    I can't seem to dial in a higher ISO than 1600 when in manual/live time... is that the limit or am I missing something? thanks!

    That's right for Live Composite, but not for full manual / bulb mode.

    hmmm - I still can't get more than 1600 ISO in either live time or live bulb. (This is EM-5, so no live composite).

    Is Live Time not similar to Live Composite?

    Yes it is similar.......but I must have something not set properly elsewhere because 1600 is my max in either of the manual modes. Guess I need to study my manual more. I'm not seeing it..

    Oh thanks! So 1600 is the limit in this mode then.
    Appreciate your time to find the info!

    I believe there will be another bulb mode that is independent of this, fwiw.

    Normal bulb mode doesn't have ISO 1600 limit, only Live Time and Live Bulb
