I have an Olympus OMD EM5 - when I use a 'manual' lens i.e. Lensbaby or Voightlander the aperture setting does not show on the back of the camera.   The ISO shows and the speed shows but the Aperture shows as _._.  Is there a setting on the camera I need to change?  I have changed the lens length.  This is very annoying as when I import to Lightroom the Lens type and Aperture do not show. Thank you

I seem to be having a slight problem when setting bust more on my Olympus OMD EM5 MKII. I use this when I want to due bracketing. I go and set the release for 5fps but it remains in single shot mode. What have I missed to make this work. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi guys! I have a question for the Olympus users. I have the possibility to get a OM-D E-M5 mk1 at 390$ and a OM-D E-M10 mk2 (brand new) at 545$. Both come with the same lenses Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 14-42mm 1:3.5-5.6 II R. This will be my first mirrorless camera and I'm planning on using it to learn street/travel photography. My question is what should I get, is the OM-D E-M10 mk2 worth the ~150 extra bucks? Thank you very much!

Hi, I just bought an Olympus OMD EM1 Mark II. It all works fine, except that I can't find the way to visualize in real time the adjustments I make to the picture in the screen or EVF. I also have an old OMD EM5, which by default show in realtime the adjustments I make. For example, when changing ISO or f stop it automatically reflects how would the picture look like in the preview of the image.  I just can't find the way to do it in the EM1 II, I think after too much digging in the menus,...

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 am pretty proficient, having had the OMD EM5 MK1 for years, later the MK2 and now ODM EM1 MK2.  I read the manual, searched google, but I am not able to find the answer. When I go into movie mode, ISO is set to Auto and the menu for control is grayed out in super panel or other ways of getting to it.  For example, I can use an assigned button to use front dial for WB and back dial for ISO, but the ISO one is grayed out and I can't change from Auto. I just checked my OM-D EM-5 Mark II and it...

Hi Ladies and Gents, I'm heading off on my honeymoon to a tropical location and would love to take some wide angle shots whilst I'm there. Unfortunately, the downside of getting married and honeymoon's is a severe lack of funds! I wondered if there were any (old skool) Film Ulta Wide Angle lenses out there that don't cost the earth and would work well with an Olympus OMD EM5 Mark II? Something that would rival a modern Olympus 9-14mm. I've been looking at Konika Hexanon range but wasn't too...

With the Panasonic 25mm f1.7 on an OM-D E-M5 Mk ii, the aperture ranges from f1.7 to f22 with steps of 1.7, 1.8, 2.0, 2.2, 2.5, 2.8, 3.2, 3.5, etc. It has about 24 setting values. Result is that it takes a lot of thumb-twiddling to move up and down the scale. Is there a way make the scale less fine? I'd like fewer choices and be able to move through the range quicker. If not, is there a work-around?

If anyone can help me work out why I can't get my strobes to synch I'd be eternally grateful.  Olympus upgraded my camera from the Mk1 and everything was OK with that version.  Fingers crossed as I'm going on a dive photography trip next weekend.

Two questions really.... Looks like Olympus is mature enough to have its own Forum here, or at least the titles at the moment are in need of a revamp.  Olympus Compact Cameras, Olympus SLR and Micro Four Thirds don't seem to consider the OMD's  worthy of their own forum.  I personally think they are worthy especially with the arrival of all the Mk 2's which are for sure special cameras.  Can we have a forum for Olympus CSC's ? Second question is about auto-iso.  I am a Nikon user (D610) but...
