EM1 Video problems........

I have had my old EM1 valued, there seems to be a problem with the video mode.

Apparently when panning to the left there is a noticeable overlap on the recorded image.

Anyone seen this problem?

FWIW the camera was bought second hand with a warranty (run out now) and hardly used for video at all. This would be my second Olympus with a shutter problem. My very old EPL5 shutter packed up and had to be repaired by Olympus.

Re: EM1 Video problems........

Can you describe the fault a bit more - can't quite visualise 'overlap'? Any chance of seeing some footage? Is IS mode enabled when recording?

If you have another body, can you compare the two side by side?

Wex report............

I'm afraid that the Olympus camera has an IS fault, what the problem seems to be is when you're panning left when recording an image, the IS continues past the stopping point by quite a large margin.

Not sure what that means..............

Re: EM1 Video problems........

That makes a lot of sense. Hopefully it just needs calibration.
