Hello all, I have been out of the video space for years, but I decided to try my E-M5 for some family watersports video this summer. After some trial and error, I settled on manual focus, and using AEL most of the time, with either my 12-40/28 or 40-150 kit lens (not 2.8!). It was challenging with some rough water conditions making smooth following of the action tough at times. But my biggest disappointment was some pretty awful compression artifacts from the AVC codec, which often fell apart...

Hey guys Last week i bought my first Sony A7 body + kit-lens. I really like the camera, coming from a Fuji X100s and Olympus OMD EM5II. I'm going to Amsterdam soon and I'd like to take some photos of the amazing architecture there. I don't know if I should buy the 24-70mm FE zoom, the FE 28mm or the FE 35mm 2.8. I think 24mm would be wide enough and I could sell the kit-lens if I get the 24-70mm. The 35mm has a great size and maybe I could stitch panoramas for a wider FOV. What do you...

This is a relatively recent problem.   I can originally view the ORF files in preview but when it goes to render from the RAW (a few seconds in), it replaces the RAW with a black image. This occurs on both Aperture and Preview. I am on OS X 10.10.5 Thanks in advance!! --equipment now in Gear List

There seems to be no response and the aperture on the display keeps blinking. I believe, the charts and every description told me that the lens could be used with OMD MFT camera using the MMF3 adapter. Am I missing something?

Hiya Folks, I tried to test both of my third party remotes on my OMD EM5 today, both of which had worked with the unit before but now, no luck:( The Vello FreeWave appeared to do nothing, despite having fresh batteries in both the receiver and remote itself. The Pixel Oppilas meanwhile at least seemed to be in contact with the camera, as you could hear auto focus ranging and locking, but for whatever reason the shutter simply wouldn't fire. One theory I have is that the most recent firmware...

I'd like a rotating and tilting flash with TTL, and it seems like the major options I have are the Neewer MK320, Nissin DI466 and i40, Rokinon D900, and Metz AF2. Any owners of these want to let me know of their experiences with these flashes? This is purely for travelling with the 12-40mm 2.8 lens.

Hi I'm hiking up to the Great Wall of China to photograph at sunrise. I was told that evaluative metering is best for landscape. However now I've been told centred-weighted is better. Is anyone able to clarify please? I have an Olympus Omd em5 & will be using a 12-40mm pro lens. Many thanks

Hi, I had bought a Fotodiox FD to MFT adapter that worked perfectly on my Olympus EPL3, but it focuses beyond infinity on my new OMD EM5. I am wondering if anyone had a good experience with a - preferably inexpensive - FD adapter for OMD EM5. Links would be much appreciated. If you know a quick hack to get things to work, I would also appreciate that.  Thanks.

Hi All, I just had my OMD EM5 MII less than a month. Just today, within seconds, the EVF and the screen discolor, freezes, and the camera stop working. I can't go to the menu settings. The whole camera just freezes and not responding. I didn't drop the camera at all (nor did it I drop it into water) and it was functioning just fine the second before it happened. I'm attaching the last two pictures I took before the camera stop working. Right now, I can't even take pictures, it discolors...
