Hi, Not sure if this is the right forum, but I have a question about importing photos taken by my olympus om5 mark ii to my Mac. I use the default Photos app and notice that burst photos are not showing up as bursts, but rather as individual photos. This is annoying as the Photos app does offer some tools to select the best photos in a burst, and it doesn't clutter the overview. Is this a limitation of the camera, should I make some changes in my camera settings, or is this an incompatibility...

I have a GX85 which I found to be very good. The areas that can use some improvement are DR and, to a smaller extent, resolution. I believe this is where the HiRes mode should come in handy. It is perfectly suitable for my photographic style. The e-m5 II is the cheapest model to have this capability; is it worth investing or something else may be more appropriate. I have many fast zooms and fixed, so please no lens suggestions.
When I was setting up my E-M1 II (going through menus, changing settings, playing a bit) I though the battery seemed to be discharging quickly, faster that I’d expect from my E-M5 II experience. I’ve now done a test just leaving the camera switched-on, but “idle” and battery dropped 10% in 22 minutes. Live view was off, only SCP displayed on the rear LCD. An Olympus BLH-1 battery was used. For the test I deliberately disabled power saving options - backlit LCD = Hold, sleep = off, auto power...
Quick question, when using the EVF, could I use my finger to select AF point on the touchscreen just like I could on Panasonic cameras? From what I understand when EM5 ii was first released, there's no such a function. But did they add it in firmware updates later on?

For a few reasons I’m considering upgrading from an E-M5 II to an E-M1 II. I hadn’t planned to upgrade until early/mid 2018, but I am tempted by the current promotion in the UK of £200 cashback and an included battery grip. One issue I’ve had a few times with the E-M5 II is sometimes it’ll focus behind the intended subject and very occasionally “hunts” and fails to focus at all. The most common scenario where this has happened is indoors/dull conditions when there has been something brighter...
I'll get the e-m5 II in the next month or so. The question I'm currently asking myself is about the additional lenses and a reasonable first collection of lenses. I'll mainly work with landscape and street and occasionatly on some family parties. 12-40 Pro would be part of the camera kit, so this lens is already set. My question now is, if it is reasonable to get the 14-42 pancake. So my constalation would be a Always-on-my-site-kit with the 14-42 and the 12-40 for planned photos and the...
I have an O-MD E-M5 ll with firmware update 3.0. So far I am really enjoying the camera and lens ecosystem (I am normally a Sony shooter). My question/problem is that the camera is what I consider REALLY slow to wake up when I want to shoot. It goes to sleep quickly which is fine by me to conserve battery life but when I am walking around shooting and I go to take a pic it feels like forever once I press the shutter release to wake it up (it's about a 2-3 second delay before I can...

My new Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III has a USB Micro-B data port instead of the standard Olympus USB port. That means the RM-UC1 release that I use on my E-PL2 and PEN-F won't fit. Olympus doesn't show a Micro-B remote release on their website and the only one I could find was one made for Fujifilm cameras. So I bought two different models on Amazon and neither work.Yes, I can use the phone app, but I like a physical cable release to use when I need something fast. Anyone know of one that...
