E-PL1: How the *&#@ do you get the *&#@ SD card out??
May 15, 2010

This is the absolute worst ergonomics I've ever experienced in a digital camera: With the battery door in the way, there just isn't anywhere near enough room to get your fingers onto the SD card, in order to pull it out and either replace it, or download images from it.

I swear, I have wound up using my fingernails to pry the dang thing out, and darn near EVERY SINGLE TIME, the card has gone flying into the air, and onto the floor. I really, really don't like to do that with my precious SD cards, know what I mean?

So, has anyone figured out some sort of a trick to get your fingers on that card? Must I attach a pair of tweezers to the dang camera so that I can reliably take the dang SD card out of the dang thing every dang time I try to dang dang dang dang dang.....

Gaaaaah!!

Anyway, if you have any advice, I'd sure like to hear it. I'm tired of flipping my cards onto the floor.

Thanks!
