Hi all, Can anyone here comment on how much of an advantage moving to an E-m1 keeping my 50-200 would be for this particular shooting situation: It looks like I will be going to Estonia in early June and spending a couple of nights in wildlife hides in woodland in hope of seeing bears, and other mammals. I believe we'd be shooting through glass and looking at the hours of daylight, sunrise is around 4.15 and sunset around 22.30 with nautical twilight for the rest of the night. It will be just...

Hi guys, I'm pretty new to NX1 so quite possibly I'm doing something wrong. I cannot get the geo tagging feature working. The problem is in Longitude which always gets that absurd value (4.29497e+009, 4.29497e+009' 4294967266.000000" East). Check the screenshot. My smartphone is an Android Kit Kat one (bq Aquaris E5 4G). What I do is keeping the GPS always running through GPS Keeper Lite app  I can confirm that GPS status in the phone is OK with Latitude showing correct values (GPS Status &...

I recently purchased a very nice used E-510 . I also bought an Olympus M+ 2gb xD card to try Panorama mode. When I try to put the camera in that mode I get an error message that says "Panorama xD card required". I have the card in the camera and it is selected. I can record pictures on it so I know it works but the camera does not recognize it for panorama mode. Does anyone have any idea what is wrong?

Hey All, I'm graduating high school this year, and I haven't used my Olympus E-510 DSLR in a little over a year. I put a lot of time and money into the camera (battery grip, old glass 50mm macro, new 300mm telephoto, kit lens, adapter for the old lens), but fell out of my habit when I moved from San Diego to Baton Rouge. I'm thinking about selling, but I am not sure where to start, or even if I should expect to be able to sell an used entry-level DSLR. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly...

My GH2 is having a hard time using the manual focus on a few 4/3 lenses. The Olympus Digital 35 mm 1:3.5 macro + the E-500 kit lens won't focus. Any advice? Is there a suggested setting for this to work? Here's the adaptor I have : http://www.ebay.com/itm/171462657800?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

My E5, after a lens change (14-42 EZ to 17mm 1.8) does not turn on anymore. I get a lighted EVF, no live view or menus, only a little click. Pressing the shutter produces, not always, a sort of flash in the EVF and nothing else. Battery OK, Usb cable and assorted menus (storage...) OK and working, firmware OK. Same behavior with my other lenses, primes and zooms Turning the camera off, the EVF remains lighted (but no image) until I press the shutter (with the little flash (see above). Any...

May be this is an old question but at the moment I'm trying to make a choice. I have a Fuji X10 which delivers nice pics but it has some flaws which make that I don't want to take it with me on a biketour of 3000 kilometer along river Danube, next April en May. I have several options: Canon G16, okay, but deal breaker is its completely useless OVF; I really hate taking pictures from LCD. That means I absolutely want a compact camera with EVF. On the bike a dSLR isn't very convenient, fot...

Mostly a lurker, but always desiring to advance. If I go for a bargain, it would be for the OMD 10, or the original 5. Then there is the MkII when it comes down in price. I am an average photographer who always desires to do better, so the obvious choice would be the lower cost camera. Still, gear lust makes me want the MkII. Is the new MkII worth the wait, or go for the lower priced option now ...and which one?                                  (I would buy refurb/used/open box) Opinions...
