IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
When using your photographic equipment, basic safety precautions should always be
followed, including the following:
• Read and understand all instructions before using.
• Close supervision is necessary when any flash is used by or near children. Do not leave
flash unattended while in use.
• Care must be taken as burns can occur from touching hot parts.
• Do not operate if the flash has been dropped or damaged - until it has been examined by
qualified service personnel.
• Let flash cool completely before putting away.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not immerse this flash in water or other liquids.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble this flash, but take it to qualified
service personnel when service or repair work is required. Incorrect reassembly can
cause electric shock when the flash is used subsequently.
• The use of an accessory attachment not recommended by the manufacturer may cause a
risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons.

• When shooting photographs with the lens set to telephoto, the subject may become
distorted. In these cases, use a tripod.
• If the camera is used for extended periods, the temperature of the image pickup device
will rise and noise and colored fog may appear in images. Turn off the camera for a short
time. Noise and colored fog may also appear in images recorded at high ISO sensitivity
settings. If the temperature rises further, the camera will turn off automatically.

Bulb photography (BULB): The shutter remains open while the shutter button is pressed.
The exposure ends when the shutter button is released.
Time photography (TIME):
The exposure begins when the shutter button is pressed all
the way down. To end the exposure, press the shutter button
all the way down again.
# Cautions
• ISO sensitivity can be set to a value up to ISO 1600 for live bulb and live time
photography.
• To reduce camera blur during long exposures, mount the camera on a tripod and use a
remote cable (P. 120).
• The following features are not available during long exposures:
Sequential shooting/self-timer shooting/AE bracket shooting/image stabilizer/
flash bracketing/multiple exposure*
* An option other than [Off] is selected for [Live BULB] or [Live TIME].

Basic operations
When using [LIVE TIME], the progress of the exposure will be displayed in the monitor
during shooting. The display can also be refreshed by pressing the shutter button
halfway. In addition, [Live BULB] can be used to display the image exposure during
bulb photography. g “Using the custom menus” (P. 71)
Noise in images
While shooting at slow shutter speeds, noise may appear on screen. These phenomena
occur when the temperature rises in the image pickup device or image pickup device
internal drive circuit, causing current to be generated in those sections of the image pickup
device that are not normally exposed to light. This can also occur when shooting with a
high ISO setting in a high-temperature environment. To reduce this noise, the camera
activates the noise reduction function. g [Noise Reduct.] (P. 75)
Using movie mode (n)
Movie mode (n) can be used to film movies with special effects.
You can create movies that take advantage of the effects available in still photography
mode. Use live control to select the settings. g “Adding effects to a movie [Movie
Effect]” (P. 86)
You can also apply an after-image effect or zoom in on an area of the image during
movie recording. [Movie Effect] in the custom menu must be set to [On] before making
these settings. g [Z Movie] (P. 78)

• The image stabilizer cannot correct excessive camera shake or camera shake that occurs
when the shutter speed is set to the slowest speed. In these cases, it is recommended
that you use a tripod.
• When using a tripod, set [Image Stabilizer] to [OFF].
• When using a lens with an image stabilization function switch, priority is given to the lens
side setting.
• You may notice an operating sound or vibration when the image stabilizer is activated.
• The image stabilizer will not activate at shutter speeds of over 2 seconds.

After pressing the INFO button, use HI
buttons to select a color temperature and then
press Q.
One-touch white balance
Measure white balance by framing a piece of paper or other white object under the lighting
that will be used in the final photograph. This is useful when shooting a subject under natural
light, as well as under various light sources with different color temperatures.
1
Select [P] or [Q] (one-touch white balance 1 or 2) and press the INFO

% Tips
• If the subject is too bright or too dark or visibly tinted, the message [WB NG Retry] will be
displayed and no value will be recorded. Correct the problem and repeat the process from
Step 1.
Setting the image aspect
You can change the aspect ratio (horizontal-to-vertical ratio) when taking pictures.

Display the live control and select the aspect ratio item using FG.
Use HI to select an aspect ratio and press Q.
# Cautions
• JPEG images are cropped to the selected aspect ratio; RAW images, however, are not
cropped but are instead saved with information on the selected aspect ratio.
• When RAW images are played back, the selected aspect ratio is shown by a frame.

