Dedicated board for E-M1 II now open

I know, a bit late - but it's here now

Please post all E-M1 II discussions here from now on. I am gradually moving the stragglers here as well.

Re: Dedicated board for E-M1 II now open

I can't see how to post a NEW thread so.....here's my problem:
Just purchased an E-M1 II and am having problems linking my camera with my Android phone.
I "think" it is all setup as the two recognize each other but the phone says the camera is out of range (located side by side!). I did get it to work for a few minutes but then it stopped. Any suggestions????
Have yet to contact Olympus.

Check that your phone is not set to automatically select your home (or any other) networks.

Re: Dedicated board for E-M1 II now open

Thanks for the suggestion but I can't find anywhere on my Samsung 4(?) to do this. Probably hidden under a rock I haven't found yet. I am increasingly technologically challenged these days.........creeping old age.

Re: Dedicated board for E-M1 II now open

From the home screen, pull down from the top, press and hold the WiFi button, select the one that is currently connected, then press "Forget"

You will of course then have to reconnect when you want it again.

Good luck

It's probably worth unsticking the preview days post as all the dates are now in the past

Same problem, my Samsung S6 says it's WiFi is connected to the camera but OI.share says it can't communicate with the camera. Same as Dave, it worked ok the first time, few weeks back !

Try making the connection manually by typing in the WiFi ID & Password.

Re: Dedicated board for E-M1 II now open

Just to share with you... with iPhone is working OK, but IMHO, not enough.

If you use the phone as shutter release only, it's OK. If you use the live view mode, you cannot have hig-res nor bracketing modes. They are fully available using a PC and Oly capture SW, but not in iPad/iPhone apps.

A real pity as I planned to use iPad as an external monitor, specially in night pics and difficult manual focus scenes.

I "seem" to have solved the problem, thanks to your assistance. Further experimentation will see how it goes, ie: my phone battery died too fast night!
Thanks again, hands across the Atlantic!

Re: Dedicated board for E-M1 II now open

Like DaveC, I can't find a way of starting a new thread, so can I please post a different query? I would like my EM1-II to automatically display the shot I have just taken (like other cameras do). At the moment, I have to view the image my pushing the Playback button. I'm sure the facility is hidden in the menu somewhere, but I can't find it. Can anyone help please?

Try Spanner or Wrench then REC View to adjust the time the image is in the viewfinder. Also Page 109 in the manual.
