Re: New Firmware 1.1 Released

LR still opens the RAW files after the firmware update, but as the PP has stated there is only provisional support at present.

Have had a few incidents of the card being read for ages when switching on and also if I've removed/reinserted the card. I've put it down to the SD card but who knows.

I have also had problems with both LR and PS trying to stitch a panorama. Just says unexpected error and leaves it at that.

Both of these could logically be down to RAW file problems but unproven as yet.

The other custom settings for these seem OK - as far as I can tell - though I've not trawled through all the menus to see if anything else is missing (that is, if I can remember what was there).

Before doing the update, I also used the updater to save my settings - I've also tried loading this earlier version too, with exactly the same results. Has anyone come across anything else not saved?
Maria,
My experience was similar - except it changed to shutter = 1/400 and aperture = F4.5
I also noticed that the Exp Comp setting which I have specified for the C1, C2 & C3 modes had reverted to 0.

I surmised that post-update settings reload may use the shutter, aperture, ExpComp values that applied to Manual Mode prior to the update.

However, I then reloaded the Camera settings from a previously created Settings file but this also failed to re-establish my previous Custom mode shutter/Aperture & ExpComp values.

So this does seem like a bug/oversight in the v2 Camera Updater program. I shall email Olympus tech support regarding this issue.

Re: New Firmware 1.1 Released

As mentioned above, I contacted Olympus support noting:
"I have recently updated my camera firmware to v1.1.
On completion of this update the Olympus CameraUpdater program re-applied my Main & Custom settings values.

However the Manual mode shutter speed, lens aperture & Exp Comp. values that I had previously saved for each C1, C2, & C3 configuration were NOT restored.
...
Is this a CameraUpdater feature or a bug?
If intentional this is a serious shortcoming which reduces the benefit of the Save/Restore settings feature in CameraUpdater v2."


The repsonse from Olympus was:
"You are very correct in your thinking. The restore function works with all pre-programmed settings.
A pre-programed setting does not include dial-in settings like shutter speed and Aperture."


Given that the camera does remember the 'dial-in settings' which have been assigned for each Custom mode (and restores them following Power-off & on), it seems illogical that these values aren't included in the settings file created by Camera Updater.

Re: New Firmware 1.1 Released

It doesn't make sense - the whole idea of having C1 - 3 is to save settings that can then be quickly accessed - including preferred aperture and speed. I've now contacted support too - maybe if enough people complain, they'll change it.

Re: New Firmware 1.1 Released

This is the response I got from Olympus support - it looks like they have listened...

At this time I have to advise that the retention of settings applies to only certain functions (see p 165 of your manual) such as the specialist functions of the camera's buttons. Shutter speed and aperture functions are not retained, however I am reliably informed that our R&D department are addressing this issue after feedback from users and are planning to implement the update required soon. I do apologise for the inconvenience in the meantime.

Re: New Firmware 1.1 Released

Fuji users drone on for hours about how responsive the manufacturer is to user input and how they extend the functionality of earlier bodies with FW updates, but Olympus nowadays excel in these regards.

(Don't ask about how responsive Sony are, by the way: their contributions consist solely of releasing useless apps in the app-alling and virtually unusable PlayMemories store... )

When I had the A7Rii I was interested in an app from the Sony store that seemed to do what the Livetime function does on the Olympus cameras. I was amazed to discover that it only worked on the A7s. I did download (i.e. buy) one of the other apps but was very disappointed. Apps run as little standalone programs meaning that many of the usual functions of the camera no longer work. I quickly came to the view that it seems a nice concept but the implementation is pants.

On top of that, I suspect that my persona was stolen by Russian hackers from the PlayMemories store
