OM-D EM-5 battery (indicator) issue
Nicool posted a topic in Photography Gear and TechniqueHi all, Sorry for this extra OMD EM5 thread, but I have a precise area of concern that i think may be relevant to many, and it would be easier to find than in the 39 pages of the thread started by Alex Mustard! So I have 2 battery issues with my camera: 1/ the battery indicator displays only when it's getting low. There's a workaround to get it displayed permanently in the EVF, but that's only if you enable the auto-switch, which you don't when the camera is in a housing... => so it's hard to predict when my camera is getting low on battery 2/ when battery is low, the indicator is not consistent in the information displayed. Simple example: i do a dive and check that the camera doesn't give me any battery warning before turning on. Since I am going to shoot the same config the week after, i just leave everything in the housing, with camera off, of course. The week after, in the water, when I turn on the camera, it gives me a 'low battery' indicator, and turns off after a few shots... This is very annoying for underwater photography! Have you guys faced the same problems (can't believe my 2 olympus battery are lemons)? Have you found workarounds? I miss my Nikon batteries which kept precise track of remaining power (2 digits percentage), and history of the number of shots taken since last charge. With Olympus it's like a surprise each time I turn my camera on! cheers Nicolas
