  • I just got a TG-3, to go along with my E-M1 and I was having trouble connecting the iPad to the TG-3. It was selected as a wi-fi device but the OI Share couldn't find it. The iPhone 4s worked fine ...
  • The iPad works just fine now — on both cameras. I think the E-M1's range is farther, though I need to test both in the same conditions. One thing I was happy to discover: wi-fi can work under ...
  • I follow the steps and scan the QR code and select the TG-3 in the iPad's wifi settings… but the OI Share app can never find the camera. So, I got our iPhone 4s and went through the steps — twice — ...
  • I've been having great fun with basic shooting and transferring photos via wifi on my E-M1. Last week, I tried going deeper into the menus on the app… and really messed up. I guess I must have ...

    I haven't installed ios8 Beta yet. (Actually hadn't heard of it until I just looked it up.) I hope to find an answer to this problem, as I am REALLY enjoying wifi on my E-M1.
  • Created discussions TG3 wifi trouble with iPad
    I tried a TG3 in the store today, trying to see how well the wifi works. It's just great with my E-M1 — but the TG3 just couldn't be found, after going through the step-by-step process. It was ...
  • I'm pretty well set on getting one, especially for underwater photos. Your shots look great!
  • We've bought a few items this year that were dead on arrival.
  • On rare occasions on various Oly cameras, I've held down the lens release pin while putting a lens ON. This is a bad idea, as it allows the contact points to slightly misalign. F/stops of "0" and ...
  • Replied in Great point, Joe
    Joe said, "The better image quality I care about is in terms of expression/emotions because my pictures of people are more spontaneous." These qualities of photography aren't often discussed here, ...
  • I'm really enjoying wifi stills shooting on the E-M1 — but why can't I have video on/off?
  • Replied in Can't say I have
    I usually hold onto gear for a good, long time. When I'm convinced that it is bettered in every way by newer equipment, I usually let it go. Gone are my Oly E-100RS, E-330 and E-5, for example. I ...
  • It may be related to the software's inability to control the camera in video mode, via wifi  — but it also will not do a wifi import of videos, either. Any idea why, on either missed-function?
  • Replied in Welcome, Lou
    What took you so long to join the club? I sold off my E-330 and E-5… though I've kept my E-1. Not that it gets much use — but it's there as a dependable back-up, if needed.
  • Created discussions E-M1 Wifi photo import
    NOW my wife is impressed. When I showed her how my E-M1 can shoot remotely, via wifi, she treated it like "a solution looking for a problem." Mind you, she was reading a good book at the time. Yest ...
  • Replied in Thanks all
    And thanks, Wansai for that closing testimony. If you've shot in bad Singapore conditions, I imagine that would be far worse than what I was in. My E-M1 will be going in for back-dial repairs soon ...
  • Replied in Phil
    To clarify: the foggy photo was taken when the rain had stopped and the sun was starting to peak through. What should have been a very clear photo was foggy… I'm guessing because of condensation ...
  • Yes, the MMF-3 is the weather-sealed converter. Says right on it.
  • Replied in Brian
    … so you suspect the fog was inside my lens — but cleared very quickly with (perhaps) a few twists of the zoom? It did warm up by about 5º C when the sun came out, so that could have shocked the lens.
  • Created discussions E-M1 not weather resistant?
    I've had my E-M1 and 50-200 SWD and MMF-3 in some fairly steady rain during 3 or 4 soccer games — and each time, I've gotten the feeling that there's a bit of moisture getting in, after an hour or ...
