    Other Accessories Re: Replacement BLM-5

    I only use the 4/3rds gear occasionally these days in favor of micro 4/3rds and compact cameras. I've been using Watson batteries for most of my gear. I like having the charger that can charge 2...

    Camera Topics Re: E-5 Body Repair

    Generally, the stuff that I've seen says that it is shelf life degrades capacity, even if you don't use the battery. Other things like high heat, and completely discharging the batteries can also...

    Camera Topics Re: E-5 Body Repair

    Yes and no.

    I bought the E-m1 mark I as a cheaper alternative to getting the 14-150mm f/2.8 pro lens to use with my 50-200mm mark I lens. I find in normal light conditions, it works well, but in...

    Camera Topics Re: E-5 Body Repair

    Given that the E-5 was announced in September 2010, and likely all E-5 bodies were made in 2010 (and maybe some in 2011), and it is now 2017, I would expect that sooner or later the spare parts will...

    Camera Topics Re: need advice

    It kind of depends on how much you want to spend, how much gear you want to lug about, what size bag you want, and whether you want a shoulder bag, backpack, etc.

    I personally find it hard to buy...

    Yes, they came out fine. Note however, I only had the 1.4x converter, not the 2x converter.

    Chit Chat Re: Back to the E5

    I once did a whale watch trip in California and I had packed away the 14-54mm lens. I only had the 11-22mm lens for doing the harbor shots, and the 50-200mm + EC-14 for the whale shots. The whales...

    Others have answered what FAS is (fully articulated screen, like the E-5 has). Focus peaking was added to the E-M1 mark I via firmware update. It is an aid when manually focusing to find what areas...

    Camera Topics Re: OM-D M10 Presets

    I believe the big difference between the traditional myset implementation and the new custom mode implementation is that myset just sets all of the options other than the mode, whereas the new custom...

    Camera Topics Re: OM-D M10 Presets

    I don't own an E-m1 mark II, but in checking out the manual, page 35 mentions that the E-m1 mark II has 3 custom modes, that are essentially mysets. You can rotate the dial to C1/C2/C3 to use those...

    Camera Topics Re: OM-D M10 Presets

    For the E-m10 mark I and II, you want to look up "myset" in the manual. In the E-m10 mark I or II, you could have 4 different mysets. You could program different buttons to switch to a myset or via...

    Which is why in my last camera upgrade, I got the Panasonic G85 to complement the E-M1 mark 1. The G85 has an OLED viewfinder, and you can see it without problems with polarized sunglasses in either...
  15. Re: WTB: HLD-7 Grip - Vancouver Canada area

    Note, if you can't find an Olympus HLD-7 in your price range, there are various clone HLD-7's (such as Neewer). I suspect these aren't rated for being splash proof, but since the battery grip sits...

    Flash / Strobe Topics Re: Profoto supports Olympus

    Note, Olympus only updated firmware for the E-M1 mark II, the E-M5 mark II, and the Pen-F for the Profoto. If you have earlier Olympus cameras or Panasonic cameras, you will not be able to use the...
  18. Lens Topics Re: Preparing for Storm Chasing Class - Lens Recommendation?

    Hopefully you can find places to rent classic 4/3rds gear like the 50-200mm. My sense is places that used to rent out classic 4/3rds lenses (like lensrentals.com) have switched to micro 4/3rds only....
  19. Camera Topics Re: Loss of Detail between Live View and actual image

    Just for fun, you might try RAW + SF jpeg instead of LSF. I vaguely recall that for some cameras there wasn't enough processor power/memory to handle decoding a LSF file, but there was for a LF, so...
  20. Camera Topics Re: Loss of Detail between Live View and actual image

    In terms of what you see on the camera playback, RAH is correct. If you are shooting RAW, the camera doesn't convert the entire RAW image for the LCD review, instead it uses a small...
  21. Lens Topics Re: What 4/3 lenses do you use with your E-M1?

    Ummm, the Olympus micro 4/3rds 60mm macro lens is weather sealed, like the 50mm 4/3rds lens.
  22. Lens Topics Re: What 4/3 lenses do you use with your E-M1?

    As RAH says, the problem only seems to appear with the wide lenses (i.e. Olympus/Panasonic 7-14mm, Olympus 9-18, Sigma 10-whatever). Around 14mm or so the problem seems to disappear. I have not...

    Well another option, particularly if you are using a tripod is to put the E-3 into live view mode, and then use the back LCD. You can use the magnify function (page 32) to enlarge a given region 7x...
