    Wouldn't you just know it. My E-500 has an XD Card slot and some of those have inbuilt panorama capability. I'll try that out tomorrow.

      Quick question on the focus bracketing which will be available on EM5 mkII.
      It says that this will be done via "photo editing software", will I be able to do this with Olympus Viewer? Or will I need a third party software?

        Probably only specific focus stacking software or which has it included. Not aware that Viewer can do this. There are Freebie programmes out there.

          Just been reading the other article about this, some of the programs have trial versions, so will wait for the camera update then perhaps trial an editing program.

                  Good stuff Olympus - personally I especially like the Silent Shutter addition. But I really wish they had added the "AF Targeting Pad" functionality which is on the EM-10 Mk2...

                  AF Targeting Pad
                  For intuitive focussing control while looking through the viewfinder, you can change the auto focus target to suit your subject by simply using your finger on the touch screen on the rear of the camera. Touch the screen and move the AF point to where you want it and still follow the action through the viewfinder at the same time.

                    I love the idea of the AF Targeting pad, but from the number of "nose prints" on my screen whilst taking photos using the EVF most of my pictures would be focussed on bottom left, regardless of where I'd meant to focus!

                    I am also looking forward to the focus stacking functionality, but I wish they had extended it to all lenses - now I really will have to buy the 60mm Macro. Also in the original press release it say's that focus bracketting will work with "Micro Four Thirds standard AF lenses" - does this mean that the camera designed to work with quality legacy lenses won't be able to use this feature with Four Thirds lenses - I'd really like to use it with my Sigma 150mm Macro. I guess this will be answered in November.

                    Cheers,

                    Ralph.

                      Your nose wouldn't select the focus point (if you're using your right eye) because the E-M10 Mk II uses the lower right corner (or at least the right side) only. The focus bracketing has probably been restricted to known fast focussing & step-able CD-AF lenses to be sufficiently effective.

                        I hope it will work with any lens that can use auto focus. If a lens is manual focus only then I don't see how it can possibly work.

                          have to admit I haven't taken much notice of updates but keep thinking I should add them and reset the camera now I know it better. Notice the 'know' which is not the same as 'understand' . I generally use it like a 1980s camera; just wish it had manual wind on so I don't use so much film ..... umm; memory

                          How many are thinking "whats manual wind on ?
                          If you have too much wind should you be doing it manually, or should you visit your doctor?

                            Interesting. I'd have found that useful, but I'm very left-eyed so I'd have had to have given it a careful tryout. I use back button focus with my thumb on Fn1, though, so that might also require some manual gymnastics!

                            It would be good if it turns up in the mythical M1 II.

                                Silent shutter allows speeds between 1/8 to 1/16000 sec, but supported ISO speeds are ISO LOW to 3200 only.
