Olympus OM-D E-M1 Firmware Version 2.2 is Available Now



Olympus is known to be prompt with their firmware update, especially for their flagship OM-D line of cameras.  Sadly, we have not seen much upgrade to video capabilities yet.

Hopefully, we will get in soon enough.  I'd really like to see 120p or even 60p frame rate with higher bit rate.

For now check out the details of the 2.2 version which is simply a bug fix.
