Olympus E-P5 1.3 Firmware update brings expanded OIShare manual remote control…

In my previous post while happy there was remote control, I lamented the lack of manual controls. Well Olympus delivered in full with their 2/12/2014 1.3 firmware update. So “Hello long exposure January star shots from the comfort of my living room.”

OIShare full manual controls for E-P5.

I have not played with it long, but new remote control features noticed so far are:

  • Switch between P/A/S/M/iAuto modes
  • In addition to shutter timer you can now set high speed and low speed burst
  • Live and Bulb time control
  • Full shutter/aperture/exposure/ISO and WB control

Plus you can do this utterly frivolous thing:

Down the rabbit hole. Taking a picture of remotely taking a picture.

Well done Olympus. I may have missed it, but next time send a memo or something.
