I have just updated my XZ-10 and noted whilst on the Olympus site you can download the above. Mine came with the camera.

Interesting - I only just updated Viewer 2 the other day and it didn't hint at Viewer 3.

I've known about this for a little while as they have the update for the software on the Japan support webpage but not the download (or didn't).

EDIT: I've downloaded & installed it & there are aspects that hark back to Olympus Master in this (which was probably missed by some in Viewer 2). I'm going to have to play with it a bit more to see if I can use it the way I prefer to with easy simultaneous RAW & JPEG edit ability.

I don't think you will get any notifications with OV2 updating as it is a new program that seems to add in some of the easy features that would suit beginners from Olympus Master as well as up to date features too.
Our Aussie site has this link now. http://support.olympus-imaging.com/ov3download/index/ which would be for world use (I would think & not just for USA).

Re: Olympus Viewer 3

Hi, it's me again! While you've been sleeping I've been trying this new OV3 & there are a couple of things that would be nice if they could change it.

First of all, I usually review my images with Windows Explorer & click on a thumbnail to open it in OV2 Edit window, however, OV3 only opens the preview folder window (if that's the correct name for it).

The second thing is when in the edit window the thumbnails are across the top (instead of the bottom) & the size can't be changed unlike the OV2 version (that has the thumbnails along the bottom).

If there is a way around this, then please tell me.

Hi John. It's not an update but a new program & it can installed as well as OV2 & then you can make one of them the default program to open your files when you've decided which ever serves you best.

Re: Olympus Viewer 3

I am not sure if I am posting this in the right place but I have loaded viewer 2 onto a computer, not the one I normally use to edit pics. I can view RAW files and view and edit jpegs, however, I have been unable to edit RAW pics, will this version solve that or am I doing something wrong in version 2?

If you loaded it from an old disc it might not include support for RAW files from newer cameras until it has been updated.
