Re: LCD screen

How strange. I know the diagram is in relation to the E-M5 ii but my E-M1 ii works the same and there are stops to prevent turning the wrong way.

Surely no one would try to force the screen against the stops. (admittedly, occasionally, the little 'lumps' you have to turn against can feel a little stiff, but if it won't go then don't force it, madness if you do IMHO). There could, of course, be so little tolerance when you get to the stop that it all goes wrong if trying too hard but surely the stops are secure enough and the cable has enough tolerance to prevent this happening.

A lesson for us all to be just that extra bit more careful/gentle with our screens.

Thanks for the info, much appreciated you came back to show us.

Sorry if I was misunderstood, I really wasn't implying in any way, shape or form that you personally had forced the screen against the stops. I was merely trying to say that it would be foolish for anyone to do that.

I must agree that it does seem that the tolerances seem quite tight for screen movement, I would have expected a cable or such like to have that extra 2-3mm to avoid strain if a screen was inadvertently pressed against the stops.

My apologies for giving the wrong impression

Re: LCD screen

I suppose when you're designing and building to a budget, the extra 2 or 3mm (or whatever is required) is lost profit. In terms of angular displacement, an extra design margin of 10 degrees could be close to limit, but intuively I would say a margin of 45 degrees would suffice.
Have you experienced work hardening of those smart phone charger cables - it's only a matter of time.

Re: LCD screen

My one beef with the em1mkii is that screen. Much prefer the tilt on the mki

Re: LCD screen

Ah Well, thanks ISO for responding to an OP with a suggestion that provided his solution.
Despite of course the many 'disbelieving comments'.
Olympus response in the Return Case, rather makes the point.

Re: LCD screen

Still disbelieve that it can be possible to break it accidentally. Sat down earlier with the camera and the ‘instructions’ shown higher up this page and frankly can’t see how it’s possible to break it without forcing the screen past a physical stop. Obviously wasn’t going to force it to prove you could but if anyone does manage to break it like this then no amount of warnings or instructions in the manual are going to help. Some people just break things! Whilst you can turn the screen in directions not arrowed (in diag) it doesn’t really gain you anything as you have to turn it back again to fold it away.
Or am I missing something esoteric?

Re: LCD screen

The real message is, as with all modern technology, "just be gentle".
I love the screen it lets you take shots you could not do with any other system.
It is certainly not sub standard or low quality.

Re: LCD screen

Was it designed for the selfie brigade, eg Kim Kardashian ?

Seems to be something videographers like for some reason.

Re: LCD screen

In all fairness, for people with disabilities right through to those who just can't move as freely as they use to (and that will probably come to everyone), the flexi screen is heaven sent.
