Based on Firmware 1.0

Olympus has just announced Firmware 4.0 upgrade for late November. So why does Olympus still peddle this DVD based on Firmware 1.0? When I tried to track the video with my E-M1 in hand, I thought there must be something wrong with my camera. So I called Olympus and a tech person told me that my camera's Firmware 3.0 had nothing to do with the DVD model's firmware.

So why does Olympus continue to sell this DVD? I can't make any money for Olympus. But it certainly does anger brand-loyal consumers who feel they've be fleeced by purchasing not just an out of date product but a way out of date product -- and one that the seller Olympus knows is way out of date. Olympus's webpage is so hard to navigate, perhaps Olympus just doesn't know this relic is still there for sale.

I got this hoping to get some practical advice to use the camera but all it does is go through the menus. Useless! I want to know the best ways to set up the camera for various purposes as a semipro photographer moving from a Canon 5D III. Shame on Oly for releasing this kind of a product.

Hate is generally a very strong term (for me); however, it apltly fits when a mutinational orgaization sells you for things that should surely be included in the product package. In addition, the DVD is not worth it becasue it is not catergorized by functions, which makes navigation inefficient and a waste of time. In addition, these products are often available online from other retailers at a lower price or even free sometimes. This is almost the first and last time I am purchasing an Olympus product.

It should have been included with the purchase of the E-M1 or a free download. Not really worth the cost of the DVD. Speed of presentation too fast and not much different from the more detail instruction manual.

With such an amazing array of products, why would Olympus hire a guy to "read the manual" to me? Nothing motivational or interesting on this DVD at all.

Impressed as I am with their products, I am very disappointed with the design of their website and promotional material. Olympus marketing needs a major overhaul with fresh insight into the desires and needs of potential buyers as well as assurances of current customers.

OK but not great

Defines the use of the menu items for set up. However, what I need is a program that really answers the key questions and that helps me to set up the camera for best use.

Great for those of us who don't like to read user manual

Don't buy this if you expect it to make you a better photographer. It does a great job of explaining the menus for this camera, which I do also own. As a pro Nikon photographer, I can make any number of adjustments without looking at the camera. With the Oly OM-D E-M1, I'm lost. I need to learn how to walk again if I want to use this camera to it's maximum potential. This video helped my do just that. The printed user's manual is too brief and painful to read. Watching this video was a pleasure and is really fit the need to learn about this camera. The audio has a few issues once in a while, but it's really fine if you don't plan on eating popcorn while watching it with your family. Don't force your family to watch this video with you! This was a good purchse for me to learn about the menus and details about my OM-DE-M1. I'm completely satisfied with my purchase and have no regrets. I would buy it again in hindsight. Good luck!

Completely Worthless

I also had assumed that this DVD would offer some more insight than the manual. In fact, it's even LESS useful than the already bordering manual. In every topic covered here, the person is simply reading what the manual has to say. He offers ZERO insight beyond that, such as 'why' you might choose to put a setting a certain way.

And they skip over entire sections of the manual, that aren't even mentioned here!

This was a complete waste of money, and Olympus really should offer everyone who bought it their money back and an apology.

For novice users who don't like to read the manual (and who can blame them?) this DVD is something that could have been packaged with the camera. But it is a dry recitation of the basic functionality of the camera that never rises above the level of showing the location of control buttons and menu settings. I had been hoping for a bit of insight into why one might make various settings, but the video never addresses the reasoning behind the controls. I wouldn't advise spending the money. In the end, one is just going to have to change some settings, take some pictures, see what happens, change some more settings...

Not worth at all. Very disappointed . Just wonder why Olympus would sell this video. Totally waste your time.
