Olympus announced a brand new firmware update for their OMD EM5 MK II and OMD EM1 cameras. The OMD EM1 is getting a new focus stacking feature
that is found on the new EM10 Mk II–the more entry level option in the OMD lineup of cameras. This feature will shoot up to eight images and then stitch them together into a JPEG; though the camera will still keep the RAWs on the SD card–which means that this is excellent for macro shooting. It’s also going to feature the new simulated optical viewfinder setting, advancements in the focus peaking and new movie functions.
Meanwhile, the new EM5 Mk II that was announced earlier this year is getting new video features, tethered shooting enhancements, and a 4K time lapse mode.
With these new movie enhancements comes flat color profiles for video shooting; and the company’s PRO lenses are getting a smooth aperture change update for shooting video.
The press release is after the jump if you’re interested in more, but the firmware updates are coming this November.
