I am wondering if anyone else has experienced the following. I was filtering my library (Aperture) for those photos taken with my M.Zuiko 9-18mm lens. After setting up the filter for the lens, copying one of the photo's exif info for the lens in question, to the lens filter description, I saw only about half of the photos show up in the results. After going back to the filter setup, and re-entering the name of the lens, I simply could not get all of the photos taken with the 9-18 lens to show...

Hi all! New to the forum so please be gentle! I'm hoping to traveling through China for 3 weeks towards the end of the year and need a decent tripod to go with my Olympus EPL5 with 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro Lens, so a bit heavier than the usual lenses. Heard great raves about the Sirui T-025x and this is most probably what I will go for but I have a chance to get the slightly heavier (and heightier) refurbished Giottos Vitruvian VGRN8255 with MH5400-652 Ball Head second hand for roughly the same...

Hello, I'm switching from an E-PL5 to a MFT camera with a viewfinder (because E-PL5 + additional viewfinder roughly equals the price of an E-M10, which has nice additional features), and I'm strongly hesitating between the E-M10 and the E-M1. The former has a nicer price, but the latter has an EVF with a better definition (2.44 MP vs 1.40 I believe), and no review exactly help me to tell them apart on this point, as both are pointed as having good EVFs (notably thanks to brightness...

Is there a way to add the Olympus E-PL6 to the list of cameras on DPReview?  I picked up one while in Japan this spring.  I think it's very similar to the E-PL5, but I imagine people would like to know the details.  There is an announcement of the E-PL6 on DPReview that has some of the details, but I think it gets some details wrong.  For example, it is also available in Europe, but the announcement say Japan-only.

I'm shopping around for a mirrorless camera and I have 3 things I'm really looking at: Low light performance High speed video (even 120FPS at lower resolution would be okay) Time lapse. It seems like pretty much any of the APS-C or 4/3rds sensor cameras will have pretty good low light performance, but it looks like none of them do high speed or time lapse (at least based on the search features of this site). Oddly, Nikon's CX sensor cameras all do high speed and may also do time lapse. It...

I recently purchased the OMD-EM1 with a 12-40mm 2.8 Pro lens. When I take pictures with the camera and an Oly 52 AF-1 Metz Flash every shot is underexposed by several F-stops. The EM1 takes correctly exposed pictures with a Metz 24 AF-1. I also own an Oly E-PL5 and take perfectly exposed pictures with it using the Oly 52 AF-1 Metz Flash. Firmware Em1 is 1.4 and the Oly 52 AF-1 Metz is 2.1; both are the newest version on the Olympus and Metz websites. When I try to update the Oly 52 AF-1 Metz...

Hello. I travel a lot working as a camera assistant, and I really like to carry all my M43 gear with me, I usually always carry my EPL-5 around on set, with one lens and a simple carry-on bag. The issue I have is that now, with many lenses and bodies, I will insure all the equipment and I want to organize everything nicely in a sturdy Pelican, HPRC or some other brand of hard-case before I take the gear photographs for the insurance company. Pelican makes thousands of sizes and models, and it...

Hi Guys, I just picked up a bargain priced E-PM2 &, without success, I'm bouncing around the menus trying to figure out how to switch off those irritating help text messages that pop up every time you move to a new menu item. Please point me in the right direction.

Hi after some time using the Panny 7-14 Ive now noticed purple flare appearing around very bright elements in the scene - ie bright windows in a dark hall. Is there any fix for this and does the same thing happen with Panasonic bodies? Does the same thing happen with the Oly 9-18mm or is it unique to the 7-14?
