    Just tried Live Composite mode on 4th of July fireworks, and was really happy with how well it worked. I played around with different settings, and settled on ISO 200, 1/2 second shutter speed, and stopped my aperture down a bit. I was really impressed with how the lamp post in my view was not overexposed. P7040884. P7040892. P7040895. P7040906.

    Nice work! I just got an EM1, looking forward to getting an opportunity to use the live composite mode.

    Here's probably the best one that I took. Taken in Irvine, CA in the back bay. Had quite a few pics ruined by the smoke but it is nearly impossible to get a good spot upwind.

    Skipped the fireworks show and just had the kids play with some contraband fireworks. :p :DThey all survived with their fingers intact! ;)

    Shot with the E-M10, 20mm II and all using Live Composite:
