Settings advice please

Hi Everyone
I have just purchased a em1 mk 2 for my upcoming trip to Canada / USA.
I will be using 7-14 f4 / 12-40 and 50-200 on the em1 mk 2.
Landscape for most shots with hopefully some bear shots.
If there is any settings that would give me a better chance of success using these lenses I would appreciate the input
Thanks in advance
John

I suggest you start by consulting the oracle first. Link below

Re: Settings advice please

This site http://www.ayton.id.au/wiki/doku.php...lympusomdem1ii has a useful wiki for the E-M1 MkII. I can also recommend this ebook https://gumroad.com/l/E-M1-II for giving a very guide explanation of choosing the best options in the menu system to suit your needs, and of using the camera's many features.

I haven't tried it yet with my new MkII, but I should think the ProCapture mode would be great for bear photos!
