Many rules lead to few entries.

On User Guide: Getting the most out of the Olympus E-M5 article (262 comments in total)

Richard,

Many thanks for a truly excellent guide. One question: how does one access the four "My Modes" ?

On the E-5 this is a simple matter of holding down the Mode button (on the camera's top plate to the left of the pentaprism) and turning the main dial which results in each of the four My Modes being displayed (both in the viewfinder and the Super Control Panel) along with P, A, S, M and B.

This permits very rapid change of shooting Modes each with numerous pre-selected options, for instance: from My Mode 1 aperture priority with IBIS at 1, single auto focus, Noise filter at off and ISO at 100 to My Mode 2 aperture priority with S-AF, NF at low and ISO at 800 or to My Mode 3 shutter priority with continuous auto focus, ISO at 1600 and IBIS off, and so forth

Does the EM-5 have an equally quick means to do the same? In the absence of a Mode button, can this be done only by designating either the left or down arrows for drive mode?

In reply to:

Pepino: I just read this over on BioFos. How do you actually get this?

OLYMPUS FREE GRIP OFFER WITH PRE-ORDERS OF OM-D
In a nod to the 40th anniversary of the original OM, Olympus are offering customers who pre-order the chance to claim the ingenious two part grip and battery pack free! Talk to your local Olympus Pen Elite Centre, Warehouse Express, Amazon, Dixons Black Stores and selected Jessops. Pre-order the camera and Olympus will ship the grip to you on delivery of the camera.

http://www.biofos.com/mft/omd_ann.html

This offer appears to be limited to buyers in the UK. In Japan, Oly is offering to buyers who commit before the release date of April 17 either a free MMF-3 adapter or a SanDisk UHS-1 SD card.

Olympus, make that MMF-3 deal available in North America too, please!

Richard,

The specs in the dpr preview show the E-M5 as having time lapse photography capability. Is that correct? Can it function in intervalometer mode? And if so, does it have provision for an AC adapter?

Great photo of K-36 number 480 pounding up the grade. All that is missing is the stack music. Makes me want to get back to Durango soon.
