The primary remedy is to avoid certain shutter speeds. A secondary remedy, available on Oly bodies, is to use the anti-shock setting to introduce a delay between two phases of shutter action: shutter closing prior to exposure and shutter opening for exposure (then closing again for readout, then opening again to continue live view).

I use an Oly Pen (E-PL2, recently purchased) do you know if the feature you mention is available on that camera? and if so, how to access it?


AFAIK yes. Check the exp/ISO section of the custom menu.

You turn the feature on and set the amount of delay via that menu. Once you have done that, you will get a set of new drive modes to choose from in the SCP (if the E-PL2 works roughly as the E-M5). For example, you will now be able to switch between single frame with anti-shock and single-frame without anti-shock via the SCP.
