    Problem with EVF and LCD on E-P2

    Hi Everyone, When using my M Zuiko 14-42mm on my E-P2 I notice that the brightness (during composition) on the LCD and EVF is way too bright even though the meter says that it is correctly exposed. I have to underexpose 1.5 stops to get the EVF and LCD to look right. Then when reviewing the...

    Hi dwrz, I use the E-P2 as well and have a few replacement batteries from Maximal Power. These batteries are working well for me and seem to last longer than the original. I've read some reviews on them about not fitting well but never had that problem myself. The link is below...

    Lightroom - cant see thumbnails on card.

    Hey Streetshooter, Yeah I tried that thinking there might be problem with the card. I see the thumbnails just fine when I plug the card into a card reader or put the files on the desktop. Do you recommend not importing directly from the camera? Thanks -EB

    Hi all, Not a m43 question but I'm confident that someone here will have the answer! I'm having trouble with Lightroom/Camera. When I plug my Canon T1i into my computer and open Lightroom to import images, I can't see the thumbnails of the images on the card. All I see are the...

    Is this true? No NR on EP2 during burst mode

    Hi Alan, I noticed this when I got mine as well. It probably turns it off in burst mode in order to write to the card faster. Reason being per the manual "While noise reduction is activated, it takes about twice the usual time to take a picture" - pg. 104 of the manual

    Crazing affect Images?

    Hi all, A friend of mine recently gave me an SMC Pentax 50mm f2. Upon inspection of the lens I noticed significant crazing of the lens coating on both rear and front elements. I'm hesitant to purchase the adapter for this lens not knowing if it will even produce usable images. Does...

    My E-P2 is throwing a hissy fit!

    I would first suggest verifying the USB port on your MacBook is functional. Maybe try plugging a thumb drive or some other USB device into it. If the port works, try connecting your camera to another computer to see if the issue is in fact with the camera/cable. If the other machine can...

    @ x2h: I have a vivitar 28mm f2. I picked it up on ebay for $25. It is prone to flare so for outdoors a hood is a must. It is also not very sharp at f2 but definitely usable. f4 and up yield some very nice images. IMO nice bokeh. good for the price. -eb there's a front view image of it in...

    Hi all, I'm jumping on the wagon and looking to acquire a super-zoom. More specifically the MZD 14-150mm for use with my E-P2. As of today the lowest US retail price is $483 (which includes tax+shipping). If you can beat that by $70 or more I'd be interested. :smile...

    What pouch or case are you using for your E-P1 or E-P2?

    I'm thinking about getting a Domke camera wrap available on amazon but I'm not sure what size I should get. They have a 15x15 and an 11x11. I need it to wrap around my E-P2, EVF and kit 14-42, or Pan. 20mm. Any size recommendations would be great. Thanks. -eb

    Lightzone question

    Thanks Bill and Brian. That answers my question about the color. Any ideas about the "perspective" change. The best I can describe it is a flattening out of the image. Is it doing some sort of lens correction maybe? When I get home I'll post an image developed using the Olympus software...

    Fast prime around 28-40mm

    The vivitar is not sharp at f2. It is also prone to flare w/o a hood. It produces some great bokeh though. I have some pics of my daughter posted in the adapted lens image thread taken with this lens at f2. hope this helps.
