Camera Menus

The E-P1 has a revised version of the menu system seen in the most recent E-system DSLRs. The settings menu allows just about every aspect of the camera's behavior to be tweaked and fine-tuned to your tastes and then hidden if you don't find yourself regularly changing those settings. This is the least satisfying area of the E-P1; it's over-complex, inconsistent, occasionally illogical and it's way too easy to get lost.

Process the displayed image. Selecting a RAW image creates a JPEG using the current camera settings (White Balance, image size/quality etc.).
If the image is a JPEG, one of eight post-processing effects can be applied.

Image overlay allows multiple images to be combined. The images are selected then merged, with variable intensity.
