    My EM-1 is unfortunately going to have to go back for service, the rear dial is getting too flaky. I'm quite confident this isn't a software issue, so does anyone know a way to avoid getting all the settings wiped?

    I'm worried they do it as SOP even if it has no relevance but maybe there's a trick to disable that?

    It is somewhat surprising that no-one seems to have implemented backup to, and restore settings from, SD card or even to PC via sync cable. I can backup my phone to my PC, so why not my camera?

    I usually use the low tech approach of writing down all the settings before updates or repairs ;)
