    Hi, sorry if this has already been covered I did do a quick search and found nothing.

    I have an EM5 which I pretty much have set up for VF only, I also have an EPL5 and recently got a VF3 so set it up in a similar fashion to use VF only..

    I have found that on the EPL5 + VF3 I can have the SCP to appear in VF wheras on the EM5 I can only get it to appear on the LCD.. is this the only option for the SCP on the EM5 as I am quite enjoying having it in VF on the EPL5..

    Thanks

    The EM5 will show SCP in the VF, but there is some combo of options that prevents it from occurring, iirc it was some focus or tracking option for me. .

    Hi Thanks, sussed it, it was down to how I had set the LCD to be off so retraced my steps in the end all I had to do was hit 'info' button a couple of time and voila, now my LCD is off and SCP appears in VF if my eye is there or LCD(with no LV) if it isnt..

    happy days
