  • Use frame rate L (6fps) and never H (11fps). The concept of C-AF does not fit to frame rate H at all (where only the first shot has AF and AE lock) .

Why do you say so? Logic suggests that with H frame rate you would get more frames to choose from compared to H, all within the same focus and exposure settings. That independently if H or L works better for the particular application, that's another story.

Page 55 of the E-M1 manual, "Sequential H: Photographs are taken at about 10 frames per second (fps) while the shutter button is pressed all the way down. Focus, exposure, and white balance are fixed at the values for the fi rst shot in each series"
