    Default Does your E-5 sing?

    I discovered that my E-5 can play slide shows while whistling Dixie (read: playing music). I didn't know it could sing. What will Olympus think of for its next flagship, art filters maybe?

    It seems like I paid an awful lot of money for a P&S. At least it wasn't as expensive as a Leica X1.

    Imagine how much better the E-5 image quality could be if the camera didn't have to spend time taking music lessons. It could be the very best 12Mp camera on the market.

    Oh...we already have that. OK. Sing away.

    Well,

    On the off chance you catch up on the technology it could be connected to a large monitor or a nice big flat screen TV and a slide show or video presentation for a client.

    All while whistling The National Anthem.

    I doubt it would make any difference at all. The ability to play back a couple of tiny MP3 loops is there by default for the useful feature of voice annotation recording and playback to exist, which itself is a small part of the package needed to enable video capture.

    I rate the E-5 as one of the best 12 Mpixel cameras on the market too. The distinctions between the top contenders are really "what feature mix best fits what you want to do" so an absolute "best" grade is not possible without the context of what use the camera is going to be put to.

    Well, that's easy for me. My camera will be used as a docking platform for my Zuiko HG and SHG lenses. So, for me, it's the best 12Mp camera on the market.

    I don't know about movie mode. I don't even know how to invoke it. You can, though, enter a slideshow playback mode with a choice of five(?) background tunes. It's just like my Stylus 500, circa 2005, now worth about $35 with Xd card.

Set the camera to Priority mode > push the live view button [__] > then hit the button that you would change the AF point position the one next to the FN O button its round 0 to start the movie.You have to feather the focus or preset it using MF manually.

    been set.
    [P]: Optimal aperture is set automatically according to the brightness of the subject. ISO
    sensitivity is set to AUTO.
    [A]: Depiction of background is changed by setting the aperture.
    ISO sensitivity is set to AUTO.
    [M]: You control both aperture and shutter speed. Select the shutter speed from values
    between 1/30 s and 1/4000 s.

    aperture value, and shutter speed.
    If [IMAGE STABILIZER] is activated while recording a movie, the recorded image is enlarged
    slightly. Even if [I.S.2] or [I.S.3] is selected, the setting for [I.S.1] is applied.
    Stabilization is not possible when the camera shake is excessive.
    When using a lens with the image stabilizer function, turn off the image stabilizer function of
    either the lens or the camera.
    You cannot use [g FACE DETECT] in movie mode
