Hi, Tested calibration of my E-5 using the "Dot" method. I started of by testing just using the center focus point (which I use the most) and did get some improvement so happy with the results. Now the question on my mind is what to do with all the other points, is it worth while to calibrate them separately? Did anyone actually go thru the process of individually testing all focus points? If you did, did you get (significantly) different calibration values for the other calibration...

I got an OMD EM1 because my E-500 broke. But I kind of miss the characteristic blue color of E-500. I can get E-500 like color rendition from EM1 by playing around with RAW files. I wonder whether there are some camera settings I can set in the EM1, which can help me to get that E-500 colors, in out of the camera JPEGs from EM1. Best regards Buddika

I would like to try my hand at astrophotography with my E-510.  How can I keep my shutter open indefinitely?  I don't have a remote nor a shutter cable.  I was thinking of mounting the camera on a tripod, placing a piece of cardboard over the lens, opening up the shutter for as long as I wanted to, then replacing the cardboard over the lens and then closing the shutter.  Does anyone know how I can do this with this camera?  Thanks

Currently I do have E-520 which mostly I use with Sigma 50-500 lense. I would like to get used with low mileage either E-3 or E-5. E-3 body I could get for ~ $300 E-5 would be ~800 or more. Any suggestion? reasons? Thanks in advance.

I am using a Nikon D90 atm, BUT, I've set it at 12.2 megapixels yet when I open even the raw file in PS its pixelated beyond comprehension, what on earth have I done wrong? (it has grain and that ok from the low liught, but its not noise, just horrid pixelisation, my Olympus E-300 and E-500 shoot better quality than the D90. Mind you, I've never used a Nikon before and finding navigating a little hard. So my question is this, should I stick with the Nkion D90? Or would my Olympus E-500 be ok...

Its been a long time since I posted here...actually posted anywhere. I was one of the Oly users that switched after about the 2nd gen of micro 4/3rds to a Nikon system and with the exception of a brief time with an E-PL2 kit, I haven't touched an Oly DSLR in the last 5 years. Nonetheless, DR limitations and all.... the E-510 was and still is my favorite machines certain things. I recently picked one up on ebay with just a basic kit lens for occasional use and really quite like it....but I...

I read many good things about the E-510 but am  a little confused about the suggested workaround settings to get optimum results. First, some articles suggest adjust EV to -3 for underexposure prevention, and some make no mention of this. Secondly, some people suggest using the Natural Picture Mode with Noise Filter Off or Low, and Sharpness and Contrast set at -2, or as some say Sharpness -1 and Contrast 0. From those of you who have used the camera, what settings have you found work best...

I damaged this camera.  It was so dependable, but I cannot decide how to replace it with a retired slim budget.  I wonder about the new M-10 .. But there was something so solid and dependable about the E-510 . Now, my pictures are grandchildren and pets with flowers here and there -- both fast moving objects with continual reliable focusing and a lot of indoor shooting. .. I have no one to advise me now, so I am just "stuck" in reading reviews and forums.  Someone please give me ideas. I...

Good afternoon all, Having got into Mft through a secondhand EP-3 to complement my wonderful E5, I fell in love with the primes. I have the Oly 45mm f1.8, a little marvel, and the 75mm F1.8, an amazing piece of kit, complete with the Pana 14 F2.5!  I have now taken the plunge and just bought an E-M1 c/w 12-40mm.   I am still learning, but this camera is already delighting me, and confusing me, and giving me plenty to learn!  :-)   My question:  I am really taken with the idea of supplementing...
