    Olympus Camera Updater has now been updated to version 1.21 so it is a good idea to have it updated to be ready for the E-M1 & E-M5 II updates that will be coming later this month. Oly America says late November & some have info to say it is on 25th November for those camera's updates. I was notified of the Updater update through Olympus Viewer 3.

    Following your advice, I just downloaded the updater from Olympus America, and also from Olympus Europe. Both downloads are version 1.2.0.1, not 1.2.1. Did you by chance, miss a zero?

    There are two bits of software, with different version numbers.
    1. What you can download is the installer/updater for the camera updater. The version is 1.2.0.1.
    2. When you run it, it sees if it wants to update the camera updater. When I do this it says mine is already up to date.
    My camera updater is 1.2.0.0

    I don't know why my installer/updater 1.2.0.1 can't see version 1.2.1 of the camera updater.

    The solution is to do what Ross advised and run Olympus Viewer, and select Update/Update software. It finds camera updater 1.21.

    So this is El Capitan OS X compatible?

    Yes it is.

    I just installed the new version via the update function in Olympus Viewer (couldn't find the new version on the Olympus site either). When I opened it after the restart it requires, it said 1.2.1. I connected my E-M1 and the Updater told me I had the current firmware versions. When I tried the previous version 1.2 a couple of days ago, it couldn't connect to the camera at all. I'm running El Capitan 10.11.1.

    The whole process of updating the Camera Updater took about as much time as the restart.

    I updated trough Viewer 3->Software update, as suggested by Ross, and indeed it updated the Updater to version 1.2.1 (and Viewer to 1.5).

    Thanks, Moshe
