The OM-D E-M5 Configuration Thread


About the Magnify option in more detail: Tap once, then press INFO. Turn the Sub Dial to size the focus target (it can be much smaller than the normal size) and the arrow buttons to position the focus target in your composition. Then tap a second time to magnify. Now half-press the shutter button to image stabilize the magnified view. After achieving focus complete the press of the shutter button to take your photograph. To return to normal operation, hold the button down momentarily (eg, longer than a "tap.") This is great for Manual Focus. BUT you do not need to be in Manual Focus mode to do this - it also allows you to quickly select a 14x magnified view image stabilized focus target whenever you wish in Auto Focus mode also! Greatest thing since sliced bread and the first digital sensor

For the "secrets" to making this work see pages 87 and 88 in the manual. In section C of the Custom Menu (Release) turn Half Way Ris With IS to "ON" and in custom Menu D you need to set LV Close Up Mode to Mode 2. (Thank you, Vic for the reminder about the Menu D setting!)
