    I need to download the Codec for my OMD EM5 - on the Olympus site the only option seems to go back to 2009 so is probably NOT relevant to my camera since it didn't exist back then.
    Any ideas where I could find this?

    I believe the EM5 uses the H.264 codec and saves files in a QuickTime .mov format. If that not already on your computer installing quicktime would work - or better still you could just download the combined community codec pack, which will contain everything you need to play pretty much anything: http://www.cccp-project.net/

    If by "codec" you mean the ability to view raw files in Windows, then the old 2009 codec works fine. I think it just displays the embedded jpg.
