Hope you don't mind me saying this, but given all the lock-up problems you are having, I would perhaps suggest reporting those to Olympus before you attempt this, just in case?

If that's a fact then perhaps Olympus would be interested to know?

They wrote the Spec and thats where it is stated - well, I think it said Level 6+ cards and I have posted this on the 4M here in the relevant Brian thread But I asked Matt which were the BEST cards for the ONE and he sold me half a dozen of these bless !

Of course Matt would sell you the most expensive cards. But I think Olympus' technical people would be interested in your findings that card speed is crucial in solving the lock-up issue.

THIS is from the Oly co uk website

Interface

Media

SD Memory Card (SDHC, SDXC, UHS‑I compatible) Class 6 is recommended for Movie shooting

- See more at: http://www.olympus.co.uk/site/en/c/c....ZlnZMCis.dpuf


Stephen, Olympus are very busy - I do not wish to bother them.

Smaller organisations, than Olympus, PAY PEOPLE to trawl the internet and social media for "comments of their products" . Olympus have here

I am too busy to sit on a telephone

Re: ONE in Water ?

But by your diligence you might have uncovered a flaw in their testing.

And yes, Chevvy, I know you are far too busy to spend 5 minutes away from the forum whilst you telephone Olympus, so why not email them?

I hope you don't think I'm being pedantic, but not having yet received my EM-1, I have followed thread about the Lock-Up phenomena very closely, and from what you have just said I find myself very confused!
On the thread entitled "EM-1 Lock-up Information" in post 49 you do say that Matt at SRS "suggested 8Gb or 8Gb+ Extreme Pro 95MB/second and at least level 6 cards", however, in post 86, you did say you had a few using "Top Spec card 98 Mbps". Then in post 111 you mention you had lots of blackouts with batteries charged to between 25-35%.
I am sorry to labour the point, but as I will, hopefully, be getting my long awaited EM-1 body in the next batch released. I want to be sure that I don't suffer any lock-ups, but also don't want to buy more SD cards unless absolutely necessary. So I would be really grateful if you could confirm that the fastest speed cards stop lock-ups occurring.
Many thanks!

1) Unless I have the card in front of me - (which I did in the first post Extreme Pro 95MB/second I guessed ... pps *I do not "do" video and prefer smaller chips !

2) Yes I did have blackouts with low batteries !

3) no cannot do that - you need to seek confirmation from Olympus not me, they make the ONE !

BTW I am rubbish at photography so I respect Brian and Dave [local to me] on here far more as they are highly respected photographers !

Frankly, there may be no problem at all with the ONE it could just be "settings selected in conflict ; low batteries and slow cards used by people like me" . Does that help ?

Your welcome ! I have written elsewhere here on this 4M that I think the ONE is a brilliant kit Maybe Olympus have another Tiger by the tail and shall storm the market - as they did with the OM series !

No matter if there is a problem, they will surely issue a firmware update !

Whilst there are "teething probs" for me, it is no disaster as this time of year, as I take few images ! Far too busy making Halloween things ; Diwali ; Hanukkah and Tazaungdaing festivals of Light ; Fireworks images on black cards and Christmas Cards and Table pieces.

I only get "snippits" of time for adult entertainment now to 19th December and then away for Winter Hols
