    OK, this may have been asked before but is there a way to set up an EM1 to automatically transfer a captured image (raw) to a laptop after shooting a shot? I know I can shoot tethered but I don't really care for having a long cable hooked up to the camera and the Post shoot preview seems small (maybe I've missed a way to increase the size of that panel?)

    My goal is to have my laptop set up and display images after shooting a shot. This is for headshots so I'd like the client to be able to see what I just shot. I don't want to use the mobile device option as I want to hold the camera and shoot and not set it just on a tripod. Any way I can have the image files automatically copy over wifi short of getting an EyeFi card?

    I've seen presentations with a Pana GX7 (iirc) where the hdmi cable was connected to a TV, and images would display briefly on the tv (or longer by pressing Play), I suspect Oly's with hdmi could do the same thing (with a TV or monitor).

    Well your answer is right there in the EyeFi (or similar) card, but then you dismissed it! :)

    I know, right!? That might be the way to go. It just seems redundant to me to have to get a wifi card for a camera that has wifi built in :)
