    I need some help with this one DOF Preview
    Sorry my brain just cannot figure this one out :dash2:

    The EM-10 has a DOF preview feature
    So how does it work and what camera settings / assign button set up
    will get this feature on my EM-10 ?

    I am really missing something here
    Thanks for any help

    It stops the lens down so you can see what the actual depth of field is while looking through the EVF or the LCD. Go into the 'gears' menu, button function and select the button you want to use as your DOF Preview button. Hit OK and you're ready to go. Since I don't shoot video, I use the orange movie button for DOF Preview.
    As long as you hold the button down, the camera stops the lens down to the selected aperture. Let go and it's wide open again.