ISO sensitivity
Increasing ISO sensitivity increases noise (graininess) but allows photographs to be
taken when lighting is poor. The setting recommended in most situations is [AUTO],
which starts at ISO 200 — a value that balances noise and dynamic range — and then
adjusts ISO sensitivity according to shooting conditions.

Image taken appears whitish
This may occur when the picture is taken in backlight or semi-backlight conditions. This is
due to a phenomenon called flare or ghosting. As far as possible, consider a composition
where strong light source is not taken in the picture. Flare may occur even when a light
source is not present in the picture. Use a lens hood to shade the lens from the light source.
If a lens hood does not have effect, use your hand to shade the lens from the light.

Cleaning and storing the camera
Cleaning the camera
Turn off the camera and remove the battery before cleaning the camera.
Exterior:
• Wipe gently with a soft cloth. If the camera is very dirty, soak the cloth in mild soapy water
and wring well. Wipe the camera with the damp cloth and then dry it with a dry cloth. If you
have used the camera at the beach, use a cloth soaked in clean water and well wrung.
Monitor:
• Wipe gently with a soft cloth.
Lens:
• Blow dust off the lens with a commercially available blower. For the lens, wipe gently with
a lens cleaning paper.
Storage
6
Other
• When not using the camera for a prolonged period, remove the battery and card. Store
the camera in a cool, dry place that is well ventilated.
• Insert the battery periodically and test the camera’s functions.
• Remove dust and other foreign matter from the body and rear caps before attaching them.
• Attach the body cap to the camera to prevent dust from getting inside when no lens is
attached. Be sure to replace the front and rear lens caps before putting the lens away.
• Clean the camera after use.
• Do not store with insect repellent.
Cleaning and checking the image pickup device
This camera incorporates a dust reduction function to keep dust from getting on the
image pickup device and to remove any dust or dirt from the image pickup device
surface with ultrasonic vibrations. The dust reduction function operates when the
camera is turned on.
The dust reduction function operates at the same time as the pixel mapping, which
checks the image pickup device and image processing circuitry. Since dust reduction
is activated every time the camera’s power is turned on, the camera should be held
upright for the dust reduction function to be effective.
# Cautions
• Do not use strong solvents such as benzene or alcohol, or a chemically treated cloth.
• Avoid storing the camera in places where chemicals are treated, in order to protect the
camera from corrosion.
• Mold may form on the lens surface if the lens is left dirty.
• Check each part of the camera before use if it has not been used for a long time. Before
taking important pictures, be sure to take a test shot and check that the camera works
properly.
102 EN
Pixel Mapping - Checking the image processing functions
The pixel mapping feature allows the camera to check and adjust the image pickup
device and image processing functions. After using the monitor or taking continuous
shots, wait for at least one minute before using the pixel mapping function to ensure
that it operates correctly.

104 EN
• Use the single Olympus lithium-ion battery. Use only genuine OLYMPUS rechargeable
batteries.
• The camera’s power consumption varies widely with usage and other conditions.
• As the following consume a lot of power even without shooting, the battery will be drained
quickly.
• Performing auto focus repeatedly by pressing the shutter button halfway in shooting
mode.
• Displaying images on the monitor for a prolonged period.
• When connected to a computer or printer.
• When using a drained battery, the camera may turn off without the low battery warning
being displayed.
• The battery will not be fully charged at the time of purchase. Charge the battery using the
provided charger before use.
• The normal charging time using the provided charger is approximately 3 hours 30 minutes
(estimated).
• Do not attempt to use chargers not specifically designated for use with the supplied
battery, or to use batteries not specifically designated for use with the supplied charger.
# Cautions
• There is a risk of explosion if the battery is replaced with the incorrect battery type.
Dispose of the used battery following the instructions “Battery Handling Precautions” (P. 122).
Using your charger abroad
• The charger can be used in most home electrical sources within the range of 100 V to
240 V AC (50/60 Hz) around the world. However, depending on the country or area you
are in, the AC wall outlet may be shaped differently and the charger may require a plug
adapter to match the wall outlet. For details, ask at your local electrical shop or travel
agent.
• Do not use commercially available travel adapters as the charger may malfunction.

