I recently found that when I turn on my E-PL5 there is a loud noise, first is like whir~~, and then come with the wired sound "pus", start from 5 second and end in 6, I'm not sure what is wrong, can anybody tell me please, the camera can still work and nothing special I've upload my video here, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hoxwn2drBQI&feature=youtu.be  Thanks a lot

I own a XZ-1 currently, and thinking of upgrading to E-PL5, for the faster AF speed and also better image quality, I shoot my kids mainly (gosh, this doesn't sounds right). As I have never had ILC before, I am thinking of sticking with the Kit Lens for a while. I do know that eventually I will need to get a Portrait Lens. My question is, is the Kit Lens comparable to XZ-1 in terms of Bokeh? The XZ-1 has a 1/1.6 size sensor, and 6-24mm 1.8-2.5 lens. And I found that the best Bokeh can be...

I have had my E-PL5 for about 8 months & am not very happy using the screen for composing full time. I am used to my Canon DSLR's [60D + 7D] I have looked at a couple of u-tube reviews which seem to favour the VF-2. Has anyone had this item, is it good & is it a better bet to buy a used VF-2 or a new VF-3. I have never used a EVF but don't want to sell the Oly. Any help appreciated. TIA. --lee uk.There are old pilots, & there are bold pilots, but there are no old bold pilots."I'm so fast,...

An interchangable lens camera that compact with a viewfinder is just a dream come true. But once I saw the resolution being only 1,166,000 I have doubts on whether I can tolerate with this resolution. Even the RX100 III has higher resolution than this. I have used the Sony A3000 before and the EVF is just a nightmare, but given it's price it's a fair trade. But from what I heard the GM5 won't be cheap given pre-order price is almost $900 on Amazon 0.o . A 2nd hand E-PL5/6 is currently at low...

Hey everyone, I just bought an Olympus Pen E-PL5 and I am wondering if there is any way I can use a wireless shutter release remote control with it. I did some research and I was only able to find some threads about using a hard wired remote control but not a wireless one. I need them for big family portraits so I'd really prefer wireless. The E-PL5 does not have built-in wifi but it is Eye-Fi connected so is there somehow I can use the Eye-Fi to connect to a wireless remote? Or perhaps you...

How do I enable the live view histogram - assuming this is possible - I can't find my manual...?

Hello there, First I apologize if I don't post this in the right section of the forums. The problems I'm having is that the E-PL5 will often get stuck on a frame (when set on "Sequential" not Single) and then turn itself off. Then even if I turn it on sometimes it just won't work for minutes on end. Another problem, the kit lens (the only one I have) sometimes will not register with the camera. I'll take it off and put it back on a thousand times and nothing. Cleaned the register/sensor...

Apologies if this is something the forum has dealt with before. I ran a search for "shutter locks" and found nothing but an ocean of shutter SHOCK threads. Even a google search only turned up a single instance of this happening (a YouTube video), with no useful info on the cause or the cure. The camera has begun exhibiting a frequent but seemingly random shutter locking behavior. The shutter will be firing fine, and then it will fire and stick shut. After about 4 seconds, the camera powers...

Good Afternoon, I have never had photos printed.  I would like to print the odd photo to approximately 48 inches by 36 inches on canvas or paper.  Types of scenes may be portraits or landscape or underwater or astrophotography. What I would be grateful for is advice on whether there would be a noticeable difference in the print if the photo was taken on the Olympus EPL5 versus Canon 40D versus  the Canon 5D Mark II when the print will be large.  I own the Olympus EPL5 as well as the Canon 40D...

If you were going for a too-brief trip to Olympic National Park and wanted to minimize the gear you were going to take, what would you take? I've never been there, so I'm not really sure how to pack. I studied Flickr already to get an idea about what's there and mined the EXIF data to figure out what FLs folks used to obtain the shots I liked best. However, I thought I'd ask y'all if you had any advice. I have three M43 bodies (E-M5, E-M1, E-PL5) and an RX-1, and a variety of FL primes and...
