- Firmware version is for updating Cinema EOS C200 cameras running firmware version - If your camera's firmware is already version, 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.

Preparations for the Firmware Update:
- You cannot perform the firmware update using CFast 2.0 cards. Please use a commercially available SD / SDHC / SDXC memory card that is 512MB or more for 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 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 unit's Instruction Manual titled "Saving and Loading Camera Settings".
- The downloaded folder contains the firmware (file name: VNC7.FIM / file size: 39,811,712 bytes), and instructions on the firmware update procedures (a PDF file in five languages: Japanese, English, French, Spanish and Simplified Chinese). Before starting the firmware update operations, please be sure to carefully confirm your understanding of these instructions.
