Re: How to ... update your firmware

You load up Olympus master on your PC

Fit the appropriate lens to the camera

Plug your camera into the PC with the USB cable that came with it and switch the camera on - it can be any USB mode I think, but I always select "storage"

Then select "Camera > Update Camera / Add Display Language " from the menu and follow the prompts which in the main relate to leaving the camera alone until the update is complete and then switching it off.

If you have lots of updates to do then just repeat the process.

There are warnings re using a fully charged battery - not that it has to be absolutely full, but you don't want a crash during a firmware update - that can be messy so make sure it has plenty of go
