  • Olympus Viewer 3

    Checking through Firmware updates I noticed that there was one for Viewer 3 (as well as Viewer2). I regularly use Viewer 2 but can't find any info on Viewer3.
    Does anyone know what differences there are between the two Viewers?

    That looks like a simple (but with RAW features) replacement program for the original Olympus Master 2. It obviously isn't available as a download program at this point but maybe it's coming with some new P&S cameras.

      Paul, I'm not sure that Shane is still at Olympus Australia or else he is on holidays, but it is far too quiet there with no official replies coming from anyone. Elaine has replied on twitter & made blog posts, but nothing in their forum.

      (For the benifit of others here, the above query was posted on the very small Oly Aus forum site too without any response).

        Yes Ross, this is by far a much more helpful forum.

          Found some additional information on Viewer 3 - seems it's a follow on from Viewer 2 with some extras for professionals, and now also caters for those just starting on the journey.

            Thanks for finding that Paul. It not only adds some useful timeline features from the previous Olympus Master but also includes the GPS features among other things too.

                Patience mate. Eventially. The update is already there, but it looks like the software will be a bit longer coming (for download).

                  Re: Olympus Viewer 3

                  Unless I simply haven't found it yet I feel Olympus have really missed a trick in not including the download of files from the Camera, via the WiFi capability of the FlashAir card

                  http://www.toshiba-components.com/Fl...atransfer.html

                  Imagine how good it would be to have the option to transfer the images directly to a Laptop running Viewer 3, rather than having to use a "browser" to suck the images from the camera.

                  Why-o-why didn't they do this. It would effectively be Wireless "tethered" shooting

                      Downloaded OV3Setup.exe without a problem, but installation freaked out after a few minutes with the message Installation operation failed (00001618).Any help would be gratefully received.

                        If it is only an installation failure & everything else is fine, I would suggest downloading it again incase the first download is corrupted & Save As in your own location (such as a folder for 'computer stuff') before running it.

                          I deleted my first download, Ross, and downloaded it again ---still wouldn't work. I then turned off Norton Firewall which sometimes has a habit of preventing set-up of a program---still no good!

                              I'm using Windows 7 Professional and have now downloaded it 3 times! I may try it on a Mac power machine I have and see what happens. If I can find the Oly online help email address, I'll try that.

                              Have you any heat to spare down under, Ross. We could do with some. They are forecasting at least another two weeks of freezing weather here. We've had the coldest Easter Sunday since records began.
