        Firmware Update for OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
        [ PEN-F ]

        [Precautions when updating firmware]

        When you update your firmware to version 2.0, camera settings are reset.

        Ver.2.0
        (May. 08 2017)
        Flash controllers manufactured by Profoto are supported.
        Backup of camera settings is possible.
        Art filters can be selected by using touch operations while viewing sample images in Art Filter mode.
        Setting minimum value for shutter speed to increase ISO sensitivity while auto ISO is set is possible.
        Improved operability of AF targeting pad.
        Ver.1.1
        (Dec. 01 2016)
        Macro Flash STF-8 is supported.
        Electronic Flash FL-900R is supported.
        Improved stability of exposure when shooting videos.
        The catch is here though, you probably can't back up your settings until after the update & only be useful if you get another update (or just want to back up settings).

          Updates all done and working. The viewfinder colours are much better, less harsh. Not tested the noise reduction yet.

          Also updated 3 lenses.


          Good job Olympus.

            Nice to get an upgrade, but I was really hoping they'd add more dial customisation - specifically the exp comp and front knob. I'd love to use the exp comp for ISO and the front knob for AF. As it is, I use neither having no use for JPEG modes and the exp comp dial is too stiff to easily use when the camera is to the eye.

                With the rear screen facing in when I take my eye from the viewfinder the viewfinder goes off and the screen stays off. The viewfinder comes back on if my eye gets close again. Hope this helps.

                  Thanks for testing that Dave. That is great - it's as it works now. After battling the Mk1 switching to the monitor for review I was frightened they'd mess up the Mk2. I can upgrade without fear now!

                    Re: Firmware Update on Monday

                    Well em1 mkii and 300mm lens updated. Although I did have an oh s@#t moment. When I tried the camera and lens I couldn't get the 300mm lens to autofocus. I thought oh no I can see a trip to Olympus happening here. Anyway after removing and reattaching, things seem to be working OK.

                        That must be an interesting lens! But there is an update for the 12-100 f4 lens.

                          Anyone hazard a guess as to what improved noise reduction in sequential shooting with IS turned on means?

                            I wondered if it was referring to mechanical rather than digital noise.

                            It still didn't make much sense!

                              Having tried it now I can't see or hear any difference.
