Default Firmware 1.1 for e-330 is out...

Haven't tried it, but Oly says it improves the live view B mode in 10x magnification, and now you can use the B mode underwater as long as you configure the dial or such thing (new config I guess).
Some other minor (language) fix...

So you all are of the opinion that anything new is good?

I no longer automatically install upgraded firmware.

Leave well-enough alone is my motto.

That is just sooo booring! Upgrades are great. It's what us mushrooms get fed with from the manufacturing gods.

Seriously, I've yet to find a firmware update that wasn't worth applying (maybe this is the exception - we shall see...).

Ah - never crossed the great divide into Nikon territory (though I've always lusted after a late model F5 - which I guess never suffered the firmware issues).

Actually, the last firmware upgrade I did was to the Canon 5D. Supposedly it improved brightness on the LCD, but I still find it quite poor compared to the E-1 or E-330 when viewed in bright daylight. So maybe that firmware upgrade was not worth applying...

Ack, sorry... haven't even paid attention to this! I usually upgrade asap.

I am going to upgrade right now.

Default THUMBS UP!

Live mode B 10x preview before had a lot of "ghosting" and now it feels much snapier, more "realtime" even without a tripod and in lower light.

Nice.

Good news. Not applied it yet, but was planning on doing some macro shots tonight so will make for a good 'before and after' test.
