Canon and Olympus release new firmware updates

Canon releases firmware update version 1.0.9 for the EOS Rebel T2i / 550D digital SLR. This new version fixes a phenomenon in which tone jumps become noticeable in some images, depending on the shooting scene, when shooting with the Auto Lighting Optimizer settings (Low / Standard / Strong).
Olympus has also released the first firmware update for the μ TOUGH-6020 and 8010. Firmware update version 1.1 should improve the start-up speed of these cameras...

In case you missed or did not apply the previous Canon Rebel T2i / 550D update, you will get this improvement too:

[Version 1.08]

• Fixes a phenomenon in which the set aperture moves unexpectedly when shooting movies in manual exposure mode using some Canon lenses (such as macro lenses).

Supplemental Information: This phenomenon involves the aperture of the lens moving unexpectedly when the focusing ring moves (during focusing). Please note that aperture values also change when operating the zoom ring of a zoom lens that has variable maximum aperture values; however, this is a normal operation because the camera controls aperture values properly depending on the focal length (zoom position).
