Generally, I am very happy with this camera, but I have bumped into a very annoying limitation. In iAuto mode the maximal ISO is 1600. In P/A/S/M mode it can easily go higher, because I have set under the option "ISO Auto Set" the "High Limit" to 6400. Is there any way to solve this in iAuto, too?

The E-PL6 is my first non point-n-shoot camera and I'm struggling a bit obtaining infinity focus in nighttime conditions.  In particular I'm trying to obtain some night sky shots and pictures of the moon.  I realize my little kit lens isn't the best tool for the job but I'm sure some decent shots are possible. I've been trying to use the 'distant streetlight' approach to obtain infinity focus and then recompose the shot... but that's hit and miss and makes things much more complicated than...

I have an Olympus PEN E-PL6 that I use as a backup camera. Recently, when I turn on the camera, the S-IS1 indicator starts flashing (orange color). When I change the setting to S-IS2, its still flashing. When I change it to S-IS Off, it remains at S-IS1 and flashing. Anyone has this problem before? Is there something wrong with camera's IS or I mess up something in the camera's menu?

Hi there, I have been using the Olympus XZ-1 for a few years now and I love the colors of jpegs it produces. I have a very good DSLR but I keep coming back to XZ-1 because of the colors and nice jpegs. And recently I'm thinking about buying either the Olympus E-PL7 or E-PL6. there is about 25% price difference where I live so this would be important ( if they would have similar jpegs I'd probably get the PL-6) Could anyone tell me how the jpeg output looks in these two cameras? There is a...

This is really a 'first world problem@ but here goes- I upgraded to mFT from FT early this year. As it happened, I bought an OMD-em10 ( mark 1) body only and an EPL6 kit, just to get the lenses. At the same time i was offered a GX1 secondhand at very good price ( €90) . Since then i have added the Oly 45mm 1.8 and a second-hand Panasonic 20mm 1.7. I am plainning a motorcycle trip next month and i want to take a light travel kit. Originally, I was thinking of the em10 with the kit 14-42mm...

Does the E-PL6 have the option to select the smaller focus area like on the E-M5 and E-M1?  I didn't see it on the menu of my granddaughter's new E-PL6. --"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Clarkes 3rd Law

I've come across varying ideas as to what the best approach for capture sharpening for m43 sensors (I have an Olympus E-PL6 FWIW).  Does the 16 megapixel sensor and the pixel density require that one stay within certain amount, radius and detail boundaries?  I'm fully aware that these settings are subject and ISO dependent.  I'm just wondering if there's technical reasons for doing or not doing certain things.
