Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

I'm glad you posted these messages. Just checked my junk mail folder and found my email asking for serial number and confirming the Lake District. I had already registered the camera so I don't think they tie the two pieces of information up. Now need to book some days off work.

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

I received the email asking for serial number as well. I had registered so concur that Oly do not seem to link the two. I have gone for the Experience Day at Rockingham Speedway.

Me too - registered before Christmas and late today received an e-mail confirming Marwell as long as I send them my serial number.

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

An opportunity to put faces to names at Marwell - I suppose carrying EM1 Mkii will help narrow the field from the thousands of members of the public we will have to fight through to see the Partula Snail.
We can be issued with "Lost Child Stickers" so if we get lost in the SCP manipulation process a member of the public will be able to get us back to the group.

To read up on Marwell see

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

The last experience day there I was with Andy Rouse and had an interesting chat about photography with one of the Ruffed Lemurs who was fascinated and kept peering at pics of its mates on the LCD

I wonder what special moments we will have this time?

As you say Derek, it will be good to see who we've been chatting to here

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

Hi everyone,

My first post on here having recently switched systems from Pentax to Olympus

I've had my email today requesting camera serial number as well, but how to notify Olympus is a bit unclear. I couldn't see anything about how or where to send it. Is it just doing a 'reply to' the email they've sent?

That's how I read "... you are required to send us the serial number...".

Thanks, that's reassuring - it's what I did this morning with fingers crossed that it gets picked up at the other end

That's what I did. Time will tell if that's the correct method.

This whole process has been a bit hit and miss but it looks like it is getting there at last. Looking forward to a day in Kew Gardens.

Hi Percy, I have just made the same move - can't remember what the rules are but if you can send me a PM - be good to swap notes.

I see I'm not able to send a PM until I have made 6 posts. Don't know whether I can reply if one is sent to me.

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

Strange how many of us have migrated from Pentax to M43. Me too, though I came to this group via Panny G series at first - and still think one of the great benefits of the system is the support from two big manufacturers.
