I just got my Polaris and it connects to my OM-1 but I cannot control iso/shutter/focus etc. Pressing the Green shutter button yields "Camera Busy, Shoot Failed".

The camera is set to 'Raw/Remote' and Manual exposure. Also tried Aperture too.

How did you get control of the OM-1 ?

I had similar issues with my Canon EOS M5. Obviously, it is not completely supported, mostly because of what Canon did with that camera.
Therefore I had to look for some work-around.
I ended up using remote shutter, which I program for shooting sequences.
I use PIXEL TW-283 remote and it solves the problem.
The only inconvenience is that I have to use my camera display both for alignment and to track the results. But in all other respect, this works perfectly for shooting single objects.
I plan to use Benro Polaris shutter cable, but did not find the one yet, which connector would fit to Polaris and would not obstruct the motors/knobs of the Polaris itself. Therefore for panoramas I still work on the solution.
