    I couldn't find any information on this in the manual. Is there a way to set different ISO limits for the different shooting modes?
    In A mode I can usual get by with 200-800 ISO setting, but switching to S mode I might want a higher ISO limit (1600 or 3200).

    Can this be done with the E-M10?

    Thank you very much for your answer.
    I was hoping for an easier way to do it.

    But I will read through it, and try to set it up.

    I think it's the only way to do it. The added benefit is that you can setup a completely customized "action mode" or "night mode" where every setting is saved and restored.

    Contradicting myself I found out it is not a very good idea to overwrite the standard modes because every time you mode the dial from A to S, for example, all the settings are reset to the saved ones (aperture, iso, metering mode, etc.) and this can often be annoying. Better assign the myset to the "extra" dial positions, as many do.
