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...

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.

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: 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: 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: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

Growltiger forgives you! I'm guessing that I was annoying and deserved it.

No connection with the musical, although I did see it in London when it came out.

The connection is with the origin of...

Install Olympus Workspace and use that. The update function is on a menu to make it easy.

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

Install the update. Then this is how it works.
You turn on that function by going to menu A1 and it is the second line down. Turn it on.
Then in S-AF you get S-AF+MF, and in C-AF you get C-AF+MF....

I have the new software installed. The EVF works perfectly with the screen flipped out. If you put your eye to it, the EVF works, when you remove your eye, the screen comes on.

Re: Noise issues

Go to Cog menu E1.

Set Noise Filter to Low. (I always use this setting.)

And most importantly set Noise Reduct. to Auto. (this is a feature to reduce noise with long exposures).

What did you...

Re: Memory Card OM-D E-M1 Mark II suggestions

To be sure buy from Amazon and not from Amazon Marketplace. That link is for a Marketplace seller, GE Trading. It needs to say "Sold and fulfilled by Amazon".

Re: Battery - charging error

No, the most likely thing is that the first battery finally decided to take a bit more charge and that pushed it up to full. You can relax now.

Re: New silver E-M1 Mark II camera

You get the standard raw, named .ORI and the hires raw, named .ORF, and the JPG. But you choose all this in the menu, after selecting hires mode. See the manual.

Re: Hi Res

You need to do a 100% crop. The difference should be easy to see.
Did you have the camera really stable - an ordinary tripod may not be good enough. Try resting it on a flat concrete slab.

Re: EM1 MKII Lock Up

You can buy a 2ml tube of Deoxit on eBay for 6. You only need a few drops each time so one of these will last for many years.

Re: E-M1.2 playback showing in EVF not on screen.....

You run the Olympus Updater. You need the latest version of it (v2.1).

It lets you make backups and restore them. You can use it to copy settings from one camera to another as well.

Re: Advanced Manual?

Yes, you can do it, that is one of the reasons for it. For example suppose you lose your camera and get a new one. You can get it fully configured in a few minutes.
