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!!

I know the E-PM2 has a touchscreen, but has anyone tried an LCD viewfinder with it ?I'm curious about the combination and I'm wondering if the physical controls are enough to operate properly with an LCD viewfinder in place.Thanks in advance for info.

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...

I'm planning to buy E-PM2 and VF-2 or VF-4. I have searched answers to these questions and read the manual, but still confused. In single focus point mode, how do I re-center the focus point? Especially if I'm looking throught VF-2 and want the focus point to jump back to the center and don't want to take my eye out of VF-2. When in aperture priority mode, can I set minimum shutter speed for auto ISO? How easy it is to change shooting modes, in your opinion? Will I miss the mode dial?

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.
