Hey guys wondering if any of you have any additional info on the rumored E-M1 and E-M1X v3.0 firmware update this June 2021.

Definitely hoping for some video enhancements….

Wanted:

- 10-bit
- 4k/60
- C-AF focusing in 120/1080
- Sharpening controls in Om-Log 400
- Om-Log instead of Om-Log 400
- Improved AF
- Improved wobbles when shooting wide… like the 12mm f2.0 lens

The last bullet point, I actually detailed in my E-M1x centric YouTube Channel here:

Has anyone noticed that EM1x is on the getolympus site, but there is no longer a price and no ‘buy now’ option.
No change to the other bodies.
Wonder if something is up, or if it just some webpage error?

So I been looking everyday for any news on the firmware update. And nothing.
Looks like it’s not happening or something.

Well, there was an update mid-July mostly for video time codes though. http://dl01.olympus-imaging.com/ww/ud2/ENU/0001/1340/index22a.html

Sort of disappointed they seem to have abandoned it over the E-M1 Mark III though which seems to be better at face recognition and lock-ons. Plus, the E-M1 III also has the "Starry Sky" feature for dark focusing absent in the E-M1X.

More of the face recognition comparison popped up on DPR here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/65352412

Guess their flagship has sailed.... :(

The EM1 II and EM5 III got firmware updates adding focus stacking for the 8-25 f4 Pro. However, OMDS did not state that this was added for the July 19th EM1X and EM1 III firmware updates. Wot???

I'm hoping a v3.0 update for the X is still coming that has a lot more to it.
