    Am wondering how u set up the OMD to shoot with an art filter and a scene mode when they are both set on the top dial and must leave one to get to the other? For instance if I want a pin hole effect to a landscape scene.

    Thanks

    You can't do so directly. But here's what I suggest:

    Select the scene mode you want, then view the SCP Super Control Panel and write down the settings.
    Then select ART mode and view the SCP. Change any of the settings that might be different from the SCP settings you wrote down for the scene mode. (You might find that you have very few differences between the two different SCP settings.)
    You're now ready to shoot.

    Alternatively, shoot in your desired scene mode, and add your ART via post processing with your favorite software program.

    Hello.

    Set dial to "landscape" mode. In fact, any PASM will also do.

    Take a photo in "raw" mode.

    Set dial to "pin hole" mode.

    Play the "raw" photo just taken.

    Press "OK".

    Select "Raw Edit".

    Press "OK".

    Et voila!

    .... A landscape has been squeezed through a pinhole!

    .... .... And a new jpg is born!

    :smile:

    It also works for other "art effects".

    HTH
