Now an official Olympus user

Now an official Olympus user.
Yesterday I bought the OM-D E-M5 with the kit lens, Olympus 60mm f2.8 M.ZUIKO Digital ED, Olympus FL-600R Wireless Flash and a nice Manfrotto 732CY M-& Carbon Fibre with A3RC1 3-Way Head.
Still got to get a 75-300mm and a nice fast prime.
I think it will be a while before I will get to set the camera up the way I want so don't expect any photos too soon.
I was shocked when I asked in the shop about a remote shutter release for the camera. First they didn't have one and then they looked up the price, over 60.
Right, back to the manual.
David

Well done!

I'm sure you'll find it very good. Yes you will need a little while to get it set up as it's so customisable.

Third party remote releases such as this one http://www.7dayshop.com/7dayshop-wir...dWx0Lz9xPXJlbW work perfectly well.

Regards.
