Useful old feature, brought back

I had it on my 1999(?) E-100rs... then it skipped a number of generations before coming back. Inclusion of video on the E-5 was key, as there would have otherwise been no need for a built-in microphone.

I use it when I'm taking quick notes for a story I'm working on, such as hiking trails, when it's quicker than using a note pad.

For those not near their manuals: you take a shot and go to shot review. When viewing the photo, press the "okay" button and a screen comes up. Choose the microphone tool and make your recording. Press "okay" to stop recording. You can also re-record or erase the sound.

I'm a Mac user and I also find that iPhoto (2011 version) does not play the sound. The regular Apple viewer does, though.
