EM-5 locking up. Is this due toe heat?
Jun 15, 2014

Hi. I'm curently in the Yucatan documenting archeological buildings and my EM-5 is having some problems. After taking few pictures the shutter locks up, the viewfinder (or LCD) goes black and I can't operate the camera. Turning off the camera for few minutes allows me to take few more photos before this happens again. The temperatures here are on the upper 90s and I am wondering if this behavior is due to heat. I have never had this situation happening before.

Any suggestions on how to fix this would be appreciated. I need to get this job done and this situation is kind of driving me crazy.
