My daughter is starting to shoot (much better on comp and editing than I am), she's 16.  I am going to Italy and she is going to Africa, I know both very lucky, but She doesn't have a set up and I want to help.  I am taking my OM-D E-M5 and I'm giving her my older PEN E-P1.  I have a Panny 20mm F1.7 and an Oly 45mm F1.8...Big question which lenses do I buy for her?  Need one zoom and one figure 14-50mm type. Thanks for the help, Kevin

Greetings everyone! I am an old 4/3 shooter who dipped a toe into µ4/3 with an E-P1 years ago before going onto a photography hiatus. I'm now getting back into photography and bought an E-M1.2 to update my body, with the intent of using my old 4/3 lenses for photography. I see that many things have changed over the last few years, and have been trying to get caught up on the various developments. I had experimented a bit with using the E-P1 for home video years ago, and found that it worked...

Hello. I own an omd-10 olympus camera. After taking some long exposures photos i notice some round dusts fog dusts and a hair dust. using a lens soft cloth i remove the hair and some dust from sensor. After i took a sample photo using a method (that i read in internet) so i can examine better my sensor. And still there is some round fogs dusts around the sensor. I already order a wet wipes for cleaning the sensor but as i searching in internet i read that is risky to clean the omd sensor...

I am planning on doing some infrared photography in the coming days and planning on going for a mirrorless compact converted into either a 720nm or 850nm ir only camera or a full spectrum model. Now I had the chance to try out a friends full spectrum oly ep1 with a 850nm ir filter fitted onto the lens. I noticed the live view had gone dark [due to darkness of the filter] and one could hardly see anything. I had to increase iso to around 800 and keep a low shutter speed to actually see...

i have an E-P1 that I bought when it was first released (2009?), and the 14-42 and 40-150 kit lenses that came with it.  I like the size and style of the PEN cameras but I haven't used mine much in recent years do to lack of opportunity.  However, I will be going on a cruise this summer and want to take lots of photos and videos. I am very interested in upgrading to newer versions of the lenses, but I am confused about which lenses are the best/newest versions. There seems to be a very wide...

Hello Sony APS-C Forum, I am considering the purchase of a new camera for travel.  I want a camera that's small, light weight and very capable for under $1000 for body alone so the Sony a6000 looks interesting. I have been using my Oly E-P1 since 2010 and am now desiring an upgrade in photo quality, focusing speed and video.  The E-P1 is very slow with focus and has low-res video.  Looks like the a6000 is a winner.  My question concerns file storage on the a6000 and how will I move the files...

Hi I have owned an EP 1 complete with a  14 -42 zoom lens as standard, for an number of years now. It has worked well, and I have often used it with my e system lenses, and,  the then, required adaptor, to allow the same to fit on the afore mentioned body! So Far so good! In a moment of madness, I bought a Olympus 40 to 150  ED MSC lens, to save always carrying the larger E lenses. That's the back ground, now this is my question, and  my problem. the fist time I used the 40 to 150 lens it...

Hi guys; I've been shooting with Oly E-P1 and Canon 60d, and it is time to buy a new camera. I'm a m. doctor so this camera will also be used to record my patients. Budget: 1000-1200 euros Priorities: 60% Stills (indoors, portraits, and few low-light situations); 40% Video (indoor, no uber need for 4k although good 1080p would be appreciated). Detailed 1080p and still IQ are what i'm looking for. Current Glass: Oly 17mm f2.8; Canon EF-S kit zoom 17-55 and 10-18. I'm thinking this is a good...

First off just want to apologize if this has been talked to death here but I can't find anything recent about this topic. I've only been in the M4/3 camp for a very short time period, and while I am loving the versatility and ruggedness my EM1 + 40-150 PRO lens is giving me I often find myself wanting just that little bit more DoF control. I also worry that the 12-40 PRO lens will just exasperate this problem. Being a primarily zoom shooter (I'm lazy) and coming from FF (I know, I know, groan...

hi everybody, when shooting video with the e-p1, what are your settings and/or tricks? (accessories?) am i right that changing aperture and exposure compensation is all i can control in video mode? any comments would be greatly appreciated! fieo UPDATE: can i reduce the noise level (especially when shooting video in low light) by switching to another lens or is it due to the sensor?
