Olympus Delivers OM-D E-M1 Feature Update 4.0


Great news for OM-D E-M1 owners out there.  The much waited Feature Update 4.0 is available for download.

I believe this is one of the most significant update for this flagship camera.  Unfortunately, full 4K support has not made the list of improvements, but it's half way there with 4K Time Lapse Video option now.


What I'm more interested is Focus Stacking and Silent Shutter function.  From what I have read, focus stacking function can add amazing improvement to macro shots by making the entire subject to be in focus which I prefer in most macro shot situations.

Olympus has also published a special article covering Focus Stacking and Focus Bracketing feature, and how it can change your photography using real world examples.  You can read the article from the link - Utilising Focus Stacking and Focus Bracketing in Insect Photography

The photographer, Kazuo Unno used Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 60mm F2.8 Macro for the example shots that look quiet amazing.  This lens is on top of wanted lens list.  Considering the price point and the performance, this is the best macro lens for Olympus camera unless you want to spent a lot more or deal with manual focus.

As a side note: the Feature Update 4.0 is comprehensive update, meaning it includes all previous updates.  So you don't have to load previous update such as 3.0 or 3.1 if you have not done so.

The update is done through Olympus own Updater software which you can download here: OLYMPUS Digital Camera Updater.

For those of you who already updated your camera, please let us know what's your take.
