So the plate that barely worked with my EM-5 doesn't work with my mk II. Any suggestions? This looks like the way to go... Jobu Design Extra Small Surefoot Plate Are there better options? .75"x1.5"

Hey, First of I was just about to ditch my Pentax gear and change to Olympus. Im quite disappointed with my K5iis even though its a great camera. The autofocus is just not working for me as well as id like it to and the size of the camera meant i could never really take in anywhere. So obviously the next close thing would be the Olympus em5 and with the mark 2 coming out I thought that would be the way to go. I just don't really want to sell all my beloved Pentax gear and the original em5 is...

Hello, I am moving up from advanced point and shoot Nikons and trying to take my photo/video skills to a higher level.  I have tried the Nikon 5500 and 7100 and the Canon 70d - all of which are heavy and loud (shutter-wise).  I was pointed to the mirrorless and checked out Sony A7s (too expensive for me) and the Sony a77ii - which had all the features but weighs a ton and is designed for someone with HUGE hands - I couldn't touch half the buttons with my reach on it.   I learned about the...

I noticed last night when taking a picture in a dimly lit room, that my M5 was flashing the ISO number 4000 when I had it set to Auto ISO. But the upper limit was 25600! The manual says it flashes when it cannot take a good photo with that ISO. Is this a bug in the software, or do you know of a good explanation? It took a decent picture and reported 4000 ISO in the EXIF.

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?
