Hi all- I've been using my trusty E-PL2 for a number of years now, and soon will have the need to use a more powerful, external flash for an event I'm shooting. Was wondering if I can use my old Nikon SB-24 -- I put it in the hot shoe, but it didn't trigger.  (BTW, I've confirmed that the SB-24 shouldn't fry the circuitry of the Oly already) Am I missing something?  Should this work, and if so, how would I use it? I assume on manual, but how specifically?  My flash knowledge is rusty, as it...

I have just purchased the above camera. The manual indicates that there should be an icon on the screen when I use a Myset. My reading suggests that this is a new feature with this camera.  So far I have not been able to see this icon displayed even after selecting one of the two Mysets I have programmed. I know that the Myset works because the camera settings do change when I choose the different Mysets. Has anyone else run into this behaviour or can tell me what I am doing wrong? (I have...

I have an E-PL2 as a back-up M43 camera; my main camera is a Pany G6. I am planning a cold-weather outing on Sunday, and rather than fumble switching lenses with heavy gloves, I may just put my 14-42mm II lens on the E-PL2. I was planning to use the Pany lens instead of my Oly lens due to its high IQ and a lens hood. This lens doesn't have an on/off switch for IS, so how do I turn it off on an Oly body if I use a tripod? The E-PL2's IS menu (I use the Super Control Panel) seems to shut off...

Hi, I'm looking for a wireless remote to trigger automatic self portrait taking on my EPL2.  I'm wondering if anyone have any input/suggestions on the name/brand where I may find one for not too expensive?

Please help, I own an Olympus E-PL2 camera which has a cracked rear display glass. My problem is I do not know if the glass\polycarb is attached to the LCD or it is a separate piece which can be removed separate from the LCD. I am afraid to use any tools and pry it off if it is attached to the LCD in any way. My LCD is not damaged and displays everything correctly. Any help as to how these things are put together or taken apart would also be appreciated. --oly620I am not a pro and only post...

Hi guys, I cracked the screen on my E-PL2.  The LCD itself still works fine, the crack is just in the plastic exterior part.  I googled around for replacement parts, but all I could find were replacement LCD assemblies.  I suspect I'm just not using the correct search terms, but I don't know what this part is called. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it.

Its been a long time since I posted here...actually posted anywhere. I was one of the Oly users that switched after about the 2nd gen of micro 4/3rds to a Nikon system and with the exception of a brief time with an E-PL2 kit, I haven't touched an Oly DSLR in the last 5 years. Nonetheless, DR limitations and all.... the E-510 was and still is my favorite machines certain things. I recently picked one up on ebay with just a basic kit lens for occasional use and really quite like it....but I...

I recently upgraded from an E-PL2 to the GX7 and haven't been able to find a feature I really like on the E-PL2. On that camera I'm able to see where highlights will get clipped in live view (areas highlighted in red), and therefore adjust my exposure before I shoot. So far I've only been able to get the GX7 to show me where highlights got clipped (blinking black) right after the shot. This seems like it would be a really useful feature to have on the GX7, especially since it has two dials....

I have a Leica screw lens that I would like to use on my Olympus EPL2. I’m interested in some thing that isn’t too expensive, to see how it works. I have tried BH, Goggle, etc. to find an adapter with little luck. Keeps turning up every thing but what I want. I have tried the usual quotation marks and it didn’t help. Need some recommendations. New to the forum so this may have been answered before. Bill L

I have a cheap eBay FD to M4/3 adapter (branded DSLRkit). It 'mostly' works on an E-PL2 but there seems to be a dodgy contact - sometimes the LCD blanks out and can be restored by gentle pressure on the mount. But on E-M1 the LCD/viewfinder just stays blank. Not a flicker. The camera is metering, as I can see the shutter speed changing. I assume the presence of the lens is not correctly detected. For some other M4/3 models the advice is to set 'Use without lens' in the Custom Menu, but I can...
