Question Firmware

My e620 firmware is, body & lens 1.0. Although when I connected the camera through the PC it said there is an update available, on the olympus web site there is no mention of this. Maybe it's because the camera is old.
Is it worth trying to run the update or not. Any pro or cons, Or is it just not worth it ?

Re: Firmware

Make sure the battery is fully charged and go for it, follow the instructions and don't touch anything until you see the OK message.

Re: Firmware

Thank you. I will do it when I'm over in England in a couple of weeks, reliable internet is something we don't have here, but I will defiantly take the camera with me on my next trip.
Cheers

Re: Firmware

As far as I am aware the E620 has never had a firmware update. We all stand and fall on version 1.0

Re: Firmware

What lens is attached. If it is the 14-42 (& 40-150) then that firmware is up to 1.3 & that is what it is possibly offering to update.

Re: Firmware

Was just about to try updating but PC is unstable, so will have to wait a couple of weeks.
Pity I can't connect through my ipad ��.
If I can remember, I think it was when I was installing the Olympus software it asked to check for camera updates. Don't think I actually did.
Cheers.
