Thank you for letting me know! I was looking at this web site for the latest firmware, where it still showed the most current was 3.4. When I connected the camera using Olympus Workspace, I found version 3.5 available.There is new firmware 3.5 for E-M1 II at least, just for focus bracketing with 8-25mm F4.
Good news! Focus stacking is now supported on E-M1.3 and 8-25!EM5 III firmware was also updated for 8-25 f4 Pro. Focus stacking enabled. EM1 III and EM1X not yet. There have been rumors of a big firmware update for these two, so maybe OMDS is waiting for that? Gotta be soon, because the lens is already out in the wild.
Well, whaddaya know? New firmware for EM1 III and EM1X is out. See here for details.
Eh? No focus bracketing for 8-25 f4 on EM1X or EM1 III? I suspect another firmware update is coming soon. Why didn't they include it?
- Corrected the following problems that occurred when connecting to an external recorder with Monitor or Record output mode:
- * The external recorder does not start recording when pressing the camera's record button if REC Bit is On.
- * Time code is not transmitted to the external recorder if Time Code is On.
That makes sense, but why didn't they say it, as I would consider that vital information. :-OGood news! Focus stacking is now supported on E-M1.3 and 8-25!
It is there, they just forgot to put it in the firmware description.
I updated E-M1.3 and I can select focus stacking with 8-25.
