Hi all, I am in love with the 4/3 system, and have been using it intensively for both video and photo since Christmas. I had a nikon cam for a year but sold because the video was just not up to scratch, and it was so big I never wanted to take it anywhere. I am a journalism student but I have a part time gig shooting mud runs etc, both photo and video, as well as journalism jobs in all sorts of conditions (usually low light indoors). I have a G6, the 20 1.7, 14-42 and the 45-150 I was...

I am setting up my custom sets and was wondering why the aspect ratio of the JPEG and RAW settings are not respected? I guess I'm used to my E-M1 remembering the 4 custom MySets with most all parameters. Sometimes I like to shoot JPEG only when doing more 'snapshot' like pics, but then want to reset to my default of RAW+JPEG 3:2. Is this something I'm missing?

Firmware 3 seems to have changed lots of things regarding video recording on the E-M1. I remember that the 2x magnification used to work while shooting video. I tried doing it today to no avail, whether I was shooting video from stills modes or from the dedicated movie mode. Is someone of you able to make it work? --http://betterfamilyphotos.blogspot.com

Hi all. I've been shooting my son and daughter's indoor performances (gymnastics, plays, etc) with an E-M1 and the 40-150/4-5.6 for a little while.  The results aren't bad, but I'd love a faster lens to be able to shoot a few stops faster at the expense of AF. Something like a 135/2 would be great.  It seems the old Nikon AIS can be had for reasonable  price considering it translates to a 270/2 on m43. Any other suggestions of other lenses to consider?   Thanks! -----...

Hi everyone, I am currently looking at getting a secondary camera as a backup/complement to my full frame DSLR. I have a Sony A5100 that has been filling this role, but I am interested in switching to Micro Four Thirds for the greater crop factor, as I would like to better take photos of birds. (Mostly stationary, I know AF speed issues will come into play in budget cameras). My other main use is for legacy manual lenses, so focus peaking is a must for me. I am essentially looking to trade my...

For my E-M1 and 12-40mm (62mm thread) I purchased the below. I have no idea i this is going to work. Thoughts? I probably should have asked before purchasing it! I didn't have enough cash for the Lee Filter system, probably would have ended up a ton, the Lee 10 Stop ND Big Stopper is around $150 USD by itself. 1. Cokin CBP400A P-Series holder 2. Hitech 85x110MM Hard Grad ND Filters (0.3, 0.6, 0.9) - 1 stop, 2 stop, 3 stop 3. Haida Slim Pro II MC 77mm ND Filter 3.0 (10 Stop) 4. Haida Slim Pro...

I'm going to be going on a camping trip to the bottom of the Grand Canyon for four days to see the Havasupai and other falls. I have an OMD-EM1 and am wondering how many batteries I might need, given that I will not have any access to electricity to recharge. I currently have 6 batteries, but I'm wondering if I might need more. Any thoughts?

I have a strange problemw with the Olympus Capture software for the OMD-EM1.  When the camera is tethered and I shoot a picture in portrait mode, the live view is oriented correctly but the Rec View window shows the finished picture in landscape orientation (i.e., rotated 90 degrees). I can't figure out how to fix it.  I have contacted Olympus, but no response.  Thanks for any help.
