Locked Out Frequently
3 months ago

This poor camera cannot be used for "street photography" unless you want to wait for it to boot up from 'off"; wearing it on a strap with it turned om inevitably jostles the joypad and rotates the dial to a menu position which makes the camera unusable in some way.  Once, it turned on the 12-sec delay; another time, the camera locked up completely and would not take a picture until turned off and on again, at which time the menus were all messed up and needed to be reset. Other times, the ISO was set to max,  shutter-priority selected with a time of 30-seconds, etc.

Instead of training myself to turn it off after each use when walking around and missing good shots that way, I bought an E-PM2.  So far, so good.
