Re: My Sets

I nearly always shoot in A mode apart from when I use flash and then it's normally M.

On the E-M1 mk1 I have two mysets allocated to SCN and Art on the mode dial, one is for CAF and burst shooting and the other is for the x2 DTC which I use for macro a lot.

On the Mk2 I've changed slightly.
C1 has become my normal starting position ie A mode, back button focus, single shutter silent, ISO 200, centre point focus.
I can progress from this to whatever setting I need.
If the camera is turned off it will resume back at my starting point, so no more "oh bxxxxxks" I've left the camera in Iso 6400 when out shooting landscape.
If the camera goes to sleep it will remember the setting as they are.
I try to always leave the camera in C1.

C2 is CAF as on the Mk1

C3 is x2 DTC as on the Mk1.

If also find this much more of an advantage as it's only one or two clicks of the mode dial to change setting and not right round the other side and getting lost where I am.

I've only been using it like this for a couple of weeks and may change, but at the mo it seems to work well.

I hope this makes sense.
All the best
