Firmware version 18.104.22.168.00 is for Cinema EOS C100 cameras running firmware version 22.214.171.124.00. If the camera's firmware is already version 126.96.36.199.00, it is not necessary to update the firmware. Once the camera is updated to the latest firmware version, it cannot be restored to a previous version. For details, please refer to the instruction manual (the updated version).
Preparations for a firmware update:
After the Firmware update has been performed, the camera's menu settings and Custom Picture settings will be reset. It is recommended that users save their menu and Custom Picture settings as settings data to an SD card, separate from the one that will be used to carry out the update, before starting update operations. This saved data can be loaded into the camera and the settings can be changed after the update has been completed. For further information on this, please refer to the section in the camera's user manual titled Saving and Loading Camera Settings.
The downloaded firmware folder contains the firmware (File Name: VKG4.FIM, File Size: 35,067,076 bytes) and a procedure manual for updating the firmware (a PDF file in five languages: Japanese, English, French, Spanish and Simplified Chinese). Please check the firmware update procedure manual carefully before starting update operations.
