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've been using a GH2 for about three years and just got a new GX7. The EVF quality is much better (more saturated realistic colors and higher resolution) except for the image size which is much smaller. The GH2 EVF is like looking through a huge picture window, the GX7 looks like the window is far away. So I looked up the EVF magnification numbers for 4 cameras in the DPR reviews and found some interesting things:Camera - - EVF Mag - -...

I have the starship GH3 and I am following the advice for taking images of stars; f3.5 and calculating the shutter speed to be 30 seconds. I am in Manual mode and I have the shutter release fixed, we are on a tripod and I am cold but when I press the release; nothing. I have tried electronic shutter on/off, silent mode on/off and then I went mad and systematically tried all the f/s combinations and I tried in shutter and app priority and I tried flash on/off and even when I set the S to Bulb...

In the next few months I will be going to Botswana to do a bit of camping. The only major problem I will encounter is a lack of electricity. To counter this either I need to spend money on a solar panal recharger to charge up my camera batteries and that will cost me a few hundreds, or put this money towards buying additional batteries.  The way I look at things I will be taking a storage device to store my JPEGS but most of the time this device(ipad) will be off and the only reason why I...

My (well maybe) E-M1 arrived late this afternoon and I have a couple of questions and a few observations.... The way my hand wraps around the grip reminds me of the D7000 grip and Imy hand feels a little crampy.  Worried if this is actually going to be an ergonomic issue after holding the camera for a while. Anyone else feel this and have a solution? On the GH(2,3,4) the monitor screen reverses so there's no danger of damaging the display while it's folded away.  The screen on the E1 is...

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has had experience shooting with a focal reducer of any kind and has actually adapted other lenses to use on a focal reducer. Allow me to explain further if I have not been very clear. I recently got my hands on a Panasonic GH3, having been a T3i/600D shooter for 3 years. I use vintage glass to shoot with (Vivitar 24mm, Mir 1-B, Olympus OM 50mm f/1.4, Helios 44-2, Jupiter 9, Hoya 135mm f/2.8) for a vast array of reasons, the main one being budget. I plan to...

I sat down recently to try and do some tethered shooting with Adobe Lightroom and my GH3 after finding out about tethered shooting.  I think I had know about it before, but never saw the usefulness until I was asked to shoot some products on tabletop.  So I setup my laptop, GH3, and of course lightroom doesn't recognize it.  It doesn't even support cameras outside of Canon/Nikkon (and I think one more).  Turns out...there's no information I can find on this out there other than the...

I've had my GH3 for almost a year now, and I've been very impressed with it's battery life and so I put off the almost $200 battery grip because I never needed it.  I'll be recording a live event here within the next two weeks, however, and I now have a need for it only...I think the battery grip turns out to just be a battery holder.  Which brings up some questions. a: the first just to make sure; is it a battery holder only and has no battery included with it? b: if it is a battery holder...

Hi again; I think this will be my third thread I've started and everyone here has been extremely helpful in the previous two; all have been questions.I'll start off with a bit of backstory, though the first paragraph or so is skippable; I'll do a double line break when I pitch my question so you don't have to pick through words if you don't want to.-So I got into photography (serious photography; there are some android apps that allow you to do some pretty cool things with the on-board camera...
