This firmware update resolves the following issues that may occur in firmware version 2.0:
- When recording movies using the OLYMPUS Capture version 1.1, the Touch AF display on the OLYMPUS Capture cannot be cancelled.
- When an electronic zoom lens is in use, the zoom does not automatically adjust to the wide-angle position even if the monitor is tilted to the self-portrait position.

Firmware update version 2.0
In addition to many of the updates in Version 4.0 for E-M1, including Focus Bracketing and S-OVF, Version 2.0 firmware upgrade for E-M5 Mark II further enhances the camera’s ability to capture crisp, clear video with no need for additional editing software. Movie-Exclusive Picture Mode Flat provides for post-production color grading by lowering the contrast to minimize blown-out highlights and loss of detail in shadows. Additionally, new 4K Time Lapse Movie captures up to 999 images automatically and combines them in-camera into a stunning 4K file.
Tethered Shooting Gets Easier
Advanced Olympus Capture Version 1.1 makes tethered shooting in-studio even easier for both still images and video by allowing the user to customize the camera’s display and layout for quick and easy access to the most frequently used functions. Direct PC makes image transfer four times faster by saving images directly to a computer without having to record to an SD card. Features like Keystone Compensation can be utilized from a computer as well by simply connecting the computer and camera body.
More Advancements for the OM-D System
The latest firmware for the M.ZUIKO PRO and PREMIUM lenses will also be released and will include aperture drive, which has been improved for smooth exposure control even when shooting movies with sudden changes in brightness. The update also gives the shooter the convenience of disabling the MF Clutch and Snapshot Focus even at the MF Clutch position.
Finally, the new Version 2.6 update for the OI.Share app for Android® and Apple® is available now and enables Live Comp to be viewed in real time. Now users can make adjustments to their settings and monitor the progress of the image as it develops right on their smartphone or tablet.
The Olympus Version 2.0 for OM-D E-M5 Mark II and Olympus Capture Version 1.1 will be available in late November 2015.
