    really useful book fits easily fits in the bag and is a handy field reference for the camera

  3. What a perfect quick guide to your camera! I just love this pocket guide. Covers all the salient things and has very easy to follow tabs guiding you to the section you need.
    This guide covers all the essentials, including the physical aspects of the camera, i.e. what the buttons are for, and most, if not all, of the settings you would need for most situations.

    Although it is a small guide, the detail is impressive: for autofocus target modes, the guide describes each auto focus mode clearly and helpfully. The same with drive modes. In most cases, you would not need to consult a complete manual to understand, for example, how to achieve focus.

    The guide also tells us how to set up our camera initially, including the information display. The helpful booklet goes on to describe how to shoot HDR, multiple exposures, etc. What more could we ask for?

    At the end of the booklet we are given several scenarios with instructions as to how best to capture images in those settings. I especially appreciate this kind of help, the kind not usually included in your camera’s factory manual.

    Best of all, the booklet is quite compact and could fit in the average jacket pocket and certainly in a small enclosure in your camera bag. The design is brilliant and the execution was well done. I will use this guide often as it substitutes for the entire manual in many situations.

    I highly recommend this pocket guide for E-M1 Mark III. I also have the more extensive book which goes into great detail, but this pocket guide is perfect for double checking or reminders of how to best use this complex and customizable camera. It is easy to carry around and grab to quickly check a setting and make a change.

    This pocket guide is excellen,t covering the most used settings. Considering the size, the amount of detailed information is impressive and very useful. I like the compact size and layout with tabs, and it looks pretty durable. I keep it in my camera bag to make sure I always have it with me.

    A couple of suggestions for the next update would be an index in the back for quick references and to include all very unique features of the Olympus E-M1 Mk3.
    Section 4 covers “Other helpful settings” with Pro Capture, High Res, and Starry Sky, but ND Filter and Focus stacking are missing. I have used all these functions but sometimes don’t remember all details. These are the times when this pocket guide will be most helpful.
