Yes, at the moment using 3 of 4 on my new-ish E-M1. They are a bit awkward to access, and I haven't been able to reconcile myself to committing a dial position like "Auto" (which I do however never use) to a MySet.

1/ If I say "snapshot" photography, then it's not a bad set of settings to get any photo:

  • ISO Auto (max 3,200);
  • I-Enhance;
  • center-focus;
  • smart-exposure;
  • highest-quality JPEG;
  • red-eye flash but flash usually not attached/raised;
  • low-speed continuous (so it will keep focussing which apparently it does not on high-speed);
  • IS Auto;
  • Face-Eye Recognition;
  • anti-shock on "0" (to avoid the dreaded shutter-shock).

2/ For "Art", often using a tripod:

  • ISO 200;
  • no colour enhancement;
  • JPEG+RAW (latter rarely actually that helpful in my photography);
  • no flash;
  • single-exposure;
  • IS off;
  • Face Recog off;
  • other settings similar to #1.

3/ For "Serious Art":

  • same as number two but timer-delay on 2 sec and anti-shock on 2 sec.
