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...

I seem to recall reading very recently that the Apple software needed updating before it was 100%...

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.

Re: EM-1 Remote control wfi app

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.

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.

Re: EM-1 Remote control wfi app

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.
