    Anyone using the app on their iPhone or iPad to remote control their camera or collect geo tagging info for camera?

    Just using it today. Nice to be able to hand off my iphone to someone to look at photos. I ran the geotagging too, which is an awesome feature that I look forward to using when traveling. It synced up right away with my iphone, but I am having some problems with my ipad.

    So far, I have only used my I phone to take pictures with the EM-1

    When I got the E-M1, I was a tad excited that it has wireless control, until I found out that it only worked on iOS or Android phones, neither of which I have. I was hoping that I could connect to my Windows tablet and have large screen control, but as always, if you use Windows, you're relegated to the leper colony.

    It works pretty good with one minor exception - exposure compensation slider (not easily accessible every time it touched)

    Regarding Windows, to borrow a line from a gospel song in the movie The Color Purple...."Maybe God is Trying to Tell You Something". :wink:

    I don't care what Jobs/Cook or Page/Brin are saying, I'm of a different religious bent.

    Well said :) 
     
  9. Also appropriate for today, if you wireless sync your E-M1 or 10, it will reset your time for the time change.

    Harvey, awesome heads-up. Checked my camera - had just transferred an image - and, sure enough, the time had been reset! Very cool.
