WiFi File transfer

Not sure if this have been covered before.

There is nothing new that the O.I. share will only read JPG files. ORFs are ignored. With 2 slots to play with and the Slot 1 which is UHS-II, but Slot 2 is only UHS-I. I have set the Slot 1 to ORFs + Video and Slot 2 to JPGs.

Now comes the funny part. This was working fine. I could transfer files from EM1.2 to my phone without any problem till firmware updated and then suddenly all that stopped

According to the settings, it was in H1.

H1.1.1, Dual Independent,

H1.1.4 Playback was assigned to Slot 1 by default, I had that changed.

That did not work. The O.I.Share says no photos.

Lots of digging around, I found some strange setting.

In H1.1.1 One muse set to STANDARD then to H1.1.4 set playback to Slot 2 (or the slot that have the JPGs.)

Then switch back to all other H1.1.1 modes and that WiFi file transfer works.

Strange way for the WiFi transfer to work.

I am not aware of any s/w that can do that without requiring some extra hardware. The raw .ORF files are large and I guess transferring over WiFi would be a big drain on the batteries.

Re: WiFi File transfer

I’ve had a good run with Toshiba Flash Air SD cards. Perfect for transferring photos (including ORFs) to the phone, but YMMV for the PC transfer (I found it problematic with my Mac, but it should be simple as the card runs a simple web server/page). No big hit on battery as the WiFi function switches off automatically if you don’t connect to it soon after switching your camera on.

Panasonic cameras can do this without any issue... I started a thread in this very forum wondering why Olympus has been less forthcoming with feature upgrades (than they were for the MkI) and specifically mentioned I'd have liked to see this feature available.
