I started getting into micro 4/3 with a Panasonic GF3 which came with a Panasonic 14-42 kit lens. When I set the lens at the wide end at 14mm, I could capture a pretty wide view. I just got a used Olympus E-PM2 and added my Panasonic 14-42 to it, but the field of view is significantly narrower than before, almost 50% of what I could see with my GF3. In the E-PM2, there is a Scene mode called "Wide Angle" which is meant for Olympus wide angle lenses. When I switched to this Wide Angle...
In this recent thread, there was some talk about using RawDigger and FastRAWViewer to get a more accurate report on actual RAW exposure values: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58298914 I have looked at these two programs, and while I can see how FRV can allow more accurate view of the RAW data for bracketed shots, I am not sure that it will improve my results where I am not bracketing, and I'm reluctant to introduce more steps into my workflow, as I'm always a year or more behind...
Hi all. Planning a trip to Goodwood FOS this year. I have an Oly PM2 body and 17/1.8 and 45/1.8 lenses. I plan to use 17mm for close shots, and 45mm to capture action from the distance and occational "isolated details" shots. I want to travel as light as possible (and this set is probably the lightest one possible), but not sure if 45mm will be enough. I do not mind cropping, but if a tele zoom is a must there, then I would start looking for one. Being on a budget, a used Panasonic 35-100,...

I got a kit Oly 14-42 II R with my E-PM2, and recently I noticed that the bayonet mount was exposed. I don't remember seeing that before, so I wonder if the cap/ring on the mount may have fallen off accidentally. Does this lens come with a cap on the mount or is it exposed? This is driving me crazy, wondering if I lost that cap :-( Can someone check and let me know. Thanks! --Just a pixelpusher with a love of photography
I rarely shoot video, but yesterday I had my Pany 12-32 pancake zoom on my E-PM2 recording some video while I was shooting. I noticed that the aperture kept jumping around noticeably on the video, so I switched it to manual mode (which I should have done to begin with). I recall seeing some firmware fixes for aperture issues on various lenses, so I am now curious how common this is. The camera and lens firmware are current as of last month. I had planned to shoot with my OM Zuiko 50/1.8,...
After many years of jpeg, I just started to shoot raw files, and have a question: The raw files from my EM10II are missing their EXIF file attributes, at least they are not shown in Windows (File) Explorer. The raw files from my EPM2 on the other hand display all the settings. Now when I process them with a raw editor, the resulting jpegs have their attributes back. Is this a setting in the camera somewhere?
It appears that neither my E-M5 or E-PM2 offer auto ISO in M mode. I am curious which mFT bodies do offer this option - does anyone know of a list showing this? Or if there is a trick to enabling this on an E-M5 - I haven't found one. I am fully aware that adding auto anything to M mode no longer makes it truly an M mode, but would rather avoid that topic here, there are other threads already for that. :) Thanks --Shawn Wrighthttp://www.flickr.com/photos/zuikowesty/
Hi, sorry for a noob question. I just got a hand on an e-pm2 and couldn't figure out how to set the aperture on non m4/3 lense (in A and M mode). I have no problem with m4/3 lense but when I put on the the adapter the aperture display "--" and I can't change it. Is there something I have to turn on or off ? thanks,
