    Re: EM-1 Remote control wfi app

    Hmmmmm.
    I get as far as the app on my iPad reading the barcode and installing the camera profile, but then every time I try to connect to the camera to see and download images I get an 'unable to find wifi enabled Olympus camera' message (or similar). It then dumps me back to re-reading the barcode. I can't seem to find any more detailed instructions.
    The app works OK with, for example, images already installed on the tablet.
    I'm probably doing something daft, but I can't work out what it is...

        Maybe need to be sure you are not connected to another network. I was connected to the home network first time I tried you can only connect to the camera's network if you ask the iphone to in settings. It won't disconnect form the other network automiatically.

          So for the initial connection it might be an idea to move out of range of your home router? I suppose this is the situation it was designed for?

              When I switch on the WiFi in my camera, I have to select it with the Settings in the iPhone, before I run the app.

                That sounds sensible.

                  I have tried this on my ipad and iPhone, it will not work until the updated app is released ( I understand this will be soon)

                  I also have a Sony phone and it works fine on this, very easy to use and quite good fun to !

                    It is such a pity that the new system has not included the provision to use the camera as normal and simply transfer the images to a connected device as they are taken.

                    This was available on the Studio software and some E-System cameras and was very useful.

                    Hopefully they will release a new Olympus Viewer that has this exceptionally valuable capability for "Pro" users.

                      The iPad app which Ian and I were playing with was a beta version. But I think the Android version was a finished article. No doubt the delay is down to the app not yet passing Apple's testing criteria for inclusion on their "store".

                        To work as a Win8 App would be good too.

                          I suspect that will be a wait. Sadly that OS suffers from major lack of support from all manner of banks and companies.
