Hi,  Has anyone experienced this: Sometime when I switch on the camera, the screen and evf stay black, except for all control indicators, they operate normally. I cannot take a picture, but other buttons/menu's work. Only the aperture indicator lists '-.-'. It looks like some mechanical/electronical problem with the aperture. Switching the camera on/off a couple of times, removing the battery, sometime makes it go away. Anybody else experienced the same problem? What did you do to fix it? Or...

Flash Manual settings from Super Control Panel on my E-M1 using flash FL600R is grayed out but it's active on my small flash which came bundled with the camera. Is it normal or some kind of camera's malfunction?

Well, simple question really as I was admiring a lens I want to buy and they suggested a UV filter... I come from the Canon system and I had UV filters on my lenses and everyone swore to that... Now I have a Olympus OM-D E-M1 with the 12-40 f2.8 (no filter on) and I was looking at the 40-150 f4.0-5.6 since the f2.8 is a bit too rich for me, so the cheap one should be a good enough start until I can save up for the faster one if I decide I really need it but then comes the big questions and I...

Hey, I have been looking into getting some spare batteries and stumbled upon these 2100mAh, I live in china and found these on the local ebay. Has anyone got experience, using third party batteries? Or would you use them at all? Can they damage electronics of the camera? link for the battery  http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.10.hqqRRU&id=15150930776&ad_id=&am_id=&cm_id=140105335569ed55e27b&pm_id=&abbucket=15

Hi, I'm struggling to work out how to preview images full screen at 1x magnification on the EM5 and EM1 LCD.  I understand how to set the default zoom to 2x, 3 x etc. by rotating the rear dial during preview mode, but 1x isn't an option. Touching the initial screen in preview mode gives the result I want except the zoom slider and toolbar at the bottom obstruct the view. Is there a simple way to display a full screen image without overlaid info and tools? thanks

Hi folks-- Newbie here, so hi! I'm a journalist, though I trained as a photog back in film days in college. I work for a monthly glossy lifestyle/arts mag and an alt-weekly paper, and I'm moving more beyond writing to include my own photography. I am looking to invest $500-700 in a new camera that can create high-quality images for print -- mostly shots of people, landscape, restaurants and food. After lots of research, my choices have come down to 3: Olympus OM-D E-M10 Nikon D3300 Sony...

I bought a e-m1 model in fumfie.com and us warranty card is not included. So I registered the camera through olympus usa website. I wonder it is us model or not even though fumfie saleman said it is us model. One reason I'm suspicious about this camera is that initial video setting was PAL instead of NTSC. I don't think us model's video setting should be PAL. one quick question. Do I know where is the origin market of this camera with camera serial number?  Thank you ahead, Merry Christmas!!!

I'm thinking seriously about purchasing the OM-D E-M1. I really like almost everything about it but in looking at images taken with the camera that appear on the internet, the colors seem rather washed out. As one individual noted in this forum, the E-M1 appears to lean heavily toward the reds. Maybe I'm just not looking at the right places for decent images. Many of the shots I've seen were taken in winter or indoors. Has anyone else noticed this problem? Before purchasing the camera, I'd...

Hi everyone,First post here.Without a lens, the camera shoots at 10 fps (H Sequential).But when I put on my 12-40mm, it "sounds" like it's much slower than 10 fps.Is the "10 fps" a fixed number or a maximum?Would low amounts of light affect the burst speed?Would Rls Priority affect the burst speed as well?Thanks!
