Re: E1 Settings

Oh another one that's in the back of my mind is set shading compensation to off.If I remember correctly it slows the camera down a lot.

IIRC, as you press the WB button and rotate the dial a little picture does appear (next to the number) on the rear LCD. Let me know if I'm wrong!

I'm sure I found a recommended settings guide on the 'net when I set mine up but I can't locate it now! Thought it was biofos or wrotniak but nothing springs up on Google.

How's the SHLD-2 grip? I thought about getting one, but, unlike the E-620, the E-1 sits so nicely in my hand I'm not sure it would add to the experience?
Does it do anything for AF with my MkI 14-54 lens?
I ask as I've found one boxed with battery and charger going cheap.

Re: E1 Settings

Well I`m hoping with the grip and the perfect 70-300 I got from you that I`ll get some great shots from my Son`s golf comp later this month.

Re: E1 Settings

I hope you don't mind me reviving this thread, it sort of went off at a tangent.

Any there other "standard setting" anyone would care to offer?
Also Pete, now you have more time with the E1 have the settings you offered changed?

I have used the E-1 almost exclusively since I got it. I'm still using Aperture priority, centre weighting, front wheel for exposure compensation. perfect ergonomics for me. I do use ISO 200/400/800 more now, and the results are still fine. Maybe we should all lighten up a bit about noise. There was plenty of grain in the film days.

I have been caught out by the instant WB button. its easy to push it by accident, then get lost as to why the camera seems to have crashed. (It is waiting for a response to the menu on the rear screen...)

Otherwise, it is an excellent thing
