    When set to WIFI my E-M1 LV shows the white WIFI setup screen and not the view as seen by the camera.

    Is this how it should be....... the view from the camera is visible on my iPhone or iPad only

    If this is not right, how do I get LV on the camera and iPhone please.

    TIA

    AFAIK the only way to get tethered mode operation (E-M1 only) is to use the cabled tethering mode from Olympus Viewer.

    That is how it should be & that QR code or password given is for connecting the WiFi to an iPhone/pad etc. Nothing is wrong at all. Pages 92 & 123 (of the E-M1 manual version 2) explain it all.

    Sorry folks but if you put your remote software on your phone or tablet into remote shutter mode the Liveview on the cameras LCD will appear and the setup screen with the WiFi info will go away automatically.

    That is correct, but the original question is how to get the live view on the camera and phone, which is not possible. It's either LV on the phone, or as you stated, using the phone as a wireless shutter release.

    Sorry, I mis-read the question, but on the other hand why would we want both simultaneously?

    Another thing to note about the Remote Shutter Release function is that it allows automatic exposure bracketing with a single touch on the remote shutter release screen.

    Why not?
    I was just after clafification, expecting the LV after the white setup screen that's all.
