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...

This has happened twice since May 16.  This is a factory refurb.  I had a similar issue with my EPM2, instead of a black box, a block of the image was pasted within the image.  Should I return the EM 10?  http://www.flickr.com/photos/alfredo_tomato/

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,

Hi, I am a bit confused and maybe someone can help me. As a background, I bought a Panansonic GH4 almost two years ago (for sports and filming, and I love it) and have started to use it for astrophotography. I made some really great moon (4k) and planetary shots (1080p), and have now started to take pictures of some of the Messier objects. While I am happy with the results for galaxies and planetary nebulas, I am a bit disappointed with emission nebulas (NGC 7000). This might be due to that I...

I've been reading a few threads asking similarly vague questions lately, and found some of the responses have been quite interesting, so I thought I'd air my query as well. Please skip if you've had enough of such drivel. :) I think my profile lists my current kit, but basically I moved from an E-410 + 14-42, 40-150 and 35 macro to an E-M5 +12-50 almost 3 years ago. Shortly after that, I picked up an E-PM2 with 14-42 and 40-150 kit for $299CDN, which was a no brainer, since I wanted the...
