    Micro 4/3 How is the E-M1X and OM-1 with Animal AI Tracking (Specifically dogs)

    Hello, a bit of a out of left field question (don't ask me why am I using a baseball saying, I don't even understand baseball and I don't even know where, when or how I even heard it): How is the Olympus E-M1X and/or OM-1 handing the autofocus with Animal AI Tracking (I don't remember if it has...

    Micro 4/3 So what other camera alternatives are there to the OM5?

    I'm been holding out for the latest version of the em5/OM5, and now that the announcement is official, I'm a bit underwhelmed. It's still a decent camera and it would be a significant upgrade from my current generation m43 cameras, and there's still a fair chance I will end up getting one...

    Micro 4/3 Oly 150-400 quick testing

    I usually test lenses that I buy on a brick wall or something just to make sure they are not totally off in some way. My tests are not scientific and have a general lack of perfection but they serve my purpose to see if a lens is working generally as expected. Today I tested my new 150-400...

    Micro 4/3 USB connection does not work

    On my GX9 it has ceased to work. Have tried changing from "PC Storage" to "Automatically select" (but I don't even get the select dialogue). It is like dead. But it does work to charge from USB though. Anyone knows what the problem could be?

    Micro 4/3 Camera / Lens Recommendation for a Young Newbie

    My DD has at last expressed an interest in photography. Inevitably this will lead to a request for a camera of her own to replace her old, now broken Kodak Easyshare.

    Micro 4/3 f/4 8-25 Pro - A trap for the unwary!

    Well, I will start by saying that I love this lens. Not as versatile as my f/4 [12-100] (of course), but lovely IQ and general quality. Also considerably smaller than the 12-100. However, as I discovered the other day, the warning screen about extending the lens from the locked position also...

    Who here has owned or used both these lenses? I’d love some insight or opinions. I used to own the e-m1x, and also had the 300mm pro and 1.4x tele. I made some great photos with this combo, and found the lens in particular to be outstanding. However, after CAF frustrations with the x, and also...

    I love shooting wide. I had given up on Panasonic or Olympus releasing a rectilinear ultrawide prime, so picked up the Laowa when it was released.

    No thread for this lens yet. I'll see what I can do. Beautiful little lens. Light, compact, plenty sharp, lovely colours & contrast, & very reasonably priced. Really liking mine. Haven't used it a great amount as yet, as Spring/Summer roll around, it will get plenty

    So I just bought a used 40-150R lens off fleabay for $70. Silver lens to match my silver M53. Looks in very nice condition. It does have an issue when zooming out in that when it reaches around 70mm the barrel will noticeably slow/bind. At that point and further it is not a smooth zoom out. It...

    Posting yet another mini review for a bit of M43 kit, mostly because the items I've purchased have seemingly been under-reviewed by the usual camera sites. That doesn't make me an expert, but perhaps a bit of detail on a lesser-known product could help a random Googler. This time, it's the Haoge...

    Micro 4/3 GH6 Special offer from B&H

    So the other day B&H sent me a "private offer" email with a promo code that knocks $400 off the GH6. I've never gotten such an email before from them either. Pretty nice deal, but that's not a camera I'm remotely interested in. Kinda makes me wonder if there's a push to sell more of them?

    I spent some time today with my "like new" never been used V1 of the 35-100mm f2.8. Got this lens for $370 paypaled and shipped. For stills it is an amazing tool. I also did some shoots with my 58mm Canon 500D close up filter on the lens and the macros were very good (even in comparison 60mm Oly...

    Micro 4/3 Review: MCON-P02 Macro Converter

After messing around with it for a few weeks, I must say I'm entirely impressed with such...

    Micro 4/3 Thoughts on coming OM-5

    I had a random thought and I thought I’d ask our extensive mu 43 community for an opinion. If the new OM5 is really going to use the same stacked sensor, could they make it with only electronic shutter? It would make the camera lighter and they could go back to a metal case. It would also make...

    This lens doesn't seem to have a showcase yet, so I'm creating one.

To start, here is an erhu (a traditional Chinese bowed string instrument) player...

    I don't shoot too much anymore, but I couldn't resist a well priced used EP7 that popped up. A bit more resolution and control points. I can't imaging my EPL7 is worth anything, so maybe I keep both. Will post my impressions of the EP7 once I get it.

    Micro 4/3 M5 Mk3 how to get to auto focus

    New to this camera. Used a manual focus lens the other day, now can't work out how to get back to auto focus. It's good practise using manual focus with focus peaking, but I might need auto at some stage, and I feel embarrassed that I can't work it out :)

    The 12-100 seems to have universally beloved status among reviewers and professional adventure photographers for its versatility and overall IQ.

    Micro 4/3 Kamlan 50mm f1.1 mk2, for some fun with the PenF…

    Picked up a very cheap copy of this lens on the bay of E the other day. It is hefty lens (heavier than a 12-40 2.8 pro!), with a massive slab of glass in there (62mm filter thread). It has some technical downsides, such as flare, glowing, purple fringing & it’s quite soft wide open (to be...
