Couple of questions, and yes I have RTFM but remain baffled.
1. After taking a shot I want the shot taken to appear on the rear LCD with the shooting info for X seconds. What menu item controls this basic function?
2. When using the grip is there a way to assign the on-camera shutter button to be an Fn button? I think I already know the answer to this but it sure would be handy to have as I don't need two shutter buttons but I would love to have a larger Fn button as Fn2 is in an awkward...Show more →
1 - Image playback is controlled by the 'Rec View' setting in the 'Wrench' menu - you can set it to 'Auto', which will display the image until you half-press the shutter, or set it to a number of timed settings from .3-20 seconds.
2 - you do already know the answer to this question
I'm glad that the grip is a separate item - this gives the greatest flexibility for users, with three different configurations to choose from. With no grip, you have the smallest, lightest option; with the battery holder attached, you get a larger, more stable 'platform' for larger lenses and a very useful portrait grip; the horizontal grip falls in the middle.
I've been shooting professionally with the OM-D for about three months (got my first one on 4/19, second in June), and could not be happier. I was previously shooting similar work with a 5D2/7D combo, and my current bag (with all of my m43 equipment) is a Retrospective 7 that weighs about 1/2 of my old Retrospective 30 with two bodies and four lenses. I've found that the OM-D is completely usable up to 6400 ISO (particularly for smaller shots that will be displayed primarily on the web), and the Shadow/Highlight mode has cut my post-processing time down dramatically. It's completely revolutionized how I work.
