Someone on this forum recently asked, but I can't find the thread, if there was a shortcut when going through the different Info modes (on the EP1, probably applies to EPL1 and EP2) : if it hasn't been answered yet - you can keep the Info button pressed and use the wheel to go quickly through the different Info modes, both backwards and forwards. Hope it helps !

Sorry then - would only apply to EP1 and EP2 ! also, you can reduce the number of the Info screens (you probably don't need them all) in the menu (submenu D, "info setting")

I was aware of this, but it means having to hold the info button down with your left thumb while rotating the wheel with your right thumb - which just feels unnatural to me.

I prefer to reduce the number of info screens to a minumum.

One tip, if you're in the electronic levels view and want to see all the other settings, just press the +/- EV comp button next to the shutter release. :smile:

Cheers

Brian

Customization of Info button cycle

On my E-P1 this does not quite work. The horizontal and vertical level screen remains in the Info button cycle even after choosing in the menu to turn it off.

Thanks Streetshooter, always glad to show a llittle something to a more experienced shooter !
Charles, it just so happens (guess what the guys at Olympus had in mind...) that this particular function gets deactivated further down the D menu, setting the Level Gauge to Off.

;-) the techie stuff is alright, but for the real photographic stuff... I am several miles behind, judging by all those great shots on your site - but if you find the time, wouldn't mind reading about how you treat your images to get those incredible B&W like the one on Day 12 of your blog !

Link, please, to Day 12 of Streetshooter's blog

Streetshooter has some great images. I couldn't find his blog, though. Would love to see his B&W work. Thanks.

Since Don AKA Streetshooter isn't here at the moment, I'll speak for him.:biggrin:

Don doesn't have a blog per se but he has a great website and all anyone has to do is click on those hyperlinks in his signature line to see his work - and most of it is black and white.
