Hi, Looking at flashes for my 520. Is it worth getting an olympus branded one or are 3rd party ones ok? I was looking at this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yongnuo-Upgraded-Flash-Speedlite-YN-560-II-for-Nikon-Canon-Pentax-Olympus-Camera-/111289200320?pt=UK_CamerasPhoto_CameraAccessories_CameraFlashUnits_JN&hash=item19e95a6ec0 But not sure if the camera can control it. In the book it says that it can only control specially designed flashes

I have been impressed by the various reviews of the EM5 noise levels: reviewers being happy with 3200 and even 6400. This I hoped would provide me with an increase of around 3-4 stops above my E520. (I wish to use my 70-300 on an EM10 (not yet on dxo) at higher shutter speeds than I can at the moment on my E520 so a useful high ISO is important) The dxo graphs: (select measurements - SNR...

Hi, I have been playing with the metering options in the camera, As i am trying to learn i thought it was be useful to see the metering readings in the eyepiece all the time even in A and S modes when it is doing it for me. So I can see what it is picking to use as a reference. Is there an option to do that. I have looked through the book but been unable to find it. Thanks Steve

Hi, I just picked up an E-520 on ebay cheap. It is my first DSLR before that I have had point and shoots. I know by todays standards it is a little dated, but thought it would be a good camera to learn on before I spend a lot on a new unit. I want to order a new CF card (or several) but I cant seem to find what cards the camera supports. I am hoping some of you have or have Had this camera that could answer a few questions for me Will it take a 16gb card? What speed will it write at maximum?...

Hi all! I am planning to buy a Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro for E-M1 and I need little more information than I have managed to find from web from dozens or so reviews (videos and text with samples). I have been shooting macros with OM-adapter on 4/3 camera with Zuiko 50mm f/3.5 Macro so it has been a 100mm and DoF deoth two times as well. Usually I have used three OM extension tubes but sometimes extension zoom and sometimes bellows. Because 4/3 live view, I have managed to use all of them...

Hello everybody! I am a E-520 user with quite a few Four Third Lenses. As oly is apparently dropping that standard, I'm looking forward to upgrade my current body to a new OM-D. Do you thing this new oly camera could be the right choice for me? specially considering that I would like to continue using my current lenses? (I got an olympus 50mm 2.0 macro recently). As far as I understand this new camera does not include the on-sensor phase detection elements, that come with the E-M1. But what...

I am about to buy a new camera and I want to start fresh if possible as my main gear got destroyed (crushed) and nothing than metal/magnesium pieces and glass was left in flat form. My secondary gear (now the only one) was Olympus E-520 double kit. 24-45mm and 70-300mm what I used for macro and low light photography. Now I am going to spend 800-2400€ to new set and I have difficulties to make a choice. Here are my choices: 1) Olympus E-M1 + 12-40mm f/2.8 for 2199€ Then later buy a DHL-7 grip...

I just purchase an E-P5 and starts to shoot raw, however the results makes me wonder if there's anything wrong with my cam.  For all the files i have shot, all shows as underexposed in raw converters (ACR, Picasa, Rawtherapee) by at least 1 stop. The only software where it shows the exposure correctly is Olympus Viewer 3. Being a user of the E-520 for 4 years i have never experience this issue with ORF files, they shows up with the expected exposure in all softwares. I have make sure that i...
