Lightbulb 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.

Re: Damien McGillicuddy is testing the EM1

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.

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

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

Re: Damien McGillicuddy is testing 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.
