For the first time ever with generous help from Larry (Griffig) I've learnt how to connect a camera's built in wifi to my phone.
Simply downloaded the Olympus OI Share app that enables the camera remotely controlled from the phone with full functionality.
I set up the camera on a tripod pointed at myself. The live image appeared on the cellphone's monitor, one light touch and bingo, another selfie!

I can foresee lots of uses for this feature, especially birding. Can't you just see me climbing gum trees
to mount my camera above an eagle's nest and forgetting which tree it was. Already I routinely forget where I parked my car.
Well at least it might put the camera's weather sealing to the test, so should be okay, at least until the eaglets hatch. *yes

Think of the positives, what great phots you might get. Pin a ribbon to the tree, but really don't advise climbing trees, leave that to the youngsters...............*chr

You're absolutely right, I'm way past it, maybe time to buy me a drone ...O:) *erm

Have you managed to repair the lens yet? :DYou are very rude and beastly to me, Andrew ... :(

Yes you can, I exceeded my super-narcissist quota years ago and now for the want of other handsome subjects I must make do with myself ... *shrug

Anyway, here's what I came home with an hour ago from my walk by the creek at the rear of my place.
Just the sort of 'orrible "grey sky of death" day I've been praying for to practice this kind of black on white shot.
Of course it isn't exactly as resplendent as a bald eagle or even a wedge-tail one so a common maggie just had to do.
I preset the camera to P-AE mode, EV +1.0, iso2500, equiv. 300mm, pre-focused on the perched target 60 feet up and waited for take-off.
In addition to the above settings, here's how the camera saw it: 1/800sec @ f/10 at 10 frames per sec. sequential shooting. Recorded in LF jpeg + RAW.
