It sounds like it could be a mechanical problem. It doesn't sound like something that could be fixed with a software measure, like upgrading firmware or a different type of SD card, though nonetheless it's good that you have checked these already. Have you considered taking it to get it looked at or serviced? If not, that is what I'd do. If your SD card ...


The thing you've got to remember is that you never really see a "raw" file on your monitor when using an application that handles raw file editing and conversion. (Yes, there are ways to view linear, un-demosaiced luminance values on a monitor. Even then there needs to be some compression of dynamic range to fit 12-14 bits of dynamic range into 8 bits. But ...


Inkista's answer is comprehensive. That being said: I have an Olympus E-P5 MFT camera from 2013, and I have bought an adapter for my old OM-mount lenses that I use occasionally. Initially, my thought process was similar to yours. Experiences: Good adapters cost as much as a new kit lens. You can buy cheap adapters on Ebay. No matter what, a full-metal ...


A RAW file contains sensor data which is not affected by effects. To speed up preview though, nearly all RAW files store an embedded JPEG to which effects are usually applied to coincide with what the camera settings are. It also used images parameters, including color modes, WB and selectable tone curve as you can edit them in the E-M10. The tricky part is ...

For example, I can apply in-camera effects to my RAW images, and these effects will appear in my RAW editing software (Adobe Bridge & Camera Raw) as a preview image. Once opened for editing though, the edit disappears. Have you tried opening ...


Hate to say it, but you're unicorn-hunting. There is no such beast. Understand that you're shooting a camera with a 2x crop factor. So, a "normal" lens is 25mm. And if you're looking at all classic film-era lenses to adapt to your camera, you're also looking at lenses from an age when 24mm was an exotic super-wide lens. And when f/2.8 was pretty much the ...


You'll need an adapter. The best option is to use Olympus adapter for Zuiko classic 4/3 lens. If you can live without some automatic functions, then you may also use other vendor's lenses and one of good but not cheap solutions is Metabones speed booster which will even make your lenses faster (and wider).
