Hello everyone,    Will the OMD-EM1 and accompanying software work with Windows XP, Olympus Master II, and Corel Pro Photo X3?    I am considering stepping up from my E-30's in order to gain two more stops of usable ISO. (Using my current 4/3 rds lenses with the MM3 and HDL7 grip.)  The increased stops of usable ISO would be my only reason for adding the OMD-EM1.    I realize my computer is old stuff,   but it is still working for me and the deal breaker would be if I have to also buy new...

I am looking to get a FF camera, many options with the different suppliers on line. I am looking at the canon 6, are all the 6D cameras wi fi enable? I've noticed different prices listed some say wi fi and others don't. I don't need all the features of a Mark 5, I am not a professional, so the 6D looks appealing to me. I will keep my 60D as a back up. --http://www.flickr.com/photos/billse-300/E510 with two lens kit, E-300 and battery grip, E1 and battery grip, 14-45mm, 40-150mm, 50mm macro,...

My E-30 sometimes turns off and on, off and on.....when I first turn the camera to the "on" position.  Seems to occur after camera has been idle for a period of time.  After the above on and off cycles , the camera seems to be OK.  Time to send to Olympus for repair?  Otherwise I may miss an important shot when first turning the camera on.   Thanks  for any help.    --slowbutsteady

Hello, I wonder if anyone can help. I have an Olympus 300 [mod edit - E-300 or Evolt 300] and have just bought a remote shutter. The attachment doesn't seem to plug in anywhere and I've looked online and found that I need an HLD-3. I can't find one of these anywhere so can I use an HLD-4? Any help or advice would be really appreciated. Thanks

I will be boat based whale watching next week and thought it would be a good idea to invest in some spray/rain protection for my kit... I'm intending to take my two E5s with 50-200 and 14-54II lenses.   The aquatic gear appears to be what I need; but although there website lists the NEP-80 eyepiece as compatible with Olympus (and Nikon) they only list  E-3/300/330/410/500/510/520/620 as supported Does anyone know if it will also fit an E5 or E30 (or an EM-1 or EM-5 for that matter)? If anyone...

Hi, I own a handful of travel zooms and a Nikon D3300. I have been spoiled by the Nikon D3300 IQ, which in turn has made me less accepting of the IQ produced by my existing travel zoom/bridge P&S cameras. Consequently, I'm contemplating the purchase of a mirrorless camera. The Olympus PEN E-PL5 currently has my attention. I can get one with a kit lens and U.S. manufacturer warranty for a very good price (about half the cost of the recent E-PL7). The E-PL5 is, of course, discontinued. So my...

The Peleng 8mm/3.5 is a circular fisheye for 35mm format cameras--because of this it should act as a diagonal fisheye on Four Thirds sensors. Before Samyang came on the scene, this lens seemed to be the only reasonably priced alternative to the native 8mm f/3.5 for Four Thirds. But discussion about its performance hasn't been easy to find as of late. It's made in Belarus, and it costs about $250 shipped, so it doesn't have any cost savings over the Samyang fisheyes for MFT or NEX. But...
