Hi all I am currently an Olympus m43 user and quite heavily invested in that system (EM1, EM10 and more than enough lenses). I have recently been seeing a lot work coming out of Fuji cameras and impressed by the color rendition and general 'look' of the images including OOF areas. I also think noise is better controlled in Fuji. As such I've been considering stepping into Fuji in addition to my Oly gear. So far I've had a play (in shop so pretty limited) with an X100T and XT-1. Originally I...

I've been using a backpack for almost a year now. I love my LowePro Hatchback 22L, although it started to get cramped. The photo gear section not longer holds everything I need, and I keep putting stuff on the sides of it, breaking the whole point of having a separate section. And the top part, which is supposed to be for non photo related stuff, I have to use it to put the big Yongnuo flash, and a Peak Design field pouch, filled with filters, flash gels and the x-rite passport, among other...

Wondering if I could get some opinions on this: I'm moving to Seattle in the next few months, and am a little concerned about the rain!  Specifically, I've invested a bit in m4/3 gear (see my gear list, but we're talking an E-M10 and 5 lenses), NONE of which is advertised as actually weather sealed/weatherproof.  And while I've certainly exposed my current gear and former gear (Nikon DX) to the elements from time to time, I've been pretty cautious around the wet stuff, usually ducking my...

I have a 5 mk 2 and love it. I'm in the process of persuading my partner to leap from Canon to Olympus too so we can share lenses etc. We do most of our photos travelling (often with just carry on luggage) and some light birding. I'd always thought if the EM10 mk 2 had been out I'd have saved $$$ and bought that instead. Now I'm wondering. With the different battery, I'd have to get another spare. That's $80. Feels way better with the grip $60. Maybe a compact travel charger that'll do both...

Wish to move from an ASP-C dSLR to M4/3 camera. I got my mind set on either the Olympus E-M10 II or Panasonic G7. The GX7 style doesn't appeal much to me. I come to realize that both cameras got their strengths and weaknesses. Wish to make a decision so I can start shooting some photos. I've absorbed little bits of information from numerous user experiences, skimmed through a few reviews and read some blogs such as those by Robin Wong. Best of all, I went to a store to handle both cameras for...

Hi! I am looking to get into photography and I liked the a5100 for myself. However, from all the reviews I read and watched, I understand that this camera is best used in auto mode and changing iso and exposure for example is a pain. I was wondering if some of the owners of this camera could tell me whether that is true or not. Im worried that if I dont have easy access to controls, i will stick to auto most of the time and that would undermine my photography learning. Would i be better off...

Hello all, first time poster! I received an E-M10 for the holidays. My first venture into serious digital photography after hanging up my Canon F-1 gear several years ago! I love this camera, kit came with 14-42 IIR & a 40-150 as described in subject. The Zuiko 40-150 is at oly Repair right now. I experience a slight crunching, grind when moving the zoom barrel from 70 to 150. It is slight, can only be felt when lens is mounted to the camera, but you can feel it is not smooth as should be. I...

I have noticed on my E-M10 II that the image file names follow a somewhat strange sequence. The file names generated so far have all been of the form P1dd0nnn, where dd seems to be the day of the month and nnn is a sequence number counting up from 001. The sequence number may be 4 digits, but I haven't yet taken 1000 shots so it hasn't got far enough for me to see. Why would the day of the month be used as part of the file name? Have I got it wrong? I'm also a bit disconcerted to see that...

I just got the f.28 40-150 pro lens. (It's fantastic). But it seems that one feature I do use sometimes, where you touch the screen in the place you want to focus and shoot, no longer works. Instead the touch-to-shoot option switches to off and instead a slider appears that lets me adjust the magnification of... something. Not sure what. Is this is a feature or a bug? First time asking a question, so thanks in advance. I searched the forum and didn't see an answer.

The E-M10 II has three shutter modes: (1) normal: fully mechanical, (2) anti-shock: electronic first curtain and mechanical second curtain, (3) silent: fully electronic. As far as I can see, it should be preferable to use Mode 2 always in preference to Mode 1 as Mode 2 avoids shutter shock at speeds below 1/320s. Is this correct, or are there ever any advantages in using the fully mechanical shutter?
