Hi, I have a perhaps rather stupid question. I own an Olympus E-PL1 camera, with a kit lens (14-42) and one adapted konika lens at 50mm (100mm equiv). After working with this camera for about four years and taking several courses, I have found some limitations: Focus speed, which prevents me from doing useful travelling pictures of, say, running people or cars. Image sharpness or, more properly, details. Low-light behavior. Noisy and quite obvious for street photography (no tilt screen) No...
The write protect is on when it shouldn't be. I don't see any dust or dirt in the compartment. Michael, or anyone know of a fix for this? My camera, epl1, has been out for almost a week. Michael, I bought the C8080 WZ from you, about five years ago. It works fine. I wish my epl1 would do as well. HGreblo
(Yes, I am paranoid.) If I take my SD card from my E-PL1 and put it in my EM-5 Mark II, will I be able to use the WiFi feature to upload the E-PL1 pictures to my iphone or ipad? Why do I ask... I like the ability to upload pix while I am out-and-about. I can either (1) view them in the field on my ipad or (2) have them waiting for me on my PC when I get home. The EM-5 Mark II lets me do that and wondering if I can use it as a helper to get my E-PL1 shots uploaded as well. Why do I say I am...
I recently bought an E-M10 to replace the E-PL1 that sadly was stolen. I also need to replace my Panasonic 20/1.7. I still can't make up my mind between the Oly 17/1.8 or the 25/1.8. What should I do? (Apologies in advance for asking a question similar to those which have been made previously. I have searched and reviewed the old threads, and I'm still on the fence.) A little more background on me and my shooting habits: I loved the 20/1.7 but want to try something new (with faster...
Hi, I have had an Olympus E-PL1 for about 3 year now I think. I use it every few weeks for a few shots and a lot when I go on holiday. Recently when I turn on the camera the aperture is stuck in a very closed setting and can't be adjusted. Turn it off and on a few times and it may free up, but when it still won't free up it's very annoying. Anyone had an issue such as this before? Is there anything I can do about this short of replacement? Very newbie question, but is it the lens that's...
I have an E-PL1 (2010) with the std. kit lens 14-42mm/3.5-5.6 (2010) + Lumix 20/1.7 + VF-2. Which upgrade move would deliver a significant improvement to this system. Replace the E-PL1 with an OM-D E-M10 body and keep the original lenses and sell the VF-2. or Replace the 14-42 lens with a Pana Lumix G Vario G 14-150mm/3.5 which according to the reviews is better than an Olympus lens and keep the Lumix 20/1.7. My picture taking is mostly landscape and some indoor shots during my travel. I...
I've always been a fan of small cameras because it means you can have them with you more readily. But I wanted better PQ and then the "compact" micro four-thirds cameras with their big sensors came out. I rarely print images much anymore, and nothing larger than 8 x 10 for the most part. But I do want the ability to crop and process images that won't lose too much in the process.For the last 3 years, my "go-to" camera for image-critical stuff has been the Olympus E-PL1. Compared to $200...
