I have an Olympus E-PL5 micro four thirds camera. Particularly in low light situations, when I view a shot through the LCD screen, the image is not the same as the picture appears in Playback mode after the shot is taken. The lighting is sometimes brighter, sometimes dimmer in Playback mode. And usually the colors are a little different. I've spoken with Olympus technical support and they first suggested I reset the camera to the factory settings. I also updated the firmware. This didn't make...
I've got an E-M1 and an E-PL5, and I normally shoot in Manual, but lately, I've played around with iAuto and I've noticed that it does a better job than I do at nailing incandescent lighting scenes. It has a nice, warm, happy color, whereas the incandescent setting looks blah and the custom setting ends up looking yellow rather than warm. What is iAuto doing that I'm not? Can I replicate it in the manual settings? --Signature!

Two questions. Pretty basic stuff, but I am very out of the loop on camera stuff these days and am getting ready for a trip where I am very much going to want to be using my Pen. First - When I bought my E-PL5 I remember a wide angle lens being available for it. I can't find the product. I really am going to want one soon. The M.Zuiko 17mm doesn't seem to go wider than the default lens. Second - How does this body compare with the currently available Pens? This is my second Pen body . I...
Hi There Group of GR users of which I'm not a part of, yet... I'm am seriously considering the GRII as my everyday, pocketable camera. It ticks off all the boxes on my list of needs. I just have a couple of q's for you. How does the GRII hold up to: 1. Shutter shock? (My E-PL5 rears its ugly head in this area, and it's really annoying) 2. No Stabilization, how on earth can a photo be taken with no stabilization (just kidding, none of the cameras I owned before 2009 had any...
I see on my TG-3 and E-PL5, the # is built into the main tag on the bottom. On the E-M1, there's an indentation near the tripod mount — but it's empty. When I do the check for shutter actuations (32K), on page 3, I see "SC: BHP236957" Is this my Serial #? Looks like a typical Olympus pattern: 3 letters, then 6 digits. Anybody else have their SN sticker fall off? Happened on my E-5 as well... --Barry

Hello.. i am sure this is question that a lot of people interest to know the answer. i was checking the 75mm olympus lens in different olympus cameras in dxomark. and the strange is that all the cameras have the same sensor with the same rating in dxomark. but when the olympus 75mm attach to these cameras it seems that there are more than normal difference between the cameras in rating. EPL7, EPL5, EP5 , EM10, EM5 all the same sensor scores 72 in dxomark. When the olympus 75mm attached to...
