    Does anyone know where there might be instructions for updating the OM-D E-M5 firmware using the SD card as a transfer medium? I can't find my USB cable (it is apparently different from all my other USB cables - this makes #5 USB types), and while it is not urgent, I would like to take advantage of the udpated firmware.

    Thanks,

    Belay that question. I found the cable and did the update. I am now at camera v. 1.5 (and it did take two cycles to get from 1.2 to 1.5).

    FWIW, you can't do this with Olympus cameras. All updates must be done through their software using the USB cable. It's a common point of complaint.
