Olympus Digital Camera Updater 2.0/E-M1X Firmware 2.2 - Description

Changes:

- Corrected the following problems that occurred when connecting to an external recorder with Monitor or Record output mode:
a) The external recorder does not start recording when pressing the camera's record button if REC Bit is On.
b) Time code is not transmitted to the external recorder if Time Code is On.

Precautions when updating firmware

- Camera settings (including date and time) will be reset when you update the firmware of your camera to version 1.1.
- Camera menus are displayed in English after the update.
- It takes time to complete the update due to the large file size for the firmware.
- It takes about 5 minutes until the OK icon is displayed after the writing icon is displayed on the monitor of the camera.

Preparing to Update the Firmware:

- Log on to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.
- Connect the computer to the Internet. Olympus recommends using a hard-wired connection, if available, to limit the risk of service interruption during the firmware update. A wireless connection may also be used.
- Make sure the camera has sufficient power to complete the operation. Use freshly charged batteries or the optional AC adapter. (Adapter not available for all models.)
- Remove the memory card from the digital camera.

About Digital Camera Updates:

Updating to a newer firmware version than the one already installed on your camera can improve the device's overall performance and stability, resolve various issues, and add support for newly developed features or enhance existing ones.

On the other hand, downgrading the camera's firmware can recover its functionality in the unlikely event the currently installed version is faulty or the device's performance dropped after an upgrade. However, bear in mind that applying an earlier build might not always be possible.

It is recommended that changing the camera's firmware be performed when the new release resolves an issue that your device has been encountering, or adds a new feature (or enhances an existing one) that could prove useful for you.

This process isn't intended to be destructive, but still, it's best to save all your personal data and configurations before applying a different firmware. Moreover, make sure that the battery is fully charged and don't use the camera's buttons while the installation is in progress.

When it comes to the update method, usually, you must copy the firmware file onto a compatible memory card, insert it into the camera, and browse from the menu to the device's update section.

However, each device has various ways to enter the update mode and particular steps that should be taken for a successful upgrade, therefore make sure you read the product's installation guide.

That being said, if you consider that this firmware improves your device in any way, then hit the download button and get the desired version; if not, check with our website as often as possible so that you don't miss the update that will boost your camera's performance.

  It is highly recommended to always use the most recent driver version available.

Try to set a system restore point before installing a device driver. This will help if you installed an incorrect or mismatched driver. Problems can arise when your hardware device is too old or not supported any longer.
