Hi there - I've been developing my photography skills quite a bit over the years (mostly family, landscape, food, street photography) and was considering getting a mid level DSLR like the Canon 70D to replace my Oly EPL1, which i've had for a very long time. The idea is that i'd like to eventually start a small side business down the road (say in a year or two) doing family/portrait photography locally (primarily through referrals etc). Is it acceptable to use an APS-C camera for such a...

Hi there - I currently have an Olympus EPL1 which is in desperate need of upgrading. I've loved shooting with that camera over the years and have taken some pretty great landscape/street photos with it. (I have both the 14-42mm and 42-150mm kit lenses as well as the Leica 25mm F1.4 which has been amazing for portraits). I shoot in manual mode and have a pretty good understanding of how things work. As a result, i do have some future goals of making a side business out of my photography skills...

Hey All, I've been a faithful user of Micro 4/3 cameras ever since the Olympus E-PL1 came out, but have never paid attention to video.  I started taking more video earlier this year when I got my E-M5 mark II and I've upped the volume of video I've been taking ever since I bought a LX100 and had a beautiful little girl 2 months ago.  Now that I've accumulated a decent amount of footage, I'd like to start doing some editing/grading and all that other jazz.  I currently use Lightroom for photo...

Hi, I have an Oly PEN E-PL1 which is my first digital camera.  I'm re-learning photography.  I'd like to ask Santa for a flash.  I'm NOT a pro.  It's mostly for family portraits and occasional fill flash.  Features I'd like:  TTL, and tilt.  Don't even need rechargeable batteries.  This will be for very light usage, but includes work to learn more. Given the foregoing, What would you rec?  Santa's wallet is tightly limited to $100 (lower is def better than a bit more- even for more) Thanks,...

Hello everyone! I have only just registered to join the forum. TBH, I've been using my E-PL1, with a 14-42 and a 40-150 lens, for years without issue and with great success, so never thought to join a forum. Recently I've added the lens-cap lens and the Electronic Viewfinder. I find the camera really easy to use, and it has been a valued companion on many a family outing. In the last couple of days, though, I've hit a snag. The 14-42 lens appears to have stopped interacting with the camera...

Hello forum folk, My 16 year-old son is a fellow photography enthusiast and has been for several years now. He's presently got an Olympus EPL-1. Given that I have and EM1, we're able to share lenses. I'd say most of his photography is street-photos, cityscapes and landscapes. He's beginning to find the EPL1 a bit frustrating, mainly because it doesn't have a viewfinder - just an LCD screen. I would be very grateful for any recommendations for a camera for him: Most important: Small and...

Has anyone had problems with yellowy/blue spots in an Olympus VF-2? First one than more and over time the display is riddled with these spots, making i t pretty hard to see what your doing! I have had this with two VF-2's, on three different camera's; two E-pl1's and a E-Pl3. Has anyone any experience with this, or preferably a fix? It's too complicated to make a decent photo of the picture inside the viewer, but anyone who has experienced this will surely know what I'm on...

Hi, I have a perhaps rather stupid question. I own an Olympus E-PL1 camera, with a kit lens (14-42) and one adapted konika lens at 50mm (100mm equiv). After working with this camera for about four years and taking several courses, I have found some limitations: Focus speed, which prevents me from doing useful travelling pictures of, say, running people or cars. Image sharpness or, more properly, details. Low-light behavior. Noisy and quite obvious for street photography (no tilt screen) No...

The write protect is on when it shouldn't be.  I don't see any dust or dirt in the compartment. Michael, or anyone know of a fix for this?  My camera, epl1, has been out for almost a week. Michael, I bought the C8080 WZ from you, about five years ago.  It works fine.  I wish my epl1 would do as well. HGreblo
