I have got an EM10 MK2 from March. Haven't use it for a while. Took it out yesterday and turned on without SD card. It took pictures for the first few minutes, then it went into the sleep mode and won't wake up from button presses. I initially thought the battery was died since I didn't recharge it. Charged the battery full overnight and this morning realized that the camera started freezing. the viewfinder or the screen (depending on which one was on when the freeze happened) would be active...

I was taking some shots with my new EM1 MkII, standing on the left side of the camera (about 8 o'clock where the subject is 12 o'clock ). The images were upside down on the flip screen unless the screen was almost vertical. The camera was low, so it was hard to see when the screen was vertical. At the time, there was no room to stand on the right side of the camera and I was using an L-Bracket so I couldn't flip the screen all the way out. Even without the L-Bracket, I might have been able to...

Howdy! With the impending closure/sale/whatever Micron is calling it, would people recommend getting any Lexar 2000x cards for the E-M1 II? I'm not sure of the timeline for the closure, or if it would affect warranty issues, etc, and I also remember some compatibility issues  with the higher-capacity cards? The speed tests on cameramemoryspeed.com show the Lexar 2000x cards significantly higher than almost every other card, but they also haven't updated the test since January, (The Sony G...

In a previous thread I asked about using radio triggers for a Canon Speedlight from the EM1.2 and got some good answers.  My question now is a bit different. I want to mount the controller part of the MR14EX ring lite on the Oly camera, and put the ringlight itself around the lens (probably the 60mm macro, but any other that I can find adapters for).  The reason is that I have the MR14EX, which cost about $500; I can't spend that amount on the Oly ST-8 until the piggy bank gets replenished. ...

Is there some way to assign one of the buttons on EM1 mark 2 to switch to the silent shutter? Or some other way of switching without using the menus of the custom modes?

Just curious about whether or not Olympus might come out with a zoom to compete with the PL 100-400? I only wonder this (naive though I may be concerning business practices in the µ4/3 arena) because I just received my E-M1.2 and would love a 100-400 zoom with the IBIS and the OIS synchronization. I suppose Panasonic and Olympus reached some sort of agreement regarding the initial roll out of their respective 100-400 and 300mm lenses but do you think there might be something along the lines...

When I connect the Olympus Share mobile app to the EM1 mark 2 via Wifi, it changes the time settings on the camera and syncs them with the time on the phone. I prefer to have the camera always set to UTC rather than some random timezone where I happened to use the Olympus app, to this is extremely annoying. Is there some way of disabling this? G.

I received the second E-M1.2 today.  This question has probably been asked and answered before but here goes.  Can I load the Body 1 settings onto Body 2? --Cheers, MarkAlways learning

Howdy! I've got a Sirui T-025X (carbon fiber) tripod with the tiny ballhead that came with it. I'm looking to replace it with something a bit more robust for my E-M1 II+battery grip, mostly using it for landscapes and macros. Anyone have any suggestions? Was eyeing the K-10x or K-20x from Sirui but I'm worried they'll be possibly too for the compact nature of this tripod? Thanks! ------- https://500px.com/teddybozeman

Hi all, I'm having some difficulty with continuous autofocusing with my Olympus trying to shoot my dog running. I'm using the Olympus OMD EM1 Mii with 12-100 PRO. I was shooting on a overcast day using ISO of 640, F4 and 1/500 shutter. Tried used AF + Tracking as well but was getting similar results. The focus seems to be ok at the start but falls off as the subject comes closer, having a super hard time trying to get focus on her face. Using 9 points of focus with AF-lock on loose +2. Also...