Card basics
• The data in the card will not be erased completely even after formatting the card or
deleting the data. When discarding, destroy the card to prevent leakage of personal
information.
• “FlashAir” SD cards have built-in wireless LAN and cannot be formatted. Use the software
supplied with the FlashAir card to format the card.
• Use the FlashAir or Eye-Fi card in compliance with the laws and regulations of the country
where the camera is used. Remove the FlashAir or Eye-Fi card from the camera or

Interchangeable lenses
Choose a lens according to the scene and your creative intent. Use
lenses designed exclusively for the Micro Four Thirds system and
bearing the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL label or the symbol shown at right.
With an adapter, you can also use Four Thirds System and OM System
lenses.
# Cautions

on the camera pointed downward. This helps prevent dust and other foreign matter from
getting inside the camera.
• Do not remove the body cap or attach the lens in dusty places.
• Do not point the lens attached to the camera toward the sun. This may cause the camera
to malfunction or even ignite due to the magnifying effect of sunlight focusing through the
lens.
• Be careful not to lose the body cap and rear cap.
• Attach the body cap to the camera to prevent dust from getting inside when no lens is
attached.

Using external flash units designated for use with this
camera
With this camera, you can use one of the separately sold external flash units to
achieve a flash suited to your needs. The external flashes communicate with the
camera, allowing you to control the camera’s flash modes with various available flash
control modes, such as TTL-AUTO and Super FP flash. An external flash unit specified
for use with this camera can be mounted on the camera by attaching it to the camera’s
hot shoe. You can also attach the flash to the flash bracket on the camera using the
bracket cable (optional). Refer to the documentation provided with the external flash
units as well.
The upper limit of the shutter speed is 1/200 sec. when using a flash.

