Olympus OM-D E-M1 now in Silver with Firmware 2.0 that adds Tethered Shooting Capabilities

Mon September 15, 2014

Today, Olympus announced that the OM-D E-M1 will also be available in Silver. It also announced a Firmware ver. 2.0 that adds four features to the E-M1 to allow professional workflow using the OLYMPUS Capture studio tethering application, Keystone Compensation (Digital Shift) to correct converging lines of trapezoidal distortion in Live View, Live Composite to preview long exposures in Live View (e.g. shooting star trails while checking the results in Live View), and two new Vintage and Partial Color art filters.

OLYMPUS Capture
Camera settings can be adjusted on the computer and effects can be confirmed in Live View on the computer monitor. Settings that can be adjusted on the computer include Exposure Compensation, Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO, WB, Focus mode, Metering , RC Flash settings. Shooting mode must be selected on the camera itself.

OLYMPUS Capture

Keystone Compensation (Digital Shift)
Digital Shift allows you to simulate the use of a shift lens to avoid converging verticals when you tilt the camera up to include the top of a tall building in your composition. On the E-M1, the two top dials are used for trapezoidal compensation and the UP, DOWN, LEFT and RIGHT buttons of the Selector is used to set the crop location.

Live Composite
This function should rejoice the heart of all those who tried to shoot star trails at night and came up frustrated. Live Composite, as its name implies, does two things: 1) shoots 1200 images of the scene and merges them into one, and 2) it allows you to do that while checking the results in Live View.

Vintage and Partial Color Art Filters
Vinr=tage Art Filter effect produces a vintage look, as in a burned print, complete with light leak effect, scratched print and discoloration. Partial Color Art Filter provides 3 different color variations. You can select to keep only one color or a variable number of colors besides the selected color, all at a simple turn of the Main Dial and utilizing an intuitive color ring of 18 available color hues on the screen.

Availability and Price
The silver E-M1 will be available in September 2014:

  • E-M1 Silver and Updated f/w Body $1,399.99 Avail in September 2014
