Hi The battery that keeps the time in my camera has failed Does anyone know whether it is user replaceable, and where I could source the part?

I'm antsy to take photos and I want to try a 24 or 28mm lens to allow me some in-door casual shooting.  I'm currently using an Olympus EP-5. I enjoyed shooting with my pentax 50mm F2 but the view is just too narrow, though the aperture does help a lot. I'm waiting and saving up for the big sales near december to get my hands on a panasonic 25mm but for now I want something I can use that's faster than the kit, but  gives good bokeh and colors (yes, i like bokeh but i know that isn't what...

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...

super quick question. I have an EP5 I just bought, and I want a leather case for it. I have the option of buying an EP5 case all the way from aliexpress (china) which will take almost 2 months to get here, or  I can spend an extra $8 to have an EPL case within the week. Will the EPL5 case fit my EP5? or am I better off waiting? (i live in the philippines)

Hi all, after much research and consultation, I'd decided to buy a used Pen EP5 (for about 300$) for my first (own) camera (details below for those who need it). But it's my first camera, and the Philippines does not have licensed oly repair centers here. I originally wanted something I would kind of.. "use and abuse" (only in the sense that i would bring it around with me and use it as often as possible so I can learn quickly). I'm a little worried that the front and back clicking dials...

Is there anyway to set the shutter button on a E-P5 to initiate movie capture? I've scoured the manual, menus, and internet forums but can't seem to find a way. I'm trying to use a pistol grip with remote trigger to shoot movies. Thanks.

I'm looking for an every day carry kind of camera. I've used an A6000 and it's a great camera, but it doesn't really get me to go out shooting more because it feels more "computer-y" (if that makes sense) and not very "camera-y". And it's my work camera so technically it's not mine. MFT camera's all have a super great look to them.  I've recently been turned on to MFT by some photographers I follow. I also assume that since I can take really incredible photos with my iPhone and MFT is a much...

Hi all, I'm a starting enthusiast hoping to invest in a camera but on a budget. I'm interested in taking "memories" mostly. Candid photos of friends in house parties, or street photography of places I will travel to. Hopefully a little more than "better than my camera phone" photos but I don't think I will be investing in professional gear. The budget part is the issue. I currently have a borrowed Lumix GF-2 with the 14-42 and 14mm kit. After shooting with it, I found it to be quite...

I'm in a bit of a quandary. I have a m4/3 kit based around an EM1 mki, EM10, and EP5 with the Olympus f2.8 zooms and 4 nice primes. At this stage I'm looking to get more into video -  i already shoot quite a bit - and so I want a more video capable camera with 4K. The EM1 mkii would be nice but doesn't have all the video functions I need so consequently I'm looking at the GH5. My question is the Panasonic DFD focus is based only upon Panasonic lens profiles so if I get a GH5 will using my...

We went for an evening drive last weekend on rumors of Snow Geese and Bald Eagle fledglings, only to discover one of my two E-P5s has lost its focus, no matter which lens is mounted or which focus mode I select. Even MF gets no response from focus ring turns. 1. Current firmware: 1.7 2. Full Reset 3. Removed battery for a time Has anyone something else I should give a try? Thank you. --Bill UPDATE: The body appears to be unable to detect a lens is mounted. Firmware display only shows Camera...
