I have just spent the past 2 weeks trying to find out if the Olympus Studio Live View fuction previewed in the USA is to be released. After numerous emails, telephone calls, and faxes to Olympus U.K, Japan, and the U.S.A, Oly in Germany emailed to say "We never receive any information in advance on what will be released from Olympus Japan".

So there you have it. I don't know what Olympus are up to, but whatever it is, it's not supporting their numerous, loyal customers who want to expand the versatility of their cameras.

Someone suggested using a split cable (USB AV/PC-2) to connect both to a PC and to a video monitor. There are two problems here; the first is that this cable is unavailable outside of the USA. Secondly, this is a poor fix, image quality is limited by the native resolution of the monitor.

Olympus make fine products, but their customer service frankly stinks. I am certainly giving consideration to moving to Nikon.

I look forward to a reply.

Best wishes,
