    Hi MFT forum.

    Just bought an E-PM1, and while it's on its way to me I've been trawling through the forum finding what kinds of accesories and tricks I can have to accompany its tiny little body.

    Here's what I have so far:

    GRIP

    With such a small frame, many E-PM1 users are buying addons for their camera to give their hands that extra purchase on its metal surface.

    SCREEN PROTECTION

    Since the PEN Mini has no touchscreen, there's no worries about smudgey fingerprints, but you can still save your screen from scratches and possibly reduce glare.

    • acmaxx 3.0" - screen only (ebay)
    • vikuiti armr200 - full back cover (amazon uk)

    SETUP

    Probably the most common complaint levelled at the PEN Mini is the complexity of the menu and speedy navigation of same. Several seasoned Olympus users explain how they get their best out of the E-PM1!

    I have read that I should adjust sharpness to -1 but I cannot find anywhere in the menus to do this. Where is this located?
    Thanks

    You have sharpness in SCP. Don't know where exactly it is in "regular" menu...

    Forgot to thank you for this before...


    BTW does anyone have the aki asahi kit on a brown E-PM1? I am not sure if any of the colors will look good on mine.

    hey ReallyBad, (this is my first post btw), I'm curious as well. I have a brown E-PM1 too, kaza-deluxe.com has some interesting colors but i'm not sure if it's worth the small investment...

    You can set that in SCP but only sharpness & contrast.

    Menu > Set Up > Picture mode.

    Now you can adjust sharpness, contrast, saturation and graduation for most of the shooting modes.
