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...

Hi all, I'm now using Olympus EPL5, and thinking an upgrade to EM10 III, I know I will get: - better handling - EVF - better dials control  - 5-axis image stabilization - 4K video But other than that, how's the noise in high ISO comparing with EPL5?  And any other things are better than EPL5? Thanks in advance for your tips. Jeong

Hello, I'm new to the community, so I'm sure I'm not the first person to ask about this. As of yesterday my Metabones ef-mft .71x no longer lets me control the iris or the focus of my lens. The camera recognizes the speed booster AND the max aperture of the lens. Using the lever on the speedbooster I can change the number displaying the F/ in the camera, but no change is made in the lens. I've tested the adapter on 2 different cameras and 3 different lenses. The cameras were the GH5 and the...

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)

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...

I'm new to the Olympus OMD EM-1 having upgraded from an E-PL5 which I've used for the last couple years.  Day 2 shooting with the EM-1: 75 shots then all of a sudden both my LCD and EVF screens went dark. Tried turning the camera on/off several times, cycling the EVF button, changing lenses, changing batteries, changing SD cards, setting the auto EVF feature in the menu to "off" then back "on", none of which worked.  It's a used EM-1 with a little over 1,500 shutter actuations.  Was ok...

I have been using Olympus Pen Epl5 for the last 2.5 years. As far as I know camera didn't have any physical damage but IS system is now not working and sensor will be replaced. Any idea what can cause such a problem?
