Hi Guys,       I'm interested in buying a camera, and Im thinking of going with a mirrorless. Im interested in using it for some basic astrophotography, and landscapes, and just an all around decent camera.  I'm in college, so my budget is limited. My brother has a Sony A6000 (or maybe 6300, I forget) but he has recommended that. I have  read reviews and it seems like the Olympus em1 is also good. I guess I just wanted some opinions. Thanks! oh and Im a beginner, guess I should mention that

Hi all I've just bought a new E-M1 to complement my M10 mkII. I've got the latest firmware on both and yesterday I did some test shots with both using my 14-150 v2 and 75-300. Both are set up the same and the shots were taken at the same time. I was very surprised that the M1 jpgs are not as sharp as the ones from the M10 ii. It's more apparent when looking at the pics full size but even side by side the difference is clear. I was expecting them to at least be the same, or perhaps the M1 to...

Just purchased a 14-150 lens and action shots in shutter priority are coming out dark-- even though viewfinder shows normal exposure.  12-40 works fine with same settings. Any ideas on what am I doing wrong?

Hi, I am with MFT since I started with photography. Even if I'm very happy with Olympus, I find exaggerate the price of the new E-M1 mark II, so I would like to use this opportunity to try a different system. I would like to buy the D750 because of its high score, and because Full Frame. But it is from 2014, am I taking the right decision? Anyone aware of new models going to be released soon? And is the Anti-aliasing (AA) filter affecting the final quality of the image (Nikon D810 doesn't...

If I assign exposure compensation to the lower front button on the E-M1.2 and set the mode to M with ISO Auto and the lever in position 1, pressing the lower front button just reverses the the dial functions (that is, the front dial then controls the shutter speed and the back dial controls the aperture) and neither dial adjusts the exposure compensation. In other words, assigning exposure compensation to a button does not actually allow one to adjust the exposure compensation. This behavior...

I used to have the e-m5 mark ii and you couldn't tether to a laptop while shooting high-res mode, was wondering if anyone knew if that's changed for the new e-m1 mark ii ?  i figure it has that new usb 3. 0  type C connection so the bigger file sizes shouldn't be a problem.  thanks ---Leo3https://www.flickr.com/photos/28422494@N02/

So, I've been shooting more and more with my E-M1 Mark II and I have a few frustrations with it. The biggest one has to be the ridiculously slow startup time. For a camera so hyped up as a speed demon, this just feels glacial. It is slower than my E-M10, which was already not particularly fast. Panasonic GM5 just runs circles around the new E-M1, the difference in speed is astonishing. Any ideas if there is some setting that affects this? Can something be done to improve the situation?  I...

Hi,  I`ve got a strange problem, the aperture in A-mode is stuck on 5.6 on the EM mark II using the PanaLeica 12mm 1.4. The focus ring on the PanaLeica is in the A-position and I still can`t change aperture using the control wheel. I also got a GH4 and changing aperture works perfectly in A-mode there.  I`ve run trhough the Olumpus menus over and over again, but can`t find anything there helping the problem.  So what do I do to change aperture with that excellent lens on EM 1 mark...

witht he em1 ( now version 2 ) I've occasionally used olympus viewer ( Otherwise I do with acdsee pro 10 ) but I find the software somehow baffling for digital converter pictures and bursts of several pictures. I often fail to identify those pictures taken with the digital converter. Also the thumbs showing picture burst as a kind of stack are puzzling. I'd appreciate some feedback to use the software in a more straightforward manner. Thanks.

I'm in a bit of a quandary. I have a m4/3 kit based around an EM1 mki, EM10, and EP5 with the Olympus f2.8 zooms and 4 nice primes. At this stage I'm looking to get more into video -  i already shoot quite a bit - and so I want a more video capable camera with 4K. The EM1 mkii would be nice but doesn't have all the video functions I need so consequently I'm looking at the GH5. My question is the Panasonic DFD focus is based only upon Panasonic lens profiles so if I get a GH5 will using my...
