Re: Oly update soft...

The following is an extract from dpreview.com but I couldn't find anything on the micros big brothers.


Olympus has announced a firmware update for all three of its PEN Series cameras (The E-P1, E-P2 and E-PL1). To be released on April 22, the latest updates promise faster auto focusing speeds and improvements when using the recently announced 9-18mm lens. There are also improvements and bug fixes for individual cameras. The company has also announced a stand-alone Digital Camera Update software application exclusively for camera and lens firmware updates.

Firmware details:

All PEN models (E-P1, E-P2 and E-PL1)

■Higher AF speed in still image taking (with all lenses)

Additional functions for E-P1 & E-P2

■Higher AF tracing capacity in C-AF of movie taking (M.ZUIKO 9-18mm & 14-150mm) to same level of the E-PL1

Additional functions for E-P2 and E-PL1 only

■When using the VF-2, you get the flexibility to display the MENU and played image on the LCD (instead of on the VF-2)
■Flexibility to display the REC-VIEW on the LCD (instead of on the VF-2)

Improvements with M.ZUIKO 9-18mm (all PEN models)

■Frame rate adjustment of the live view when used with the new M.ZUIKO 9-18mm
(without new firmware, the frame rate may be smaller on the live view)

Fix of minor technical issues

■Example : The E-P2 displays strange horizontal lines on the EVF when combined with no lens (or old manual lens) and "Grainy Film" setting.

Re: Oly update soft...

This was announced some while ago. It's a stand-alone application which I think is just a "cut out" from Master. You still need to be running this app on your computer and connect your camera to the computer at the same time.
