(FT4) There may be a new E-M1 firmware update to fix “mysets” delete bug.

Share

The warning message has now been added ont he E-M1 firmware update page.

Our reader Enrico noticed one bug coming along the new E-M1 firmware update:

The recently released firmware version 2.0 for the Olympus E-M1 resets almost all current settings and deletes all Mysets (stored sets of settings) upon installation. Basically, the camera is back to factory defaults but still remembers the current image number and current date and time. Even things like the photographer’s name in the copyright field in metadata are gone.
This happened to me when updating from version 1.4. Aside from this, the update was uneventful and I have noticed no negative side effects of the new firmware.
Better write down all non-default settings in your Mysets before updating.

And an anonymous source just told me that Olympus will fix this with the next E-M1 firmware update.

Terada interview: Says Fast Aperture Prime lenses are in the works!

The spectacular f/1.0 MFT lens patent from Olympus (article here).

Pen And Tell interviewed Mr Terada from Olympus. Here are the translated key info:

– Olympus will keep the three lines of OMD cameras
– release cycle between cameras will become longer
– Olympus recognize the need of very fast aperture lenses
– 4K will not come on the E-m1. But maybe on future cameras (on previous Pen And Tell post)

Sounds all goot to me! Can’t wait to see that patented 12 or 14mm f/1.0 lens :)

4K or not 4K: Here is the E-M1 image with 4K :)

Of course when you do a rumor work like I do you get plenty of critics if a rumor doesn’t become true. Well, in the case of the 4K firmware update rumor for the E-m1 I really went through many absurd troubles!!!
First of all I assure you that I didn’t make up a story. And it’s time for me to prove it to you. On top you can see one of the two pictures I got showing a beta-tester with the 4K recording feature enabled. Of course you can argue this could be a fake image. If it is is…it’s certainly a well done one!

But it doesn’t stop here: Iron Man 2 Assistant Director Nabil Fathi even openly said he saw and tested the 4K feature on the E-M1 (his tweets can be found here).

So you see this is a pretty weird story! Make up your own mind..I am done with this :)
