Olympus OM-D E-M1X - Best Exposure Settings

In my latest video (14.5.2019) I was talking about the experience that I have had with the E-M1 X now that I have used it for a couple of months.



I promised to write down the best settings for exposure.

Menu D1 > InfoSettings > LV-Info and in one of the Custom setting choose Highlight&Shadow
Menu I > Info Settings > in one of the Custom setting choose Highlight&Shadow
Shooting Menu 1 > Picture Mode > Muted > Contrast -2, Saturation -2
Menu G > Keep Warm Color > Off

Menu G > Color Space > AdobeRGB

Menu D3 > Histogram Settings > Set Highlight to the value you want the red color to appear and the same goes with the Shadow (blue color) I have set Hightlight to 253 and Shadow to 3.

Menu B1 > Dial Function > Set on each exposure modes the back dial to exposure compensation.

These settings will show the image on the LCD and EVF so that it is perfectly exposured when adjusting the exposure compensatuion so that there is no red or blue flag color in the scene. Usually you can have a half a stop brighter becouse the image that shows in the jpg and the final image is a raw-file.


Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII - My Set Up

I like Olympus cameras for their customizability. In this video from my YouTube-channel I share my settings.

Dual Card Slots - Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII

Dual Card Slots in my Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII are very handy for back up during image making. Memory Cards can fail. Having Dual Card Slots in your camera is very crucial. Especially if you do wedding photography and venues that are one time things. You cannot re-make the wedding. With camera recording to two memory cards you have a back up straight away. The if you have a memory card failure your images are not gone. You still have the other one with the images.
