    So I just picked up a very gently used E-M10 II and I did a full reset on the menus and have been trying to read through the manual, but now I need the internet.

    Is there a good wiki or PDF that shows how the menus have changed since the firmware update? What came with the camera (and in the PDF) seem just slightly off in a lot of areas.

    Next, picture mode? I see settings for it - some of the modes/filters show up in SCN, some are in the art filters, but some I can't figure out. Especially like the vivid, monotone, enhance, custom, and I think a few others. The boxes are checked, and I've tried a few things but can't figure out how to access these color options. Any help would be fantastic.

    You can select the filters in any mode from the SCP (Super Control Panel) in the top right corner. Default one is "Neutral".

    Ah, I think I found the issue, I hadn't gotten into the menu to enable the SCP instead of the Live Guide. I'll check that when I get home! Thanks everyone!

    Welcome to the forum. Is this your first mu43 camera?

    The Olympus menu system is legendary for its obfuscation. The good part is they have been reasonably consistent over the years so you can get used to them.

    It was hard to comprehend how bad they really were until it was in my hand. But I don't plan on bouncing between camera systems so consistency is great!

    Enabling the SCP is crucial! Having to menu-dive for everything would make you crazy.

    I'd recommend getting a book about the camera. The manual isn't easy to read. I don't have an e-m10, so I can't recommend a book, but I'm sure you can get plenty of recommendations here.
