Raspberry pi? It could do it with wifi

Thanks for your replies. The only controls I need are remote triggering and shutter control. The camera will be part of an astrophotography setup, connected to a Pi 4 computer running Astroberry. I am going to try to see if I can get a generic INDI driver to control the Oly's exposures via Ekos and PHD2 . Failing that, I will get a wireless intervalometer , which apparently has the correct connecting USB head for the E-M10 Mk II.
I highly doubt that USB plug is proprietary, it's just non-standard. So I need to find out what USB version it is, and hope I can find something about .5-1 ft long to connect from the Oly to the Pi that will be right next to it.

Using a Pi? Try it with wifi. When you connect a laptop to the cameras wifi, this command

tells you which commands the camera supports. Then it's a matter of working out how to parameterize those.

Example: This lists the main image directory:

here's a way to retrieve a specific file:

I have not yet tried to get it to take a photo, but this looks like the place to start:

<cgi name="exec_shutter">
<http_method type="get">
<cmd1 name="com">
<param1 name="1stpush"/>
<param1 name="2ndpush"/>
<param1 name="1st2ndpush"/>
<param1 name="2nd1strelease"/>
<param1 name="2ndrelease"/>
<param1 name="1strelease"/>

You don't need a new camera, you need a new lens.
