Exclamation Olympus Image Share - Connection Problem

I went into the Olympus Image Space today to get hands on an E-P5

When I tried to connect my iPhone 4 it wouldn't focus on the QR code to connect to the camera.

It worked fine some time ago with the E-M1 but seems to no longer work having updated my iPhone to IOS 7.1

Seems as though I'm not alone:

Anyone else have this problem ?

Mine still works OK - when I remember to disconnect from any existing wi-fi connection!

Re: Olympus Image Share - Connection Problem

the post you link clearly has problems, but once you have paired the devices the QR code won't reconnect - it will be looking elsewhere as it already knows that one.

otoh this isn't the issue you describe as you were trying to scan a new QR code!

look out for a new version of OIShare for IOS7.1

yep - that, and the corollary of trying to upload a file to flikr while still connected to the camera, get me more often than they should!

Unhappy Re: Olympus Image Share - Connection Problem

Looks like this is not just an iPhone issue.
