I'm about to attend a wedding as a guest where the photographer has specified in his contract "no professional grade equipment is allowed" for guests. I'm looking at maybe getting a used Olympus E-P3 or E-P5 and mounting my 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 EZ Pancake Lens and hoping I don't suffer the embarrassment of getting called down for it. Questions: Aside from the extra four megapixel in the E-P5 , how do the cameras compare in low light situations? Any differences in sharpness? Dynamic range? Image...

Hello there, I was pondering to replace (not in the near future), my "old" G6 with a new m4/3 body which must be environmentally sealed. Long story short: all in all, looking at what the available camera offers at this moment, I've thought that the G80, for me and my needs, is the best overall compromise. BUT, this morning, having some spare minutes to burn on the web, I was just checking on the DXO Mark website how the G80 performs compared to what I already have (G6 and E-PL5) and, to my...

Hello. I own an omd-10 olympus camera. After taking some long exposures photos i notice some round dusts fog dusts and a hair dust. using a lens soft cloth i remove the hair and some dust from sensor. After i took a sample photo using a method (that i read in internet) so i can examine better my sensor. And still there is some round fogs dusts around the sensor. I already order a wet wipes for cleaning the sensor but as i searching in internet i read that is risky to clean the omd sensor...

Hi All, I have a good old Olympus E-P3 body. When in-body stabilizer is ON, what happens, when I attach an OIS (Pana) lens on it? Will it turn off the lens IS / the in-body IS / different scenario? Is there a way to tell the camera what to do in such a situation? Thanks, Peter ----------------------------------------------------http://peterdegay.wix.com/photos

So my Helios 44-2 just arrived from Ukraine, more specific this one. I have two adapters, one for Canon EF and one for MFT. However, no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get anything in focus using an Oly E-P3 or a Canon 500D. Here is a video I shot with the 44-2 on the 500D pulling focus from 0.5m to infinity (or the other way around, I can't remember) on f/16. The focus ring does make the lens extend, but still doesn't put anything in focus. What do you think? What else can I check or...

Been using the minor 4/3 format since my PEN EP3 i finally upgraded to the OMD EM5 MII. Finally i have a camera that is somewhat capable of shooting video. What are some settings you "guys" suggest using.  I am new to shutting video on a SLR / M4/3 format.  In my research i am seeing that some people say use shutter mode and double your frame rate for shutter speed.  Some people say use P mode instead.  I am assuming the closest mode to auto to take video would be P mode something i can just...

Hi everyone. I just bought an old Olympus F280 flash, for the ill-fated OM77AF camera. The flash itself is in good condition and works. It has no problems being triggered on my E-P3 and Pentax Q, but for some reason it simply will not fire on my E-M1. I've already tried the three settings on the back of the flash (super FP, manual, auto) and most of the E-M1 settings too, to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions or some insight that they could share? Thanks in advance. --"Chase the light...

Hi folks, I was looking to upgrade my camera body after using my trusted E-P3 for a few years now. When I acquired it I had little no experience with photography/the camera was given to me, so I didn't have to go through the choice of finding the right camera. This time around I have a bit more of an idea of what I would like to have in a camera, but m43 technology has been developing so quickly and I am feeling rather lost in terms of what to look for/how to get the most value out of the...

I just bought an Olympus m43 17mm f/2.8 for my E-P3 body and it focuses perfectly in both AF and MF but the center part of the lens does not retract into the body when the camera is turned off. Is it supposed to? It sticks out quite a bit otherwise and I bought this lens because it is compact. It can be pushed back in and it extends back out when the camera is turned on. I searched but could not find any mention of this behavior in any reviews or even whether it is supposed to retract. A...
