    It might help if Olympus could manage something better than USB 2 on their brand new TG-6 tough waterproof camera.

      Re: What USB Could Do

      I think I said some while ago that it is time that camera manufacturers realized that they were making computers with a built in dedicated imaging device and should look to the computer side of things a bit more - screen/evf resolution, menu system, customisation, and storage to name a few.

        I was very surprised to find my E-M1 mk ii i) had a USB-C port that ii) is only used for data transfer... USB-C can handle charging, video and even networking with ease!

          Can we plug a USB-C SD reader into that port?

            I use the USB-C port for downloading image files to my computer. A pet irritation is that, if I forget to switch-off after a transfer, there seems to be no auto-off and I end up with a flat battery. With a card reader, the power comes from the computer, so no problem.

              Re: What USB Could Do

              I have mixed feelings about any cable attached to the camera, there is too much opportunity for the cable to be knocked/caught up etc and the most fixed component (the computer) will not move, but the camera will get dragged onto the floor.

              The tension / stress involved in updating the camera firmware is bad enough without the hazard of the camera being dragged onto the floor.

                Yes! I tripped over mine and wrecked the port.

                  I started using a cable for downloading after I bent the pins for the CF card in my camera, when using a card reader. SD card contacts seem to be much more robust but my old ways persist
