Re: 1MK11 off moment

Oh dear, it's happened to me on another camera and it's rather annoying, especially when my main interest at the time was street photography. The camera went back to its maker and the error log confirmed a defective shutter.

Unfortunately as a user rather than an engineer with appropriate diagnostic tools, it's difficult to pin-point the cause. It could be the camera's electro-mechanics if you were shooting with a real shutter (and you may have noticed a change in the noise it made), or an electronic glitch... maybe the memory card, and some would say try another, but that's stabbing in the dark IMO.
Good luck...

Thanks, it would be a pro-capture burst, not going to worry unless it happens again.

Re: 1MK11 off moment

I suspect it was an accidental press of the shutter button, especially if the HLD-9 grip was attached & enabled, as that can easily be pressed with the side of the hand.

How about memory cards; what types were used?

They should be fine (I use them). I think it is most likely the hand pressing the grip's shutter button because I've done it myself. On the E-M5 HLD-6 grip the button is exposed but also not totally disabled with the switch so I glued a raised pad there to prevent the accidental press. Then came the E-M1's HLD-7 grip with the button recessed in the dial (& properly disabled with the switch), but they have returned to raising the button in the HLD-9 & now it is more vulnerable. I think the designers may have listened to some that like a raised shutter button, which is fine on the camera body, but not on the grip when it can so easily be pressed unintentionally. Sure there is a disabling switch, but that should not have to be switched off every time while using the landscape position. OK, I've finished my rant. Anyhow, just something to be aware of.

Re: 1MK11 off moment

Problem with HLDs and the user firing the shutter inadvertently with the lens hood in place covering the lens. Is that the cause?
Don't think my EM5 will fire if not in focus, however there's a loop in the s/w-f/w to override the focus priority. It's buried in one of the many cogs...

Maybe my assumption is wrong but then with that scenario it's quite possible then I guess (if there's enough time between sets of frames).
