    Just ordered an EP3 (currently have an EPL1) and I'm having a hard time finding threads full of tips, tricks and tutorials (or even a book for that matter) for this camera. Is it too similar to the EP2 to warrant this?

    Should I be looking for EP2 info to satisfy my hunger until the camera is delivered?

    If any one has some tips for me on the EP3, please feel free....

    Thanks!

    My personal fav's:

    -Take the default auto white balance down a notch from warm.
    -Silence the focus-lock beep sound in the super control menu.

    To make the LCD image look less vivid and closer to the actual image you're going to get, go to: menu / set up (little wrench) / LCD color temperature (3rd icon down) / then press INFO button to change from Vivid to Natural.

    use super control panel
    disable touch screen (so that the ep3 does not take pictures when you walk).

    shoot pictures everyday !

    enjoy

    I would like to second that notion. :)
    I am a m43 and E-P3 newbie to.

    Any good reads, on RAW development techniques, or good profiles for download maybe? :)
