    Static? Possibly a stupid suggestion...

      We need to see the images. Simple as that. Can an experienced member offer an email address so they can post up the images or just check it out and report back. I'm finding all the negative E-M1 talk a bit ott as mine seems to be ok*touches wood -- again*. We need to rule out user error first and foremost.

Could be a stupid explanation I know but its worth thinking about.
        Wow, unintended BIF shots!

        Although I have not had the pleasure of full lockups I have experienced erratic and unpredictable behaviour, but I'm not ruling out operator error!

          I'm inclined to reserve judgement here as I'm lucky enough not to have seen any issues so far. Carlos can you please post some images so that we can all see what you are experiencing and be of some real help. Just upload the images to the gallery and then copy and paste the address into a post. This endless speculation is getting us nowhere.

            Finally found out how to get a photo on here. I THINK
            This is a 300% crop, and as i said there are about 40 of these dotted around the frame.
            These arn't distant birds, too uniform.

              Probably a stupid question but have you tried giving the sensor a good blow with a Rocket style Blower?

              I have seen something like this in the past with one of my canon bodies and it turned out to be pollen grains on the sensor. A good hard "Puff" cleared it completely

                It does look like temporary "dead pixels" or some other pixel issue as you say they are square dots and too uniform....

                I really hope it was/is a one off and that you don't have it long term.

                    Odd. Wont they be small clusters of pixels.

                        Hi all,
                        Had a look at sensor with a 12x loupe, and is clean.
                        Cant get it to repeat.

                          Todate (owned mine since 27 Sept) I have not exprienced this & have taken quite a few images of motorbikes & cars on track. Took 500 images this weekend.

                            That's good to hear.... Hope the issues are limited to unfortunate few....

                              A picture paints a thousand words.

                              I agree not distance birds but I would suggest something that crept in during a lens change? I do not know the differenct between dust on the lens and that on the sensor. I am assumimg it was on the sensor, because it is not there now and proof that the Oly lens clearing system works
