E-M1 MkII "Equally Value"

Discussion in 'Olympus' started by Mark Salo, Apr 17, 2018.

  1. I have two E-M1 MkII bodies. I have "Equally Value" set on one but not the other. I took the same picture on both cameras with the same lens. The "1:1" view is 7x and is identical to the 7x view on the camera that does not have "Equally Value" set. Is this really a wonderful change?

    I filled out the Olympus contact form to send questions and received the following response:
    500 - Internal server error.

  2. What is "Equally Value"? Can't find that term.
  3. It's Olympus-speak for a 100% view. It's a new feature added by the v2.0 firmware update.

    Gear Menu > D2 > Default Setting > Equally Value
  4. That setting tells the camera how to zoom during review. The default is to go from full image to 2x and continue to zoom in as you scroll. When I changed my camera to equally value the zoom went from full image to 100% in one scroll.
  5. Well, I'm doing something wrong because my camera doesn't go to 100% in one scroll, it goes to 7x.
  6. Yeah, 100%, or 1:1, is 5x. When I change that setting back to "recently", it goes back to scrolling from 2x, 3x, 5x, etc.
