My Olympus infrared RM-1 remote control seems out of function.  I am looking for another one that would be easy to use for self-portraits., and adapted to my E5, as well as my EM1. Anyone has a suggestion?  What would you recommend? Many thanks,

Hi, As my EM1.2 is due this week, I'm looking to replace my existing card (a SanDisk Extreme card, 90MB read, 60MB write) with a new card. I will probably put the older 128GB card in my 2nd slot for JPGs, thus taking off some load from the main card in terms of storage. Generally speaking, I usually buy SanDisk. However, the current UHS-II SanDisk 300 card is very expensive (125$ or so). I also saw there's an older generation UHS-II SanDisk (rated at 280/250 read/write), but I saw a benchmark...

I am trying to get my arms around the E-M1.2 mode choices for AF Scanner (Menu > A1 > AF Scanner) and how it would help (or hurt) my shooting. So, for example, a scenario in which I am shooting wildlife in less than ideal light with one of Oly's pro line of lenses. And that animal has hair-fur that does not have a lot of contrast. What mode would make sense and why? Now, I understand fully the ramifications of AF issues with objects of low contrast. It is the menu choices that are not clear...

In researching purchase of a(nother) m43 camera body, I am trying to figure out the image collecting attributes of sensors: noise, dynamic range.The dpreview image comparison tool including the Panasonic GH5, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II, the Panasonic GM1, the Olympus E-PL7 (the latter two bodies I own) offers some insight. Looking at the zoomed-in rendered RAW output from ISO 200 up to ISO 6400, I do indeed notice differences.On photonstophotos.net the data for a similar set of sensors seems to...

I have the camera setup to record simultaneously to both cards to provide a mirror copy, but can't get erase/delete to do likewise. I've been trying different things and even consulted the manual (god forbid) but can't find a way for images to deleted simultaneously from both cards, only from the one that it is set to playback from. Can someone point out what I'm obviously doing wrong? --robhttp://hardlightimages.zenfolio.com

Hi guys, Trying to make choice between PL 12-60/2.8-4 and Oly 12-100/4, for my OM-D E-M1 mk1. One of the main parameters would be extra step added to Oly's IBIS with Dual IS. If I mount PL 12-60/2.8-4 on the same body, will I still enjoy this extra step with Dual IS, or will have to chose b/w IBIS vs OIS? Thank you!

I've been shooting Micro Four thirds for 5 years.  2 Years on a Panasonic GX1, then I switched to a OMD EM5 Mark 1.  All this time I was only shooting photos, and now I'm starting to shoot about 50% Photos 50% videos, so I'm looking for a camera that meets my needs. What I love about M43: Lens size and selection, ibis , portability What I hate about M43: Low light performance What I'm considering: OMD EM1 Mk , GH5, a6500 , a7Rii (or holding out for the next A7 camera).  I've tested all of...

I saw on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BknDjJJUDI that the auto focus capability of the omd e-m1 mark II is pretty bad. I'm using the old e-m5 and it looks like the slowness of the autofocus hasn't changed...  To people that are using the camera: is it in real life that bad?

Hi folks, I am wanting to use the flash that came with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II to fire from the camera and simultaneously fire a remote flash. While the 900R will obviously give more light, please advise if one flash is better for this between the 900R and 600R? And, if mounted on the camera, it would seem the 900R is a bit large, what bracket would you recommend that retains the flash's full connection to the camera? Thanks!!!
