    E-PL1 owners can you please let me know how can I enable the light box playback in the menus, because mine is grayed out. Thanks in advance.

    HI Brian thanks for your quick reply, the "Light Box" menus is greyed out, I can't enable it, here is I copied it from DC Resource website:
    Info setting

    * Playback setting
    o Image only (on/off)
    o Overall (on/off)
    o Histogram (on/off)
    o Highlight & shadow (on/off)
    o Lightbox (on/off)

    Oh yes, I see what you mean... light box view is described on page 61 of the E-PL1 manual, but it doesn't look like it's currently available.

    Looks like an item for a future firmware fix.

    Cheers

    Thanks for check it out for me Brian, I thought mine has a problems, also 1 guy from dpreview said that his camera has a feature that ask if we want to update the firmware or not, but I can't find on mine too. You posted a very sharp photos Brian with the PL 14-150, what an expensive lens.

    Hi, I've worked it out... first of all you need to select :

    Cog Menu D->(play) CLOSE UP MODE->mode 2

    and then LIGHT BOX menu option will be available, set :

    Cog menu D->Fn/INFO SETTING->Play INFO->LIGHT BOX->ON

    A bit convoluted! but we got there in the end :smile:

    Cheers

    Actually this solves another problem too.
    The procedure described on p. 60 for close-up playback doesn't work unless mode2 is enabled. I was desperately looking for a way to compare two images zoomed in. The modes are described on p. 74. Although ... described is the wrong word here. :mad: I would dearly love to stuff this so called manual down various people's throats at Olympus.
