    I have the pen-f, my second MFT camera after the EM-5 mk1.
    The EM-5 didn't really have any of the current features offered in the newer
    oly. cameras. Since getting the pen_f I have been messing around with the
    front dial a bit and have got it covered relatively easy.

    However the manual goes into no details about how to use the other
    features etc.
    Anyone know of any sites with guides that go into a little detail about using these features?
    live composite, live composite with flash settings, how to set focus in the dark (fireworks day)
    I have used this but fudged my way through it. with not bad results.
    HDR, when to use 3,5 or 7 frames + difference in exp. steps. What situations should use what?
    Hi resolution mode?
    Focus stacking. tried it but was a complete failure.

    I know trail and error is probably a good place to start. But we don't have a of fireworks here
    and I don't want to fluff it up.

    Any links would be cool, or even someone with the knowledge a small guide would be great
    for all who upgrade but don't know how.
    Why doesn`t Olympus have this sort of stuff on their site?

    Maybe this will help: Learn Center | Olympus.

    They seem to have some tutorials and videos on most of the Olympus' camera features.

    Thanks for that.

    Almost every time I go to Olympus I usually get redirected to Oly. japan. I must have got the
    shits and given up and missed it. But that link stays in English, cool. I spend tomorrow going over it.
