Best guesses:

Precision Time Protocol?
Picture Transfer Protocol?

Acromyn has 87 different ones listed, so agree: we need some help to help the OP.

I think it's "Post Traumatic Pixels".

Re: Does OMD em1 have PTP

Submit a post - wake up and see this Oh well hope you had fun...

For anyone who cares...

I am getting into timelapse on the em01. The default settings for timelapse are very limited.

an available app - http://dslrdashboard.info/ works well in conjunction with nikon and canon cameras and the excellent LRTimelapse program to produce stunning timelapses.

PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) is used on the Nikons and Canons to transfer images to tablets.

I know the em01 transfers pictures via the Olypmus OI.Share app - but not sure what protocol it uses. For dslrdashboard to ever work with olympus it needs (as a starting point) a camera that uses the PTP protocol.

Hence my question. Google tells me the em5 doesn't but that is as far as I can find.

Would like to get back to the developer of dslrdashboard with some info on this...

That's all...

Cheers

Sorry, just saw this thread. The E-M1 supports Pictbridge, which is a higher level protocol. From PCTECHGUIDE.COM ("What is Pictbridge and PTP?" ):

... In PictBridge, USB is used as a physical layer, and Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) is used as the transport layer protocol. ...

Given someone working on implementing software at this level, the possibility exists that the E-M1 can be made compatible with dslrdashboard since the transport layer protocol is there, but it might take some doing.

Re: Does OMD em1 have PTP

appreciate that Godfrey - really do.

I know a while back there was an Olympus Developer api that you could subscribe to and get access to the development files for my E3.

Is there such a thing around now for the EM1? The developer would need to get access to these I imagine as the next step...apparently the Nikon and Canon development files are readily available.

Cheers

Re: Does OMD em1 have PTP

To the best of my knowledge, Olympus has not yet released an SDK for the E-M1. That said, the E-3 SDK might well have enough information in it to deduce how emulate a Pictbridge compatible client side device like a printer. Or there might be some open source code available to work with.

Re: Here you go Chumby...

Thanks for these reply's daddyo and godfrey. Will check out the link.

I signed up for the E-3 SDK but was never given access to it... my request seemed to go into the Olympus ether...

I'll keep hunting around...

Cheers

Looks like some nice development (reverse engineering) is going on here...

Re: Here you go Chumby...

Sorry for the somewhat rough treatment...like I said somewhat dense about such subjects!

Perhaps better in the PC, Android or Ios forums, at least folks there more than likely know of what

you speak.
