Hi! This is my first post in this forum, but I've been following it for a long time. I've decided to participate because for a few days I've been thinking in acquiring a new camera: currently I have the magnificent Gx7, a gem that gives me lots of satisfactions. I am not shooting video very often but I mainly do travel photography (street, landscape, some nature,...) and I always liked to travel with two bodies: gx7 + olympus e-pl5, but I decided to sell this one and get a bigger (but not too...
Giving serious thought to a cheap pocket camera. I see you can get an Olympus Pen epl5 for under $200 body only, and a Panasonic 12-32 f4-5.6 for about $130. Thinking this would be a nice pocket setup to compliment my G7 and modest lens collection. Anyone have one of these that they can comment on its longevity as a pocket/car camera? IE something to have with me when I don't have my usual camera bag? Thanks
I own a Olympus E-PL5 and the lens it came with does not have the capability to shoot action shots like I want. My question is should I upgrade and buy the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO Lens or should I upgrade to a new camera? I have a newborn and want the camera mainly to take pictures as she grows up.(I’m no professional by any means) If I buy a new camera I’m thinking along the lines of the olympus_omd_em10_mark_iii or maybe a dslr. Let me know what you think

I purchased the Olympus E-PL5 floor model (for a fantastic deal) two years ago or so with the intent of doing YouTube videos with it. For the most part the camera has been excellent both for still photographs and video. Recently however it has been trying to compensate for low light. I added several lamps including one very bright (garage light style) to boost the light in hopes of putting a stop to the endless flashing. It looks like I'm in a nightclub, its auto adjusting for light every...
I use my Olympus to video old films (16, 8 and super 8 mm) by setting the camera on a tripod, projecting the film on to a screen and recording. It works well enough for my purposes, except that at times the focus changes. I have the camera set on video and haven't been able to find a way to keep the focus set at the distance from the lens to the screen, about 6 feet or so. Is there a way to prevent the focus changes?

Hi - First time poster here, hoping to pick this community's collective brain on a baffling issue that I haven't been able to find anywhere else with some rudimentary Google-fu. I have an Olympus E-PL5 body which I purchased in very good condition last year to match with existing lenses I had bought for an older PEN model. Those lenses are: Olympus M.Zuiko 40-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Olympus M.Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 I experienced an odd issue which left me baffled at the time, where I had initial...
I'm considering purchasing the Godox TT350 O TTL for my Olympus EPL-1 which from what I've read on this forum limits flash voltage to no more than five volts. The Godox flash unit is compatible for the EPL5 thru EPL8 but doesn't mention my EPL-1. I could order it from Amazon and test it with my digital volt meter as prescribed by the writer on the forum but I'm asking if anyone knows if Olympus comparability means all EPL camera series. Just don't want to cook a pretty good $500 four thirds...
Is there a way to power my Olympus Pen Lite E-Pl5 using electricity instead of a battery? I am having some excellent success videoing old 16mm films using the "movies" setting on my camera. The problem is...battery life seems awful short and some of the films I'm viewing are 15-20 minutes in length. The batteries for the Olympus seem to die out relatively fast. I would love to be able to "plug it" in to a wall socket. I await the knowledgeable crowd at DP to come up with an answer. Tks..Steve
I am very interested in this camera. There are 2 features I would like, but worry won't be included. First, is basic 4K video without a large crop. Second is OSPDAF, and I'd settle for it with a 16MP sensor ala EM1. Have there been any leaked specs about these. My worst fear is that it will have the same 16MP sensor without OSPDAF that E-PL5 had 5-6 years ago. :( Please Olympus don't lose this customer. For the Panasonic fans, I am waiting to see what the E-PL9 is like and may get the GX85...
