    Hi.

    I have an E-M5 and when I make changes, like shutter or aperture, there's no changes in the exposure preview. Nothing in LV or EVF.

    Have I changed any setting that will affect this?

    I don't know what the settings are exactly, but if you aren't actually changing the exposure compensation the camera might be adjusting the values to normal so not an actual exposure change. Just a guess.

    Should be able to turn off live EV boost. Pretty sure that's the issue.

    Which mode are you in? Do you have AUTO ISO on?

    Hi.

    EF boost is off. I'm using M mode and Auto ISO. I think I thought it out, is it right that there will be no adjustment when the exposure is more than 3+ and less than 3-? If that's so, there is no problem.

    Try changing ISO to some value. If you have Auto ISO active in manual mode, I'm pretty sure the camera is adjusting exposure by changing ISO.

    I just tried on my E-PM2. I'm getting the exact behavior you're describing- I don't see the image change when exposure is more than 3+ or less than 3-.

    There will be no change when the exposure comp. is more than +3 or less than -3
