EVF when screen flipped out.

One thing I've always found a touch annoying is that I can't use the EVF when the screen is flipped out on the EM1-II, however when I was with Mike Inkley the other week he told me that he can with his and there must be a setting somewhere. Unfortunately we didn't have time to look at the time and I've not been able to figure it out since.

So is Mike correct, and if so what setting do I need to change?

Re: EVF when screen flipped out.

I've been trying to achive this myself and don't think it's supported. Looking at menu I the only choice I can see is the "EVF Auto Switch", which I have to On, and still the camera will not switch automatically when display is flipped out.

That's all I've found too. Maybe he was getting confused with the EM1x?

Re: EVF when screen flipped out.

Just checked, EM1X does do it, the EM1 ii and Pen F do not.
