Camera kept getting stuck.

Vou Xiong, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: This camera would get stuck when turning on and off the power. You can hear the shutter trying to open and fail. You have to turn it on and off several times to get it working properly.

A fragile shutter mechanism

bostonc "bostonc", Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: Bought this camera as my intro into the M43 world. I had it for 1.5yr. Until the past wknd, I still thought pretty highly of the camera, and I would have given it 3.5. During the wnkd trip to NYC, for my daughter's orchestra's important performance in Carnegie Hall, we found the camera was broken. It has only 5 thousand clicks on it. After a shot the camera spends a few seconds buzzing then shutdown, and the picture was not saved.

Not easy to use software

80omni, Amazon
13 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this camera so I could use other olympus lenses that i have, it came with a small flash attachment that actually makes the subjects darker than with out useing it in Auto mode. The software downloading of pictures is not a one step process as with Cannon or Nike, you have to go through 4 steps to download images and then you have to make sure they are in your picture file before you delete the camera pictures--which you have to do one at a time.

Worst Amazon Service Ever

T. klein, Amazon
26 May 2012
  • Summary: I ordered a new camera for a new camera price. I got a box from their Return Center. The camera box inside the shipping carton was open and the items not in their bubble wrap. I assembled the camera and it doesn't focus at wide angle. I work overseas and have to use the APO system. Amazon only refunds what they would pay to get it here, not what I have to pay to get it there. So, I'm out money and no guarantee I'll ever get what I paid for.

No flash card!

  • Summary: This is just about the flash card. Just opened this -- the camera doesn't come with a flash card. Disappointment!

Warning: Does Not Work in Very Cold Weather

Kusko, Amazon
27 October 2011
  • Summary: I really liked this camera -- until the shutter froze. Twice. From what I can tell, it's junk in VERY cold weather. I shoot in cold weather a lot and I used this camera on an extended trip through Canada. I took the E-PM1 outside often in temperatures between 20 above and 20 below zero Fahrenheit.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Как прочитал на этом форуме, сломался безвозвратно объектив из-за убогой прошивки самой "тушки"- фотоаппарата! Ремонт по инету прочитал ОТ 4000 рублей, что составляет 50% его стоимости! И это из-за грубейшей ошибки разработчиков!!!! И ЭТО НА НОВЫЙ ГОД!!!!! Моему возмущению нет предела!!!
  • Pros: Серьёзный аппарат с закосом под "профи".Съёмный объектив и планы по замене на более дорогой "блинчик" объектива. Хорошее качество при хорошем освещении. Размерность кадра 16:9 позволяет смотреть фото на экране ТВ без обрезов..
  • Cons: Шумы, чем меньше света, тем больше шумов. Не удобное управление. Хорошие снимки получалось делать в режиме широкого объектива или "рыбий глаз". НО САМОЕ ГЛАВНОЕ: СЛОМАЛСЯ РОВНО ЧЕРЕЗ ГОД!!!! При очень аккуратном обращении!!!! Теперь беда- В режиме съёмки экран черный, ощущение, что не открывается шторка, съёмка не возможна, а расстояние до объекта замеряет правильно, информацию на табло выдаётся.

Finger weg

gdhardi, Amazon
18 May 2013
  • Summary: Finger weg davon ! ! ! Habe zweimal eine gekauft, nur verwackelte Bilder, selbst bei hellem Tageslicht. Bildstabilisator so gut wie nicht vorhanden und nutzlos. Menü so klein und futzelig, das man immer eine Brille benötigt.
