Art Filters...how do you..

if you have used say Grainy film, how do you then set the camera to another filter - say sepia without rotating the dial away from ART and then back again?

Re: Art Filters...how do you..

It's also worth knowing (if I remember correctly and the E-M5 is like the E-P3) that when accessing art filters by the mode dial you are restricted to programed exposure, but if you access the filters in the menus you can use them with any exposure mode (although I'm not sure about manual). I can't check this as I no longer have my E-P3.

Yes, you can do manual as well if you set it in the menu.

Good tip, John - I didn't know that myself.

Re: Art Filters...how do you..

Don't forget that Art Filters are also selectable from the list of Picture Modes in the Super Control Panel (in PASM modes) & "To enable the Super Control Panel, you need to go to the '[Camera] Control Settings' option in Custom Menu, section D" & the other adjustments are also available (except contrast, sharpness, RGB adj., & gradation).

See these photos of it.

Re: Art Filters...how do you..

Also, in the EM-5 you can bracket art filters too, so you can choose which filters and non-filter shots you would like and take them all with just one shutter press.

I've also found that some settings carry over from the previous mode, but can't be changed when the dial is set to art. For example, in Nice I was using square frame for some shots, but if I wanted to use this format in art I had to go into A mode first and then select it. Having read some comments in this thread I'll see if I can access it through the SCP, but I think I tried that and it was 'greyed out'.
