I have had my E-M1 for a just short while and am ready to learn how to control it better. I've bought Gary Friedman's book but am having problems accessing some of the menu options he recommends entering settings for - some of them are greyed out (actually blue) as against the options I can access which are crisp white.  I thought that I might have inadvertently changed some factory settings so I did a full reset/myset in shooting menu 1 but that didn't seem to change anything. One example -...

Have of you encountered overexposed photographs from using Metz flashes with TTL? Have been searching on and off over the course of the last few weeks. Many of the threads I found were mostly users experiencing underexposured images with TTL flash (mostly with Oly flash though). Tests were conducted with the flash on the hot shoe, fill-in flash. Using manual mode, camera metering seems to indicate correct exposure. I've tried a few methods, wall bounce, with diffuser.. Even setting FEC down 1...

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...

While Olympus, Panasonic, and others have done a pretty job of covering most of the bases for µ43 lenses with primes and zooms, there are still a few niches that aren't filled.  What's on your list of lenses that don't exist for this mount, but you'd buy if they existed?  Note that I'm thinking of realistic things here, not things that are physically and/or economically impossible (i.e. "a 7-400mm constant f1.0, weighing 200g, and costing $100" would not be realistic.) My list: 25mm f1.4,...

I have looked in my .ORF and .JPG files from my Olympus E-M1 and 12-40mm f2.8.  The Camera maker and model are there, but the following is not: - Lens maker - Lens model - Flash maker - Flash model - Camera serial number - Lens serial number I saw in an earlier thread, when someone lost their serial number, some users told him to look in the Exif or Metadata and that it should be there.  I have searched the manual and the menus and I cannot find anywhere to change the Exif data, other than...

Quick question. For EM1 and EM10 users, do you all set ISO to Low as standard? Is there any drawback in this setting?? Not sure why they call it Low as opposed to 100 and why it's not set as default. Thanks again Pepyn --Flickr stream at https://www.flickr.com/photos/126284142@N04/

Hi I am right now trying to choose between what lenses, aside from the zoom lens I would like to get. I already decided on the macro, but I still have my doubts about which 42,5mm to take. Voigtländer Nocton 42,5mm f/0.95 or Panasonic/Leica Nocticron 42,5mm f/1.2 Does E-M1 have AF confirm when using MF lenses? Thanks for your feedback --http://www.muehlemann-pix.chhttp://www.fotocommunity.de/pc/pc/mypics/1125341

After using Panasonic bodies for some years, I have just bought the EM1, my first Olympus. Most of the available shutter release cables seem to have a very large handle, about as long as my palm is wide.  I prefer something small like the Panasonic, which is smaller than my little finger. Has anyone found a small shutter release cable for the EM1 and other Olympus M43 cameras? --EricWhen the light is gone, the picture is gone ....

Hi all I'll be overseas for a 4 month trip this year and keen to take as many photos as I can. Been learning m43 recently (see flickr stream) after having acquired an EM10 with 12-40 pro and 60 (2.8) macro. The 12-40 is a great lens and is on the camera 90% of the time. I also wanted a UWA lens like the upcoming 7-14 but the price-use ratio is turning me away. Wish there was a good prime at say 8mm but unfortunately not. Anyway I'm off topic - I find that even though it's relatively light kit...

I recently got a Panasonic X920. I do like it, even if I don't think it's as amazing as some people think it is, since I'm judging it against video quality I'm used to, such as from the Canon 5D Mark III and Olympus E-M1 (both using much larger sensors). I got the X920 mainly to replace my Canon HF11, and it is certainly much better than the HF11 (especially in low-light), so for that purpose, I'm fairly satisfied, but it can't compete against the larger sensor cameras I have in terms of...
