E-M1 - How do you use the Lever Modes?
5 months ago

As I'm learning my E-M1, I reach points where I don't quite understand why certain things are the way they are. And the Lever position is the most puzzling to me. How do you use the lever modes? And what do you change/control with the different modes (especially mode 5)?

It seems to me this lever can quickly confuse you by resetting certain buttons and dial functions. Since changing the mode changes the button/dial functions, don't you get easily confused while shooting? There must be a good reason for this, but I haven't figured it out. I would appreciate hearing how you use this control. and especially when.

Both the manual and David Busch's book tell you what functions you can change, but not why. It would help my learning experience if I understood better why and how you use this feature.
