E500 - Question about My Mode setup
Mar 7, 2006

I´ve had my E500 for some months now and am steadily working my way through all the menu options (besides taking pictures, that is). I am a little puzzled about the My Mode setting. I have studied the advanced manual, but don´t really understand the purpose of My Mode.

From the manual page 128: "You can register 2 different combinations of camera settings and temporarily call up one of the registered settings while taking pictures. The registered setting can be used while the button is being pressed".

What kind of camera settings are we talking about, here? Different A/S combinations? different WB. different ISO, different EV, different.... And what would be the advantage of doing so?

And how can this be handled physically? If I need to keep pressed the one-touch WB to temporarily call up the setting and need to press another button (AEL, for example) I need two right hand thumbs.

Hopefully, someone can explain the purpose of this My Mode setting.

Thanks in advance!
