    Hello everyone,

    Besides putting the image stabilizer to off, was there ever a hack to fix this problem?

    E-p3 jello effect is too present to my taste, I wonder why there aren't many complaints on the net and why Olympus did nothing to address this issue.

    What's this jello effect you're talking about?? I have the E-pm1 and this might cover me as well.

    All CMOS sensors suffer from the jello effect. Its how the data is read out that creates this. There is no way to improve that in firmware, AFAIK.

    Cannot be reduced by firmware or hack to have similar video of e-p1/e-p2? Older pens have much less of that issue.

    OM-D has virtually no jello. 4th generation pens might not either. 3rd generation pens have the worst jello. No fix that I am aware of. But some video editing programs have a way to reduce jello (e.g. Apple's iMovie 11)
