The Olympus E-M1 MkII Menu System Simplified

Looking through the forum threads it seems a number of members are struggling with the menus in the EM-1 Mark 2 version there is a good solution to this situation that might help. I can recommend an excellent book available from Amazon as a hard cover at £9.60 or Kindle version at £4.77 the book is by David Thorpe and is called "The Olympus E-M1 MkII Menu System Simplified"

The E-M1 MkII has a menu system comprising 25 screens of menu items most of which have sub menus of their own. Itís no surprise therefore that even experienced users can find themselves scratching their heads as they wade through the hundreds of choices to be made. This book goes through every menu choice in everyday language and explains what it does and why you might want to do it . It may not inspire you in a literary sense but with its help you will find an E-M1 MkII tailored to you needs inspiring to use.

I hope you find this helpful in the pursuit to greet and master the menu system of this fantastic camera.

As a new user of the camera (one month) and a new convert to Olympus from Pentax, this will be invaluable. Many thanks.
