First off just want to apologize if this has been talked to death here but I can't find anything recent about this topic. I've only been in the M4/3 camp for a very short time period, and while I am loving the versatility and ruggedness my EM1 + 40-150 PRO lens is giving me I often find myself wanting just that little bit more DoF control. I also worry that the 12-40 PRO lens will just exasperate this problem. Being a primarily zoom shooter (I'm lazy) and coming from FF (I know, I know, groan...

hi everybody, when shooting video with the e-p1, what are your settings and/or tricks? (accessories?) am i right that changing aperture and exposure compensation is all i can control in video mode? any comments would be greatly appreciated! fieo UPDATE: can i reduce the noise level (especially when shooting video in low light) by switching to another lens or is it due to the sensor?

Please help me, Posted this on sony nex - aps-c forum too. I'm trying to decide between a Brand new Sony A6000 + 18-105 f4.0 vs Sony Rx10 (version 1) (this one will be a used one). It will mainly be used for wedding video (75% video and 25% stills). It will be an A cam (the a6000 is more expensive and im afriad it will overheat.. I have a sony a55 and it overheats a 4 or 5 minutes in direct sunlight; The Sony A7 I sold.. overheated too but rarely. I had a a57 (didn´t overheat) that was stolen...

Hello, my son would love to start shooting macro photos, and, given that I'm not using my venerable Olympus Pen EP-1, I am considering buying the Olympus 60mm f/2.8 macro lens for that purpose and let him use the resulting kit. The only doubt I have: will he suffer any major limitation due to the age of the camera? Apart from speed in general, I mean. What about autofocus? Any problem with the MSC lens autofocus when mounted on the EP-1? Many thanks for your help, feedbacks and...

Hello, I couldn't find the answer to this question on this forum or elsewhere. How can I make the camera  display the focus point on the LCD while framing?

I'm looking at buying a couple of cheap flashes. and was wondering if ether of the Yongnuo EX TTL flashes will work with the E-P1 TTL functionality, and if so the Cannon, or Nikon variety? If neither will work, I assume there is no problem using the cheaper manual YONGNUO YN-560 IV flash? (as only the centre pin is being used, and the only ramification for picking a Cannon or Nikon variety would be making sure I get the cosponsoring Yongnuo trigger?)

Would love to see a hand held test from somone with a EM5/EM1/EP5 and a panasonic 100-300mm.... at 100mm and 300mm! Find the place (sutter speed) the OIS can only just get 50% sharp images, 30 soft and 20% poor... Then turn off OIS and turn on IBIS... and see the results side by side! Once you find the right shutter speed just take 3 images with OIS then switch and take 3 more... do the same for 100m and 300mm then show them hear! As a side question: on the newer Oly cams in Apature priorety...

I picked up a "new" E-M1 the other day. I specifically asked the retailer to ensure it was not a demo unit but brand new, unopened. I visually checked in the store and it looked okay. When I powered it up at home I found that it did not ask me to set up the time, date etc. I then checked the shutter count and found that the unit has 184 actuations. It looks like the retailer provided me with a demo unit ever though I requested a new camera (the obvious tell tale sign was that the time/date...

I have been using an E-P1 for over three years.  I mostly shoot manual and use AF, so I never use the AE compensation button on the top (near the shutter release) or the AEL/AFL button on the back.  I have set the Fn button for custom white balance, which I do use often enough with a gray card I carry around with me everywhere.  One setting I find myself reaching for often enough is the noise filter, which I set to "low" at iso 800 and above.  I'd love to be able to either set the camera to...

Ok - So I know this is an old camera - but I'm just getting into the whole m4/3 thing (and I love it so far).  Question is - does the IS automatically adjust to the focus length of the lens, or do I have to set it when I put a new lens on? I ask because I prefer primes - and while it says "Auto" - when I change from my Panasonic 14mm to my Sigma 30mm, the focal length does not change with the lens. It says "Auto" below the words "focal length" - but in the lower right says "12mm".  Do I need...
