I currently use a Panasonic GH3 for both video and stills but mainly for video. My original intention was to start saving up for the GH4 but I found someone looking to sell his rarely used OM-D E-M5 (body) for $350 which I think would be a great walk-around camera for stills. Do I really need it at the moment? Mhmm not really but for $350? What do you guys think? --- YK

Except for the difference in maximum aperture at all focal lengths, is there a big difference in image quality between the two, at say f4.0-f5.6 or so?

Hey guys. I’m a beginner photographer who shoots with an Olympus OMD EM5. I’m interested in buying my first off camera flash to get into what I think is called strobist photography? I’ve tried to do some research but in the end I’m still uncertain on how to go about deciding which flashgun I should invest in first and which accessories I should buy with it. I was hoping fellow M43 users who’re already using off camera flashes could advise me on this. I see that there are flashes as cheap as...

My beloved OMD suffered a brief, but deadly kiss with a metal pole. The result being that screen glass is shattered and the display ain't working. Judging by the construction, the panel should be fairly easy to change, but I can't find a replacement LCD (or more correctly, OLED) panel. The site most reffered to in similar posts lists it out of stock. So, does anyone know where I would be able to order a genuine replacement LCD panel for E.M5? -----

I am just learning to use a new used OM-D E-5 with the 12-50mm zoom leans.  I would like to set it to certain focal lengths in order to compare the camera with others I own. For example, set it to the 35mm equivalent of 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, or 90mm.  Is there any way to get the camera or the lens to indicate what focal length it is zoomed to?

Will a YONGNUO YN-622C-TX ETTL with a YN560 IV set as master be able to trigger YN560II via optical as slaves... I already own the YN560II (3 of them) and I trigger with non yongnuo rf-triggers on manual... So if I get the 622C-TX and sync RF to the 560 IV and set power for various groups... will the 560IV do a pre-flash optical out and trigger / set the power on the 560II... or will I have to get the YN-622 to adjust values on groups or individual speedlights... one other thing... I shoot a...

Dear all, (1) I am looking for a microphone to attach to my OM-D E-M5 to better record sound along with video. I wrote to B&H and, as usual, received a rapid response . They noted that Olympus has a product  http://bhpho.to/1zSKjx2    (SEMA-1, $55))   but recommended a Rode microphone ($200): http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/744768-REG/Rode_VIDEOMIC_PRO_VideoMic_Pro_Compact_Shotgun.html At $200, the price tag is a bit high, but maybe it is worth it. Has anyone used the Rode? Any...

Hello, I have just got my long awaited 40-150 2.8 PRO. I live with OM-D E-M5 and do not think about changing it at the time being. First thing that I noticed is that image stabilization at the long end is not as efficient as I expected. It looks like the body is not able to absorb minor high-frequency jitter.The shaking is quite heavy + sharp and what is interesting it is mostly horizontally oriented. I tried all IS modes 1-3, Shutter button half pressed - No difference. I turned off IS and I...

Hi, Could someone who has the E-M5 wrapping case from Olympus tell me how bulky it is, and how easy it is to use. Ie is it fast to get the camera in and out? Up to now I always travel light with my E-M5 wrapped in a microfiber cloth and in the top of my bag. So wondering if the wrapping case is a better solution. Cheers, Menno

My EM5 has a message displayed "No Connection" when I turn it on (pg 101 in manual). Probably related to HDMI cable connection, although when I use the USB/Multi cable connection and select "print" the same message appears. It is impossible to remove... except temporarily, when I select Yes/OK option it goes away for a couple of seconds and then reappears, when I select Cancel < the screen goes blank and does not reappear until I power off/on. I used the USB cable connection, which seems to...
