    Version 2 of 'Olympus Viewer 3' was released in the wake of the Pen F announcement.

    In theory it's a 'major release', but the revision list looks more like any of the point-releases:

    • - Support for the latest cameras
    • - Support for the processing of High Res Shot raw file.
      (Need a 64bit-OS for the processing of High Res Shot raw file)
    • - System Requirements have changed.
      (Windows XP is no longer supported)

    Did anyone update yet? Did you notice any other improvements (like faster processing?) Or run into new problems/bugs?

    cheers,
    Tilman

    I'm curious as to whether the new Pen effects (B&W grain, color film emulations, etc.) can be applied to any ORF file.

    OK, I just updated (to 2.0); I'm not seeing new film or grain filters:
    upload_2016-1-28_15-19-38.

    Here's the Art Filter dropdown:

    upload_2016-1-28_15-19-14.

    Picture Mode:
    upload_2016-1-28_15-20-22.

    Gradation:

    I upgraded as well. Seems a little faster than version 1.5. Stable so far. As Barry said, no sign of the new effects. Maybe they want us to buy the Pen F :wink:

    Has anyone posted .ORF files from the Pen F for download? If I could try one of them, maybe the new filters will show up?

    Still no El Capitan support for Macs. Guess I'm not updating my OS any time soon :confused:

    If you read robin Wongs review on the Pen F, he mentions that the new version is as slow as the previous one.

    Had a bit of time and decided to just give it a go and find out.
    I agree, it feels a little faster. (it's still sluggish compared to Lightroom or C1 - but hey :) )

    One thing I'm not sure if I remember correctly:
    Did the older versions process the entire image when you were in 100% view? Or just the cropped area visible on the screen?
    (v2 calculates the whole image, so if you're panning around it doesn't need to recalculate)

    I didn't see the new effects after upgrading either. ACR is way faster than Olympus Viewer 3. I only keep it on my Mac just in case I want to apply art filters to my raws!

    I am using it with El Capitan in my MacBook Pro Retina 13" with no issues at all...

    Runs on 10.11.4 Beta just fine. But I have no need for Viewer because I use LR and plugins for my PP workflow.

    This update finally gives a convenient+official way of defishing hires photos (e.g. EM5II + 8mm PRO). However, even on a high end Mac Pro the processing is slow. Capture One will remain my choice for most image processing.

    Good to know it has defishing function, but would it defish Samyang 7.5mm fish files taken with EM10?
    Thanks.

    Someone else will have to confirm because I only have the Olympus lens. Olympus Viewer does not let you select the defish option for (say) a jpeg with no metadata. My guess is that you will only be able to defish officially supported fisheyes where the full metadata is included.

    You can only partially defish the Samyang 7.5 FE by using Distortion Correction set to 'Manual' and moving the slider to -100. That's the limit to OV3's capabilities with non-Olympus lenses.

    Turns out DPR is providing RAW/ORF samples, at History Repeating: Olympus PEN-F First Impressions Review

    I still can't find the new filters.

    The extra features in OV3 are only seen & applicable for PEN-F raw files & the following is a screen shot in the process of using a Monochrome Profile.

    Thanks, I missed it when I tried a sample image.
    I agree it's definitely not there with an E-M1 ORF file. Unfortunate.

    FWIW, Photivo (free) has film emulations (including grain).

    Did someone try to alter exif value from a non PEN-F ORF to make it looks like a PEN-F ORF and succeeded in cheating OV3 to make it think it's a PEN-F ORF so that monochrome profiles could be applied ?
    If this works, it would allow us to apply monochrome profiles on non PEN-F images.
    I tried to clone all metadata from a PEN-F ORF to an E-M5 ORF but without success...
