Record Screens & Menus


On the record screen you have the option to change the amount of information that is shown on the screen. Besides the standard information, which includes the quick menu, number of shots and movie length, you can also turn all of the information off or add more details including a histogram.

iAuto shooting mode is the best for anyone who wants to point-n-shoot. The camera will automatically choose the best camera settings for your situation, including the best scene mode if one is available.


In order to make this camera as easy to use as possible, Olympus has added an in-camera manual so you can look up a function and learn about the camera at any time, the only thing you have to do is press the "?" button on the back.

By combining the menu and quick menu options into a single button, you won't have to remember which button works which menu. If the setting you are looking for is not in the quick menu, you will have to select the "setup" option at the bottom to enter the main menu.

When you select the "SCeNe" mode, you list of scene modes will appear directly beneath it and can be selected the same way. The SCeNe modes are: Portrait, Landscape, Night Scene, Night + Portrait, Sport, Indoor, Candle, Self-Portrait, Sunset, Fireworks, Multi-Fireworks, Multi-Exposure, Cuisine, Documents, Beach & Snow Bird Watching, Soft Background and Pet.
