Can you bring up the shutter speed/aperture sliding scale on the display in GH1 or GX7?

    I noticed that GF1 displays a nice shutter speed/aperture sliding scale when you change exposure in P/A/S/M. It's a nice way of showing how its automatic exposure works. Even in the M mode, it gives you an idea of what range of shutter speed and aperture will work, with different coloring of feasible ranges. (It is a good graphic illustration of how its program shift and exposure compensation algorithm works. It was very interesting playing around with it and seeing when it increases/decreases the shutter speed and/or aperture, and when it stops fiddling with the shutter speed/aperture and starts adjusting the ISO instead.)


    Is this feature unavailable in GH1? I can't seem to find something like that in the settings menu.
    How about GX7? Does it have this useful feature?

    My GF1 did not have this enabled by default. Maybe you need to set Custom Menu / Expo. Meter to ON on your cameras.

    GX7 does.
  4. The LX7 has it as well.

    Sliding scale is, I believe, a universal feature of current Panasonic M43 Cameras. I don't know about the GH1. GH3 definitely does, as does GH2, G5 and G6, in addition to the already cited GX7.
