Re: New firmware for E-P5 (1.4) & Stylus 1 (1.1) cameras.

I have done a lot of updates too and been lucky so far. I think you will find that the latests firmware is installed automatically. My suspicion (from observation) is that there is no particular danger while the firmware is being downloaded. The critical time is when the firmware is actually being copied from the computer to the camera (this is indicated on the camera's display) -- that is when a power failure in the computer or a battery failure in the camera could be fatal. Just my speculation.
I did think that the 1.4 to 1.5 update in the E-P5 installed very quickly (as though it was only a partial update).
