    Bought a new EPM1 about 4 weeks ago, and I've started to notice that it occasionally takes one or a series of photos that are over exposed, with the ones before or after normal...

    Not happy with this situation, since I returned an EPL-3 because of similar shutter problems.

    Anyone else have this happen to them? george_error3.jpg george_error1_1_.jpg

    Could the bracketing function be on? (With subsequent photos under / overexposed)?

    Bracketing is my guess as well.

    Exif Data says exposure bias 0 step :eek:

    I've not had that problem with mine so far.

    Exposure lock maybe?

    weird happenings because it happened when my wife was using it in iAuto mode, and bracketing has never been on..... mostly use it in A mode, and it doesn't happen all of the time, but randomly.

    I've used multiple cameras, and this has never happened.

    I had that problem with my E-PM1 too. It's not bracketing and I can't figure out what caused it. This is the main reason I sold it and get an OM-D instead. Never have the same problem with the OM-D.
