How to over-ride dark view in EVF when using flash as main light source ?  Focus a problem at dusk for hummers.  Using F11, ISO 800, 1/250th, and a flash in the hot shoe.  View finder is showing what image will be, not calculating that flash is being used.  Very hard to see dark subject in finder.  Is there a view finder boost that would help focusing,  bypassing the “what you see is what you get effect”.  Without the flash the image is at least 3 stops under exposed and the EVF is too dark...

Recently I'm finding that when I power on my E-30 (much less frequently used nowadays than in the past) the SSWF continues to randomly flash the blue light and rattle more than the ususal one time -- indeed, it now fires many times over several minutes at least. It will interrupt functions e.g. reviewing photos by resetting to the menu screen.  Anyone else experience this?  Perhaps the system needs to be cleaned?

Hello everyone,    Will the OMD-EM1 and accompanying software work with Windows XP, Olympus Master II, and Corel Pro Photo X3?    I am considering stepping up from my E-30's in order to gain two more stops of usable ISO. (Using my current 4/3 rds lenses with the MM3 and HDL7 grip.)  The increased stops of usable ISO would be my only reason for adding the OMD-EM1.    I realize my computer is old stuff,   but it is still working for me and the deal breaker would be if I have to also buy new...

I am looking to get a FF camera, many options with the different suppliers on line. I am looking at the canon 6, are all the 6D cameras wi fi enable? I've noticed different prices listed some say wi fi and others don't. I don't need all the features of a Mark 5, I am not a professional, so the 6D looks appealing to me. I will keep my 60D as a back up. --http://www.flickr.com/photos/billse-300/E510 with two lens kit, E-300 and battery grip, E1 and battery grip, 14-45mm, 40-150mm, 50mm macro,...

My E-30 sometimes turns off and on, off and on.....when I first turn the camera to the "on" position.  Seems to occur after camera has been idle for a period of time.  After the above on and off cycles , the camera seems to be OK.  Time to send to Olympus for repair?  Otherwise I may miss an important shot when first turning the camera on.   Thanks  for any help.    --slowbutsteady

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help. I have an Olympus 300 [mod edit - E-300 or Evolt 300] and have just bought a remote shutter. The attachment doesn't seem to plug in anywhere and I've looked online and found that I need an HLD-3. I can't find one of these anywhere so can I use an HLD-4? Any help or advice would be really appreciated. Thanks
