    is it possible to do auto continuous shooting (say 8 shots) in the epm1 , preferably with a start delay? if so, which settings should i change?

    I plan on upgrading sometime soon so I don't think I want to get an intervalometer since I believe that feature is built in to the mark 2 omds.
    Just wish I could do it on my epm 1 at the moment for some image stacking

    The following differs from ordinary burst mode in that you can define the time between shots.

    1) Go to your Custom E menu and program the last entry, which is Anti-Shock. For this purpose, you could select 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2 seconds.

    2) Using with the SCP or the camera 2 menu, put the EPM1 shutter into burst mode with anti-shock enabled. The icon is an "H" with a diamond in front.

    Now when you hold down the shutter button, the camera will wait for the programmed delay and fire continually using that delay for as long as you hold down the button. This can be used to do limited range time lapse photography by using a rubber band and a spacer to hold the shutter button, or a remote shutter control on all older PEN's except the EPL1. Of course, if you pay $10 for the remote shutter, a programmable remote is only $10 more.
