I am currently travelling in Thailand, looking forward to taking some photos of the Thai new year festival where everyone soaks everyone else with buckets of water and water guns, however; I have just noticed that I have lost the rubber gasket seals off the nottom of my E-M5!   I had already lost one of the gaskets but had the one that came with my battery grip, but now I've lost both so in order for my camera to continue to be weather sealed i have to use both parts of the grip... which is a...

Currently in Singapore 11 weeks into 30 week travels and have been waiting to get here to buy some new gear.  What I've found, and really, really want the Olympus 12-40 f2.8 PRO & Olympus 25 f1.8, which will cost me around £800 (12-40 on its own in UK costs £900).  To (partly) fund the new lenses I plan to sell my Olympus 12-50 and Pamasonic 14 f2.5. However, after a few questions in the shop (and with a massive grin on my face) I found out that if I buy the 12-40 as a kit on a new E-M5 or...

I had this before I sent my OM D-EM5 in to Oly for repair and they reset it to some default. I just want to keep my focus point in the center and for it to not move when I might inadvertently touch a button on the controller.  How do I set this up?  I can't seem to find it in the menus. thanks

Hi, my EM5 EVF Auto switch is not working well. If I turn on the camera, LCD screen works well, when it detects my eye(or anything) close, it switches to EVF, but when I put my eye away, the EVF remains on and the LCD keeps the black screen. It doesn't go back to LCD. I remember it used to work well, but I'm not sure if the firmware upgrade caused this. If I disable auto switch, I can go from LCD to EVF and viceversa without problem.  Any idea about how to solve it?  I have firmware 2.0,  and...

I am having a very hard time choosing a camera for my birthday gift (from my husband).  I have a Nikon D7000 which I got 2-3 years ago after upgrading from the D40.  I love the pictures but it is so very heavy and I get tired of lugging it around.  I am mainly a landscape photographer, but I am about to have a baby in 6 wks, so I want to have something portable that I can carry around in my purse for all of those spontaneous photo ops.  I want good quality images that I can enlarge to at...

In Lightroom 5.3, I boosted Exposure by 3.4 and slid the clarity, vibrance and saturation sliders all the way to 100 to make this effect more prominent, but it was also visible with the sliders set to 0. I used my new Nissin Di466 flash for this photo (just playing around outdoors at night with the new flash to see what it can do). I had the built-in Fresnel diffuser covering the flash when I took the photo. If you look closely at the top corners of the image, bands seem to continue into the...

[background]I'm trying to save and justify getting a "system" camera since I sold my Canon 1D2 and a bag of lenses a 6 ago to pay the bills. Things are better now, but today I borrowed a Canon T2i and a few lenses. I was drawn to the 50/1.8, looking for shallow DOF when shooting kindergarten graduation individual portraits outside. My experience was at close inspection the focus is generally front-focused and I had no way to check in the field, and definitely not without snapping first. I...

Looking for recommended external battery solutions for Olympus OMD cameras (I have E-M5 now and have ordered E-M1 to arrive later this week). I have the Olympus HLD-6 grip, and will order the HLD-7 grip eventually. But I am looking for a solution which will last all day.I have Panasonic cameras (GH3, G5, FZ200, FZ150) and use the corresponding coupler (e.g. DMW-DCC12 DC coupler for GH3) with an external battery (e.g. Tekkeon myPower ALL Plus MP3450i Battery (5-19V) which outputs 8.4V DC for...

In 7 months time I'll be leaving for an 18 month world packing packing trip and can't decide what lenses to take. The trip is going to be a mix of everything (hiking in the Himalayas, European cities, snowboarding in Japan, SE Asia....) as will my photos.  At the moment I'm taking my EM5 with the 12-40mm and the 9mm fish eye body cap (takes up no space and is cheap). I want to take one more prime with me, the 45mm or the 75mm? I don't want to take both because I'm backpacking and weight/space...

I am interested in acquiring the Panasonic 14-42ii lens, which was released in 2013, to use with my Olympus OM-D E-M5.  However, I want to be able to use it without having both image stabilization systems (IBIS and OIS) operating simultaneously, and I would want to use it with the E-M5's IBIS as the active stabilization system.  The Panasonic 14-42ii does not have an on/off switch to manage its stabilization system, and the E-M5 does not have a menu item like my E-PL5 to control which...
