Fast access to focus peaking settings

Why useful

Focus peaking is an outstanding feature, which supports you in case you would like to focus manually with highlighted lines. In OM-D cameras you can choose between red, yellow, black, and white. Depending on the image content it is necessary to change the color as otherwise, the highlights lines are not visible. Changing the settings in the menu is too time-consuming while you shoot, therefore OM-D cameras have a shortcut to do so.

1 When you have activated focus peaking in the camera menu, your camera shows colored lines of in-focus areas, as soon as you are moving the focus ring.

2 The shortcuts work as long as the focus peaking is on. Simply press the “Info” button to open the menu to change the setting.

3 Once it opens you can directly change, color, the brightness of the image, and the intensity with the forefinger wheel. Choosing the setting, which should be changed can be chosen with the thumbwheel.
