I remember when i learned how to activate it on my e pl1.. What a difference!

So quickly, Isabel: can you tell us how to activate the SCP, in ten words or less? LOL!

I'll admit, it's a brutal thing to work through on your own. All Oly DSLRs from the E-330 on came with it already running. They're back on track with the E-M1, shipping it already activated.

I remember it was aggravating trying to figure out how to do it...couldn't find it in the manual, but I found this on Olympus' site:,+9130,+9191,+9131,+9132,+9133,+9134,+9135,+9136,+9137,+9138,+9139,+9140,+9141,+9142,+9143,+9144,+9145,+9146,+9147,+9148,+9149,+9150,+9151,+9152,+9153,+9154,+9155,+9156,+9157,+9158,+9160,+9161,+9162,+9163,+9164,+9165#3

Yikes! They certainly have a way of turning plain English into ancient Greek!

Guy is much more clear… though he takes 13 pictures and maybe 300 words. Following his examples, I was able to turn my SCP off and back on. And that's where it's staying!
