    Hi everyone,

    I recently just upgraded my EP-1 to the OM-D, everything is great so far except the screen. No matter what aspect ratio i choose to shoot, the live view gives me a black border of the cropped ratio. On the EP-1 no matter what you choose, you still get full screen. I checked the manual and tried looking online, any help guys? I would like to benefit from the whole screen.

    If you hold it up to a light source, you'll see that the actual lcd is much smaller than the glass screen.Are you confusing the two? If not, I'm not sure what it could be.

    The border is actually a darkish gray, not black...the rest of the black area is not the display but the display's frame you're seeing.
