Version 1.3 firmware update for the Olympus E-300 announced - A new firmware update (version 1.3) is now available for the E-300 which offers several enhancements
- Enhanced exposure metering stability: To provide even more precise readings and give photographers more control over their compositions, the stability of Digital ESP and Centre-Weighted-Average metering has been improved.
- Button Timer: Photographers can now set the time period for how long a modified setting remains active until it reverts to the basic setting of the mode currently in use. This customised interval setting option lets users tailor the camera better to their specific requirements.
- Two new underwater scene programmes: Together with the PT-E01 underwater case and ports for the Olympus E-300, plus the wide range of accessories, photographers can now fully explore beneath the water’s surface. Two new scene programmes, Underwater Macro and Underwater Wide, have been specifically created for underwater photography.
- Changed start-up process for future lenses: Looking to the future, the start-up process has been changed to support interchangeable lenses that will be released as the E-System range continues to grow.
To download the update simply open your Olympus Master software, connect your camera via USB to the computer and log onto the internet. Choose the Update Camera function from the Online Service menu and the update will be initiated immediately.
