A new firmware version for the Olympus E-300 SLR camera

12 December 2005 - A firmware update is now available for the Olympus E-500 digital SLR. Changes to the previous version include the addition of a three-step adjustable button timer, a white balance off option and a security mode to protect against the unintentional erasing of both JPG and RAW versions of the one image.

Dedicated to ensuring users enjoy the best possible photography experience, Olympus now releases firmware version 1.1 for the Olympus E-500 digital SLR.

Improvements over the previous firmware include:

Button timer: As well as the current three and five seconds, photographers can now increase the time interval between when a button is pressed and when the camera reverts back to the current mode, to eight seconds. This provides for more time to make necessary adjustment in difficult situations and lets enables better customisation for personal preferences.

Enhanced one-touch WB functions:In addition to one-touch WB, test picture, my mode and preview - customers can now select a WB OFF mode. By choosing this function, the WB button is disabled in order to avoid any unintentional activation.

Security step: When erasing both RAW and JPG files of one image, a new security step has been added. The camera will display a warning message to alert users that both images will be deleted. This additional step ensures data will not be lost unintentionally.
