I feel like an amateur photographer again Just received a nice used EM 1 and am having trouble figuring it out. I have checked the owners manuel and Tony Northrups video and still haven't found the answers I need.I cannot hear the camera take a photo at all
. Its like it is in a silent mode or something, but I cannot figure it out.
Can someone give a tip where to start.

Maybe it is in silent mode....
(Check out the different shutter modes. Very simple... unless it is not working. Does it take a picture even if you don't hear it? If so, it is in silent mode.)

If you are able to take photos i.e. without any shutter sound, your camera is in the silent shutter mode. I have never heard of a broken shutter sound and I don't think that's even possible.

Thanks for the reply guys. I finally found where to turn off the silent shutter. Looks like I have got a lot to learn with this Olympus menu set up. Got the camera from KEH and it looks like it hasn't been used hardly at all and the 75-300 lens I got is the same way. Clean as a pin. I'll try to post a few pics when I get this thing all figured out. Thanks again for the reply.

Also download and keep the PDF version of the manual ... as the printed manual that came with the camera is next to useless!

And Robin Wong's gear reviews/images can be very inspiring:

Also give Robin Wong's OMD cheat sheet a look-see. Good starting point
