Olympus E-3 Digital SLR CameraVersion 1.2 has incorporated the following upgrade:

  • Improved the consistency of the auto white balance.

Those who haven't previously installed version 1.1 will also gain the following improvements:

  • Enabled use of the Image Stabilisation function with non-Four Thirds System interchangeable lenses by inputting a specific focal length.
  • Matched rotation of the dial on the rear of the Power Battery Holder HLD-4 and the movement direction of the AF target.
  • Increased number of storable still pictures by improving the battery check when the Power Battery Holder HLD-4 is attached.
  • Focusing now stops immediately when the AF start button (AEL/AFL or Fn button) is released.
  • Correction of the phenomenon where the flash control caused an under exposure while using bounce flash at short distances with the FL-50R or FL-36R Electronic Flash.
  • Improved selection and prioritisation of the central five ranging points when shooting in C-AF mode and Dynamic-single Target mode.
