Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

This is very good news indeed. I am very interested in the focus stacking as I recently bought a 60mm macro from one of our members on this forum. I have been reading up about focus stacking and having the facility built in to the camera will be a great feature.

I will not be sorry if the newer version of the E-M1 will not be available for some time as I am still learning new ways of using this most complex and ingenious camera and now of course some additional features are being added.

Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

Not good news for me, as I've just sold my EM1 and was planning to keep my 12-40 and 40-150 pro's in the hope that the mk2 might do what I need..
Might have to make a concerted effort to sell them now..!

Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

No mention of improvements in the focusing line of things, but it could be the elephant in the room which is improved but not talked about?

Maybe they feel that they have done all that they can with firmware, and to make further improvements will require hardware changes?

True. It's not a big problem but any increase in speed would be a benefit.

It is a very nice lens and I was happy to get it. I am going to try it with my ancient ringflash once the necessary step-up filters arrive.

Best wishes,

Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

We had a talk on focus stacking at Camera Club last week and I was considering doing the computer work involved -but now simply a firmware update! Olympus just gets better and better!!

,
is there a focus stack mode now?
have to admit I haven't taken much notice of updates but keep thinking I should add them and reset the camera now I know it better. Notice the 'know' which is not the same as 'understand' . I generally use it like a 1980s camera; just wish it had manual wind on so I don't use so much film ..... umm; memory

How many are thinking "whats manual wind on ?

Thanks for the link. Can you tell me how you were led to this link. It seems (at least from our end) that these sites are somewhat hidden from regular access unless someone else highlights it.

I can't find where you would have found the link.

Thanks, but I was trying to find where the link is on the Olympus pages. I finally found where they linked it on the Australian pages.

From here http://www.olympus.com.au/ I first clicked on the E-M1 image or link, then on Features & then on Versatile Shooting Modes. And in Focus Stacking section there is this link
OM-D E-M1 Ver. 4.0 changes insect photography forever -- see amazing photos and read Kazuo Unno's commentary finally taking me to the site you have linked to Utilising Focus Stacking and Focus Bracketing in Insect Photography.
