Olympus has released the fifth model in its OM-D camera series, the Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II system camera, which combines some of the key features from the OM-D E-M1 and E-M5 Mark II. If for whatever reason you are having issues editing E-M10 Mark II 60p MOV footage in Pinnacle Studio, we would recommend transcoding the footage to an intermediate format prior, such as DV AVI format, which Pinnacle will recognize and handle well.
To get access to file conversion, third party converter software is required.
