AP mode

Amateur Photographer - - Testbench Camera Test -

PER­HAPS the E- M10 III’s best new idea is the AP (Ad­vanced Pho­tog­ra­phy) mode on the top-plate dial. This takes a whole bunch of ex­ist­ing fea­tures that Olym­pus has pre­vi­ously hid­den away in its labyrinthine menu sys­tem, and groups them on to a ded­i­cated po­si­tion on the mode dial. Press­ing the cam­era’s short­cut but­ton brings up a nicely de­signed touch menu to se­lect be­tween them, with a brief de­scrip­tion and il­lus­tra­tion of what each does. Here, you’ll find some com­mon func­tions such as dou­ble- ex­po­sure, high- dy­nam­i­crange shoot­ing, silent mode and au­to­ex­po­sure brack­et­ing. How­ever, some are unique to Olym­pus, in­clud­ing Keystone Cor­rec­tion for fix­ing con­verg­ing ver­ti­cals, and Live Time and Live Com­pos­ite modes for get­ting per­fect long- ex­po­sure shots at night. It’s a great way of mak­ing these cre­ative op­tions much more ac­ces­si­ble to users.

Here, I used Keystone Com­pen­sa­tion to fix con­verg­ing ver­ti­cals Olym­pus 9-18mm f/4-5.6 at 9mm, 1/400sec at f/10, ISO 200
