Hi! I have a 9 year old son who shows some interest in photography and videography. Would like to buy a cheap camera for him. Cheap because he will probably break it soon. But tough compacts are too expensive, even old ones, and their photo quality is too bad. I own a full Olympus m4/3 system and I gave him my old Olympus E-P3. It's a very well built camera, it doesn't break if you drop it on asphalt from 4 feet height. But, since it was 3.3 year old it recently stopped working. Shutter...
I have been using my E-M5 for about a year and even though I like it a lot I never really fell for it. I just recently bought a GX-7 and must say I´m in love. This might very well be exactly what I was looking for, fingers crossed :-) Since I´m a hobbyist and don't shoot all that much I see no reason to keep both more advanced bodies, the Olympus is going to spend most of its time on the shelf or in the bag anyways. I plan on selling the E-M5 and get myself a used somewhat simpler Olympus...
Hi all My everyday camera is a Nikon D7100, and I have been a Nikon user for quite some time now, but I have been trying out some smaller cameras for over 1 year just to get the feel. I recently purchased an Olympus E-P3, and would like to update the firmware as it is showing version 1.0. From what I have read, I think that the newer version is 1.3. I also have a VF-3, so first: I would like to know if the newer version does anything to improve the VF-3, and my next question is: why do you...
Hi guys, newbie here! I was using the HD 1080p mode on my EP-3 with the original 14-42 mm lens for shooting a video but I was struggling at the focusing close-ups (around 10 cm). It worked when I pressed the shutter button but it won't sustain, only if I don't release it. Am I missing something? Cheers.

Hey guys. I'm very much a clueless photographer who still struggles with all the technical jargon and I have a couple of questions that have been bugging me recently: I own a Nikon D40 which was my first camera and an Olympus OMD EM5 which was given to me. I've been trying to learn a thing or two about photography in order to compliment my blogging and my initial experience with the D40 and its 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR kit lens was decent. I later picked up the 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED for some...
I just updated to E-M1. I also have E-M5 and E-P3. My first camera was om-1. Still have it. My question relates to continuous shooting speed with four thirds lens. I have 14-54mm f2.8-3.5 II and 40-150mm f4-5.6. Just notices that when either lens is at wide angle neither E-M1 nor E-M5 will shoot at maximum speed. When are both at maximum focal length they will. Both cameras and lenses have the latest firmware. Would appreciate answer if anybody has the same experience. Thanks in advance B
