p.1 #1 · Oly OM-D Firmware 1.5 Downloaded but I have no idea what is in it


My OM-D only had firmware 1.0... . so I downloaded the Oly updater in order to download firmware 1.1 (1.2 was suspended I guess). However, the updater took me all the way to firmware 1.5 which got installed. So I have firmware 1.5 now but I have no idea what's in it, there is no indication on Olympus' own site. I am using a Mac. Does anyone know?

the humming sound of OM-D is gone!!!! Only comes back on when you half-press the shutter button!

It also adds IS with legacy glass during video, which is pretty big. There were some other major bug fixes and such with 1.1 and 1.2 as well.

Are there any changes with respect to the bracketing? Our om-d was shipped with 1.2.

Thanks for posting.
The humming sound is the one thing that annoys me about the OM-D

Well, Edgar Maguyon should be happy. For weeks, adding IS support for legacy lenses in video was all that he could talk about...now it's here, so we know Olympus has made one customer very, very happy today.

lol, I remember that guy. He must have been a video only user. I wonder if he still has the E-M5.

so the IS will work even with non-Oly/Panasonic lenses, via regular adapters?

I just updated mine, but it was a bit confusing.

For those who are trying to do it:
1) download the Updater software from Olympus (I just went through the 1.2 update link to get here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_downloads_updater_info.asp
2) load the software on your computer
3) connect your OMD to the computer with the provided USB cable, turn on the camera.
4) update the software: initially this will only go to firmware version 1.4
5) then update to the latest software: 1.5

Just tried it with my Contax 35-70 + adapter - worked great.

This is a very nice upgrade.

Stopping the hum implies less is operating, so perhaps less power consumption and better battery life Would be nice...

Using IS with a legacy Zoom is a bit of a pain.

How so?
Is it the focal length input that you're referring to?
For my Contax 35-70, I left it at 50mm and it seems to work well.
Much better than no IS.

I'm a bit surprised that this firmware update hasn't hit the various review sites, forums and blogs yet.
