Today I noticed that the depth of field shown in live view is stopped down to what looks like f/4 or so, when I'm in manual exposure mode, with the lens set for f/1.7. This is with the Panasonic 20/1.7 mounted. Is there a menu setting I'm missing? Did I just never notice this before, or did I change something deep in one of the menus that I forgot about? Any help would be much appreciated! Will

Hi I ran a search on this issue and since i didnt come across any topics I decided to post this question:- I have an Olympus e-pl1 + samyang fisheye lens combo which I used to click a few pics during sunset/twilight hour in the evening. I shot in raw mode after which i converted the image into jpeg. On converting to jpeg i noticed on the bluish sky region lots of circular patterns/banding appearing in layers. This was not so when saved in other file formats such as tiff or png. I saved the...

So I recently picked up a used E-PL1 that was converted to 750nm (not sure where the conversion was done). I'm finding that images with my 14-42 II R are a fairly soft and lacking fine detail (haven't tried another lens yet). Careful processing can bring some of it back, but images are still not what I would call crisp.  Given that the 14-42 is reported to be a good lens for IR work, does anyone know what the problem could be - the lens? Poor quality filter used in the IR conversion?...

Happy new year! I'm a jewelry designer and currently taking pictures with the standard lens on my Olympus pen E-PL1. The lens has been a bit broken since over a year and having some difficulties with the auto-focus lately.  But most important, it's just really hard to get tiny jewelry (think 2mm post earrings) pictured sharply.  So I need to get a macro lens. Thing is, I'm pretty new in this business and still haven't gotten even, so my budget is around 100 euro for a (second hand) lens...

Hello, I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm very novice with DSLRs. I have an Olympus e-pl1. It was a gift and I've had it for a couple years now, but I'm still learning from it. Anyway, more recently an uncle gave me an older camera that is in great condition. It's an Asahi Pentax K-1000 and it had a Focal MC Auto 135mm f/2.8 lens on it. I have googled the lens and I know its pretty cheap, but i think it still looks nice through the viewfinder and I would like to try it on my...

I'm having difficulty finding how to set my camera to take simultaneous RAW/JPEG images in the menu of my Olympus E-M5. I'm able to do this with my E-PL1's. Is it possible(practical?) with the E-M5?

Hi, Long time no post. I finally got back to photography and upgraded my E-PL1 to E-PL5. I'd like to know how much should I expect the new sensor regarding hot/dead pixel? I did some lens cap test and I got these. The test is done in cold start. Camera has been off for days before the test. 1. ISO200, 1s, 80 hot pixel (luminance > 60) 2. ISO1600, 1s, 3734 hot pixel (luminance > 60) 3. ISO1600, 1/10, 92 hot pixel (luminance > 60) 4. ISO1600, 1/400, 11 hot pixel (luminance > 60) Says, should I...

Hi Everyone, I decided to purchase Nissin di466 for my Olympus E-PL1. I order to do so I contacted retailer and was told to bring my Oly to the shop where they will find out if di466 works properly. My guess is that they will try to mount di466 for Nikon or Canon on my camera. Is it possible to make such combination or I can use only dedicated di466 for M43?

I am trying to locate a good PEN E-PL1 Micro Four Thirds lens that will allow the widest range of zoom.  I am not too smart on the terminology used in lenses (like f stops and mm, etc), but want to get a gift for an E-PL1 user.  His current zoom is good for mid-range to far, but he can't pull it back enough to catch items as they move closer in.  For example a vehicle far away that drives past you; he can get it from afar as it approaches but it fills the frame as it gets near and passes...

Hi, I have my first child on the way beginning of next year, so looking to buy a camera to take lots of family photo's. At the moment my budget is going to be limited to a starter SLR or CSC, which I think are my best options, even if I'm only using the kit lens for a while.  My key concern, after image quality, is with the speed of the camera - especially indoors/ in lower light. I previously had an Olympus EPL1 which took great photo's but really struggled to lock on to fast moving objects...
