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...

How exactly does Face priority AF/pupil detection AF work on EM-5? What's with these white/green borders? How do I know when the camera has actually focused on the eyes? The manual says: "• When the camera focuses on the face in the white border, the border will turn green. • If the camera is able to detect the subject’s eyes, it will display a green frame over the selected eye. (pupil detection AF)." The thing is when I see the white border over the face, I press shutter release half way...

What does this indicator mean on the EM5? My sister is currently at a wedding and is worried about this symbol showing up whilst she is using video mode. She says it only shows on video mode, it blinks orange showing low battery icon with an small arrow pointing to an sd card. This shows whilst recording video, but on picture mode and all other modes the battery indicator is full. She has also tried swapping batteries and it does the sam thing on video mode, I was wondering if anyone could...

Hi guys, I've been using my EM5 for a couple of months now and I think IS has stopped working. There is still this constant quiet hum when the camera is on but when you half-press the shutter button nothing changes. I mean with the shutter button half-pressed, the camera used to compensate shaking, making distinctive louder noise in the process. Now, even when I exaggerate shaking, that does not happen, there's just the hum. I've taken some pictures at low shutter speed with IS on and off,...

Hi, i bought a M4/3 to FD adapter to use with my old Canon FD lens. My problem is: When i mount the adapter, the screen turns black. It registers light when nothing is mounted. I can also take a photo when the adapter is barely touching the mount on the camera (i can even get the focus right), but when i start to screw it on, the the viewfinder goes black. I've tested turning the apature up and down like olympus costumer service told me to, but nothing is working... This is the...

Hi all. I'm a long time lurker here and first time poster. Thank you all for your photos and technical tips. One night my OM-D EM-5 was working great. In the morning it was completely dead. I tried charging the battery but the charger was dead too! On the exact same day! I am travelling in a warm (35deg) and often humid environment. Perhaps that could cause a problem. Long story short I have a new battery and new charger but the camera is still not working. I put the battery in and turn on...

I've had D750 for three days. A very marvelous camera! But, I managed to loose the eyecup DK-21. I've have the same problem with my Olympus OMD EM5, its almous eats them. With D800 this is not a problem, becouse its a much better construction. The question: how one can secure the eyecup from not getting loose? Verkku

Hey there. I've been a lurker for a while, but this is my first time posting so I hope it's in the right place.So basically long story short:I recently bought an OM-D E-M5. I love the camera, I find it delightful to shoot with and very impressive in terms of image quality.Last night I went out shooting through the city. The lighting was consistently poor. I didn't really expect the AF to do a good job. It didn't.That said, my issue isn't that the camera took a long time to find stuff to focus...
