Default Oly's Reply About the Firmware Update.

Here is the reply I got back from Olympus, regarding the recent Firmware update release. Decide for yourselves how to interpret it!

Cheers,

Pepe.

We value you as an Olympus customer and appreciate the opportunity to assist you with this situation.

Digital cameras and printers produced by Olympus are thoroughly tested for full functionality and adjusted to provide accurate photographic reproduction. Updated Olympus firmware versions offer little or no functionality changes; they are typically due to changes in electronic components during camera production.

In the event when the camera or printer firmware provides a problem fix, Olympus will implement the firmware update under the manufacturers warranty.

If the camera or printer are fully functional, but the customer still wants to have the firmware upgraded, Olympus will perform the update for a fixed price of $30.

For current firmware updates and pricing please check Olympus web site at http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_se..._downloads.asp

Olympus typically does not provide firmware updates for the consumer self-installation. In order to update firmware, products have to be sent to the Olympus service facilities. There is a risk of serious damage to the camera or printer if the firmware update is not performed correctly.

The upgrade procedure requires special hardware and software and must be performed by trained personnel. Full instructions for sending the camera to Olympus for service can be found at the Service and Repair web pages at http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_se...vicerepair.asp



Regards,


Digital Technical Support

I've updated my C-750 firmware, and looking at the version numbers, the only thing being added was the pictbridge support.... which to me is more useful then the Camera Control support.. great for some sort of studio work, but practically useless for everyday use..

In fact I've just used the Pictbridge, We've recently been blessed with a little darling daughter, and everyone wanted pictures, when we took her to see all the relatives, I took the camera and my Canon i865 with me, and an Xd card full of baby pics, they just selected which one they wanted, and I printed it out on the Canon there and then, without needing to cart my PC with me!!! to say they where impressed!!!

I on the other hand cannot see why anyone would have any interest in PictBridge. A laptop is smaller than a printer.

Well those printers are pretty small, but I would not want to be limited to the absurd editting and tiny LCD available on a camera. Give me a laptop and Photoshop Elements 2. Then you'll be able to fix red-eye and do other enhancements on a nice big screen.

Anyone tried taking a pisture of a latest version US$bill with the latest firmware?

Only half joking. PSP and PS are now stopping you from processing these. So are some scanners.
