Hi all,

When I take a long exposure picture, I still hear a fanning sound from my om-d, even when I turn off the ibis.
Is this normal?
Any reactions are appreciated.

Thanks!

Have you updated your firmware to the latest version?

Since the last update, if I want to hear the "fanning sound" I have to place my ear against the viewfinder, if not I don't even hear it in a normal environment.

Note that the OP is talking about long exposures. During exposure, you'd still hear the "fanning" sound no matter which firmware you are running. For short exposures, you obviously won't notice it but for longer ones you will.

Thanks for the info Anders,
Never noticed it before, so being the skeptic that I am, I tested it and of course you are right!
So I guess I'm to absorbed by the composition process when shooting long exposures or I'm going deaf!

Thanks again

-John
