Re: Portraits and focus on the EM1

Hi Sisi, it's easy - you need to set the "Live view boost" option. It's under Menu - Cogs D, Disp/sound symbol/PC, page 92 in the manual. What you are seeing without it is how it would look if you shot at 1/125 f/8 without flash, which will be pretty dark. If you use the boost option it will brighten it up for you - downside is that you can't see the effect of things like exposure compensation.

Ciao ... John
