Support has ended for Olympus Camera SDK

Support and updates for Olympus Camera SDK ( all versions) is no longer available. Olympus Camera SDK no longer receive the following:

  • Assisted support
  • Support for Operating Systems later then Windows XP
  • Developer exchange forum
  • File download area for SDK Software, tools and samples

Unfortunately, Olympus is no longer supporting SDK for previous models and is not being updated for current camera products. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. Our decision to pull resources is based on many of the models that were supported being out of service life and incompatibility with newer operating systems.
At this time, Olympus has not announced plans for future products with SDK supported.
