    With no wifi function on the OMD, the best bet to get a good shot WITH ME IN IT, is having the camera take 5-6 shots in a row after i set the self timer.

    how would i do this with the OMD?

    i thought i ran across it in the menu but i cant find it.. thanks.

    I could be wrong on this, but here goes. On the E-M10, it would appear that you can't trigger the multi-frame shot option with the timer. What I'm going to try later today is to use the time lapse mode, and hit the shutter myself. Even if I can't get into the first few frames, I can get into some eventually. I hope this helps, or that someone has a more definitive answer, as I am also curious about this.

    i dont think this is possible with our EM5. I think the EM1 and EM10 have the intervalometer function for timelapse. if anyone has a trick on how to do this on th em5 I'm all ears

    I made myself a set of copper clips which hold the shutter button down ... since this function is almost impossible to find on the cameras we own.
    By using anti-shock delay and continuous mode it just keeps taking photos ... like an intervalometer.

    Or use the intervalometer :eek: if it has one.

    TriggerTrap Mobile might interest you. http://triggertrap.com/products/triggertrap-mobile/ It's not wireless, but it has many triggering options, including acting as an intervalometer. I use it for multiple exposures for astrophotography while I snooze. It works though iOS and Android devices.

    Couldn't you just set the shutter delay to 12 seconds (which is one of the built-in options)? Or shoot video. Since it's HD, it delivers some really nice stills.

    I wanted more control over the timer delay and the ability to fire of shots at desired intervals/exposures. After some research on ebay etc, I settled on the following from Adorama, Phottix Aion Wireless Timer and Shutter Release for Olympus. Link
    I really like the build quality and performance.

    As a bonus, I've been able to use it with my X-E1 as well, with the appropriate cable ofcourse :smile:
