Firstly, you’ll need to download the Olfi app to your smartphone or tablet. This is available for both iOS and Android. With your Olfi one.five powered on and in a video or photo mode, press the up settings button to activate Wi-Fi. You will then need to connect your mobile device to your Olfi using your mobile device’s Wi-Fi settings. You will notice that your Olfi acts as a Wi-Fi hotspot (it will not provide an internet connection). Open the app and you can now control your Olfi.

Power up your Olfi and head over to the main menu using the power/mode button. Scroll through the icons using the up/down settings buttons until you reach the “Remote Control” symbol. Use the shutter button to enter. Press the down settings button to select “On” and confirm by using the shutter button. Next, select “Remote Control Pairing” by using the down settings buttons and confirm with the shutter. The screen will prompt you to press both the record and photo buttons on the remote simultaneously. Once you have completed this, the camera will confirm that the remote is connected. You can now return to your desired shooting mode. If you are having difficulty, confirm that the remote lights up when a button is pressed. If not, the remote battery may be flat. This can be changed and uses a watch style battery.

On the under side of the waterproof remote control, there are 4 small rubber looking circles. With your craft knife, gently lift the rubber covers. Underneath there will be small screws. Using your screwdriver, unscrew these screws to remove the back door. The rest is pretty self explanatory.

*However, when putting the back door back on, ensure you line up the 3 points on the back door and the battery compartment, to ensure that the door goes on easily. When you’re all done, the rubber covers you removed at the start should just sit back in place when everything is put back together – just ensure you tamp them down.

You can check your camera’s current firmware version in the setup menu. Download the latest version – click here.  For a step by step video of how to update and check your firmware version watch the video tutorial above on firmware.

Yes, your Olfi has a dedicated car mode. This can be accessed via the main menu.

please watch our in depth video and photo settings tutorials.

A video-lapse takes the work out of creating a great time-lapse video. When shooting a normal time-lapse, your camera produces a photo every X seconds. To play these back as a sequence or video, you need to learn how to edit, and this can take time or be over complicated for your needs. This is where videolapse comes in to its own. A videolapse automatically creates a video from a sequence of images taken every X seconds. You can choose your resolution and frame rate too. You can treat this as a super fast motion video, ideal for sunsets etc.

This symbol indicates that you have Gyro Stabilisation turned on.

This indicates that you have distortion correction turned on. This helps to reduce the fisheye effect produced by your Olfi’s ultra wide angle lens.
