Hi folks, I recently got a Pixel TW-283 wireless intervalometer to use with my Olympus E-M10 Mk II body, and when I plug the unit into the camera, the camera hangs and keeps cycling through the USB options asking if I want to use USB to print or be seen by a computer as a drive. This keeps me from being able to trigger the camera, the intervalometer sends a signal, the camera see it and momentarily appears as though it's shooting, but it just hangs and keeps cycling back to the USB options window. At first I thought the receiver was doing it, but I found out it's the actual cable that's doing it. I plugged in just the cable from my Vivitar wired intervalometer into the camera, and it works normally. Unfortunately I can't swap the cables, as one has a 2.5mm plug, and the other has a 3.5mm plug.
Needless to say, this has me baffled as to why a CABLE would hang the camera. I was hoping to avoid needing to have yet another cable hanging off the rig, but for the time being it will have to be. Unfortunately there's no INDI drivers for the Olympus that I can use with the Astroberry-based compact astro rig I'm putting together, so I have to use my wired intervalometer with the Olympus.
So if anyone has any experience with the Pixel unit and the E-M10 Mk II and has gotten it to work, please let me know how you're set up. Thanks.
