It appears that neither my E-M5 or E-PM2 offer auto ISO in M mode. I am curious which mFT bodies do offer this option - does anyone know of a list showing this? Or if there is a trick to enabling this on an E-M5 - I haven't found one. I am fully aware that adding auto anything to M mode no longer makes it truly an M mode, but would rather avoid that topic here, there are other threads already for that. :) Thanks --Shawn Wrighthttp://www.flickr.com/photos/zuikowesty/

Hi, sorry for a noob question. I just got a hand on an e-pm2 and couldn't figure out how to set the aperture on non m4/3 lense (in A and M mode). I have no problem with m4/3 lense but when I put on the the adapter the aperture display "--" and I can't change it. Is there something I have to turn on or off ? thanks,

Hi, I am a bit confused and maybe someone can help me. As a background, I bought a Panansonic GH4 almost two years ago (for sports and filming, and I love it) and have started to use it for astrophotography. I made some really great moon (4k) and planetary shots (1080p), and have now started to take pictures of some of the Messier objects. While I am happy with the results for galaxies and planetary nebulas, I am a bit disappointed with emission nebulas (NGC 7000). This might be due to that I...

I've been reading a few threads asking similarly vague questions lately, and found some of the responses have been quite interesting, so I thought I'd air my query as well. Please skip if you've had enough of such drivel. :) I think my profile lists my current kit, but basically I moved from an E-410 + 14-42, 40-150 and 35 macro to an E-M5 +12-50 almost 3 years ago. Shortly after that, I picked up an E-PM2 with 14-42 and 40-150 kit for $299CDN, which was a no brainer, since I wanted the...

I spent a day at the seaside using my pen and often checking that the images were as I wanted. The next day when I tried loading the images to my Mac I find that the card was blank. Both my machine say the card its blank as does the Pen. Any suggestions as to why this might have happened?

Hey all, so I've been using the mighty but miniature E-PM2 for quite some time alongside the 25 1.8, 45 1.8 as well as the Sigma 19 2.8. The images that I capture are quite fantastic but I'm realizing how much I want a body that has a bit more control and functionality as opposed to the E-PM2. Right now I am considering EM10 or possibly the EP5 kit. I know that the EP5 is much older and the same sensor technology but I like the looks better in addition to receiving the 17 1.8 and VF4 which I...

Somehow I am not able to apply mysets on the PM2. In the PASM mode I go to the menu and store the current setting to myset1, e.g. A-mode with aperture f2. I also assigned the fn-button to myset1. Now I change the aperture to e.g. f4. I press the fn button and see "My1" and the stored aperture "f2" on the screen as long as I keep the fn button pressed. But as soon as I release the fn button the setting is back to the former "f4". Meaning the stored setting is not taken over. Also if I go to...

Hi there. I have a question. Is it possible to use outer microphone without using Sema-1? I was wondering if I can use a MiniUsb->Jack 3.5 converter to connect microphone to camera? Thanks Mazikowiec

I have typically been a Panasonic only consumer. The only Olympus camera I have used before is the modified E-PM2 that I use for astrophotography. Therefore, I haven’t done any experiments with the Olympus Autofocus and I am not that familiar with the menu items. I could really use some help on the following questions. I will try to post a setup video for the camera in the next couple of days but I want to make sure I get everything correct first. Thanks for your help on this. 1. Is there a...

I'm fairly happy with my $100 refurb EPM2 but after buying those beautiful Oly primes I am seeing general softness even with good technique and shutter speeds twice the rule. I'm thinking shutter shock and I'd like a body that has been engineered with no shock in mind. I also have the opportunity to shoot my kids sports (soccer, baseball, tennis) or people getting dragged behind a boat.  Soccer is incredibly tough as the subject distance is changing and the whole scene is chaotic.  Here the...
