I'm trying to provide a remote help to my friend who is stuck in the middle of vacation with some problems with E-PL5+14-42 R II kit lens. I'm running out of ideas, perhaps someone can help. Symptoms: no liveview on the LCD, LCD does show a blinking 2.5" shutter speed plus ISO-Auto 1600 plus all the usual status icons The camera does nothing when a trigger is pressed This happens both in iAuto and in Av modes where we tried to manually open the lens apperture What we tried: Restoring...

I got some great feedback from tedolf and KCook but Nick_Brisbane suggested I move the post to this section as it's more appropriate. So to begin...

Hi guys, I am a relative beginner to photography and need some assistance selecting a new camera (my abilities lie pretty close to 'point & click') A couple of years ago I brought an Olympus PEN E-PM1 with the following lenses: * M.Zuiko; 40-150mm; 1:4-5.6 * M.Zuiko; 14-42mm; 1:3.5-5.6 * M.Zuiko; 75-300mm; 1:4.8-6.7 I use the camera when travelling and so chose a micro 4/3's camera for the low weight coupled to exchangeable lenses. Generally I've been happy with the camera, except that the...

I hit the magnification loop button twice to get into the magnified frame view mode with E-PL5. If I half-press the trigger button, before of auto-focusing, the E-PL5 switched back to normal non-magnified view, so it looks like that the AF is not available in the magnified frame view. This is different from what I see with my E-PM1 and E-M10 which can auto-focus while zoomed into the magnified frame. This is greatly improves accuracy with pinpoint x14 magnified zoomed AF box.  Are there...

I see I can get a refurb E-PM1 w/ standard zoom lens for $150 shipped, about half what a new E-PM2 would cost. Is the PM1 a good deal? Would I be disappointed in picture quality at 8x10 size? Thanks! (Sorry for double post but I wasn't sure where this belonged)

Hello Guys, I have a mirrorless Olympus Pen Mini given to me which will arrive this December. The only problem is that its kit lens is broken. So I'm looking for some 2nd hand kit lens (lens here in PH are WAY OVERPRICED) which are around $100. I read that the Pen Mini is using the Micro 4/3 lenses. My question is, it is compatible with 4/3 lenses? If not, then do I need a lens converter for it?

I don't already have lenses, and am not married to a specific brand. In the past I've used Canon DSLRs but lost most equipment in a separation with my ex a few years back (long story). Anyway, a while back I borrowed a friend's Olympus E-PM1, but it's time to think about buying something of my own, and I'd like something a little better than the E-PM1 so I've been thinking either the Nikon D5300 or Olympus OM-D E-M10. When I do travel I usually find myself exploring quite a bit of things off...

Firstly I am using an Olympus Epm1. During the day when the background is really bright, I used the flash for fill-in but can't get it right. I have the camera set on the aperture priority setting. No matter what power setting on the flash I set, the picture was very overexposed. I know I am doing something wrong. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Nick
