Underscan on EX-1

Forgive me if this has been discussed - I did search and came up with nothing. Does the EX-1 LCD have underscan mode? I can find nothing in the manual, nor in the menus. On the Z1 they call it "Allscan" and it's a button on top, with the VCR controls. You would think a camera costing twice as much would not skimp on such a critical feature.

I believe you don't need the under-scan feature due to the ex1's lcd already displaying 100% of the frame.

Like Jeremiah said the EX-1's LCD screen is a 100% view of the image. The action safe area/marker is accurate as well as an "overscan" feature.

I hope the term "underscan" eventually goes away along with "interlaced".
