Hi all,

New GH2 user. For the life of me I cannot figure out how to engage the ETC mode. I've read the manual, searched Google, and have yet to find what I need. I've turned it on in the menu, but how do I activate it (for both video and stills)?

Can anyone help a newbie?

It's under the "Motion Picture" menu, page 3: "EX. TELE CONV."

For sake of ease, map that function to a user button: CUSTOM menu, "F. BUTTON SET"

Awesome, thanks, I was wondering where that was.

For ETC with stills (which is separate with firmware v1.1), go to page 4 of the "Rec" menu. I mapped ETC to the Fn3 button, which gave me the choice of separate still and video ETC options on the LCD. No need to fool with menus when I'm trying to get the shot.

The links below might help with the ETC feature. The first one is with the version 1.0 firmware. The second one is with version 1.1.

Hi,
Yes, I see it now. Mine is set to Fn3 as well (whether I did it while mucking about I'm not sure).

Thanks to all. I find the printed manual provided to be numbingly oblique.
