assign M/F to record button on EM5 Mk1

Hi, I have re-assigned A/F to function button 2 and M/F to the record button on my EM5 Mk1. I have tried to do the same thing on my friend's camera, which is the same model but was purchased a good six months before I bought mine, and we cannot get the M/F to assign to the record button although the A/F to function 2 button is no problem. Could it be a firmware issue? Any help appreciated.
Dave

Re: assign M/F to record button on EM5 Mk1

Works OK on mine which is an early (pre-ordered) model.

Can you assign any other function to the REC button? If not the button may be faulty.

Regards.

Hi Peter, I'm not sure as I was telling my friend by phone how to do it but she said it would not work. I will be going round tomorrow so I will get back to you on it.
Thank you for the quick reply
Regards
Dave
