In the past, I have been able to see the exposure preview in live view when I half-press the shutter button. It would show me whether or not I need to increase or decrease exposure level. If the live view image was too dark, I would increase the exposure level and vice versa. I shoot in A mode. That function no longer seems to work. Is there a setting for this that I might have inadvertently changed? Thanks in advance, Jim Fowler, Greenville, SC

Some time ago I recall seeing a posting here on how to navigate the Olympus menu for focus adjustment. Honestly I find the manual and the menu titles on the camera confusing. Can someone point me to the post that itemized how to do this? I want to adjust each lens and have that setting stored so it kicks in when the lens is mounted. Thanks in advance, Bob

Watching this site for awhile, very knowledgeable folks here from what I can tell.    To the chase, I am currently shooting with an Olympus E-500 (8mp & 10yrs old I think) that I pretty much leave in manual mode.    The images come out at 310dpi but when I used the wifes Canon SX40hd (12mp?) they read as 150dpi......    Both were used in appx the same settings.      So while this kinda un nerves me, can anyone tell me what the dpi would be for a Nikon D3200 or D3300 (my next camera maybe due...

Recently my car was stolen in addition to my E-5, E420.  And 4 of my lenses.  (14-70mm was one of them) I am looking to stay with the Olympus brand and am wondering what all of your thoughts are on replacing the E-5 with another E-5 or making the move to the OM-D line. I do a lot of backpacking and outdoors adventures and my E-5 had routinely found itself "abused" by the elements or by rocks on the sides of mountains.  It held up amazingly well especially paired with the 14-70 lens.  Good...

My Canon video camera crashed and out of desperation I started using my E-5 for video. Just downloaded one into Premier Elements 11 to edit, but Premier says Error and does not support codec. Can anyone help me get this figured out. I know the E-5 isn't the best for video but it's what I have right now until I can afford another Canon. Thanks, Steve

Why is it that in Live View the photo comes out crisp and clear, when the same photo taken via the view finder is not as crisp and clear using the same settings, by the way. Thank you for your help. Win in Thailand --Kan Win

I pulled my camera from the bag and found to my horror the front dial was missing. A quick search and there it was in the bag. I fitted it back on over the shutter release and gently rotated it. It seemed to settle into place a bit and actually worked, but it was't secure... A little pressure and it snapped into place. Next day, happened again as I the dial rubbed against a seam, flipping it loose. Again, easily replaced, but one day it will get lost. Any one else have this happen? Any home...
