Re: F3 and live view

I don't have an F3 on mine, just an F. Do you have the 3.1 firmware? You can get live view by pressing the button to the left of the viewfinder.

On my m10 mark 2, I do have an f3 but nothing happens when I press it. Thank you for replying. Perhaps I should have stated which model I have.

Re: F3 and live view

I suspect a bit of confusion as this is the E-M1 markii forum - perhaps a mod could move it for you?

I have the E-M10ii - there are 3 "Fn" buttons.
Fn1 on the right rear
Fn 2 right top by the shutter

Fn3 left top by the power switch.


I have mine set via the Super Control Panel to

Fn1 HDR,

Fn2 Peaking,

Fn3 BKT


I don't see a "Live View" option when scrolling through the options from the Super Control Panel - there is a "Live Guide" option which brings up the menu on the touchscreen for stuff for like changing colour saturation etc. something I've never used.


Brian, what are you hoping to do?

You've confused us all by posting it in the EM1ii section!
