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...

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...
