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...

I bought an Olympus PEN EPM2 last year with two kit lenses, the 14-42mm and the 40-150mm. My previous camera was a Canon G12. From the beginning I felt that my picture weren't as sharp as some of the ones I got with the G12. I spent a good amount of time learning to use the new camera and my pictures got better. I just bought the 19mm Sigma prime and the difference in sharpness over the kit lenses is profound. Here's my question. I've seen the 12-50mm kit lens available on eBay for under...

I have been experiencing some noise issues (that were not there before) with my E-PM2 lately: (1) when powering on and (2) when powering down. (1) On power on. When I power on the body, I hear a short "chakak" noise (Not loud, but audible in a room). When a lens (M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8 to be specific) is mounted, I hear additional noise from the lens, which sound like a metal spring being flicked. Similar to this sound, but quieter and mostly the "ding~" vibration sound after the plucking. I am...

Hello, I'm making my first foray into the m4/3 world having just got the E-PM2 with the 14-42 and 40-150 lens kit. I'd like to add a Prime lens and was thinking of getting a legacy OM 50mm 1.8 lens and m4/3 adapter to use with this camera, since the dedicated Prime is not in my budget currently. I would like to get some comments on this combo of E-PM2 with the 50mm if someone has tried it before. How well does it perform for portraits and is it easy to manually focus this lens with the...

Hello, I'm new to the forum, and recently started to really enjoy nature and wildlife photography. Specifically birding. My question pertains to equipment. I have two cameras currently.The first is a nikon d60, the second is an Olympus e-pm2. I'm looking to get a better lens. Which camera do I invest in? Should I buy the 70-300 mm afs Nikkor lens or the 75-300 mm m.zuiko lens for the Olympus. In the future I'm considering a new body to use with that lens. Either an om-d or a new nikon dslr. I...
