E-PM1 loses time/date

When I change the battery in my E-PM1 I have to reset the time and date. Does anyone else have this problem? It remembers the other settings but not the date, is this normal?

Regards - Paul

Re: E-PM1 loses time/date

That shouldn't happen if you change it as soon as it goes flat, but if you leave it long enough, then that is going to happen to any of the cameras.

My previously loved E-30 does that too. I have a grip though and swap the batteries when one gets low.

Mine is fine if you swap the nearly dead battery before you store the camera, I have several spare batteries. BUT when it was new I charged the only battery I had at the time overnight and lost the date/time.

I can recommend a spare battery, there are several makers with decent performance batteries at around £10. I have a couple of spares for each of my cameras.

Yes, sometimes.
When the e-pM1 was released the forums suddenly got a few threads about it.
It is a real problem, but it might go away after a few battery cycles.
