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...

Need a mic for use with EM1 and/or EM5... I know with EM5 I'll need the SEMA-1 adapter too, but that's not the problem. WIll the power supply from EM1 be enough for microphones like RODE VideoMic Go or would it be better to get a battery-powered version like RØDE VideoMic Rycote? I don't need an extreme HIFI version of micks, but something better than the built in ones in windy situations. Other marks / versions of microphones used and found to be good ones? Use will be occasional sport...

In anticipation of a trip to Yosemite in about a month, I have been thinking about learning my OM-D E-M5 Mark II’s high resolution mode, but something I've come across puzzles me.  My research indicates that it takes about one second for the sensor to make the eight shifts required for an image taken in this mode.  But shutter speeds up to eight seconds are possible.  Does this mean that if one uses a shutter speed of eight seconds, the sensor would just makes its shifts more slowly and take...

After a few years of hard work, my EM5 is giving me trouble. All my shots now have a large amount of reddish shadow noise, particularly in higher ISO. Darker areas look like they have rusted. Facial tones look cartoonish. They look really awful. There is no problem with white balance. I can remove the tinge by processing my raw images but the noise level is really terrible. I did not have this problem until a trip cross country. For whatever it is worth, the camera did go through airport...

I have been taking photos on holiday and some of them came out really weird.  I use the omd em5 my 1 and the kit lens and shoot in raw.   All photos up to one day were fine but a serf from one day were all really blocky and pixelated. Zooming in it had issues and there was not much clarity. I couldn't import the raw files into Lightroom either.  What could have caused this to happen?  Any ideas if this is a setting or a quirk of the camera?  I've not witnessed it before.   I had to reset the...

Hello DPreview members,  First let me thank DPreview sites for providing latest news, reviews of cameras and lenses and thank all registered users for creating loads of content by participating in the various forums or questionnaires.  I am a photography hobbyist and currently using my Nikon D90 purchased in 2008. I am planning to buy a new camera. Though it is understood that buying a camera is based on personal taste (what one likes the most about that camera and how often one uses that...
