Re: Updating/adding to custom function

You asked the same thing in mu43 as well and got the same reply.
Better to try one forum at a time, I almost wrote my reply twice.

Re: Updating/adding to custom function

Not quite right as that won't let you assign the mode and the shutter speed/aperture.

Do the following to edit the C3 settings.
1. Set mode dial to P A S or M depending on which mode you want C3...

Re: C-AF preferring the background

I would suggest you stick with S-AF until you have upgraded to 3.1
3.1 is a huge improvement for C-AF.
Can't you borrow a PC for 10 minutes?

Re: C-AF preferring the background

Before you try anything else, follow these three steps.

1. Make sure you are using firmware 3.1. This is most important in your case.
2. Try single focus point.
3. Use C-AF not +TR.

Re: Rubber grip falling off!

I'm wondering why you didn't get it repaired directly with Olympus. The camera shop may have forgotten about it and it was still there!

Re: HELP: Pro Cap

Yes, with C-AF Sensitivity set to +2 the C-AF responds much more quickly.
Default setting of zero: delay before adjusting focus is 170ms.
Setting of +2: no delay before adjusting focus.

Re: HELP: Pro Cap

Change from Small Cross to single standard size focus point. Cameras love to focus on walls.

Re: Another stupid question.

When doing tricky stuff only trust the histogram. Well worth displaying that in the viewfinder.

Re: (Marginal) over/under exposure display

No, it is a much more exciting option. Try it using the instructions given.

Re: Extended Warranties

But they did learn. Since then both the Pen-F and the E-M1 II have proved extremely reliable. No dial problems, no strap lug problems, no power switch problems.

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

You say the camera shops in the UK can't by law sell used cameras?
What a strange idea. There is a camera shop near me with shelves of used cameras, and some in the window.
Some don't choose to...

Re: Extended Warranties

I never buy them. If they sell it for 100 then the chances are they have to pay out much less than 50 per warranty.
Also, this is a very well made and reliable camera.

Re: Another stupid question.

It is sensible. It reckons that even if you want to underexpose so much, it should still show (just) what you are looking at. Otherwise there is no point in looking at the viewfinder.

What you...

Re: Daft question

Are you sure you have a mirror?

You are referring to anti-shock mode, with the diamond. Your advice is good.

Re: Another stupid question.

If you set exposure compensation to underexpose, the EVF will get dark. Try it. Isn't that what you really want? This is the default.

You have set it to boost in M mode, which is sensible, but...

Re: Focus point indication during playback

I'm surprised you would use -2. This setting means that when the distance changes, it takes just over a second before the camera changes focus.

The advantage of -2 is that the subject can go...

Re: F1 as AF Home not working after upgrade to 3

You have to set the F1 button to Home, as you have done.

But you also need to tell it where and what Home is:
Cog menu, A2, Set Home.

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

Yes, that works well.
I see that doing that also changes the focus areas after you turn the dial back to A for example. You would think that there would be a separate setting for video which would...

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

I think you are right, Cross (5), 3x3 and 5x5 don't exist.
Are you simply selecting the mode then pressing the red button?

Re: So, is the AF better with firmware 3?

I have realised I'm not completely sure how the AF target settings work with video, as there is nothing in the menu other than a choice of C-AF and S-AF. Does it simply use whatever the focus points...
