Re: EM1 MKII Lock Up

If this is a memory card problem then I have a question which I am hoping Ian can answer.

When Olympus gave the new EM1 MKII to all those experienced visionaries did they also equipment them with memory cards and if they did which ones?

It is interesting to note that on their Australia web page they qualify the test results with "*When using Toshiba SDXU-B032G"

Re: EM1 MKII Lock Up

The official Olympus website shows only various SanDisk and Toshiba cards are verified for use:
http://cs.olympus-imaging.jp/en/supp...en_2016_04.cfm

Many people have reported problems using the camera with Lexar cards.

I suggest if you want to use an unverified card you stick to putting in slot 2. For slot 1 use the recommended SanDisk UHS II card (they currently claim 260 MB/s write, 300MB/s Read). Use of this card should empty the buffer quickly when shooting long bursts. And it is suitable for 4K video.

Perhaps you will then find that your camera works reliably. Surely it is better to try this before sending the camera back. Hope this helps.

That's what I have in Slot 1. I have a Sandisk Extreme Pro 95MB/s UHS-1 Class 10 32G card in Slot 2.

Sorry the suggestion can't help in your case. It may apply to the problems of others. It would be a good idea for anyone getting lockups to report the card(s) they were using.

Re: EM1 MKII Lock Up

No worries, I was giving my full card info for the general good. I didn't think there is a problem with any Sandisk cards.
