Other day i had the Olympus battery in the camera and the cheapo in the grip both were charged the night before took 200 photo's and a 2 and half min video. lasted approx 2 hours with the occasional turn off when  nothing was gonna happen. Few days later just the grip and no extra battery, on standby all the time flash used for 20 or so of the 293 photo's taken and not any movement on the battery indicator. I can not think why the difference anyone got any ideas why? --Taurus excreta cerebrum...

I recently had a friends car broken into while on a trip and lost my omd em5 camera 12-42 kit lens 40-150 kit lens and a 60mm macro. The 60mm I am going to replace but now what to do about the two zooms.  First is the 14-42 zoom. Is the 12-50 a better lens to justify the larger size and few extra bucks?  I seldom use the 40-150 and am not sure if I want to replace it. the reason to do it is that I do use it occasionally and if I don't buy it up front I probably won't. I see there is a digital...

Ever since I sent my OM-D E-M5 back to Olympus for repairs (unrelated, viewfinder cover was cracked, cosmetic damage only) I've noticed dark spots in my images. I've tried several lenses and they consistently come up at f/2.8, so it has to be on the sensor. Upon closer examination the spots match some dust/pollen/scratches on the sensor, which you can kind of make out in the picture below (taken with my phone camera): I've tried removing these things several times with a blower, but they...

Hello everybody! Let me give a short introduction because i am new to this site. Im Paul from Amsterdam and have just started getting in to photography for 2 years now, since i bought the Olympus Epl3 (with 12mm F2 and 45mm f1.8). So its time to upgrade! But is must say we live in confusing times :S. I love Olympus and would like to stick with it, always really liked te OMD EM 5. But now its 2years old, price doesn't seem to drop and seems no update or successor is coming.  Don't want a EM-10...

I came here specifically to look for cameras that could replace my Olympus OM-D E-M5, so that I could continue to use the lenses I bought for that hunk of junk, now that Oly has abandoned its customers. I realize MFT (micro four thirds) isn't a brand, but it IS a lens mount and, as such, I should be able to search by that feature. Why isn't it there?

I want to do some freelensing with my Olympus EM5 (not exactly freelensing, rather a hand-hold-bellows).  I guess I'll use a medium format lens to avoid vignetting, but I'm not sure about the focal lenght.  Any thoughts?  Regards,  Viernes

How do you make a small change to a myset and then save it (as if the options for saving a myset should include "update with current settings")?  The only way I can figure to do it is to (1) 'set' the myset you want to modify, (2) make the change, (3) clear (reset) the myset, and (4) then save it again.  This works for me, but it seems unintuitive and too complex for what should be a simple operation(?)

Hello Just looking for some clarity as I'm going in circles considering my current alternatives. I own an Olympus OMD EM5 but am looking for a camera predominantly for video use. Non-professional but good quality. As well as the kit Oly12-50mm lens I have the 45mm and 17mm f1.8 lenses. I need a camera that is not too steep a learning curve for a relative newbie but that can still produce nice cinematic images. I'm traveling to Sri Lanka later in the year so my mind is partly on something that...

I'm in the process of downsizing to m43 and I've come to a bit of a jam just because of the way things are priced. The 12-40 f2.8 is priced at $999 and the M10 is priced at $649. This makes the lens and body total at ~1650. Now the local camera shop is also doing a deal on a bundle with the M5 and the lens for 1600. So the question is, whether the M10 is worth the $50 extra or are the differences between the two negligible that I could get the M5 and still be happy. I'm noticing that the M5...
