    I was out on San Francisco bay this weekend with my EM5. After getting to the car I started viewing my files. Out of a couple of hundred shots, I had a string of about 9 frames that were solid red! The frames show no detail, just uniform red. They were followed by one white frame, and then a lot more good pictures.

    Any ideas?

    Oh, and GO SEMINOLES!!!!

    You should check for an damage code in the service menu. Not that anyone knows what the codes mean.

    When I had problems with my memory card, there would be these red pixels in pictures. I don't know if this is in any way related to your problem, but just thought to throw it out there.

    Any possibility of inadvertent shutter release while camera was up close to something red?

    I assume the pictures are actually red not burnt out white - with the highlight/shadow display showing them as red on the camera preview?

    No, they are uniformly red. Looks like I took several pictures close up of red paint still in the can.
