Default OM-D EM-1 Bracketing

Hi All,

I do a bit od HDR ... but I don't like the way the "preset" HDR is working on the EM-1.

It seems that the bracketing is working better ... but I can only take 3 shots (+1,0,-1).

Anyone knows how to increase to at least 5???

Txs!

the E-M5 will let you do up to 7 bracketed shots, and allow you to vary the exposure spacing. I couldn't imagine the E-M1 not offering at least that many. You probably just need to change the option in your menu to the desired number of shots and exposure spacing. With my E-M5 the brackting option is under Menu 2.

In fact, I was thinking the same thing.

The EM-5 is very easy to setup for "manual" HDR With .3, .7 or 1 EV ... but I wasn't able to cannot find it in the EM-1 menu system.

Finally, they kind of "hide" it.

You go to menu 2, select Bracketing and move it to "on" ... and click on the right arrow to setup your bracketing (like the EM-5).

I found the HDR mode in the EM-1 ... basically useless for HDR !

Look at page 59 from the M1 manual showing how to bracket using HDR. You can download the manual from the Olympus site.

Agreed. I did see a little more dynamic range using the 2 built-in HDR functions but neither comes anywhere near what you can get doing it the old-fashion way.

Can someone tell me if the M1 is the same size as the OM D film camera?

Hi James-

Here's a rather crummy hand-held low-light photo but it will give you some idea of the difference in size. The em1 is a little shorter in length but a bit taller. The em1 also has the nice grip. I can't really feel a difference in weight just by holding them but I suppose there is.

Thanks, so the M1 isn't as small as I thought it would be which would be good for me. I can always go to my friends that has an OMD film camera and see what it feels like although it would take a lot of convincing to sell my E-3 to get the M1 as I do not have very much money invested in the E-3 and there is a very low shutter count on it, something like 2500.
