Hi there

I'm considering upgrading from the E-M10 II to the IV, and I had a couple of questions:
  • Can the function of the front/rear dials be changed? It says in the manual it can, but it doesn't say what options there are. So for example in aperture priority mode, I can have the front dial set for aperture and the rear for exp comp (which is the reverse of the default) ?
  • Can focus peaking be activated by a single button press? On my Mk II it can but it seems the IV has limited customisation of buttons. Can it be activated from the SCP?
  • Can AE bracketing be activated by a single button press or via SCP?
  • It looks like WiFi/Bluetooth can be turned on/off (via touch) from the SCP?
I know the IV functions more like a III as far as the interface and buttons are concerned, and the III was a more 'simplified' version of the II in this regard.

Thanks

You could take a look at this YouTube video that addresses this question:

Just as an aside, I could not imagine that it doesn't allow you to swap the functions of the 2 wheels. That's kind of minimum, I think.

@nandystam to your questions:
- yes, you can swap the dials' functions as you have described.
- yes, you can assign one (of the three customizable buttons) button to "peaking". Can't see how this can be done via SCP really.
- AE bracketing is an option in AP (advanced photo) menu. You can choose between 3 or 5 frames but can't set any EV steps. Could not find this option from the SCP.
- there is no option for WiFi in the SCP

Thanks, this helps greatly with my decision making.
