise reduction, color ect......... for the specific camera. Does Pentax have such a preset? Thanks,  Garret

I am currently having E510+12-60+14-42+50-200+70-300. I shoot photos when family and/or friends getting together either in the day time or evening, and when my sons have sports as hockey, soccer (indoor and outdoor) and other activities. I realized the limitation of E510 in low light and in sports. However due to it light weight and small size, I am still using it for all the events. I am now seriously thinking to replace it with a newer and capable camera: E30, E5, EM10 and EM1. Can you...

Hi I have the F3 with 5 lenses: the e-18-55 kit, the e-55-210, the e 1.8/50, the Sigma 35, and the Rokinon fisheye. I've also got the EVF. So I'm kind of uh, invested in the system a little ;)  I've never really been happy with the 18-55 kit lens, even though I use it the most because of its convenient focal range, or with the Sigma, which I actually never use. So I'm considering an upgraded lens in that wide-to-medium all-purpose  range. I'd say I'm much more interested in the wider end of...

i'm looking into a new camera and I'm torn between The Oly OMD EM10 (E1, or E5) and a Fuji X camera. From the sample images i'm seeing, the Olys have quite a bit of noise even at 100. Especially visible when looking at Blue sky. Is it true?

Trying to learn to set custom WB on E5.  I had my camera set on P and took a picture inside of building of a white card which turned out gray (no flash with this).  I used this setting and it seemed to produce a good picture.  I then took an inside picture with flash of white card and that picture turned out white.  I used that setting and the flash inside building of the same object and colors did not seem the same. How do you get the correct WB in a gym for instance or under lighting that...

I was wondering which long lens people like with the Olympus EM-5 (and E-PM2 as backup)? Do people like the Olympus 75-300mm or the Panasonic 100-300mm? Now, on the EM-5, the Panasonic's IS would need to be turned off (or the camera's IS turned off). On the E-PM2, I can set the camera to favor using lens IS if it has it over sensor based IS. I suspect lens based IS might be more effective than sensor shift. The Olympus wins out in terms of weight (430g vs 520g), which might be a factor in...
