Manual setting on E-M5

    Another of my many disappointments with the E-M5 is the absence of Auto ISO setting when in Manual mode. Quite often I need to set both shutter speed and aperture, especially when shooting wildlife, and then to rely on the Auto ISO to give the exposure variable. I can do this on my Canon 7D as well as setting full manual so why isn't this available on the E-M5. Not quite the "Most customizeable" digital camera most people claim, and it is now being relegated in my arsenal to a non-wildlife tool, such a shame!!

    You can do it, it's an option in a menu.

    I'm not sure about E-M5, but Pens, at least some of them, have an option somewhere in the menu that lets you "activate" Auto ISO for Manual mode (disabled by default). It's very likely that this option is also present on E-M5.

    The Auto ISO work on my OM-D when in Manual. At the very moment I've aimed the camera at the monitor and my settings are 1/60, f/9.5 ISO 400, now I'm aiming down at the keyboard annnnd I'm at 1/60, f/9.5 ISO 6400.
