    Greetings all!

    I bought an OMD here about two weeks ago and just received my lens I'm VERY new to the system.

    I wanted to try out the tilt screen, but when I tilt it out, there is nothing displayed. I can see the 'supermenu', but I cannot see the scene I am trying to photograph.

    I'm sure its a setting, but I couldnt seem to find anything through the menu.

    Also, isnt there a way to just touch the screen and take the photo when its tilted out? I cannot even see the scene.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    There is a small button on the side of the evf (electronic viewfinder) push that and it will change modes. Once the mode changes you can touch the screen to take a shot.

    Peace and enjoy your new toy!

    canerino, somewhere here there are a couple of threads with a lot of information, or links to information, about setting up your OM-D, with an eye to the new users. Search them out and go through them with camera in hand.

    It's easier if you read the manual!
