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...
Hi Folks, I picked up a FlashAir card to go with my new XZ-2 with a view to using my phone as a remote commander, via the Remote Control function in the Olympus Image Share app. I've had a ton of fun just getting the FlashAir to show up on my list of WiFi networks but now that I've achieved that, it seems like all I can do is import pics. Silly me for thinking that the only real value of pairing the XZ-2 with a FlashAir card is so as to have a Remote Control built into my phone for whenever...
Hi Folks, Just picked up a reconditioned XZ-2 & wanted to check the shutter count but can't seem to find anything on that. Can find it for all the PENs, the XZ-1, etc. but NOT the XZ-2. There is a ton of advice suggesting that this method may work on the XZ-2 but it doesn't so if anyone truly in the know can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Hi, I've been on a couple of trips to various cities and used a smartphone to take photos with. On these trips I liked taking photos but I felt my smartphone was lacking (or maybe it is just me that isn't good enough). I mostly took photos of the various sights in the cities, overview of the city or in the city parks but also if I found something that caught my eye and I thought was interesting. I have no knowledge in photography and I'm using this as a way to figure out how big my interest...
Hi everyone I bought the Olympus e-PM2 a couple of days ago, with the kit lens (M.Zuiko 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 II R). I wasn't planning on buying a camera so hadn't done a lot of research, but a quick google in the store showed very good reviews, and the camera was half price, so i bit the bullet. Since then i've been really disappointed with the performance and am considering trying to return the camera - any photos where something is moving is blurred - even in the manual settings, and i can't...
Hi! I'm an owner of two OM-D E-M1s with battery grips, two E-PM2s and one E-PL5 (it's a matter of another topic why so many cameras). Today I bought a GX7 because I desperately need something to speed up my autofocusing with my 45mm f1.8, 75mm f1.8 and 35-100 f2.8 in dim light. I was just about to buy the Panasonic 42.5mm f1.2 but then I tested it on the GX7 as well as on my E-PL5 and found that the former is a killer in therms of AF speed. I'm used to working with auto ISO in A mode. I set a...
Hi all What I mean by performance is in regards to the focusing motor(s). Is it loud enough to be heard during a video recording? Also, because of the size of the E-PM2 will the auto-focus motor(s) of the PL 25 cause the camera to literally shake (or rattle) while filming? Many thanks!!
Hello all, I will try to keep it short. For a while we used a point and shoot and were relatively happy. Then the newer Iphone came along which shot shot equal to better pictures. We were fine with that until we had a baby and took some pictures and got them developed and noticed that they sucked. Or maybe I suck at taking pictures either way. So that brings me to a hunt for a new camera. I basically want to be able to take good pictures and occasional videos. I wanted better pictures than...
