    I'm struggling with my new EM1 ii. Things were looking good until I tried to set a 2 second time delay and anti-shock. When I try to set the 2 sec delay, it isn't in the selection. 12 sec is there but 2 isn't. I'm assuming that the anti-shock will be on as I have turned it on in the settings, but there is no indication as in the EM 1.

    I must be getting old, but it occurs to me that Olympus didn't spend a lot of time on simplification between Mk1 and 2.

    You have to choose which options you want to appear when you press the "HDR" button.
    Cog menu D1, fourth row.
    And you do need to add the anti-shock option.

    Perhaps you mean you don't understand?
    Press the Menu button.
    Scroll to picture of a cog.
    Go to the menu called D1 in the cog menu system.
    Go to fourth line in that D1 menu. Click OK.
    List of shutter options appears.
    Press OK next to each one you want to change, a tick means that option will appear when you press the AF button.
    Press Menu again to come out of that option.
    Now when you press the "HDR" button you can choose any of the options you had a tick against.
    Did that help?

    Thanks for reply, much appreciated. Got it now. Have to press button above the AF, one with HDR on it.

    Would you know anything abt a star mode. Posted a thread but no replies which seems rare in this forum.

    Cheers

    I edited my posts to say HDR button instead of AF button, thanks for pointing this out.

    I have not tried star photography (called astrophotography). You need to read pages 30 and 31 of the manual, where it explains about LIVE TIME and long exposures, also below that about LIVECOMP. Try out those modes at night.
    If you search the forum for things like "milky" (as in Milky Way galaxy) I expect you will find some posts.
    And there is a whole section on the subject here: Astrophotography
