Hello.

I have a C740 camera bought in 2003. Its firmware version is v754u-79. For using Camera Controller I need firmware v754u-83 or newer.I've seen that pictbridge firmware downloadable from Olympus is version v754u-85 (http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/...pdate_asia.cfm), but it disables SDK mode.

Does somebody know how can I update my firmware version to v754u-83 or newer without disabling SDK mode?

Thank you very much.

There is a forum that specializes in this type of question at:
http://www.pinetreecomputing.com/camctl_comments.asp
There is also quite a bit of information available on the site:

In http://www.pinetreecomputing.com/camctl_cameralist.aspit's said thatminimum firmware is v754u-83 for C740. In forums I've foud that you have to send the camera to technical service to upgrade firmware to a SDK compatible firmware.

Looks like they just got the firmware for the C-750 about a month ago. Maybe they will provide it for the C-740 as well, in the future. I'd keep an eye on that forum, and join these Yahoo groups to keep up on the latest news:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Olympus-C730-c740-c750/
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Oly_C-700/
Pinetreecomputing announced it on the Yahoo groups and made it available to them as soon as it came out.
Best of luck,
NB

I've found the installer for C-750 new firmware with SDK support in www.pinetreecomputing.com, but it's impossible to find an update for C-740

I've been searching for this too. Hopefully something will turn up soon. I refuse to send the cam to Olympus just for a firmware update, especially considering what they charge. Someone out there has to have the file, right?

I agree with you. I don't want to pay for a bugfix firmware release, it should be free. We should speak to MAC (http://www.pinetreecomputing.comforum moderator) to ask olympus a firmware for c740, as they did with c750.

Bye.
