Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

Hmm, I just tries (again) to download the updater, and it's dated 14/4/14, not 11/11/15. Where did you get the updater from please?

Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

If you open Olympus Viewer 3 and check for updates it should find it for you. Discussed in this thread:

Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

Well I found that, but even after loading the updater in there (and why isn't the latest version on the website?) it didn't work. Different error though <sigh>. I just love software! I'll probably delete it all and start again :-)

Are you checking for updates in OV3? Don't open Updater, just get whatever updates are available in OV3 & it should show you that Oly Updater 1.2.1 is available & let the update happen from there. I'm assuming OV3 will run in El Capitan? BTW, a camera can be updated with OV3 because Updater is an extension of it (as well as running standalone).

Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

Well Olympus kept their promise; V4.0 is out and it's here:
http://www.getolympus.com/upgrade

Unfortunately I've not got time to carry out the upgrade before work, something to look forward to though for later.

Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

Just had email from Oly confirming v4.0 is out.

Likewise, don't have time to do it before the weekend, but looking forward to it!

Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

All nice and simple...

EM-1 updated to V4.0
12-40 and 50-150 both updated
Both Panny lenses checked as well (I do like the fact you can do this through the Oly software and body!)

Re: EM-1 firmware update - November 2015

Is the updating process fairly foolproof?
As a new EM-1 user, I have never had to update my firmware before. I'm quite excited about the focus stacking/bracketing which I have been doing manually up till now.

Something to look forward to when I get home from work.

Yes it's quite easy. Use Olympus viewer, and check that the software is up to date first... (update tab) update software it may update the viewer and it will definitely update capture.

Then plug the camera in and update the firmware, NB the camera has several options and it's "storage" you need to select on the camera! (not the little logo showing the connection from the camera to the computer, that's for capture!)

Simply use the update tab again select camera, and it will list out the firmware updates available, body and maybe lens too. I changed through all four lenses and updated two as part of this update set.

Thanks Walti,

It was indeed totally painless, including the update to my Oly 60mm macro lens.
