I am moving up from extended use of the tz range of cameras and want to learn more about photography.  I have see a gx7 with 14 42 for £250 and also a omd em5 with 12 50, 40 150, and 45mm for £450. Does anyone have any opinions on these two camera that would help me with regards to ease of use and suitability.  Thanks

Hello there, it's a couple days the camera still works, but the touch and the buttons are unresponsive , so I can't navigate the menus, play my pics and so on: what I can do is only take pictures ( in whatever mode is set before turning on the camera, after that, the mode cannot be changed.) The only thing that comes into my mind is that a few days ago I updated to the latest firmware, but it worked for several days). Today I tried to change the SD card, put in an unusual one, cam said "card...

Hello  I ruined into something i haven't seen before and would like to ask if anyone has any idea what it might be..   I was shooting with an external flash , not attached to the camera , while in long exposure in live composite mode.  When i was reviewing my images there were some (4 out of 60 ) that has this weird line in them. Has to be some sort of flash synch issue is my guess but i don't know much about this..  Any help would be appreciated ! Cheers!!

Does anyone here shoot bugs, specifically dragonflies or butterflies, with an Olympus OMD camera?  What is your set-up?  I have been shooting bugs with a LUMIX DMC FZ 1000 and thought I'd upgrade to a light camera with interchangeable lenses so decided on a MFT - Olympus OMD EM5 mk Ii.  I just got it last week and haven't tried it on bugs yet (even in Central TX there are not many bugs around right now). I can't really afford a pro lens at this point and am concerned that the M.Zuiko 75-300...

Lately, I've had a few shots taken with my E-M5 from which I have been unable to achieve the results I want using Lightroom CC. Either I can't get smooth tonal gradations, or I can't get the contrast and detail I want without colours looking false. I am trying to determine if this is a weakness with the E-M5 RAW files, LR, or just my editing skills. Or perhaps I am expecting too much. I have used LR since it came out, but only occasionally use Photoshop. I have tried DXO OP, Raw Therapee and...

I am considering selling my Olympus OMD EM5 Mk2 and my 14 - 150 lens and buying a Fujifilm XT2 with the 18 to 135 lens. I travel and need a one lens system, the new OMD EM1 Mk2 is too expensive but I want to upgrade and I am tempted by the XT2's resolution, sensor size and native 3:2 aspect ratio. I have an X30 so I know the Fuji film interface. Does anyone have any thoughts to help me make the final move?

I purchased the omd em5 when it first came out and now have a range of olympus lenses to suit. The camera is getting little tired and I'm seeking advice which camera to update to. They seem to be getting bigger and heavier which takes away some of the zing of the original 4/3 system. Do I stick to Olympus with the lenses I have?

I think I have a reasonably good understanding of all the debating regarding sensor and lens equivalency. The crop factor and sensor size dictate the reach, light gathering ability, and possible depth-of-field effect in comparison to a 35mm camera. Nevertheless I was wondering if anyone would care to provide a more detailed explanation of the pros and cons of equivalence and how it applies to my cameras, as examples. For example, which is the best choice for a 300mm shot in less than sunny...

Hello everyone and Happy New year from Down Under in Australia. I have a simple question re this new model - Has the auto focus improved over previous OMD models? My photography experience has been primarily 35mm with a range of high end film SLR's,over 20+ years with some great results.   I moved to digital 10 years ago, with Canon products, right up a 5D.  Over the past few years I've invested in Olympus OMD u4/3rds products, starting with a OMD EM5, then an EM5 Mk2.  I have the following...

Hello, I have been reading some threads about remote shutters and from these i chose to get a Pixel 221 with UC1 Connection for my Olympus OMD EM5 Mark II. My Problem is i can't get it to connect. When i plug it in and turn the camera on it comes up with the screen to pick usb modes, storage, mtp ect. I tried all of them and none will allow me to get past that screen with the remote shutter release plugged in. When i hit exit, it just says remove USB cable.  Is there a setting i need to turn...
