Does the screen still just tilt or is it fully articulating now Ed?

Re: EM-1 firmaware 1.1 out

So many of us now have no fingernails - it was so much easier with the canon, download to card, insert card and there it was - done

With the Olympus procedure I'm always convinced there will be a power outage half way through

Re: EM-1 firmaware 1.1 out

You have a screen? Now I know mine was a Friday afternoon build.

Sorry must be sensible I am taking the camera into the garden to take some repeat shots to see if I can spot any differences.

Re: EM-1 firmaware 1.1 out

I use so many different lenses on mine and have had no lockups that I've no idea whether it is any different - at least it still appears usable!

Re: EM-1 firmaware 1.1 out

I updated mine last night as well with 12mm on, no update for 12mm (still shows 1.0) yet there was for the 45mm & 75mm that now both show lens firmware as 1.1 same as the camera.

It took ages to download the new firmware to the laptop (Mac with good Internet connection) and the camera screen is unnerving but all seems to be on board.

Just wish as others have said there was an easier way, download to card and then install from card!!

I intend to try the camera over the weekend and see if I notice any changes in AF.

Re: EM-1 firmaware 1.1 out

I think the Camera Updater comes as part of Olympus Viewer 3 which ships with the E-M1. The latest version was already installed on my Mac when I checked last night. Installing it from the disc should be quicker than downloading it from the website.

I installed 1.1 last night without any problems, although it is definitely very unnerving. I checked the instructions carefully at each stage a couple of times before proceeding. I also used a wired connection as my wi-fi connection has been a bit 'iffy' lately.

Re: EM-1 firmaware 1.1 out

Not the first time I've used the Olympus updater, but this time around felt especially nervous after all the strains of E-M1 purchase. The little wheel started to spin ... and span ... and span some more. My nerve cracked, I couldn't take any more spin. So went off to make a cup of soup. When I came back (cock-a-leekie in case you were wondering), a lovely bright OK on the LCD screen. And all settings (including mysets) intact. When's the next one? Might need to stock up on soup.

I updated my E-M1 and 12-50 at the same time - no problem.

Re: EM-1 firmaware 1.1 out

Took much longer than the suggested few minutes, even on my 8GB i5 laptop, so I went for a relaxing shower... When I returned the EM-1 screen said "OK" and it was.

Just upgraded to Windoze 8.1 too, and that seems to be working as required...

I think tonight's curry will be just fine.

Win 8.1 is what finally drove me to an iMac, but that's another story ....

Hi Ozzie.
It might be the olympus server is being overloaded, hence you unable to connect.
Give a while and try again
Hope this helps
