**OT** Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

I think you and I could trump most here :) My first real computer (excluding programmable HP calcs) was a Nascom-1 with 1Kb (yes, K) and a machine code monitor. Designing an interface with a pal for...

Re: Battery - charging error

No, the most likely thing is the simplest thing which is dirty contacts. Clean them.

Re: BLH-1 Clone Tests

The Olympus BLH-1 has just completed it's self-discharge test and in four weeks has dropped in capacity from 1665mAh to 1549mAh - a drop of 7%. This is quite a bit higher than I would have expected...

Re: BLH-1 Aftermarket battery funnies.

Yes, that would work, except that these types of battery deteriorate over time whether used or not so you may as well cycle your Olympus battery anyway to no detriment.

Re: BLH-1 Aftermarket battery funnies.

Try over 20% less capacity, actually measured. Additionally, the internal self discharge is higher. As this is the MK-II forum I won't comment further here but attached my graph showing the results....

Re: BLH-1 Aftermarket battery funnies.

You're welcome to them. The sample I bought performs very strangely and I don't trust it. For very similar money the EXPro is a far better bet. YMMV.

Re: BLH-1 Aftermarket battery funnies.

The original EXPro batteries may have been fully decoded but were dire compared to Olympus originals. The current ones are not fully decoded as yet, I believe not a security thing on Oly's part just...

Re: EM1 MKII Lock Up

In the context of lock-ups, Tim, please try to keep up :) Stopping feeding the trolls now. Perhaps a mod might be kind enough to lock this one out?

Yep, that's why despite being a Windows user since version 3 I abandoned it in favour of Mac and OSX/MacOS 18 months ago and have never looked back or had such a peaceful user experience. None of my...

When trying to rectify a randomly re-booting server the first step was always to remove the SIMM's, clean the edge connectors with an ink rubber (pencil rubbers have too much gum, shed too many bits,...

Now we are one month on or more I have re-tested the EXpro and the DSTE which have just been sat on the shelf since the initial test after a full charge.

Re: Is the Hire Service still running?

Apart from anything else, the item of interest is too new to appear on that list. It also seemed useful to surface the topic here for general interest. I will make enquires and post the outcome here.

Is the Hire Service still running?

Just wondering, as I can't find any updated price lists or any recent activity. I was hoping to try out the 12-100mm f4 as there is no Try/Wow dealer anywhere close to me.
