My E-PM1 began a malfunction yesterday. I made about 3 good shots after which all subsequent pictures are blank. The camera powers up okay. Once you take the picture, there's a slight delay, you can here a faint "growl" and click from inside, then the camera powers off. I image that is created on the media is a blank dark image. Strange thing is the camera operates normally when making a video image. I tried several things, remove battery/media, plug into computer, looked for reset function,...
I am considering upgrading my camera body, and would like to crowd source some knowledge and advice. I got an E-PM1 about three months ago, because it was the cheapest route for me to try MFT and see if it works for me. Since it does, I want a body that will improve in the following categories: - Better IBIS - Lower noise - More customizable hardware controls - Focus peaking - 100'ISO - Less banding - Shutter shock reduction/avoidance I find an EVF essential for the way I shoot, but I already...
My u43 path so far has been E-PM1 (to test if I could deal with u43) -> E-PL5 -> E-M5-II. I just received the E-M5-II a couple of days ago - so far, so good. Prior to u43 I shot with a Nikon D70 and D200 for about 5 years. Before that I shot film, first with an OM-1 and eventually with an OM-4T. I think the picture shows how much the E-M5-II feels like coming home after a long trip. Perhaps that is why I instinctively optimized the function keys for manual focus - f2 MF, f3 peaking, f4...
I'm looking at lenses and adapters, and thinking about the problem of adding an aperture to Pentax 110 lenses. Does anyone know how far in back of the body flange you can safely go on the E-PM1 without interfering with the focal plane shutter (which actually appears to be about 10mm in front ofthe sensor)? --Metaphorce
Hi, I have the Olympus epm1, with the standard 14-42 kit lens. recently it's been overexposing on a kinda random basis, with any sunlight i need to turn the exposure compensation to -3 and still end up with a too bright shot. so I bought another body.... same problem. the display shows the photo getting darker with the exposure compensation, but the image is still blown out. apart from a new lens ( this is getting expensive) has anyone any ideas? Donny.
I'm trying to provide a remote help to my friend who is stuck in the middle of vacation with some problems with E-PL5+14-42 R II kit lens. I'm running out of ideas, perhaps someone can help. Symptoms: no liveview on the LCD, LCD does show a blinking 2.5" shutter speed plus ISO-Auto 1600 plus all the usual status icons The camera does nothing when a trigger is pressed This happens both in iAuto and in Av modes where we tried to manually open the lens apperture What we tried: Restoring...
Hi guys, I posted this question a couple of weeks ago in the landscape forum but didn;t realise there was a specific beginners area. I got some great feedback from tedolf and KCook but Nick_Brisbane suggested I move the post to this section as it's more appropriate. So to begin... I am a relative beginner to photography and need some assistance selecting a new camera (my abilities lie pretty close to 'point & click') A couple of years ago I brought an Olympus PEN E-PM1 with the following...
