Record instant review
If enabled the E-1 will provide an instant review of the image taken immediately after shutter release. There appear to be two major omissions during instant review. Firstly there is no option to enable histogram or indicated overexposure, secondly there is no way to cancel the image before it is written. These (in my opinion) are serious omissions from a digital SLR aimed at professional use.
When changing certain settings via external buttons the LCD monitor displays the current setting and any additional information.
