- [Voiceover] The Olympus EM Series cameras offer a compelling range of features in compact packages. The cameras are built upon the popular micro 4/3rd standard which means there's a lot of flexibility here. That's because the cameras are supporting a standard that many manufacturers use including Olympus, Panasonic and Black Magic which leads to a wide range of third party accessories. Hi, my name's Rich Harrington, and I'd like to welcome you to this course where we'll be exploring the many different ways to performance tune your Olympus EM Series camera. The goal here is to get beyond just the basics and to move into some of the more useful features, accessories and menu items that you can use to improve your shooting options.
Sure, you could put the camera in auto mode and get pretty good results, but it really comes when you move beyond that.
