Google 'Olympus digital camera updater'......after you install it, you just connect your camera via usb and it automatically searches for any available updates (including the lens attached to the camera). Smile


Sorry.....you don't need to google...it's on the disc that came with the camera. Smile

Don't forget you have to update to v1.4 first, and then do it all over again to update to v1.5. Doesn't take long though - about 6 mins overall.

For some reason I had to completely disconnect the camera in-between the two updates before it would work, so don't be alarmed if you see an error message if you try and do it without disconnecting in between updates.

The first one gave me an error message, I altered the sleep time to its max and all was fine after that.

I haven`t checked it yet but I should imagine that it is just fine. I have the IS set to come on when I half press the shutter and I can now here it kicking in.

Anne just make sure you use a fresh battery in the camera body, even if there was a power cut the camera could not come to any harm.

Denny why did you order that many batteries, it only needs two at a time Smile

The FL36 flash is very slow at recharging, it would take a week to go through that many batteries Smile

How did you work that out, are you using the unit in manual mode with 100% power.

So this begs the question: how many do you keep, and what kind of back-up system do you use.
I get over 400 shots per battery.

I`d say that either Dennys flash is faulty or he`s using crap batteries.
