Live view on E-510 & BLM1 drain
A first I blamed the 3rd party BLM1's that I have accumulated over the years. I thought they'd come to the end of their lives and were no longer charging fully. But after a bit of tinkering, I discovered that it was the Live-view mode on my E510 which, when engaged, gave the low battery signal almost straight away - and within a few seconds, shut the camera down. But when I inserted the same battery into my E500 or C-8080 - its still showed green - and continued working as normal.
I never use the live view mode - so perhaps that's why its taken me so long to discover this phenomenon. Does it to all the batteries. And only when the livew-view is turned on. I take it the camera has developed a fault.
Anyone else have a similar experience ?
