I recently made an impulse purchase of a used Olympus MAL-1 macro arm light. I had been coveting one since my E-PL3 days and had somehow forgotten about it. When it arrived, I realized that it's one of those accessories that requires an accessory port on the camera body. Other such accessories include the VF-2, VF-4, and flashes like the FL-LM1/2. Is there a way to use this with my E-M1ii? Using a hot shoe adapter, for instance. Or a separate power source? Currently, my only compatible in-use...

I  frequently  buy older digital cameras on an "as is for parts or repair" auction site.  So far almost all have been in working condition requiring only a battery or charger.  My most recent find is an Olympus Epl3 with no battery  or battery cover.  I own an epl1 so I figured  I'd purchase this for the lens.  Turned out the camera was clean and worked perfectly.  I started my search online and found them listed from China,  Chicago, and Texas.  5 different sites offering  the cover for sale...

i have a 7 years old olympus pen lite e-pl3. i just got to use it back for my trip few weeks ago. turns out when i tried to turn it on, the screen brightness is a little darker which is really hard to see if the object is at the right saturation and whenever i tried to take a picture, the shutter noise, its like a little lagg. i tried formatting my sd card but nothing happen. also sometimes the picture would be too dark or too bright. i need help to fix this. thank you for your time.

Hi all, I recently found my dad's EPL-3 that hasn't been used in a long time. Tested some pictures and they all come out green, at all modes and settings. Tried resetting and doing firmware updates to no avail. What could be causing this? Is there a way to fix it myself or do I have to bring it in to the shop? Thanks.

Few months back I became a proud owner of Olympus e-m10. My lens "collection" : 1. M.zuiko 17mm f2.8 - I have it only for a few weeks but it will be my most used one 2. Konica Hexanon 50mm F1.8 3. Pentax 25mm F1.4 Abut my dilema: I like walking around with my camera on streets, like landscape also, and enjoy taking photos of details people pass by. (At this point I think I do not know enough abut photography to call my self an "enthusiast photographer" but hope to get there :) ) I always...

Hi all: I've been using an EPL3 for about 3 years, and have accumulated a handful of lenses (listed below). I use it mostly for outdoors stuff: wildlife, landscapes, cityscapes, etc... I am heading out on a big trip to Australia and New Zealand in the fall, and was wondering what folks would recommend as the next addition to the set. I would also considering renting something higher-end for the trip instead of buying something. I currently have: -the 14-42 kit lens -the Olympus 40-150/4.0-5.6...
