Hi... I currently own an Olympus E-P3, along with Panasonic 14-42, Panasonic 14 prime and Panasonic 45-200 lenses. I primarily use the camera for landscapes and wildlife shots while hiking; very rarely indoors. I wouldn't call myself a serious hobbyist, but I've learned enough to feel comfortable using occasional manual settings for certain situations. So... this summer our family will be doing a tour of various national parks out west. For us, it's sort of a once-in-a-lifetime trip. I'd like...
I had a pixel that was dead on my EP3 and showed only green in most shots with a dark areas. That problem started after a year of use so I lived with it. I recently got an EM1 to replace the EP3 and after two weeks of use I have a red pixel that shows on dark areas. Not exactly the background. But if the area where the pixel in question is very Black the pixel shows red. If the area is white or any number of other colors it shows the proper color. Always in the same place in the frame. Is...
Hi! I have a 9 year old son who shows some interest in photography and videography. Would like to buy a cheap camera for him. Cheap because he will probably break it soon. But tough compacts are too expensive, even old ones, and their photo quality is too bad. I own a full Olympus m4/3 system and I gave him my old Olympus E-P3. It's a very well built camera, it doesn't break if you drop it on asphalt from 4 feet height. But, since it was 3.3 year old it recently stopped working. Shutter...
I have been using my E-M5 for about a year and even though I like it a lot I never really fell for it. I just recently bought a GX-7 and must say I´m in love. This might very well be exactly what I was looking for, fingers crossed :-) Since I´m a hobbyist and don't shoot all that much I see no reason to keep both more advanced bodies, the Olympus is going to spend most of its time on the shelf or in the bag anyways. I plan on selling the E-M5 and get myself a used somewhat simpler Olympus...
Hi all My everyday camera is a Nikon D7100, and I have been a Nikon user for quite some time now, but I have been trying out some smaller cameras for over 1 year just to get the feel. I recently purchased an Olympus E-P3, and would like to update the firmware as it is showing version 1.0. From what I have read, I think that the newer version is 1.3. I also have a VF-3, so first: I would like to know if the newer version does anything to improve the VF-3, and my next question is: why do you...
Hi guys, newbie here! I was using the HD 1080p mode on my EP-3 with the original 14-42 mm lens for shooting a video but I was struggling at the focusing close-ups (around 10 cm). It worked when I pressed the shutter button but it won't sustain, only if I don't release it. Am I missing something? Cheers.
