    Hey All - I am thinking of picking up an EM1, on my EM5 I can't adjust the settings on my self timer*. I like the ability to set the self timer to X seconds and Y shots. For instance 30 seconds and 5 shots.

    Does anyone know if the EM1 has this functionality?

    Cheers,
    -Joe

    * I know I can do this with a plug in cable release, but then I have to carry it with me. I picked one up on the recommendation of someone on this forum, it is great for moon shots etc.

    Pressing the bracketing button on the top of the camera, and going to the timer C option, and pressing info gives the following:
    timer (start delay, 1-30s)
    number of frames (0-10)
    interval time (0.5 - 3s)
    every frame auto focus (on or off)

    Edit: see below

    There is also a "time lapse settings" on/off option in Shooting Menu 2... Enabling that seems to take unlimited frames until pressing Menu.
    Interval seems to be based on the setting mentioned in my previous post.

    So, you could get what you want, plus extra frames.

    On the iOS and Android apps, it looks like you can set the interval in continuous mode up to 30s.
