OLYMPUS Digital Camera Updater


How to check the updating status :

The Digital Camera Updater, a software application used to update the firmware of the AIR A01, is also used to update the firmware of other OLYMPUS digital cameras.

During the firmware update, the Digital Camera Updater screen shows an instruction to check the updating status on the LCD monitor of your camera. Because AIR A01 is designed without the LCD monitor, check the updating status by the LED illuminator.




[ Downloading and Applying the Firmware ]

Prepairing to Update the Firmware :
  • Log on to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.
  • Connect the computer to the Internet. Olympus recommends using a hard-wired connection, if available, to limit the risk of service interruption during the firmware update. A wireless connection may also be used.
  • Make sure the AIR A01 has sufficient power to complete the operation.
  • Remove the memory card from the AIR A01.

Caution :
  • The firmware cannot be returned to an earlier version once it has been updated.
