    I want to turn off auto review on my gx1, but it will not let me choose the off setting and only the 3 and 5 seconds are highlighted. Can some one please let me know how to shut it off.:confused:

    Thanks,
    Kelly

    That is the menu I'm in, but won't let me choose anything other than the 3 and 5 second options.

    See page 70 of the advanced manual. When Auto Registration in Face Recognition is set to On, only 3 sec and 5 sec are available choices for Auto Review.

    A number of these settings are dependent on other options. In looking at my GX1, I can see the auto review setting is disabled if using burst M or bracketing mode for example.

    I can't figure out what combination would disable the 1s review though. What shooting mode are you in? Shooting JPG or RAW? What LCD settings are you using?

    Yep, found that out the hard way, and found the answer in the manual, when I got my GX1 last summer. It's an odd programming choice - probably an oversight. :rolleyes:
