Olympus Image Share http://blog.martinbelan.com/2014/02/the-remote-control-wifi-feature-on-the-olympus-om-d-e-m1/ Olympus has created iOS and Android apps to utilise the WiFi features of the Olympus OM-D E-M1. However, there doesn't appear to be a solution for a laptop or desktop computer yet. The app currently has the following features: The Remote Control feature allows you to remotely control and take photos with the camera over WiFi. The app controls many of the basic functions of the camera including: shooting mode, shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, ISO, white balance, and sequential shooting / self timer. The app also has the ability to import and display photos on the camera SD card and transfer them to your mobile device. The photo editing function lets you edit photos on your mobile devices. The editing features include art filters and the ability to add a signature to the photo. The Geotagging feature adds location data to your photo by using the GPS information from your phone. Logging must be switched on in the app to record location information. The app matches time stamps in the geotagging log with photos on the camera in order to add the location information to the photos. Turning on the logging in the Olympus Image Share App will also drain your cell phone battery faster.

http://www.ephotozine.com/article/camranger-review-20927 CamRanger is a device that connects to select Canon or Nikon DLSR cameras via a USB cable (please visit the CamRanger website for a compatible camera list). It creates an ad-hoc Wi-Fi network that your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch can then connect to. The free CamRanger iOS app then enables control of the camera. There is no need for a computer or existing internet connection. A much more advanced remote controller but not FREE!
