Where did my blinking highlights go?

    I'm sure my OM-D showed blown highlights in bright red when composing a picture, but now it doesn't.

    I can see the red blown highlights when reviewing images using the playback function, but they don't appear in the viewfinder or rear screen when taking a picture.

    Any clues? It's a very useful feature which I really want to use.

    Thanks

    Keep tapping the Info until it appears.

    If you cycle through all of the Info modes and it doesn't show up, go to Menu, Gears, J, Info Settings, and make sure highlights are turned on.

    Ah - sorted thanks. For some reason the Shadows/Highlights was turned off (I must have done that accidentally).

    Or if you reset the camera in any way, or you used a MySet that desn't have that enabled.
