The front dial on my E-P5 is giving me fits. When I spin it to adjust exposure (I use it as exposure compensation in A mode), it does not always register with each click. For example, I will rotate the dial to drop exposure 1/3 stop, and nothing happens. I rotate it again, and the exposure drops. Then it might work for a while. Sometimes I can spin the dial several clicks before it actually does something. Am I missing something? Is this normal behavior at any time? Can I only spin the dial...

Hello, So I just got my first real camera. An Olympus EP-5 and what a lovely camera. It takes great photos and all that stuff, but you already know that. See, I am a newbie, when it comes to photography generally, but I want to learn. In addition to that I have a few questions regarding the lens M.ZUIKO 17mm f/1.8.  I am having a hard time figuring out how to do a normal zoom with the camera. It seems like I am only able to press the zoom button where it goes all the way to a 5x zoom where...

Hello everyone. I'm planning on buying my first serious flash kit. But I just noticed that I can't use a flash trigger on my E-P5 with the VF-4 attached! I know I can use the built-in flash to trigger slave units, but sometimes it doesn't work well in outdoors or long distances. Did anyone had this problem? Any suggestions? Can the E-P5 RC mode sync with other brands of flashes (ex. Yongnuo 560III) or triggers (Yongnuo, Godox)? Is there another way to sync flashes without using the...

Olympus E-P5 - Help please ¡¡¡¡ I upgrade the firmware from v 1.2 to v 1.3 a few months ago without problems. Now I try upgrade to v 1.5 and after a few seconds of running the OLYMPUS Digital Cameras Updater the program provides me the following message "Unable to connect to the server (0x80041037)" I check the USB connection and allows me to seamlessly access to the SD in the camara. Naturally the Wifi connection works perfectly. What's the problem ? Could someone help me ?

Hi All, Well, after my adventure trying to install firmware 1.5 on my E-P5, I now have a different problem. It seems in the PASM modes, I'm stuck on a 9 box autofocus pattern where a 3x3 grid covers the normal 5x7 grid area. No matter what I do, I cannot change it back to the 35 point pattern. I've looked at AF box size, AF magnification, using the Info button when in AF adjust mode, and more. Pages 40-42 in the E-P5 owner's manual do not help. I have three MySets and they all properly use...

My 4 yo yanked the cord between camera and computer when I was upgrading firmware to ver 1.1 for my Lumix/Leica Nocticron 42.5. I have an Olympus Pen E-P5 and used Olympus' Digital Camera Updater for the process. It gave me a due warning not to touch the camera (red stop signs at the rear screen) and this was all it took to trigger my daughters curiosity. Now the lens is a paperweight. It produces no image and isn't even 'seen' by the camera. I have also tried it on a Lumix GM1 to no avail. I...

Now I remember why I dislike the Olympus method of updating cameras and lenses so much. I recently purchased an E-P5 with the original firmware version 1.0 in place. I want to apply v1.5. I downloaded and installed the Olympus Updater and began the update. No matter what I do, I get this message: Error 0x80041037 The software recognizes the camera just fine. I have tried connecting the camera to the computer both before and after I start the Updater. I rebooted the computer after the Updater...

I know there's been rumors about an update in Firmware for both the E-P5 and E-M5. Just got a refurb'ed E-P5 in mint coNDITION and a shutter count of 143. I hope that's a for real number and not something that was reset. I checked the Firmware in the camera and it says Body - 1.0, and Lens - 1.0. I checked the page where I updated my E-M5 Firmware a couple of months ago. Anything I should be wary of in this process that might freak me out? Like the E-M5 seemed to get hung up on one of the...

I am trying to get the fastest SUSTAINED sequential speeds out of my E-P5. The review here... http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympus-pen-e-p5/12 The mode I was trying to hit was JPEG/Large/Fine at 5.0fps.  But I'm getting less than half that, only 2.0fps after the buffer fills.  All the other numbers are slow too.  2.0fps vs 3.0fps for RAW H, and the buffer seems to fill faster than theirs does.  I only get 23 shots vs 30 shots in RAW L. IS is off.  Shutter speed is 1/1000.  I have the "L/H...

I've been following the development of large-sensored compact cameras as well as mirrorless cameras with a lot of interest, since I've always fantasized about a small and compact camera that can perform similarly to professional DSLR in image quality, response, and accuracy.  It seems we're right at the point where this is actually happening, and I'm wondering if it's time I got one of these new breeds of high-end, small-sized cameras.  As background, I currently shoot the 5D Mark III as my...
