Re: OMD settings: beginner
In reply to Atwater, May 28, 2013

thank you to all the contributors...no I will not sell my OMD and appreciate the links which have clarified my settings (would have been better on S-AF). Am delighted with many of the photos I have taken and they are so much better than the Canon S90 I used previously. I do have the kit zoom and have been happy with it though the recent experience was at a children's party, indoors with moving targets. The 45 lens was fast enough to use with no flash.

If I can quote from the article I was directed to

"One thing Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras are not, though, is intuitive out of the box. Combining feature rich with unintuitive can be a recipe for trouble, unfortunately, and the E-M5 suffers from this problem. Once the camera is set up properly it can be easy to use, but getting there is not easy. Olympi, and the E-M5 in particular, are obtuse."

I note the OMD setup guide from DPreview made similar comments. Perhaps I am looking for more trouble but what is the easiest way to set to take B and W (not the grainy scene option)
