How to hide focus box and battery status on E-M10 III?

Hi,

as the title already says, how can I hide the focus box and the battery status on the E-M10 III?

I see them on the hdmi out and I need a clean view there without any status displays and those 2 are the only ones which do I cannot easily hide.

Thanks for any advice.

I don't own an E-m10 mark III, but generally on Olympus cameras you press the info button to switch between the various screens. On page 23 of the fine manual the 4 screens listed are:

  • Basic information
  • Image only
  • Histogram display (custom1)
  • Level gauge display (custom2)

Typically there is an additional menu that allows you to configure which screens are displayed (pages 110, 116, 117).  In addition, you can typically customize what is displayed in each of the custom displays.

Perhaps on the E-m10 mark III the image only screen was not enabled, and pressing info did not have that screen.  In that case, you first need to enable the screen.

I just checked my E-M10 III and it works as Michael outlines above. One additional point. If you want the focus box to be hidden, switch to manual focus in the SCP, at least that worked for me.
