Yes in all modes including manual, but you need to activate manual mode in the menu's.
I find it better in manual mode, set shutter speed and apertures yourself and let the camera chose the ISO, set a limit first though.
There is more about it here CB.
That's very useful. I didn't realise you could use auto-ISO in Manual mode.
I only ever use aperture-priority or manual (about 50/50).
Quote: There`s been a lot of talk about a fast 12-40mm being on the horizon, could it be the next packaged kit lens.
Rather doubt it - it will likely cost more than the camera body!

Indeed.......................... "For instance, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 has better dynamic range than ANY Canon DSLR ever made".
That will ruffle a few feathers. Lol!

Very helpful Paul, thanks. I remember this being described in the Pentax manual I had.
I have a session coming up at my camera club where I will be showing how to shoot bubbles and was mulling over how best to do this "Live" when I remembered playing with the AV outlet from the EM-5, so I had another go.
Sure enough, it is possible to shoot "sort of tethered" by using the AV cable from the mini USB multi-port into the back of my LG LCD TV. The camera LCD view is transferred to the TV screen and I can then use the camera controls in the usual way to operate the camera and take shots as per normal, using the TV in place of the camera LCD.
I can also view the images on the TV screen once they are taken using the normal camera controls
This isn't something that is explicity covered in the manual although its interesting it only states that Quote: • You cannot shoot pictures or movies when the HDMI cable is connected.
so I guess that may implicitly mean that you can with the AV cable?
Has anyone else used this method, if so, is there anything to watch out for?
(I wonder if you have a touch-screen TV whether you will be able to trigger the camera this way, hmmm? )
Does anyone find books like this any good? At over £30 it seems a tad pricey.
I have bought similar books in the past, but have found that they state the obvious (especially after one has owned the camera for a while) and deal with obscure facilities which I have no interest in.
Would be a waist of money for me
Yes, for me as well I think.
There is already a wealth of information on the web, sometimes paper might be more convenient but I can live with that.
Quote: There is already a wealth of information on the web
Yes, almost too much information sometimes!
It says a lot for the quality of the content when the book description says 12 MP resolution.
Just done a comparison with the Fujifilm X20 and OMD EM5. Seems like the only thing that'd sway me towards one or the other is that the OMD has interchangeable lenses (but is twice the price). And I would like a further reach than the X20 offers. But is the OMD worth an extra £500? Ho hum, there's no such thing as a perfect camera.
The two are worlds apart Chris, that`s why I own both the x10 and OMD and each have there place.
Unless you really need the faster processor, viewfinder information and sensor, the x10 is still good and its a whole lot cheaper than the x20.
The Fuji X10/X20 are niche products. You buy them for similar reasons as for buying a classic car.
No you don`t, DSLR`s maybe

Good comeback! Lol!
I`ve got an old bulb release that is probably older than me, works perfectly on the x10
