How to Update Your OKIOCAM S! (Windows)

Meet the New Button Functions on OKIOCAM S

After updating your OKIOCAM S’s firmware:

  • You will not need to install any drivers for the buttons to work.
  • All buttons will work in all third-party video recording and video conferencing apps.

We’ve released a firmware update for OKIOCAM S, giving you access to brand new button functions. You’ll now be able to adjust the exposure and flip your OKIOCAM’s image in OKIOCAM apps and third-party apps (Zoom and Google Meet, for example) using only the buttons on the camera.

We’ve listened to your feedback. Having several of the buttons only work in OKIOCAM apps was something that quite a few users weren’t satisfied with. After updating your OKIOCAM, all the buttons will work in both OKIOCAM and third-party apps.

Note: The OKIOCAM S Firmware Update app is compatible with Windows and macOS only.

New OKIOCAM S Features

  • Exposure buttons. Precisely fine-tune the level of exposure (brightness) using the white triangular and circular buttons.
  • Flip button. Press the blue button to rotate your OKIOCAM’s image 180 degrees.

Note: Once you have updated the firmware of your OKIOCAM S, you’ll be unable to customize the functionality of the buttons within OKIOCAM apps. However, we believe that the new button functions are very useful and intuitive, and all users will enjoy them.
