    I'm just getting used to playing with my new OMD and looking at the various recommended settings but yesterday I turned the camera on and I've got a hissing kind of sound like it's coming from the loudspeaker. I don't know what I've done but is there any way I can mute the sound?

    I think you are hearing the IBIS. The newer firmware is suppose to quiet the noise some, but I still think it is audible.

    Yes the newer firmware versions reduce the noise significantly. It's still their but a lot quieter.

    I had wondered if it might be the IBIS, the only thing that made me think it wasn't is that the sound I can hear is there from when I turn the camera on, and I'm sure it hasn't been there from the beginning. I'm off work this week and will try and do a firmware update.
