I have an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II.  This camera, like others, offers wi-fi connection.  In essence, the camera (when its wi-fi is turned on) acts a server, and a computer or iOS device can access the files on it.  For example, Safari can browse the files on the memory card in the camera and files can be downloaded one by one.

Has anyone devised a way so that Lightroom's Import function can recognize the memory card as a folder, so that I can move my photos from the camera to Lightroom without attaching the camera with a cord, or moving the memory card to a card reader?

Why not just use finder to copy the files from the camera to a folder on your hard drive and import them into LR from that location?

Hi Don, as of now lightroom doesn't support wifi transfer, the workaround would be as suggested by Dave hughes.
Thanks

No that is not a workaround as the browser only allows you to download one picture at a time.  The workaround is to take the memory card out of the camera and put in in the card reader.  Hoping Adobe and the camera companies will figure out how to leverage wifi on the cameras.
