- Firmware version 184.108.40.206.00 is for updating Cinema EOS C300 Mark II cameras running firmware version 220.127.116.11.00 - 18.104.22.168.00. If your camera's firmware is already version 22.214.171.124.00, it is not necessary to update the firmware. Once the camera is updated to the latest version, it cannot be restored to a previous version.
- Please note that after updating the camera to Firmware Version 126.96.36.199.00 or later, if you wish to continue using CFast (VPG130) cards that were used before the firmware update, you will need to format the CFast cards with the camera. After the firmware update, and before formatting the CFast cards with the camera, make sure to back up the clips saved to the CFast cards.
- You cannot perform the firmware update using CFast 2.0 cards. Please use an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card that is 512MB or greater to perform the firmware update. After the firmware update has been performed, the camera's menu and custom picture settings will be reset. It is recommended that, prior to starting the firmware update operations, 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. 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 unit's Instruction Manual titled "Saving and Loading Camera Settings."
