Anyone know when the new E-M1 firmware will be announced and what it entails? Saw some rumors on the 43 rumors site but wonder....
- new art filters,
- faster EVF refresh rate,
- you don’t lose magnify mode when you focus, same with peaking,
- art filters and peaking get BIG evf refresh rate update.
- Live Composite
One other interesting new feature that your source didn't tell you...
2 control dials will be used for this.
Forget about those Ks though.
What does that mean? You can browse the camera images already from any device with wifi.
It's cool. Haven't gotten to use it as much I would like to (learning how to be any good with jsut "normal" methods first), but here's an experiment I shot earlier this summer, Lightning Bugs in front of an abandoned cabin close to here.

I wish I had gotten around to doing better, more quality scenes before they stopped coming around for this summer. I was more just experimenting with the cool new feature--kicking myself for not scouting out better locations.
According to one trusted source the E-M1 firmware upgrade will also add the new “Keystoning” feature:
“Keystoning will allow you to fix the distortion you see in architectural images. So buildings won’t “lean”…but the cool thing is you fix it in LIVE VIEW! You can see it as you fix it! Who needs a tilt shift lens? Olympus innovation is incredible.”
I guess only of interest to JPEG shooters. Personally I could do without these gimmicks, but if it helps them sell more cameras, why not.
