S-AF to C-AF quick change

Folks,

Need your expert guidance - I want to be able to flick between SAF and CAF at the flick of a switch or press of a button.

Is this possible ?

I have an EM1 mk1 and currently have SAF in shutter and CAF onback button

I was thinking the position lever would be good but I'm not sure how or if that's possible

Any guidance would be fabulous

Cheers for any info

Rob

Menu B, set lever to Mode 5 and it will switch between 2 AF states. Page 105 of the manual.

Re: S-AF to C-AF quick change

Another way to do it is to set C-AF and back button focussing...

Pressing the button means you're C-AFing, releasing the button once its focussed makes it S-AF...

Simples - and it works really well.
