USB Cable??

Now I can't remember if I saw one of these in the box when it was delivered, and I seem to remember that my old E600 had one, but for the life of me I cannot find this cable.....would like to upload the update for the camera, any suggestions?? That's the trouble as you get older...your brain goes like mushy peas !!

Peter

Re: USB Cable??

Peter,
You could order a replacement cable = CB-USB6 from Luton Cameras - but like most Oly spare parts it isn't cheap!

Re: USB Cable??

Just get a cheapie from Fleabay. Just make sure it has the Olympus connection and not the conventional micro-usb.

Re: USB Cable??

Hi.
The OM-D EM-1 doesn't use a standard mini USB cable. You should have got one with your camera. I have posted pictures of the cable I received with my M1 and a Mini-USB connection to show the difference.
I hope this helps.





The cable you want is a CB-USB 6. Here is a link but I'm not vouching for the quality or its performance.
Olympus CB-USB5 / CB-USB6 USB Cable Cord Lead for: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics Olympus CB-USB5 / CB-USB6 USB Cable Cord Lead for: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics


I hope this helps.
Regards,
Steve

Re: USB Cable??

Call me a coward, but since that cable is used for firmware updates, and a goofed firmware update could brick the camera, I'd stick with genuine Oly parts for this particular cable.
