    I was referred to this forum after getting all kinds of mixed replies on a different forum when I asked about camera selections that would fit in the cramped confines of my cockpit. I am happy to say that I am the new owner of an Olympus OMD and took it flying today. Now I just have to learn to use it right to get its full potential!

    See y'all around the forum.

    Have you perused the threads and stickies discussing settings on the EM5? I think everything is referenced on the "New OMD Owners" thread. :smile:

    Be careful looking through that viewfinder while flying. I got the worst case of air-sickness of my life doing aerial shots of some property from about 1000 ft. Normally I have no problem with air-sickness but something about being glued to the viewfinder messed with my equilibrium I guess. The pilot had no sickness bags either. And those darn windows only open a couple inches. :biggrin::tongue::eek:

    Thanks for the welcomes and information. I cannot use the view finder even if I wanted to do so since I'm flying a helicopter and transferring the controls to the other guy to take the shots. The bumping and natural vibrations of a helo make it difficult just to focus, much less shoot! :)
    I'll be heading over to that OMD forum now, took a few pictures on last evening's flight and am going to pick some brains for the best settings for my line of work!
