Center Valley, Pa. --
released Wednesday a version 1.2 firmware update for the XZ-1 camera.
The update adds picture horizontal/vertical picture orientation to the camera menu, enabling it to record which way the image was oriented when captured, so in playback, the orientation of an image can be rotated by using the control ring.
The desired orientation is then saved in the Exif portion of the image file. The function is user selectable.
To download and install the update, XZ-1 owners should launch the Olympus [ib] software and connect the camera via USB cable to an internet connected computer.
Then choose the update function from the Camera menu in the software for the update to be applied.
