Olympus just announced the planned release of the Version 4.0 firmware upgrade for the OM-D E-M1, which features Focus Stacking and Focus Bracketing, among other improvements. It is scheduled to become available for download in late November, along with the Version 2.0 firmware upgrade for the OM-D E-M5 Mark II which features enhanced OM-D Movie performance, and Ver. 1.1 of the Olympus Capture tethering software.
Olympus explains the Focus Bracketing feature that is included in the upcoming Ver. 4.0 firmware upgrade for Olympus OM-D E-M1 as follows:

This photo of a jewel beetle was taken with an OM-D E-M1, using the Focus Bracketing feature included in the upcoming Ver. 4.0 firmware upgrade, with the images edited in post production using software available on the market.
Normally, it would be impossible to get the insect in focus from front to back shooting at such a close distance, even at an aperture of f/22, thus requiring multiple shots at different focus distances edited together. The process of manually changing the focus little by little as you take multiple shots is extremely tedious and time consuming, but now you can leave that up to the Focus Bracketing feature and it will be done in an instant. It is a great feature for those of you who enjoy taking photos of flowers, insects, or other small subjects up close.
The E-M1 Ver. 4.0 firmware upgrade is scheduled to become available in late November.

At IFA2015, Panasonic Europe is showcasing the new LUMIX DMC-GH4R, an advanced version of the LUMIX DMC-GH4, as well as a comprehensive software update for all existing GH4 users.
Panasonic LUMIX GH4 V-Log L Function Firmware Upgrade Kit DMW-SFU1
V-Log L Video Capability
Log shooting enables wider dynamic range for colour grading in post-production. Taking full advantage of the LUMIX DMC-GH4R’s Four Thirds sensor, V-Log L boasts log characteristics with 12 stops, allowing videographers to capture the darkest scenes and avoid ‘bleaching out’ details in very bright environments.
The LUMIX DMC-GH4R is the ideal camera to support Panasonic Varicams used on TV and movie sets. This is due to the Varicam’s V-Log and the LUMIX DMC-GH4R V-Log L curve both being developed with similar characteristics to the Cineon curve, the industry standard for film digitalisation, resulting in being able to use the same LUT (Look Up Table) for reference.
V-Log is also available to existing LUMIX DMC-GH4 users, via a paid software upgrade. By purchasing the DMW-SFU1 Upgrade Software Key and updating the camera’s firmware to version 2.3, users of the original LUMIX DMC-GH4 can also enjoy the benefits of V-Log L functionality for a one off cost of £79 (Panasonic Europe).
“In response to the demand from the film production market, log video recording (V-Log L) is now available for the LUMIX GH4, and offers exceptional flexibility as well as wider dynamic range for color grading in post-production process. V-Log / V-Log L were developed to feature similar characteristics to Cineon, which is a characteristic curve for film digitalization. Taking full advantage of Four Thirds sensor, V-Log L boasts a log characteristic with 12 stops. Both V-Log and V-Log L have the same characteristic curve, and LUT (Look Up Table) can be utilized.” Image Courtesy of Panasonic

August 11, 2015
Updated：August 27, 2015
The new OS of Windows10 has been released from Microsoft. We have confirmed that images in a camera cannot be transferred to a Windows10 PC via a USB cable because the camera doesn’t recognize OS information of Windows10.
This symptom happens only when a PC is connected to a camera via a USB cable. So, there is no problem when you use a memory card slot in the PC or a card reader.
We will provide upgraded firmware for models with the symptom by posting the firmware on the Global website.
