Olympus have released their brand new firmware 3.0 for the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. It’s a pretty major update with plenty of features taken from the flagship E-M1X.
One of the big additions is an update to the autofocus. New algorithms improves performance when tracking moving subjects and the ‘Active Use’ of PDAF improves performance when shooting video.
The camera is now also able to focus down to -6EV when using an f1.2 lens.
ISO performance has been improved with ISO100 (Low) being added to the camera. High ISO performance has also been improved by ?-stop.
Olympus have also added an anti flicker mode as well as a new ‘Detail Priority’ mode which reduces noise at low ISO’s in JPEGs.
Olympus have added OM-Log400 which gives you significantly more flexibility when colour grading your video. This helps to make the E-M1 Mark II a more capable video camera as well as stills.
Focus Stacking has also been added offering a choice of 3-15 shots and there’s now support for the new MC-20 teleConverter.
All of this helps to bring a lot of the features of the E-M1X to a smaller camera and brings the E-M1 II up to date with some of the latest features.
