On the E-M5 I have it set to +1 Exposure Comp and stay with that down to ISO 800, with shutter speed based on subject (between 1/10 and 1/100) and f/stop based on subject.

On my e-m5, I usually set the aperture (according to the DOF that I want) and let the camera decide the rest. If I overexpose, I never know what the camera will do: boost ISO or higher exposure time (at the risk of a blurred image).

If I understand correctly, in order to ETTR, I have to set the max ISO at a lower point (from its present value, 6400, to 800 for example) and set a +1 Exposure correction. Is that right?
