I just got a new to me E-M1. I can’t figure something out with it. On my E-M10, when I use Live Composite, the screen is bright and doesn’t show the actual exposure.

On the E-M1, when I got to Bulb, Live Time or Live Composite, the screen goes very dark.

I’ve tried changing the live boost setting, but it doesn’t seem to change anything.

Any ideas on what I’m doing wrong or what setting I need to change?

Thanks!!

Heya... On the original E-M1, there's an option called BULB/TIME MONITOR. It's under Menu > Gears > Gear-E, and it allows you to set the brightness of the monitor specifically for BULB and TIME exposures.

It's set lower than normal because it expects you to be working in the dark, and lowers the monitor brightness to try and minimize your night-blindness in the dark.
