      Re: Damien McGillicuddy is testing the EM1

      I'd really like to be able to "SAVE" settings from the camera via WiFi to the iPhone/Tablet/PC. Then be able to use an "APP" to adjust the settings to a named "MyMode" EG "Studio Portraits", then be able to "LOAD" them back to the camera whenever I want.

        I'm not aware of any camera which can do that, but I don't know why. It would greatly enhance useability.

          I realise that Ian, just like me wanting 12 ISO when everyone else wants 1,000,000 ISO.

          Mind you, I'd buy two of them, you always need a backup body. At least with digital you don't have to carry multiple bodies calibrated to each film stock you're shooting.
          It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

            Stephen, sorry ... it must be the OM-D Pro E-M7 then

              Although the image is poor, it looks to me like the EM1.

                It's hard to say, given the quality of that image, but I think I can see the gap between body and removable grip - which places it as the E-M5. Also the picture is from the Whitby Goth Weekend, which was held in April, probably a little too early for it to be an E-M1.
