Excerpt: On unpacking my Oly E-P5, I ignored the included USB (threw it into a drawer somewhere). I have many standard USBs and thought "just another" no big deal. Wrong, this is a proprietary USB that is unique to Oly cams. You will need it for downloading firmware updates. Don't loose it or you will have to pay $ + shipping to get a new one. Note to Oly: Next gen cam should use WiFi for firmware updates.
Excerpt: I lost my usb cable for the OMD EM-5 and needed to replace it for firmware uploads. I purchased this cable and, as you would expect, it works just fine as it is made by Olympus. You can't go wrong with this cable.
Excerpt: Lost my old cord and a replacement seems easy until you try the remaining 30 cords you have at home and none fit. More than a review in regards to product this is really about B&H customer service. Recently I have made two separate trips and the service and knowledge of the staff is amazing.If in need skip the rest save yourself the time and hassle and get what you are actually looking for..
Excerpt: This is the Olympus cable for about half the price. I've used it many times to transfer photos from my E-510 and it works fine. It's great to have a second one in addition to one with my desktop PC so I can keep one in my laptop case and not forget it when I travel.
