They made it easy. All you had to do to get to the update was to press a BIG RED button. Did so. Was slightly disappointed that the ABOVE instructions weren’t there! They are included in the ZIP file you download. Hence, why I published them here. I did a quick Google and got the gist of what I needed to do.
I had skipped v1.2. I had never done a firmware update on a Canon. Knew I would have to bit the bullet some day. So, decided to give it a try.
I knew I would need a formatted SD card and a fully-charged battery. Got that taken care of.
The process was very straightforward, smooth and quick.
I was all done in less than 10-minutes. No problems. Worked, to my relief, first time.
The new firmware does not appear to have clobbered the camera. That is good news too. So, so far, so good.
