I tried the app with my new E-M5 Mark II camera, but it does not seem to be able to connect with the camera.
Are there any plans to upgrade so this model is supported?

Hi Johan,

I think the E-M5 Mark II should work fine, and I can see from logging that some users have connected ok.
Please can you try the following:

1. Check that the Wi-Fi on the camera is in Private mode, that you have “Find devices and content“ turned on for the Wi-Fi connection to the camera.

2. If it’s still not working, and you are using it from a laptop, please try unplugging any network cable before connecting the Wi-Fi (the camera IP address is fixed, and there may be a clash).

3. If there’s still no luck, can you send me the firmware version of your camera, and the value of the Device ID shown on the about page (hit the ? symbol, and then copy the value) to  And I’ll see if I can spot what’s going on.

Please let me know how you get on.

After discussing with Johan via email we got this working. On Windows 10 the firewall settings needed some tweaking.
