E-M5: Base plate wobble on even surfaces
Oct 18, 2012

When I just posted this as a reply in another thread (where it was a bit off-topic) I thought to better create a new thread out of it.

Does anyone else experience that the base plate (feet) of their E-M5 are slightly warped or something, which results in wobble when the camera is standing on an even surface and you push on it?

With a lens attached it wobbles more when pushed at the back (lens pulls it forward), with a light lens/none it wobbles at the front when the shutter button is pressed. But a video tell more than a thousand words.

The swooshing sound you hear in the X10 video is from IBIS resonating with the stone windows surface. It's louder on more resonating wooden surfaces. I was quite surprised that you can hear the AF action at the beginning, too.
