Re: 15 frame sequence E-M1 BIF after firmware update

Just looked and I have it set to capture time. Perhaps 15 frames a second is too much for Lightroom to cope with.

If it was in the order of file name, then the first numbers after P or _ is date followed by the number sequence. That,s how I have mine ordered anyhow.

Re: 15 frame sequence E-M1 BIF after firmware update

I have just noted that on page 7 of Darell Young's book, Mastering the Olympus OM-D E-M1 on his note about firmware updates 2.0 and 3.0, he states the following regarding V3.0:

Sequential L setting changes from 6.5 to 9FPS with C-AF
Sequential H setting is now 10FPS but with no C-AF but uses S-AF

Can anyone else confirm this please?

Re: 15 frame sequence E-M1 BIF after firmware update

think that should be

Sequential H setting changes from 6.5 to 9FPS with C-AF
Sequential H setting is now 10FPS but with no C-AF but uses S-AF

Sequential Hi using C-AF is now up to 9 fps but using S-AF (on the first frame) is up to 10 fps. Sequential Lo is still up to 6.5 fps in S-AF & C-AF.

I understand that this has been confirmed as an error in the book.

Confusing for those who are relying on the accuracy of a book updated for V3.0 firmware however, the book appears to be accurate otherwise, so far.

Re: 15 frame sequence E-M1 BIF after firmware update

Thank you Graham.

This throws a lot more explanation into exactly what is going on using Sequental H, it must really be set with S-AF not C-AF, It also explains the focusing range and shape with the 37 focus points. A very useful document whether or not you have Darrell's book!

Re: 15 frame sequence E-M1 BIF after firmware update

I'm sorry but I am still confused:
When I set up my EM1 with a micro 4/3 lens to Seq H, 9fps and CAF I still see the 81 point grid when I press the 4 direction button to move the focus point. Is this right or am I doing something wrong?

Later edit:
Having played with it a bit more I realise I do see a guide line for a smaller area (shaped like a cross) when shooting. Does this mean it is working ok?

I think the update to the book is still a little vague, it states:

When shooting in C-AF mode, the camera uses 37 AF point, phase-detection autofocus (PDAF). Figure 1, image 1, shows the actual locations of the 37 AF target points. While you are actually firing the camera in Sequential H burst mode, you will see a faint focus area frame in the EVF or monitor, outlining the 37 AF point area (figure 1.0, image 2). In other words, the camera will autofocus using the outlined area seen in image 2, all the time you are holding down the shutter button and firing the burst of images. You may have to train yourself to look for the outline as the frames are flying into the camera.

However, I believe you will only see the 37 AF point focus area when using a 4/3 lens.

When using a micro 4/3 lens you will continue to see the 81 point focus grid.

I hope this helps.

Dave

I don't think this is necessarily the case.

Firmware 3.0 is designed to allow the use of sequential H with C-AF and improving focus when doing so however, sequential H and C-AF will only provide a maximum of 9 fps whilst sequential H with S-AF will all up to 10 fps.

The 37 focus points appear when using a 4/3 lens.

I think I understand this correctly however, I'm happy to be corrected if my understanding is wrong.

When using a micro 4/3 lens you should see the 81 point grid on the monitor and whichever focus point you have selected in the EVF.

If you're using a 4/3 lens you should see the monitor/EVF as detailed in figure 1 of the update PDF.

Re: 15 frame sequence E-M1 BIF after firmware update

Thanks Dave for your help - that makes sense now. As I have only had the EM1 for a week I was concerned it was not working correctly but now understand. The photo of 37 points did confuse me though!
Otherwise I am finding Darryl's book very helpful as long as I only do it in small chunks to avoid too much information in one go!
