    OM-D LCD Stuck Pixel Question

    This is not something that will spread. Sure, a pixel can go bad at anytime but the risk of this is not greater if you already have had a pixel go bad. Pixel mapping is a great way of fixing the problem. If your camera is still under warrant then I would check with the manufacturer if they fix...

    OM-D LCD Stuck Pixel Question

    A hot pixel or pixels on the sensor will show up on the LCD as the LCD is getting the image from the sensor. You could of course have a faulty LCD and a sensor that is fine but if the faulty pixel is on the sensor it will show up on the LCD, more or less. If it's gone now only tells me that...

    DPReview picks 3 M4/3 cameras among their 10 best values

    The IBIS in my EP1 gave up last month and I bought a GX1 to replace it. The price of the GX1 is today so low it's a great bargain. The GX1, X 14-42 and the 20, 1.7 was a total of equivalent to about 830 USD, when it was just released the cost for this set was about 2270 USD. This is in Sweden...

    Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 discontinued!!

    Since you have the 19mm it makes a lot more sense that you wanna send the 20mm back:smile:

    Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 discontinued!!

    If you want a good lens keep it, if you want the latest gear then send it back. The 20, 1.7 is not a bad lens just because it has been discontinued. It is still as good as it's always been, besides we still don't know anything about the new model. It seems likely that Panasonic will replace it...

    [EXPIRED] Olympus Flash FL-14 in Europe

    Hi! I will trade worldwide although within Europe would be easiest. I have an Olympus FL-14 flash that I have never used. It is in absolute mint condition, basically new. I would like to trade it for anything m43 related but first and foremost I would like the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45/1,8...

    Who needs to upgrade reeaaaally???

    I don't think I've ever had to upgrade, I've done it but not out of need. For my digital stuff I use the EP1 and for analogue stuff I use a camera from 1954. I try not to put to much faith in the equipment but it's hard. I sometimes get the "need" to bye new stuff because I think I need it...

    This winter is getting old...

    I for one agree with you, this winter is indeed getting old. Two weeks ago we had 41F but then it shifted back again this last weekend it was -13F again. I like your photos, nice, sharp and free of noise. I took this with the EP-1 and the 20mm Lumix. 1/4 shutter speed. I have constricted...

    Looking for film grain filter

    Alien Skin Software: Exposure Maybe a bit overkill if you only want the Tri-X setting. The program mimics a lot of films as well as processing and cross processing.

    [EXPIRED] FS: Free Gone!!!

    A sigma 28-105mm ASPH IF lens for Canon EOS (not digital, it is possible to upgrade the chip in the lens to get it to work with digital EOS, provided that Sigma still has the parts), a 62mm UV filter and a 62mm HOYA HMC Red filter. I'd be glad to send these to someone who can put them to better...

    On giving it away, and other things MU-43

    I like this idea very much. Unfortunately my financial situation is not that great but by global standards I consider myself lucky. I don't have any legacy glass but I do have some 35mm stuff, a sigma 28-105mm ASPH IF lens for Canon EOS (not digital, it is possible to upgrade the chip in the...

    Need Your Opinion

    Honestly I don't have the patience to wait for the the flash to finish buffering. Apart from that I would lose the email and phone number since there already is a contact option in the main menu. Is it a movie? I'd make it bigger, right now it seems small enough for a handheld device. When...

    Just bought a NEX 3, keep my E-P1?

    I prefer the in body IS of the EP-1. I'm also hoping that m43, being an open standard,will attract more and more manufacturers. I'm sticking with my EP-1 for a while. I'm not unhappy with it so looking for another camera is just plain consumerism. The Lumix 20mm f1,7 combined with in body IS...

    First Try at B&W

    Image is lacking bright spots so my guess is underexposed as well. Makes the image look a bit grey. For black and white I always set a white point and a black point (I use Photoshop). The darkest part will then be black ant the brightest, which before was grey, will be white. If it's still to...

    manual m43 lenses, will we see more of them?

    Can't really get any information from any manufactures, which is fully understandable. Voightländer says that they won't be getting into the m43 camera body race in the near future. When asked they said, and i quote; "We will present some very interesting new products within this year" No plans...

    manual m43 lenses, will we see more of them?

    I find myself wanting a more traditional camera but I will never afford the Leica M9. Voightländer are making a dedicated manual m43 lens, hopefully the'll make more. How about a m43 camera dedicated to go along with the manual lenses? The optical, hybrid or EVF viewfinder might be a...

    I've been putting this off.....

    I experience huge problems with most displays when I'm wearing polarized prescription sunglasses. That includes most flatscreen displays as well as credit card readers and pretty much most surfaces that have some sort of plastic cover. Plastic, being a petroleum based material shows a lot of...

    Olympus E-P1 -EPL2

    I bought the EP-1 shortly after it was released as it was exactly the form factor I was looking for. The camera is by no means perfect, but it is good. The controls of the EP-1 and EP-2 is superior to the EPL models in my opinion. The lack of EVF in the EP-1 is a big shortcoming compered to the...

    Showcase Voigtlander 50mm f/2.8 Color-Skopar X

    Looks nice. I myself am thinking about getting the m39 to m43 adapter to get my Leitz Elmar collapsable 5cm f3.5 Leica lens on the EP1. The adapter doesn't cost much but I don't know if I'll use it often. If anyone know where to find some sample images taken with the collapsable Elmar 5cm I'd...

    Who went from RAW to JPG after getting a m4/3 camera?

    I shoot RAW and will continue to do so for one reason, compatibility. I just tried to add a bunch of "old" pictures from back-up DVD's to my Aperture library, the pictures are scanned from film between 2002 and 2009. Switching to 64bit OS(Mac) some of the image files couldn't even be opened...

    Panasonic 20mm f1,7 correction in PS

    I found a few sources on the net claiming that all m4/3 systems correct the m4/3 lens barrel distortion in body, independent of lens/camera combination. My theory is that I corrected an already corrected image file resulting in poorer quality. CA is not corrected when using the 20mm on an...

    Panasonic 20mm f1,7 correction in PS

    I use the 20mm on an EP1-body. I read that there's no in camera correction of barrel distortion or CA. I tried to correct this i PS but the image before correction is much sharper an crispier than after correction. The CA can be reduced but correcting the distortion leaves the image less sharp...

    GF2 May Be Announced this Week!

    Buying a lens with a camera is most certainly the way to go. I got my GF1 for 80€ when I bought it in a kit with the 20mm. The lens alone was 370€ and the lens and camera kit was 450€.

    Prices, Panasonic 20mm

    Not being completely satisfied with the EP1 kit lens I decided to get myself the Panasonic 20mm lens. The lens alone costs 420€, a bit expensive in my opinion but I had to have it. At the moment Panasonic got the cashback campaign refunding me 50€ of the 420€ = 370€ A GF1, although pink, plus...

    Why did you choose Olympus over Panasonic?

    The build quality of the EP-1, I assume that the EP-2 is equally good, is enough reason to chose the Olympus in my opinion. I don't know if Panasonic uses the same dust filter as Olympus but I know that Olympus uses the best dust filter available. I consider this to be a very big advantage for...

    Why did you choose Olympus over Panasonic?

    I bought the EP-1 for it's design. Today I got my Lumix 20mm f1,7 which I bought as part of a kit with a Panasonic GF1. The kit cost me 20€ more than the price of the lens alone. It's the "Sakura edition", meaning that it's a pink GF1. I was thinking about selling the GF1 and I was thinking...
