Re: Third party battery failure for OM-D EM5 II

From where did you buy the battery, was that Jessops as well as the camera?
I believe your warranty lies with the vendor, rather than manufacturer/wholesaler.
It's up to them how they deal with...

Re: Third party batteries for the EM1ii (and EM1X)

The Dot.Foto ones I mentioned came to me from ebay, but note that they are advertised with at least two capacities.
The two I have both seem to charge OK with the Olympus charger, as well as the...

Re: Photo File Numbers

One thing to consider, when using multiple camera bodies, is to ensure that there is no duplication of filenames from the same photo shoot.

Re: Third party batteries for the EM1ii (and EM1X)

If you can cope with the extra bulk and weight, a very good reason to use the grip, with battery priority set to it. If the grip battery goes flat at a crucial moment, the camera will revert to...

Re: Life saving app...

My understanding is, that it only needs data access to download the app itself.
If it's already on your phone, all you need is GPS access so it can self-locate.

Re: Olympus MMF-3 Micro Four Thirds Adapter

Yes, all three should work fine with the new E-M1, but I've personally only used MMF-1 & 3
If memory serves me correctly
MMF-1 is silver coloured and not weather sealed
MMF-2 is a lighter weight...

Re: Third party batteries for the EM1ii (and EM1X)

Personally, I've found the ExPro batteries fine for the Mk1, but when I contacted them recently, they were unable to say when, or if, they were likely to be re-stocking BLH-1 equivalents for the Mk2.

Unfortunately evening meal was served from 10.15-11pm, so I missed most of it.
