22.214.171.124.00 Firmware Update
Adding more functionality to the C100MK II, Canon has just announced a new firmware update. Improving performance, this new update has added more features to the cameras functionality when paired with certain lenses. These highlighted lens functions are now possible with this update.
Preparations for firmware update:
After the Firmware update has been performed, the camera’s menu settings and
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: VKI4.FIM, File Size: 42,532,896 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.
