Hello. After days of researching and testing out different cameras in camera stores, I've narrowed down to two choices: The Olympus OM-D E-M10 ii and the Sony A6000. As an aspiring ethnographic researcher/journalist and a medic in the army, I want to photographically record my experiences.  That being said, I'm avoiding DSLRs as they are too big and bulky in the field. Testing out the two cameras, I noticed that the M10 ii autofocuses much faster and smoother than the A6000. Also, the...

Hi all For a long time now I've been looking to get an UWA lens for landscape shots (much of which might be long exposures) and to a lesser extent architecture. It's a lens that in hindsight I sorely missed during my European trip last year. So looking for some views on the offerings available, basically tossing up between the following, noting that one of them is *gasp* not a m43 lens.... - Pany 7-14 f4 - seems fairly expensive, is it an issue on Oly bodies? - Olympus 9-18 - nice size! IQ? -...

My E-M1 used to display the orange and blue colors for highlight warning.  But now, pressing the info button does bring that mode up.  I can get the histogram and the levelers, but not the highlight/shadow warning colors.  I need this for a demonstration I'm doing for a class this Saturday.  Thanks!

I've only had my PL 100-400 a couple weeks but have had it out on several shoots. Originally I was using both IBIS and OIS (I thought) as I had (in menu) OIS turned off so actually just using IBIS and when I nailed focus the subject was sharp except in some (too many) there was bad near vertical streaking in the bokeh-- about 75-85 degrees up and down. It's very distinct. On another shoot, I had turned EM1 access to OIS but still left IBIS on but got the same results, but not on all photos--...

I bit the bullet and picked up a very gently used E-M1 + HLD7 grip for a great price and spent some time going through the menus and setting it up. Haven't taken a single picture yet, but that's coming! 😀 I got used to shooting my E-M5 using the ETTR method that was described here long ago and also noting that normal exposures sans ETTR were almost always underexposed by 2/3 stop or so. I went about setting the E-M1 up in a similar fashion for ETTR, but want to ask the community a couple...

Hi,  Just setting up a new EM1 and have almost everything 'fixed' but when I attempted to set up the wifi connection to my phone(no problems with my old EM10), everything in the PLAYBACK MENU except CORRECT IMAGE DIRECTION/ CAMERA ROTATION is now greyed out; I can't access CONNECTION TO SMARTPHONE.  Anyone have any ideas what settings might be blocking this now?  I REALLY don't want to have to go back and do a complete reset and start all over again!  Btw, I did spend a lot of time agonizing...

Hello, Some help needed with which one of these to go for. Come September I’m treating myself to one of these (reward for completing my second degree (mature student)). Problem I’m having is that I’m struggling to choose between them. Currently have a Canon S100 which I exclusively use in M mode and looking to upgrade. Fancy interchangeable lenses and a larger sensor. I have previously always lusted over one of the Olympus line-up due to the 5 axis IBIS and retro good looks. However with the...

Hi all. This is my first forum post here as I could not find help now anywhere else. I have been occasional reader for a year since I purchased OM-D E-M1 (updated and upgraded). I have a problem and it is about timelapse timer. I set the camera on tripod etc. I disable all the sleep and auto power off functions and then I set camera to do timelapse at 2min 30 second periods.  But I can not get camera to finish the timelapse. It takes about 150 frames and then it just powers off. I have the...

I've been a bit frustrated with my success of capturing my kids and dog on my e-m10 and have thought about upgrading to the new GX80/85 with it's improved AF and 4k photo capture, to help with capture more action shots (football etc) I've also seen that the e-m1 is similar priced second hand and wondering if that is a better option? Thanks

I'm about to travel to London for a week and I'm planning on shooting some outdoor sports when I 'm there.  I plan to use my E-M1 + 50-200mm+MMF-3.  In similar conditions a few weeks ago, my VF started fogging up, but I saw some people with N/C gear with some rain covers.   Are these useful?  Am I damaging my equipment?
