USB spec

Anyone know whether its USB 1, 2 or 3?

I want to tether the camera to the laptop with a 5 or 10 meter long lead, anyone tried this?

Re: USB spec

The Olympus website says USB 3, but I can't find any comments about the length of cable that is permissible.

Re: USB spec

Stick to the cable they provide. If you need USB C at the other end, buy an Anker adapter, they are excellent and tiny.


My experience with USB 3 cables gives me little confidence in longer cables. Quality and reliabiliyy vary a lot.

Any suggestions how I can use the Pro Capture feature from around 7 meters distance from the camera?

Does the Olympus remote control cable allow for half and full press? The iPhone app does not allow use of Pro Capture.

Re: USB spec

Yes, the remote does half and full press. But you can buy a cheap remote, you need one compatible with the Canon RS-60E3 (I have one). You will find these easily on eBay or Amazon, very cheap. It uses a standard 2.5mm stereo plug, so you could buy a standard 2.5mm stereo extension lead and try that. Let us know if it works, I think it will.


Or you could buy a wireless remote, that would work and be even better. Make sure you get one compatible with Canon RS-60E3. They don't cost a lot.

I've used a 3m and 2m and used them joined in series and not had any problems.
