New Olympus OM-D EM1 Camera


Recommended Posts


My dinky little Olympus Mju 55WP (waterproof to 3m) jammed with shutter open.  I tried to find out if there is any reset or F/W up grade from the USA Olympus Service Center.  

Did not get a definitive answer, other than make sure the battery is good (so will try buying a new battery),  Anyway there was an invite to sign up for a Free Olympus News Letter, so I signed up.

My very 1st 'proper' camera was an Olympus OM1.  

A bought a number of lenses for that camera and still have them.

In the Olympus News Letter was a forthcoming announcement of a brand new  Olympus Camera, which one had to sign up for advance news of.

Well here it is the New Olympus OM-D EM1 Camera  - looks pretty good:-

I still have an OM-1 I bought in the late 70's, and a few Zuiko lenses, and c3000 I bought ten years ago.  I like Olympus Cameras, not sure I'll ever go the DSLR route, though.

I have an Olympus X-560WP which has been an excellent utility camera, small lightweight , and takes a good quality photo or video. I need to replace the flash bulb. Do you know of a shop in Cebu were I can get a replacement bulb replaced/installed?




for the price $250 it is an excellent pocket camera and the 3m waterproof case allows for nice underwater shots and the case has really stood up well to the saltwater. It also has been convenient as one does not have to worry using the unit in the rain.
