There have been a whole bunch of threads recently regarding the EM1 V4 firmware update and how some people thought it had done some screwy things (mainly to the IBIS performance). Oly have now released V4.1, and anecdotal evidence seems to suggest they've probably sorted out the glitches in V4. But what about the EM5II ? Around the time the EM1 got the V4 update, didn't the EM5II get a similar update as well (to give the focus bracketing?). Were there any 'issues' with that firmware update...

Hi all Yesterday I was taking some shots at dusk on the beach using a tripod and exposures ranging from 1/5 up to 10 seconds. On my EM1 with 12-40 Pro and a UV filter on. I'm noticing in quite a few shots what appears to be 'blown' pixels (blocks of bright green, blue and red). I'm not 100% sure what this is as I've not noticed in any shots before, including long exposures. Could anyone explain? Is this the sensor overheating?? I was taking quite a few in succession because the light was...

Hello all, I have been following this websites since years and learning a bit and here is my first post, where I need some suggestions.As you see from my gear list, I have E-M1 and few wonderful lenses. I have question for Oly 75-300mm, which I am thinking to change.What I love on Oly 75-300mm - Light, inexpensive, great reachWhat I didn't liked (or I have not learned) - Dust time pictures, bird/wildlife pictures in vegetation (AF haunting), less sharp (and colors) than my other lenses like...

Hi All, First post here, but I've been lurking since long before I had grey hair:) I have my A7II set up exactly how I like it, namely, I don't have to remove my camera from my eye while shooting/composing to change all of the things I find necessary to change quickly (I always shoot in Manual mode). To wit: AEL button: focus (half press on shutter deactivated - note, I rarely use AF) C1: zebra off/%C2: magnifies current focus point (peaking is on) C4: drive mode (I make snap decisions based...

I used to have the 9-18mm, but let it go seeking improved light gathering and coverage abilities. My two only options are obviously the Olympus 7-14mm f:2.8 and the Panasonic f:4 version. I really don't want to deal with the 4/3 7-14, since I'll lose AF on my E-M10. My clear choice was the Olympus, although, thinking really hard about it, spending over a grand, seems like a very long throw. My photography business is starting, but I'm still growing, and while f:2.8 is only one stop faster...

I've just switched to an X-T1 from my X-T10, and I don't know if it's just the shock of using a new camera, but it seems like auto-exposure is not as consistent on my X-T1 as it was on X-T10.  I have to dial exposure compensation way down in aperture priority mode on the X-T1 (latest firmware).  I thought the two would be in line with each other at this point, between different firmware updates. What do you think, am I imagining things? (On a handling note, X-T10 is defiintely nicer feeling...

I just want to make sure I'm not crazy, but there's no way to get 2nd curtain sync and do manual flash power at the same time, right?  It seems you're stuck with tweaking flash exposure compensation if you want 2nd curtain ...

Hi Seeking help for a newbie with the E-M1. I have recently purchased an Olympus E-M1 and one of the two lenses I also bought was the m.Zuiko 75-300 f4.8-6.7 II.   A problem I have been having is forcing the camera to focus on 'near' objects - the focus system seems to want to go to the background and I have not yet worked out how to pull it back to an object that is relatively close.  Although the minimum focus distance of this lens is 1.5 metres, I seem to have trouble getting the...

Sorry if this has been covered but I did an unsuccessful search. Is anyone getting good macros from this feature? I read that the Olympus Tough TG-3 and 4,  the OM EM1, and maybe some Hasselblads can do it in-camera. Are there any others? Is this viable, productive? Does it save the fiddling about in post? I guess the high-end ones work, but how does the little Tough go, which can be bought quite cheaply? Thanks.

Hi all, So I recently got the EM5II and got an aftermarket Fotodiox grip for it as with the heavier Pro lenses it's not as ideal in terms of ergonomics without a grip.  It has improved the handling a bit, but still not great as the bottom corner kinda pushes into my hand, so it just isn't as comfortable as it could be. Now I'm still just left with the feeling that ergonomically the EM5II will leave me wanting more and am now thinking if I should just get the EM1 instead.  I know there's a...
