  • Do you find the OLED screen too colourful?

    I prefer to use my new E-P3 set to the natural colour setting, and was getting irritated about the over-vivid colours I was seeing on the rear screen.

    Then I discovered a thread in the DPReview Micro-FourThirds forum explaining how to cure it!

    By default the display is set to "vivid" mode. However, if you navigate to the Spanner (Wrench) icon in the menu, then select the brightness and saturation for the display option you will see the brightness and saturation control. Ignore that and look to the bottom left and you will see "vivid-info". Press the info button, then OK and it will switch to "natural-info", lo and behold you will now get your images played back in natural colour, pretty much wysiwyg.

    Problem solved! (It may be explained somewhere in the manual, but I hadn't noticed it there after reading it through several times...)

    That's a very useful tip.
    I've wondered why the E-M5 screen always seemed to be a bit OTT, nice to find there's another option.

    Regards.

      Thanks Chris, I haven't noticed a problem with my E-M5 but thought I'd check the setting anyway - it was already set to Natural.

        It's something I haven't noticed before, but is the same (as yours John). Isn't it nice we can learn something new every day.

        Thanks Chris for bringing this to our attention.

          Yes, when I checked my E-M5 after posting about the E-P3 I found that has a very similar setting (with only cosmetic differences). My E-M5 was set to natural rather than vivid, and probably came with that as the default setting as I've no recollection of changing it... Wonder how the other recent Pens are set up?
