Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

On my wildlife photo session today (WWT Llanelli) I changed my C1 setup from S-AF to C-AF. My thoughts were to keep focus, whilst wind rocked flowers and bugs, and hopefully to keep boids in focus as they moved.

No disappointed ..

Hi Dennis, hope to meet you there sometime. Alas, I am unable to do tomorrow, and I volunteer there on Wednesdays. Not to many boids around, but with the hot weather, insects and butterflies should abound...…….

My battery (ies) are good, and have no problems with them lasting the day/week sometime fortnights...……….

Look forward to seeing some of your results...…………...

PS GREAT website.....

I suppose I should count myself lucky that, although my MacBook Pro has been updated to Mojave, my big 27" iMac, on which I do most of my work while at home, is still running on High Sierra. My V3 firmware update worked beautifully and installed on the first attempt using Olympus Workspace Version 1.1.0.

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

I am running Mojave on my iMac and it worked for me, guess I was one of the lucky ones.

If it was that serious I would expect Olympus to flag the issue on their download website to stop people doing it. To allow it to continue and effectively brick peoples cameras is very poor cusomer service.

Sounds like more people had not yet learned to use Olympus Workspace to do the update. The ones that did, it worked.
Olympus should have made it clear that it is best for everyone, PC and Mac, to use Workspace.

No issues seen here... BUT, the potential bug I found appears to have been dirty contacts on the lens (BIG finger print in place) no issues since a reset and a clean!

I haven't bothered to download workspace and the stand alone updater worked fine.

Using the old updater works for some and not for others. Best to make sure you are using v2.2 of the updater - it shows the version number at bottom right when you run it.

Indeed - I always check the updater version first - just in case they’ve added something to the firmware that needs a new Updater!

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

A friend who does a lot of video and has a mix of Panasonic, Oly and Sony bodies, says for many uses the M1ii and X now are the very best option for their needs.

They do full VLOG, have excellent, smooth CA focusing, a fully articulated screen and image stabilisation (so you don't need a 'rig'). No other option apparently ticks all those boxes, including the Fuji XT-3, Sony A6400 or any Panasonic body.

Re: v3 Firmware for mk2 - updates for mk2, m1x and lenses

I'm another that successfully managed to update using Mojave, plus I don't have the workspace installed just the Olympus digital camera updater, and mine is only version 2.0, I didn't even realise that there was a newer version.

Why am I not offered any updates, does it not have an updater and you have to download new software from Olly? If it's the latter how're you supposed to know when there's and update?

The answer is simple. You are supposed to run the Olympus Workspace program. It updates all the software including itself and the updater, and it runs the camera updater too.

Why do people want to mess around with it all themselves when Olympus gives them something far simpler?
