The Olympus E-M10 Mark II has two shutter modes called Anti-Shock and Silent. The following picture shows the Anti-Shock/Silent page of the Advanced shooting options menu:
To fully understand the meaning of these modes, you need to be familiar with some concepts.

Once you understand the concepts above, you can understand the Olympus E-M10 settings.
|AEL||Auto Exposure Locking: Press the assigned button once to lock the exposure and display AEL on the monitor. Press the button again to cancel the lock.|
|AFL||Auto Focus Locking.|
|BKT||Bracketing: General technique of taking several shots of the same subject using different camera settings.|
|C-AF||Continuous Auto Focus: The camera repeats focusing while the shutter button remains pressed halfway.|
|EFCS||Electronic Front-Curtain Shutter: also known as Electronic First Shutter Curtain (EFSC). It is a feature to eliminate camera shake originating from the shutter mechanism.|
|ESP||Electro-selective pattern: Digital ESP-metering measures the brightness of the center of the subject and the surrounding area separately.|
|EV||Exposure Value is a number that represents a combination of a camera's shutter speed and f-number. A difference of 1 EV corresponds to a standard power-of-2 exposure step (one stop).|
|EVF||Electronic Viewfinder: The image captured by the lens is projected electronically onto a miniature display.|
|HDR||High Dynamic Range: technique used to reproduce a greater dynamic range of luminosity, see High-dynamic-range imaging.|
|HP||Home Position for Auto Focus Area. You can associate the Home action to a function key, then set the default AF area using the Menu ⇒ Custom menu ⇒ AF/MF ⇒ Set Home.|
|LV||Live View: A mode which allows to view the photographic sensor output in almost realtime on the camera's LCD screen.|
|MF||Manual Focus: Manually focus on any position by operating the focus ring on the lens.|
|ND||Neutral Denisty filter: stops light reaching the camera sensor, allowing a higher aperture and/or a longer exposure time.|
|RC mode||Remote Control Mode for external flash units.|
|S-AF||Single Auto Focus: The camera focuses once when the shutter button is pressed halfway.|
|SCP||Super Control Panel: Activated on the monitor or into the viewfinder with the OK button, allows you to set the shooting options.|
|S-OVF||Simulate an Optical Viewfinder: Viewfinder display similar to an optical viewfinder.|
|WB||White Balance: Is used to adjust colors to match the color of the light source so that white objects appear white.|
|L, M, S||Large, Middle, Small: Presets for image size in pixels. From 4608×3456 to 640×480.|
|SF, F, N, B||Super Fine, Fine, Normal, Basic: JPEG compression rate, from about 1/2.7 to 1/12.|
|Portrait||According to manual, it produces beautiful skin tones.|
|e-Portrait||The manual says about this mode that it produces smooth skin textures.|
The OLYMPUS Image Share Android app has a very poor rating from users (2,7 out of 5 stars, at present). Nevertheless I downloaded the big, fat app (over 50 Mb) to give it a try.
The app will require the following Android permissions:
