In a couple of books/articles, I've seen reference to a smart phone app for determining depth of field, hyper focal setting, etc.. The app is called DOFMaster. So for a few bucks, I downloaded that app. I figured that the app would offer a camera setting called "Micro 4/3," but it doesn't. Instead, it lists a whole bunch of specific lens sizes, specific cameras, plus circle of confusion sizes. It isn't clear that any of these settings corresponds to Micro 4/3. So I don't know which setting to...

Simple question, hopefully simple answer. I have a chance to pick up a good priced EM5 if I want. My GX7 is great in most ways, video, silent mode, S-AF is super fast. My only real complaint is C-AF. Many of my shots aren't bothered by this, but sometimes I must wait for less movement. The better IBIS would also help at times, such as available light macro. Mostly interested in EM5 AF tracking from anybody who has a comparative experience, thanks in advance. --"Run to the light, Carol Anne....

I used my Olympus Fl-300 flash with fresh AAA batteries on my E-M1 hotshoe today for a family function.  The recycle time was painfully slow--estimate more than 10 seconds.  It felt like forever. What other flash is compatible and has a fast recycle time?  Weight and bulk are secondary but important features.

I have $1500.00 to get new equipment but not sure how to spend... I have the following list of equipment. 1.) Fuji XPro-1 with 35mm lens 2.) Canon 70D with 18-135mm lens 3.) Olympus 12-40mm PRO lens (gave my EM5 to my son but kept this lens in case I wanted to get EM1) and 12-60mm lens I kept from my old E3. I shoot mainly street, low light and some sports. Do I get an XT-1, EM1 or another lens? I've read posts and reviews and still very undecided. Thanks B.C.

I finally made up my mind to get the EM1. I have both EM5 and GX7that I use regularly.  Should I keep the EM5 or GX7? I like both cameras and have no problem with the mannuals, operation and IQ.   I Like the EM1 because I have a couple of 3/4 lenses and also handling and responsivness.

Hi, I use the 2x teleconverter in my OM-D E-M1 a good bit.  Especially with my 75-300mm.  What I'm challenged by is achieving the same composition in the RAW file that I have in the jpeg version of the image.  The jpeg file is baked with the 2x image when shot, and as you know, the RAW isn't.  So in Lightroom I have to crop the raw image to achieve the same image as the jpeg.  I know that this is a plus feature, but I'd like to be able to see my original composition as shot in the RAW file...

It works, and it works well, even if you have to manually dial in the focal length. It lacks focus peaking, so I rely on a magnified view to nail focus, but the way I have set up the camera, this is just a button press away and since the magnified view is set up to be stabilised it works well enough for me. Hi Macx, I remember your excellent and meaningful comments about...
