To keep the size down, EPM2 has lost a mode dial on top so one has to access the modes through the Menu Button. Personally it is not too bad as most of the time I will just choose Aperture Priority mode and shoot. I believe this is fine with beginners also as in majority of the situations they probably do not need to switch from Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority mode very often and at the quickest time. The SETUP sub-menu is for adjustment such as time/ date, memory card etc.
side view: hdmi and usb port
Length of lens when it is in 'unlocked' mode
Menu mode by pressing "Menu button"
This menu mainly deals with image settings such as ISO, White balance, AF mode etc.
Another menu through centre "OK" button
It takes a little used to it as at the beginning I thought they were located at the "MENU" button instead of the "OK" button. The four buttons surrounding the dials are Exposure Compensation, Flash, Timer and Frame rate, AF points.
