    Re: Do you have an E-PM1

    P.S. do you think Olympus will ever make a tele-converter for the Pen series - they've had a few years to make one if they were going to and I would have thought it might even be more popular than macro and fisheye which are more specialist requirements, so I kind of conclude they don't want to...

      Well, before they make teleconverters they need to have work on having a more complete lens collection. In particular super telephoto lenses, as those are the most commonly used with teleconverters. So far, they've only gotten into the mid-telephoto range.

      3rd party batteries should be fine. I've only heard good things from them. I only use OEM because I get a spare with every old camera I put away when I get a new camera. I use a few cameras at a time, and have at least one OEM spare for each body in use. Photography is my job though, so I go through cameras fast. If i didn't have these spares, I would buy the $35 knock-offs they sell at Best Buy. I wouldn't pay another $60 for an OEM battery, though I've done so many times in the past (the BLM-1 batteries for the old E-System DSLRs were $80, so consider yourself lucky with the cheaper BLS-1s).

        Re: Do you have an E-PM1

        Hello,
        I have just purchased this camera (a refurb for $240) and was wanting some tips on it. I know next to nothing about a 'real' camera so am at a bit of a loss here...

        If I do not want to fool around with all the manual settings are the default scenes OK or if not can they be made better by, well, I have no idea....

        I have a memory card on the way (Sandisk 32 GB class 10) so cannot take any pictures yet but was wondering how long I will have to wait after taking a picture to take another one?

        FYI 90% of my pictures will be taken indoors without much sunlight in the room and I will be using the flash that it came with so any tips for this environment would be great. These will all be pictures of my daughter and my only real concerns are keeping the noise in the pictures down and I am wanting good color and clarity.

        The post above from Ned looks promising and if you are still around some tips on setting my camera up for my usage would be appreciated.

          I know this thread is a bit old/stale, but I just bought an E-pm1.
          I've had an e-pl1 for a few years and love it. I found an exceptional deal on the e-pm1 and it offered a few key improvements over the pl1. Many times pl1 couldn't focus in dim lighting conditions so the af assist lamp is a welcome addition. I like the improved video performance and much faster auto focus.
          I did buy a Flipback G2 to give better grip on the front of the camera. So far I've really enjoyed this new camera.

              Just got a E-PM1 and looking at how to use it. I am a teacher, but currently working at bestbuy in the camera department. When one came up on clearance for $150 and I already had $125 in gift cards I have to give it a crack. So far I like it, although I find the menu system a little confusing. I used to have a Ricoh with a few m42 lenses back in high school, so I might try to get a m42 converter to see if my 50 mm f1.4 will work.

              My store also have a e-pm2 for $270 I am tempted to get for my mom. She had an olympus rangefinder in the 70's and I understand the e-pm2 is a lot easier to use.

              Thanks for the tips and tricks.