# Cautions
Information
• We recommend using a single group of up to three remote flash units.
• Remote flash units cannot be used for second curtain slow synchronization or anti-shock
exposures longer than 4 seconds.
• If the subject is too close to the camera, the control flashes emitted by the supplied flash
may affect exposure (this effect can be reduced by reducing the output of the supplied
flash by, for example, using a diffuser).
• The upper limit of flash synchronization timing is 1/160 sec. when using the flash in
remote control mode.
Other external flash units
Note the following when using a third-party flash unit mounted on the camera hot shoe:
110 EN
• Using obsolete flash units that apply currents of more than about 24 V to the camera hot
shoe X-contact will damage the camera.
• Connecting flash units with signal contacts that do not conform to Olympus specifications
may damage the camera.
• Use only with the camera in shooting mode M at shutter speeds slower than 1/160 s and
at ISO settings other than [Auto].
• Flash control can only be performed by manually setting the flash to the ISO sensitivity
and aperture values selected with the camera. Flash brightness can be adjusted by
adjusting either ISO sensitivity or aperture.
• Use a flash with an angle of illumination suited to the lens. Angle of illumination is usually
expressed using 35-mm format equivalent focal lengths.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
• Stop using the camera immediately if
you notice any unusual odors, noise, or
smoke around it.
Never remove the batteries with bare
hands, which may cause a fire or burn your
hands.
• Never hold or operate the camera with
wet hands.
• Do not leave the camera in places where
it may be subject to extremely high
temperatures.
Doing so may cause parts to deteriorate
and, in some circumstances, cause the
camera to catch fire.
Do not use the charger if it is covered (such
as a blanket). This could cause overheating,
resulting in fire.
• Handle the camera with care to avoid
getting a low-temperature burn.
When the camera contains metal parts,
overheating can result in a low-temperature
burn. Pay attention to the following:
• When used for a long period, the camera
will get hot. If you hold on to the camera
in this state, a low temperature burn may
be caused.
• In places subject to extremely cold
temperatures, the temperature of the
camera's body may be lower than the
environmental temperature. If possible,
wear gloves when handling the camera in
cold temperatures.
• Be careful with the strap.
Be careful with the strap when you carry
the camera. It could easily catch on stray
objects - and cause serious damage.
Battery Handling Precautions
Follow these important guidelines to prevent
batteries from leaking, overheating, burning,
exploding, or causing electrical shocks or burns.
DANGER
122 EN
• The camera uses a lithium ion battery
specified by Olympus. Charge the battery
with the specified charger. Do not use any
other chargers.
• Never heat or incinerate batteries.
• Take precautions when carrying or storing
batteries to prevent them from coming into
contact with any metal objects such as
jewelry, pins, fasteners, etc.
• Never store batteries where they will be
exposed to direct sunlight, or subjected to
high temperatures in a hot vehicle, near a
heat source, etc.
• To prevent causing battery leaks or damaging
their terminals, carefully follow all instructions
regarding the use of batteries. Never attempt
to disassemble a battery or modify it in any
way, by soldering, etc.
• If battery fluid gets into your eyes, flush
your eyes immediately with clear, cold
running water and seek medical attention
immediately.
• Always store batteries out of the reach of
small children. If a child accidentally swallows
a battery, seek medical attention immediately.
• Should you notice that the charger is emitting
smoke, heat, or an unusual noise or smell,
immediately cease use and unplug the
charger from the power outlet, and then
contact an authorized distributor or service
center.
WARNING
• Keep batteries dry at all times.
• To prevent batteries from leaking,
overheating, or causing a fire or explosion,
use only batteries recommended for use with
this product.
• Insert the battery carefully as described in the
operating instructions.
• If rechargeable batteries have not been
recharged within the specified time, stop
charging them and do not use them.
• Do not use a battery if it is cracked or broken.
• If a battery leaks, becomes discolored or
deformed, or becomes abnormal in any other
way during operation, stop using the camera.
• If a battery leaks fluid onto your clothing
or skin, remove the clothing and flush the
affected area with clean, running cold water
immediately. If the fluid burns your skin, seek
medical attention immediately.
• Never subject batteries to strong shocks or
continuous vibration.
CAUTION
• Before loading, always inspect the battery
carefully for leaks, discoloration, warping, or
any other abnormality.
• The battery may become hot during
prolonged use. To avoid minor burns, do not
remove it immediately after using the camera.
• Always unload the battery from the camera
before storing the camera for a long period.
• This camera uses a lithium ion battery
specified by Olympus. Do not use any other
type of battery. For safe and proper use, read
the battery's instruction manual carefully
before using it.
• If the battery's terminals get wet or greasy,
camera contact failure may result. Wipe the
battery well with a dry cloth before use.
• Always charge a battery when using it for
the first time, or if it has not been used for a
long period.
• When operating the camera with battery
power at low temperatures, try to keep
the camera and spare battery as warm as
possible. A battery that has run down at
low temperatures may be restored after it is
warmed at room temperature.
• The number of pictures you can take may
vary depending on the shooting conditions
or battery.
• Before going on a long trip, and especially
before traveling abroad, purchase extra
batteries. A recommended battery may be
difficult to obtain while traveling.
• When the camera will not be used for an
extended period, store it in a cool place.
• Please recycle batteries to help save our
planet’s resources. When you throw away
dead batteries, be sure to cover their
terminals and always observe local laws and
regulations.
Caution for Usage Environment
Monitor
The display on the rear of the camera is an LCD
monitor.
• In the unlikely event that the monitor
breaks, do not put the liquid crystal in your
mouth. Any of the material adhering to your
hands, feet, or clothing should be rinsed off
immediately.
• A strip of light may appear on the top/bottom
of the monitor, but this is not a malfunction.
• When a subject is viewed diagonally in the
camera, the edges may appear zigzagged on
the monitor. This is not a malfunction; it will
be less noticeable in playback mode.
• In places subject to low temperatures, the
monitor may take a long time to turn on or its
color may change temporarily.
When using the camera in extremely cold
places, it is a good idea to occasionally place
it in a warm place. An monitor exhibiting poor
performance due to low temperatures will
recover in normal temperatures.
• The monitor is made with high-precision
technology. However, black spots or bright
spots of light may appear constantly on the
monitor.
Due to its characteristics or the angle at
which you are viewing the monitor, the spot
may not be uniform in color and brightness.
This is not a malfunction.
