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...

Hi I want to shoot off camera using the FL-36R flash as a slave, without the onboard flash triggering. Any suggestions? I can trigger the FL-36R but the onboard also triggers at the same time.  This I want to avoid, any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks in advance.

I have one of these:- http://www.amazon.co.uk/Unlocked-Wireless-Modem-Huawei-E585/dp/B003VHT37U I use it to improve the range of my Eye-Fi card:- http://www.eyefi.com/products/prox2 I am feeding images from an Olympus m43 camera to an Android tablet. The e585 does not have a sim card in it. I have the Android set up to accept the WEP password in the e585. When I take my pictures the Android Eye-Fi software downloads them. Somehow the Eye-Fi card is transmitting to the e585 and the e585 is...

Does anyone have problems with their memory card being renamed "no name" every time it comes out of the camera? With my E-500 and E-30, I used multiple cards and they retained their unique names even if swapped between cameras. With my E-M1 I have tried with three different sdhc cards (given a name while connected to the computer) and upon reloading after the card has been inserted into the camera, it comes back again as "no name"  Could not find a thread related to this issue and I am unsure...

Hi I am thinking on getting an E-M1 as the system now really looks promising with the lens lineup and the upcoming one. 7-14 f/2.812-40 f/2.840-150 f/2.8300 f/4 Now, coming from E-5 and having had all my nice SHG lenses. How would you compare the E-M1 with firmware 2.2 to the E-5 combination? Is AF fast with native lenses?Is AF fast with MMF3 adapted lenses (SHG)Is C-AF more reliable than on E-5?Do SWD lenses now perform better with MMF3 on E-M1 than it did on E-M5? I am thinking on starting...

I recently got this camera from my uncle in Canada and I was really excited to try it out. I fiddled with the manual settings since I learned most of it in school (we had a dedicated photography class). I eventually realized my lenses weren't meant for close shots that much (one lens is 40-150 mm and the other is 14-45 mm). I fiddled with it some more, and I noticed eventually that the aperture reading was blank. it was just f-.- what it says on my viewer  It doesnt matter what mode Im using...
