    Cool E-500 "Battery Empty" problem

    Hey there,

    Hope that someone can help me out with my problem.

    The problem is this, after charging my Li-ion Battery for about 6 hours, i only manage to get only around 30 mins of photoshooting time.

    I whether is this either the battery problem or is it my DSLR??

    If its my DSLR problem, where can i go to service it?

    Thanks and hope someone can help me out

    PEACE!!

    Locate the brand of your camera .. take Google, key in "[brand] Singapore service center" - read, take the phone and give them a ring, walk in and hand over your camera and battery. No big thing, right?

    I assume E500 refers to Oly E500?

    Are you shooting in live view?

    Yeah I tried that but what I need to know is that is it possible to fix it at any of the local camera shops?

    Dude. E-500 launched in 2005. No such thing as live view in DSLR back then.

    TS, most probably your battery is dying. Batteries have life span one, and seeing how this camera was launched 5 years ago, I think the battery is dying. Go buy another replacement battery.

    Some local camera shops could "fix" it by selling you a new 3rd party battery for the price of the original one - if you have no idea what's going on. Going to service center could verify whether it's only the battery. Not sure whether they also sell new batteries. Check the price guides of Olympus for recommended / reputable shops.
    Last but no least: there is an Olympus subforum here. Ask the guys for anything Oly specific.

    Actually is ask the four thirds sub forum since the E-500 falls under the four thirds standard, anyway, most probably is battery issue, can try loaning another batt, but best bring down to Olympus to check
