OM D E M1  Product 000 068
Olympus has announced a firmware update for the OM-D E-M1 which eliminates a problem with the shutter close/open cycle causing vibrations at certain shutter speeds. 

Firmware version 1.3 brings the following updates:
  • Dynamic range has been expanded when using the external mic. The sound level adjustment has been changed to adjust to 21 levels in accordance with this.
  • A function to turn the Volume Limiter on and off was added. When it is on, it automatically limits the mic input volume if sound input volume exceeds the designated level.
  • A 0 second setting has been added to Anti-Shock mode.
  • The camera operation when the Frame Rate of live view is [High] have been improved.
The problem occurred with shutter speeds of around 1/60-1/250 sec, and meant that image blurring could occur because of the way the mechanical shutter works in MFT cameras.

The new 0 second setting allows the first shutter curtain to be switched from mechanical to electric, reducing blur caused by shutter impact. 

For more information and to download the new firmware, take a look at the Olympus website
