Does anyone have problems with their memory card being renamed "no name" every time it comes out of the camera? With my E-500 and E-30, I used multiple cards and they retained their unique names even if swapped between cameras. With my E-M1 I have tried with three different sdhc cards (given a name while connected to the computer) and upon reloading after the card has been inserted into the camera, it comes back again as "no name" Could not find a thread related to this issue and I am unsure...
Hi I am thinking on getting an E-M1 as the system now really looks promising with the lens lineup and the upcoming one. 7-14 f/2.812-40 f/2.840-150 f/2.8300 f/4 Now, coming from E-5 and having had all my nice SHG lenses. How would you compare the E-M1 with firmware 2.2 to the E-5 combination? Is AF fast with native lenses?Is AF fast with MMF3 adapted lenses (SHG)Is C-AF more reliable than on E-5?Do SWD lenses now perform better with MMF3 on E-M1 than it did on E-M5? I am thinking on starting...
I just bought a new to me E-5, on auction. Have had it a few days everything seems to be working fine is has about 25k actuations which I don't have a problem with. Now comes the But, I noticed that there was copyright information inputed in the artist and copyright fields, I have spent the last 2 days trying to change or delete it without any luck, I finally figured out that my erase (trashcan) button is not deleting the characters like it is supposed so I tried to delete a picture and...
I recently got this camera from my uncle in Canada and I was really excited to try it out. I fiddled with the manual settings since I learned most of it in school (we had a dedicated photography class). I eventually realized my lenses weren't meant for close shots that much (one lens is 40-150 mm and the other is 14-45 mm). I fiddled with it some more, and I noticed eventually that the aperture reading was blank. it was just f-.- what it says on my viewer It doesnt matter what mode Im using...
Having taken the plunge and bought the M-Zuiko 12-40mm f2.8 for my OMD -M1 -I am now preparing to list my OLYMPUS E5 & 12-60mm SWD on british auction site, to ease the pain- Do I sell together or sell separately.? THe E5 (1031 actuations, but no box) has been lightly used and comes with 1 x 64gb sdxc & 1 x 16gb Sandisk, 2 x BLM-5 batteries and 2 x chargers and 1x HLD-4 power grip. As a lot of you seem to be buying and selling quite frequently I would appreciate some serious feedback please.
A few years ago when I had a Olympus E-510, I had this lens and it was a reasonable nice lens to have because of the reach. I now have the EM5 and the adapter for 4/3 lens and would like to purchase this lens again to use on the EM5, but because of the slower focus problem with 4/3 lens.... not so sure. Are any of you using this lens on your EM1 or EM5 and if so, could you give me some feedback on its operation?
I apologize if this question has been answered already. New to photography I am looking to buy my first camera, for street/documentary. My choice was the xe2 but now I am considering the olympus system mainly because of small and light lens option compared to fuji. Would you guys so kind to explain why I should buy an om e5 over an om e10 or viceversa? Thanks in advance Davide
