Where can I find the documentation for my camera?

This camera is packaged with a printed Quick Start Guide that describes basic operations. Full manuals in several languages are stored as separate files in the camera’s internal memory. To access the full manual, connect the camera to a computer using the USB cable bundled with the camera and then follow the instructions below for your operating system:

  • Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7: The first time the camera is connected to a PC running any of these operating systems, the device’s “auto-run” program (device stage on Windows 7) starts automatically. Click the [ib] icon to start the initial set-up/installation program. If the program does not start automatically, open the folder that represents the removable media drive (using Windows Explorer, My Computer, etc.), then double-click the Setup.exe file to start the program.

    During initialization, you will be prompted to select a display language. After you have done so, a copy of the manual in the selected language will be transferred to the computer. To view the manual, click on Windows’ Start menu and then click -- in order -- Programs, OLYMPUS Camera and the name of the manual.
  • Macintosh OS X: When the camera is connected to the computer, an icon named NO NAME will appear on the desktop. Double-click on the icon, and then, in the Manual folder, double-click the book in your preferred language. (For U.S. English, choose ENU.pdf.)If you are not sure which file to choose, open the Readme.pdf file to view a list of all manuals mapped to their filenames.

Replacement manuals are available online from OlympusAmerica.com. An electronic copy of the manual can be freely downloaded as an Adobe® Portable Document Format (PDF) file, and a paper copy can be purchased for a nominal fee, which covers the cost of printing and shipping the book. Click here to select your camera model and view its available manuals.

Note: Adobe Reader® software is required to view and print PDF files. If this program is not already installed on your computer, you can download the latest version for free directly from Adobe's Web site by clicking here.

Is the Instruction Manual available in a language other than English?

This camera ships with product documentation in many languages. The manuals are stored in separate files in the camera's internal memory. To access the manuals, connect the camera to a computer using the USB cable bundled with the camera and then follow the instructions below for your operating system:

  • Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7: If the [ib] software launches automatically when the camera is connected to the computer, close the [ib] software. Open a file-browsing application such as Windows Explorer or My Computer. Locate the folder that represents the camera (It will appear as a removable media drive.), and open it. Inside, click the Manuals folder. The manuals are stored here as Adobe PDF files.
  • Macintosh OS X: When the camera is connected to the computer, an icon named NO NAME will appear on the desktop. Double-click on the icon, and then, in the Manual folder, double-click the book(s) in your preferred language(s).

You can transfer the manual(s) of your choice to your computer using standard techniques such as copy/paste or drag and drop. If you are not sure which file(s) to choose, open the Readme.pdf file to view a list of all manuals mapped to their filenames. (For U.S. English, choose ENU.pdf.)

If the camera's internal memory is erased (e.g. by using the FORMAT function), Windows users who have installed the [ib] software can find replacement manuals in a backup folder on their computers. The backup folder contains a subfolder with a randomized name, and inside that folder is the Manuals folder, which holds the PDFs of the manuals.

  • Windows XP: The backup folder is stored at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\OLYMPUS\ib\CameraBackup.
  • Windows Vista and Windows 7: The backup folder is stored at C:\ProgramData\Olympus\ib\CameraBackup.

Mac users, or Windows users who formatted the camera's internal memory before running the setup/installation program, can obtain replacement manuals in selected languages from OlympusAmerica.com. Electronic copies can be freely downloaded, and paper copies can be purchased for a nominal fee, which covers the cost of printing and shipping the book. Click here to select your camera model and view its available manuals.

Note: Adobe Reader® software is required to view and print PDF files. If this program is not already installed on your computer, you can download the latest version for free directly from Adobe's Web site by clicking here.

I am a Mac user. What software can I use to view my images and movies on my computer?

The [ib] software bundled with this camera is not compatible with Macintosh operating systems. Mac users who wish to transfer their images and movies to a Mac for viewing, editing and sharing have two options:

  1. Download and install OLYMPUS Master 2 from Olympus' Web site. This imaging software is compatible with Mac OS X 10.3 and later, and it provides many of the same functions as [ib]. To download the software, click here. Double-click the downloaded file to begin installation, and then follow the on-screen prompts.
  2. Connect the camera to the computer using the camera's bundled USB cable, and then manually transfer your files to the computer using standard copy/paste or drag and drop techniques. Once the files are on your computer, you can use any third-party application of your choice to view, edit and share them.

Olympus maintains this Tips and Tricks page to help you learn how to use the OLYMPUS Master 2 software. Additional information can be found in the application's Help file.
