Set-up tips for EM-1??
7 months ago

Do apologize if this has already been dealt with, but the sort of "crib-sheets" that Wrotniak and others provided for setting up the E3/5 would be greatly appreciated. Was having particular problems figuring out some of the multiple control-modes of this complex little beasts when I was at the the top of Mauna Kea two weeks ago, shooting images of the sunset and of the big observatories opening and starting to operate.

The EM-1 seemed to work just fine with the FT FE and 7-14 as well as its own lenses, but I could not, for example, get it shooting video (of the domes-opening event) even in video mode. Later found ou that the 1-2 switch seems to be the culprit,

(Of course I probably was not working "just fine" at the 60% Oxygen levels, 15C below zero temperatures and 20-20 mph winds of that nearly 14.000 feet mountaintop.)

Any tips, especially on video and that problematic switch - which Wrotniak apparently loathes - would be greatly appreciated.

(And a happy holiday and great new year to all!)
