    I just got OMD EM5 and want to learn and take pictures for time lapse. I could not find in the menu to set up to take pictures at specific interval and duration. Olympus does not sell any intervalometers remote control. Please help if you have done time lapse on this camera. How and what I need? Thanks:smile:

    I bought a Giga T pro for Olympus last year and it works great

    Here is a timelapse video I did for it:

    I just got a used, yet perfect, Giga T Pro II off Amazon. I like that you can do 3 things:

    1) Wireless Remote Control. Plug the Receiver into the OM-D
    2) Cable Relese. No camera shake. Plug the Controller into the OM-D.
    3) Time Lapse. Wired or wireless.

    Nice small controller. Quality good. Display illumination useful. Time lapse settings take some getting used to though. Receiver fits hot-shoe or tripod.
