  • Windows PC WiFi Control and Image Transfer.

    A clever chap in Germany (Andreas Rebs) has created a program that provides WiFi control and transfer of images from Olympus WiFi cameras to a Windows PC...

    I hope there is a English version. It seems interesting.

      Once it is downloaded and installed, you can change it to English in the settings.

        This looks interesting. Now that I have an iPad it isn't as necessary for me right now, but should I need to do some studio type shots of people etc, it should prove quite useful.

          Re: Windows PC WiFi Control and Image Transfer.

          I have now downloaded and installed the above programme. However, I
          cannot make it work. My E-M1 is on private connection. When I open the software I get the following message: trying to connect with......and nothing happens.
          I use Windows 8, 64 bit.
          Can anybody help?

              At home, I have to stop my PC connection to the Internet WiFi Router and make a connection to the Camera.

              In a Studio, it connects automatically.

              The advantage over the Olympus OiShare on the iPad/Phone is the way it downloads files in the background, while maintaining the function of the camera.

              What will you be using it for ?

              For me it's Studio and Macro work

                    OiShare (to iPad) doesn't so I wouldn't think this would either.

                      Yes! You can choose either RAW or JPG or Both from the photo import tab.

                      OR:

                      Live import will download each file as you shoot it.

                      RAW files are slow to download, about 75 seconds
                      JPG (1024x768) takes only 3-4 seconds

                      Best to shoot first then download later. Nothing new there

                      OR:

                      Shoot RAW + Small JPG and download just the JPGs while shooting, so they are available for instant review at Laptop screen resolution.

                        That sounds extra good then. Thanks for all the beta testing feedback.

                        I'll have to try it, I can see.

                            Perfect thing to play with on a wet day...

                            Set up the camera to point out the window at a place where something may happen and sit back at the LapTop and click when it does.

                              Hey Graham! This is going to get you excited! Tethering is coming!

                              Here's a list of a few things that are reported to be coming to the E-M1 in a firmware update tomorrow (or prior to Photokina).
                              - new art filters,
                              - faster EVF refresh rate,
                              - you don’t lose magnify mode when you focus, same with peaking,
                              - art filters and peaking get BIG evf refresh rate update.
                              - tethering.
                              - Live Composite
