    Instead of some of the other useless unused features......OK, name one I hear you ask?........................ART FILTERS.

    I miss my Nikon built-in remote using the tiny wireless ML-3 remote controller.

    I think no Olympus m4/3 cameras have IR receiver (not sure about Panasonic).
    Don't know why Oly drops IR receiver on m4/3, OMD especially. 4/3 cameras has it.
    It's always good to have alternative other than wire or WIFI.

    Anyway, what I really miss is tethered shooting using Olympus software (Olympus Studio or "hacked" Olympus Viewer 2)
    I know EM1 can, but I wish EPL1 and EM10 had this feature too.

    I haven't tried software for Windows someone made for Olympus cameras with WIFI, but personally I prefer wire for this purpose because it consumes less power.
    But still it's better than nothing :)

    Smartphone control is brilliant once you set it up.

    Yeah...Done that. Still prefer a 'tiny' remote control though.
