Controlling your Olympus camera through your computer can be easier than fiddling with tricking menus on the camera. You can control your camera from a PC when connected to the software included in the bundle Olympus "Studio 2." Controlling from the PC stores the images directly onto the hard drive rather than having to do a memory card transfer. It also allows you to capture images, change exposure modes and choose various exposure settings, while seeing the preview on a much bigger screen than the camera viewfinder.
