    I know this was an issue with the EM-5, but I can't find much about it with the newer EM10. I think I saw some trying to shoot fireworks the other night, and I'm assuming it is the same issue (which I thought was corrected in the EM-1). I was wondering if anyone discovered any tricks to avoid it.

    I'll post some images, but right now I'm at work pretending to be productive.

    Same sensor, same issue.

    The easiest way to avoid it is to expose to the right (overexpose a little)...I find that it's much like banding with my old Canon 5D Mark II, that if I underexpose it's very pronounced...if I nail exposure or overexpose a tiny bit, the problem goes away...of course, that's easier said than done, since this is a high-ISO issue, when light isn't in abundant supply, but try that trick and it might help you. :)

    Yeah, this was a pretty extreme situation I imagine--bright-as-the-sun fireworks against a black night sky. Just playing with different settings and saw it on some shots while reviewing last night. Others came out rather nice, once I remembered to re-engage the IS at least . . .
