Re: Lockups with the E-M1 Mark II?

John, you mention the MkI suggesting a similar lock-up situation in the past. What was the fix, other than performing a hardware reset (battery out)?

If you've dabbled in programmable electronics you will know that solutions exist, such as watch dog timers, and ultimately a switch to remove power, effectively equivalent to removing the battery. But with good design this should not be necessary.

If the internal buffer is isolated from the reset signal, then it could be possible to write when normal operation is restored. There could be layered resets maybe with a combination of key press to perform a general reset if everything goes tits-up.
