Will this new bundled flash that comes with the OMD EM5 II work with an older model EP5 camera? It bounces and swivels and is a perfect compact flash for those of us who rarely use flash and I'm hoping someone has been able use this flash with an EP5. Bobby --Keep Calm and Sip Your Coffee

Simply love the bottom plate Really Right Stuff made for the earlier model (OEP3-L-S) but they don't seem to support the current PEN. Is a similar plate being manufactured by anyone else for the E-P5? I'd appreciate any pointers as my research is striking out. Thank you. --Bill

Are there any photographers here working in digital photography that also have (or know someone who has) Parkinson's Disease? Ive just been diagnosed a few months ago and am trying to comprehend all the side effects of this disease and keeping optimistic about long term effects on life in general and photography in particular. My Doctor says I a good chance of only experiencing mild side effects from this condition so I will keep a positive attitude. One thing that has helped me through some...

Hi, Has anybody got a clue what is going on here ?  I have the Lever on my E-P5 set to Mode 4, but it only works when I save it in a MySet, assigned to a position on the mode dial. If I set it "globally" to Mode 4, then in plain vanilla A, S, M modes, the lever has the same functionality in both positions 1 & 2 - mode-based dial function. Probably I'm missing some subtlety...12 years with Olympus menus and I still get lost :-) Cheers, David --Blogs and galleries at...

My E-P5's histogram doesn't update when I set an exposure compensation value. It just shows the 'uncompensated' values. This is true both in A and S modes and when the exposure compensation is set using either the dial or wheel. Is this a fault or is there a setting to change that I've missed?

Hi, a few days ago a problem came up with the touchscreen on my Olympus PEN E-P5: it stopped working. I mean, after switching on the camera, any touchscreen functionality is gone. I can't touch anything, neither on-screen options nor touch-focussing. It seems that the touchscreen functionality is turned off, but it is not (I checked the settings). After several turning on and off the camera the touchscreen functionality comes back. But when I turn the camera off or the camera goes into sleep...

My E-P5 dials are now beginning to malfunction. Most of the time they work, but they also skip a click or two from time to time. Can anyone recommend a quick fix so i can bring the camera on my vacation next week? Does anyone know at what point the global guarantee expires. I found this on their website: "Please kindly be informed that Worldwide warranty will not be provided with most of our Micro Four Thirds System and compact digital camera products shipped after September of 2014." Does...

I have the above Camera and I have really messed up all the settings etc trying to work out how to set up SCP among other things. Now I am finding I am not able to take any pics in A mode that are not overexposed . Is it ok to return the camera to factory settings and start over from scratch. I am very new to this camera and finding the menu hard to work out. I previously had a Canon 70D Thank you

I just got myself a E-M10, while my E-M5 is being repaired. Again. I love the added gimmicks on it. While trying out the Wi-Fi functionality I am left wondering can the Remote Live View be used simultaneusly with regular camera Live View? It might sound odd but since I am used to aming through the camera this seems strange. Can the camera Live View at least be used while app is in Remote shutter (I think i saw that it can)?

Hey all, so I've been using the mighty but miniature E-PM2 for quite some time alongside the 25 1.8, 45 1.8 as well as the Sigma 19 2.8. The images that I capture are quite fantastic but I'm realizing how much I want a body that has a bit more control and functionality as opposed to the E-PM2. Right now I am considering EM10 or possibly the EP5 kit. I know that the EP5 is much older and the same sensor technology but I like the looks better in addition to receiving the 17 1.8 and VF4 which I...
