Does the new Olympus PEN E-P5 firmware reduce image shake?
A year on from the camera's announcement, Olympus has issued a significant firmware update for its PEN E-P5. The update not only adds a trigger-only 'cable release' mode to its Wi-Fi functions, it also provides a feature to combat the biggest problem with the camera. The '0 sec Anti-Shock' option provides a work-around for the image shake that held the E-P5 back.
We recently performed some testing to see what difference the changes make and the benefits that will be felt by existing owners. In our original review, we couldn't unreservedly recommend the E-P5 because of its inability to correct image shake at what should be usable shutter speeds. Is this new firmware enough to elevate the E-P5 to the select company of Gold award winners?
