HLD-6 Not Working Correctly
Sep 14, 2012

I rented a HLD-6 to use during star trail photography this weekend (new moon!). I found the build quality to be stellar, however I don't think its working right. All the buttons and dials seem to work ok, but I can't get it to power my camera. I made sure that I had a fresh Olympus BLN-1 in both the camera and grip but when I have the camera set to draw from the grip battery first it wont turn on at all. When I have it set to draw on the body batter first it will turn on, but then when I go to switch power sources the camera flicks off for a few seconds and then comes back on with the setting switched back to draw from the body battery. Does anyone have any experience with this issue? I plan on contacting the rental company (lensrentals) in the morning. I haven't updated the firmware on my OMD, but I don't think that's the issue. Any suggestions would be welcome!
