As outlined in my last post - http://www.soundimageplus.com/soundimageplus/2015/4/12/olympus-image-share-app-and-om-d-e-m5-ii-it-works-hdr-forget-it
it's possible to control the Olympus OM-D E-M5 II camera from a smartphone. And that's exactly what I did above, using the Image Share app. installed on my Panasonic CM1 smartphone to shoot the footage above. As has been documented elsewhere, the video performance of the OM-D E-M5 is actually pretty decent, considering what Olympus have come up with in the past.
All this yet again proves just how good this camera is. Some peripheral things are poor, the manual focus routine and the pretty useless HDR function, but for the important things including video, as shown here, this is a very capable picture (and video) creating machine. The best m4/3 ever? Well I haven't used them all, but it's certainly the best I've owned. And while the battery life is still poorer than it could / should be, there is not a lot missing from this camera. It's a dream camera for an enthusiast and a pretty capable one for a professional too.
