Setting the camera up, if you have never owned an Olympus camera before, can be a little confusing because many of the menu items are not turned on by default, so you have to go searching for them.

First, do you have the "cogs menu" turned on? If not, hit the menu button and go down to the wrench icon, and look for the "menu display" with the little cogs to the side and turn that on. Once done, a whole new set of menu items will be available. You have to go to the "cogs" menus, to the "D" option (Display) and select "control settings".

Now, will you use iAuto, or the PASM options, art filters or scene menus? You have to select each one where you want to use the super control panel (SCP) and turn it on.

Once the SCP is enabled, you just have to press the "OK" button to have it pop up on the LCD. Press the OK button a second time or half-pressing the shutter release to turn it off.

Btw the manual is on the cd that should have come with the camera in pdf format, probably also on the olympus site. Much easier to search. Most smartphones can display pdfs too which provides a perfect way to have it with you always. Or you could upload to a cloud service like google docs if you often times use different computers that arent ur own.

P.s. here it is
