Morning everyone. I recently purchased a second hand Olympus E-5. It works amazingly well, with the exception that there are not camera setting details being displayed through the viewfinder. Does anyone know if there is a setting that I should check, or is it possibly that section of the lcd is not working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Attached image of what I see compared to what I should see. What I actually see through my viewfinder What I should see, but its not there

Hi, im new here, but i just bought an olympus evolt e-510 camera along with a usb cord. i read the instructions, and installed the olympus master 2, as well as the updater, but my main problem is that my windows 7 computer cannot recognize any of settings i put it on. i know it is an old camera, but I have my doubts that its windows 7 that wont recognize it. i have searched and come across a few answers, but none of them worked for me. if you have an answer, or give me a link to one i haven't...

So I have an older E510 that seems to be on it's last legs. The LED in the viewfinder is gone and the flash doesn't work. Doing a little googling tells me that the main board is going. So it's a good excuse to get a new camera but here is my problem. When I bought the E510, I got it with the 2 kit lenses, (14-42 and 40-150) but just last year I bought myself a used Sigma 70-200. Now I would like to stay with Olympus so I can use the Sigma lens but from reading a little more I see that even...

In the past, I have been able to see the exposure preview in live view when I half-press the shutter button. It would show me whether or not I need to increase or decrease exposure level. If the live view image was too dark, I would increase the exposure level and vice versa. I shoot in A mode. That function no longer seems to work. Is there a setting for this that I might have inadvertently changed? Thanks in advance, Jim Fowler, Greenville, SC

Some time ago I recall seeing a posting here on how to navigate the Olympus menu for focus adjustment. Honestly I find the manual and the menu titles on the camera confusing. Can someone point me to the post that itemized how to do this? I want to adjust each lens and have that setting stored so it kicks in when the lens is mounted. Thanks in advance, Bob

Watching this site for awhile, very knowledgeable folks here from what I can tell.    To the chase, I am currently shooting with an Olympus E-500 (8mp & 10yrs old I think) that I pretty much leave in manual mode.    The images come out at 310dpi but when I used the wifes Canon SX40hd (12mp?) they read as 150dpi......    Both were used in appx the same settings.      So while this kinda un nerves me, can anyone tell me what the dpi would be for a Nikon D3200 or D3300 (my next camera maybe due...

Recently my car was stolen in addition to my E-5, E420.  And 4 of my lenses.  (14-70mm was one of them) I am looking to stay with the Olympus brand and am wondering what all of your thoughts are on replacing the E-5 with another E-5 or making the move to the OM-D line. I do a lot of backpacking and outdoors adventures and my E-5 had routinely found itself "abused" by the elements or by rocks on the sides of mountains.  It held up amazingly well especially paired with the 14-70 lens.  Good...
