Updating firmware to know
To start with, place the SD card into your SD card reader attached to your computer.If yo didn’t do the first thing I mentioned at the very top of this post, now is a good time to do it.Putting this on an SD card is actually a superior procedure to a direct download to the camera from the Internet, which is the way Olympus does it.
