    Problem with Eclipse cleaning solution on Sony sensor???

    I shouldn't worry too much, the dust shaker sits in front of the filter, so Sony, Panasonic or Kodak as a manufacturer is immaterial.

    My OM-D E-M5 is an expensive brick...

    From my experience of Oly service, I'm sure you will be fine with your warranty. The camera only came out in April 1012 and Oly UK give a 2 year warranty; was yours a grey import? Mine's got the screen bezel crack and black paint wearing through prematurely, but I'm holding out until towards...

    OM-D: Damage Code 8807

    Lots of lockups for me, mainly with 100-300mm, but a clear "D" screen with no errors recorded. As regards pressing the OK to clear the error message; I'm not sure that's a good idea. Normal punters aren't supposed to know how to get into the service mode, it's probably intended for Oly...

    OM-D third party batteries: has anybody tried these?

    I've tried what appears to be the same battery from 2 Chinese suppliers and a UK one. Yes they work, they are lower capacity than genuine batteries, depending on the luck of the draw they might be a Very Tight Fit in the battery grip (they all seem fine in the camera itself, they don't charge...

    OMD hangs/freezes - ones in a while

    Just an update, still getting regular lock-ups with the 100-300mm. Been away for the weekend and had up to 10 lock-ups a day. Seems that when it goes into hibernation, sometimes but not always, the only way to wake it up is to re-seat the battery. Similar problem when chimping, sometimes locks...

    OMD hangs/freezes - ones in a while

    Numerous lockups, but only with the 100-300mm when in review mode. When it locks, it really does; even turning off the camera at the main switch leaves it powered up and locked with the previous image showing on the screen. :confused: Pulling the battery seems to cure it.

    Why Not Olympus Master 2?

    Ned, I hadn't realised tethered shooting was available on any of the micro 4/3s bodies. There is another route, Studio 2 has tethered shooting. As I'm sure you know, it was a paid for program which is now out of date and no longer for sale, Viewer being Oly's preferred program. If you e-mail...
