OLYMPUS Digital Camera Updater




[ Downloading and Applying the Firmware ]

Caution:
  • Do not disconnect the camera from the computer until the LCD on the camera displays OK.
    The firmware update is not complete until the camera displays OK.
    Disconnecting the camera before the firmware completes may render the camera inoperable.


  • A camera's firmware cannot be returned to an earlier version once it has been updated.

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.

To update the firmware of your camera, follow the instructions below:

  1. Double-click the downloaded OLYMPUS Digital Camera Updater.



  2. Read the terms, and then connect your digital camera to your computer using the bundled USB cable.
    If the camera does not automatically power on, turn on the camera.




    Note:

      Your camera may display a selection menu on the LCD. By default, the USB Connection mode for transferring images to the camera will already be selected.
      (Depending on the model, this may be either STORAGE or PC. If you do not know which mode to use, refer to the camera's instruction manual.)
      Press the camera's [OK] button to continue.

      The LCD will display "One Moment." The connection is completed when the prompt disappears from the LCD.


  3. The selection menu for the Digital Camera Updater is displayed when the camera is connected to the computer. Click Update Firmware to proceed.



    Note:

      The Save Settings / Mysets and Load Settings / Mysets in the selection menu are available on the following camera (as of November 2016) :

      • E-M1 Mark II



  4. The updater checks via Internet if newer firmware versions are available.
    Click Next to proceed.




  5. If newer firmware versions are available, they will be displayed in a dialog box.
    To see what will be changed by applying an update, select it from the list and click Details.
    To apply a selected firmware update, click Update and then, on the next screen, Yes.
    (If you click No, the update will be canceled.)




    Note:

    • If the latest firmware version is already applied, you will see the following message: "You are already using the latest firmware. There is no need to update."

    • Add Display Language is displayed if the connected camera can add an alternative display language via Internet. If you click Add Display Language, you can add a display language for the camera (or you can exchange the already added language for any one of the other languages available).


  6. Carefully read the Software License Agreement. If you accept the terms, click Agree to proceed.




  7. The firmware is transferred from the computer to your camera, and then the update starts in your camera.
    The firmware update is completed when the digital camera's LCD displays OK.
    After you see the camera's LCD displays OK, click Next.

    Caution:

      Do not disconnect the camera from the computer until the LCD on the camera displays OK.
      The firmware update is not complete until the camera displays OK.
      Disconnecting the camera before the firmware completes may render the camera inoperable.

Regarding the firmware update for E-M5

  • If the firmware of your E-M5 is version 1.0 - 1.2, you are required to update the camera twice.
