Unfortunately you can’t load presets from one camera to another across models. As I was entering in all my custom options to my new E-M1.3, I decided to switch things up slightly. I am trying a new button layout that I like a lot so far.
Fn – Magnify (or exp, whatever they call this button, it used to be Fn2 on the E-m1.2)
Rec – HDR
AEL – Peaking
ISO – Rear button AF (this button used to be called Fn1 on the E-M1.2)
Fn Lever – Focus Style S-AF+MF / C-AF + Tr
Joystick – FP select
Joystick Button – FP Home
Body 1 – Custom WB
Body 2 – Live ND (or bracketing set to focus stacking, depends what I am doing)
Lens Button – DOF Preview
I find this works well for me because I do a lot of manual focusing and critical checking. So both peaking and magnify are handy to have accessible. I also do a lot of HDR. Having the button accessible immediately is nice so I can turn it on and off and adjust the brackets quickly. I have the direction pad turned off now. I am trying to train my hand to just use the joystick for FP selection. We’ll see how it goes. Having Live ND on a button, and generally set to ND8 is nice. It’s another feature I use often and having that quickly be on and off is nice. I am adjusting ISO and white balance from the super control panel now. I find this just as fast. Especially when the SCP remembers what you last adjusted.
Between this and some key items in the MyMenu, there is no more menu diving. Everything I need is immediately accessible.
