i have an E-P1 that I bought when it was first released (2009?), and the 14-42 and 40-150 kit lenses that came with it.  I like the size and style of the PEN cameras but I haven't used mine much in recent years do to lack of opportunity.  However, I will be going on a cruise this summer and want to take lots of photos and videos. I am very interested in upgrading to newer versions of the lenses, but I am confused about which lenses are the best/newest versions. There seems to be a very wide...

Hello Sony APS-C Forum, I am considering the purchase of a new camera for travel.  I want a camera that's small, light weight and very capable for under $1000 for body alone so the Sony a6000 looks interesting. I have been using my Oly E-P1 since 2010 and am now desiring an upgrade in photo quality, focusing speed and video.  The E-P1 is very slow with focus and has low-res video.  Looks like the a6000 is a winner.  My question concerns file storage on the a6000 and how will I move the files...

Hi I have owned an EP 1 complete with a  14 -42 zoom lens as standard, for an number of years now. It has worked well, and I have often used it with my e system lenses, and,  the then, required adaptor, to allow the same to fit on the afore mentioned body! So Far so good! In a moment of madness, I bought a Olympus 40 to 150  ED MSC lens, to save always carrying the larger E lenses. That's the back ground, now this is my question, and  my problem. the fist time I used the 40 to 150 lens it...

Hi guys; I've been shooting with Oly E-P1 and Canon 60d, and it is time to buy a new camera. I'm a m. doctor so this camera will also be used to record my patients. Budget: 1000-1200 euros Priorities: 60% Stills (indoors, portraits, and few low-light situations); 40% Video (indoor, no uber need for 4k although good 1080p would be appreciated). Detailed 1080p and still IQ are what i'm looking for. Current Glass: Oly 17mm f2.8; Canon EF-S kit zoom 17-55 and 10-18. I'm thinking this is a good...

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?)
