Hello all, I've got an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Pancake with the 14-42 EZ Pancake kit lens for portability, and was wondering where could I find the smallest case for this combo. Added points if it's leather.  I've got bigger cases to take it with other lenses and acessories, but none just for the smallest configuration with the pancake.  Is there something of this kind you could reccomend?  Thanks in advance from Portugal!

Hi, so I've organised a couple of TFP shoots as I'm looking to build my portfolio. So far what's been organised is a: - Lingerie shot indoors - Outdoors portraits and fashion shots The camera I have is an Olympus E-M1 with Nissin i40 Flash (swivel flash TTL). I have a range of lenses so not worried about lens selection I've only used the flash in hot-shoe TTL bounce previously, so I need to move it off-camera and get some experience with off-camera lighting. I was going to use the Nissin i40...

What have owners found to be the most effective software for noise control on indoor lighting shots in the area of 3200 to 6400 iso raw files?

I've had my E-M1 since early 2014 and now have the 12-40 F2.8 & 40-150mm F2.8 PRO lenses, along with the usual array of filters and nick-nacks including SD cards and portable hard drives.  Can anyone recommend accessories they have found to be very useful, not just for the E-M1? Thanks in advance.

It's still early summer but I've already booked a trip to go to Whistler this coming winter and am thinking about what to bring. I have always wanted to bring a camera there to capture the beautiful mountains and scenery up there but have been fearing about the safety of my camera and lenses. Therefore, wanted some suggestions as to what type of camera, bags, straps, etc are recommended in these situations. Camera: -OM-D E-M1 I have my trusty OM-D E-M1 + 12-40 which I have been through rain...

This may have been discussed before and I've seen some examples of it on blogs and what not but I wanted to get some input about real-world experience. How good is the EM-1's focus tracking with lenses like the 40-150 PRO (and the other PRO lenses)? And, more importantly, how good is it in low-light and/or backlit conditions? I photograph a weekly car show and I've found its award ceremony at the end of the show (where I have to track a man hopped up on red bull as he dances and runs around...

The 0-second anti-shock setting on the E-M1 is supposed to be helpful when shooting at shutter speeds of 1/320th or slower.  I was recently shooting at much faster shutter speeds, and I forgot to turn off the 0-second anti-shock.  Does anyone know what effect this would have on an image?  In other words, how important is it to turn off the 0-second anti-shock when shooting at shutter speeds faster than 1/320th? --www.joyfuljourneyphotography.com

On vacation last week, I shot a number of images with my new Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the Olympus 12-40 f/2.8 lens.  I was pleased with the sharpness of the images, and with the absence of any chromatic aberration.  However, I was disappointed by the amount of noise in the shadow areas of an image at ISO 200.  I had previously read that one could go up to about ISO 1600 on the E-M1 without undue noise.  In my images, there was noticeable noise at ISO 200 in areas that were just moderate shadows,...

I recently bought an Olympus OM-D E-M1 and several lenses, and I am looking to buy a lightweight tripod for this system.  Would like to hear your recommendations.  My current tripod is a Manfrotto 190CXPRO3, which weighs 3.5 pounds -- yes, that is lightweight, but it is overkill for my new camera, and I'd like to get something that is the lightest weight possible.  My new camera and the heaviest lens I would ever want to buy will weigh under 3 pounds.  I prefer a tripod with 3 leg sections...

I was reading this article as i was thinking to upgrade from the EM5 to the EM1. http://cameralabs.com/reviews/Olympus_OMD_EM1/EM1_diffraction_compensation.shtml i was happy to see this function as i've understood during these years that m4/3 system is quite exposed to this phenomena due to the sensor dimension and pixel density (someone is saying that it starts at F5.6 other at F8). My question is: is there any way to get the M1's RAW files post processed on the PC with the same diffraction...
