    I'm looking to set up my EM5ii and want to find the best links for this.

    I found this The video is an intense list of tips. You will need to pause and play to get all the tips. It's not a video for entertainment.

    One valuable trick I discovered here. If you need to take a shot really quickly and the camera is off, switch it on with the shutter button pressed. It'll focus and take one shot before the camera has fully booted to all the icons being displayed. It only works if you are in PAS or M, and the shooting mode is on single shot though.

    Please post your EM5ii tips and links here.

    To get a raw file when using the special high resolution mode, you need to do these steps just one time.
    - Activate high res mode.
    - Set picture quality to include raw
    - Set high resolution mode off
    - Save settings in your standard Myset.
    Next time you activate High Res, a raw file will always be saved.

    Thanks for this thread Ian. What's the base Myset?

    Say, Myset 1, where you might store all your favourite, neutral, settings for everyday shooting. Sorry if I made it sound like a new feature. I edited it to read standard Myset above now.

    No worries. But regarding high res raw, once set in the menus, it stays on, so every time you choose high res via the shooting mode control (SCP or menu), it will always be raw. No need to save it to a myset? That's the impression I have gained since owning one.

    In the video he said you'd lose it. Maybe if you load another Myset perhaps.
