Exclamation Firmware updates - 2AM on Thursday 26th

Lots of chatter asking when and why they aren't available today

Only a few hours to go!

It took less than 8 minutes to download but first follow the instructions from here as you go & make sure you have a freshly charged battery, to be sure.



Then it goes through its two stage update. First the spinning dots as it is 'updating the firmware'



Then the transfer symbol on the camera & pc



And then final relief when you see this.

Re: Firmware updates - 2AM on Thursday 26th

I've updated my E-M1 & 60mm macro lens so far (well that's all I have except for Oly Capture to go). Now all I have to do now is put all my favourite settings back in.

Mine took around 5 minutes with no apparent problems. Now to spend the day resetting and understanding the camera!

Looking forward to it.

Re: Firmware updates - 2AM on Thursday 26th

I got an email to say it was available from Oly at 08:24 this morning. Got rugby on Saturday so will postpone upgrade until after that - I don't want to be grappling with a setting that has changed in the middle of a match in p***ing (or possibly pouring) rain.

Might want to re-think that John. Updated mine and first thing I tried was the S-OVF. I think it works and tried it a few time by switching between the two. To me there is a feel of OVF performance with the S-OVF setting. Tried CAF on a magpie that took off caught the frame in focus but that's only one test.

Thanks birdboy, I've just had to look in the new manual as I hadn't heard of S-OVF before. It looks interesting, but I'm going to stick to the plan as I won't have time between now and Saturday's game to explore everything properly. The last thing I want is to be faffing around on the touchline tying to reset something that I don't understand properly - all the more so since the forecast for the weekend is pretty grim!
