Olympus OMD EM1 with 12-50 lens

Recommended Posts

Hi i know I can set up an underwater mode that allows me to zoom the lens in and out with one button press but it comes with lots of other settings which I don't really want. Is it possible to set up this functionality but remain in fully manual mode ?

 

Cheers

I think you can set the power zoom to any button you might want.

Underwater mode (1-fish/3-fish) will 'jump' between 12 mm and 50 mm, but it will also change the aperture and speed to some predetermined settings (not configurable). Using the mode switch to switch from, and back to M will return the settings to the ones you have previously set and leave the lens in the zoom in or out position. Not very user friendly. Better, and easier, way is to set up 'electric zoom'. Hit the left arrow to activate. The use up and down arrows to zoom in or out. Upper right corner of the display will show zoom setting. Aperture and speed will not be affected.
