Updating panasonic firmware christian dating nonchristian
Several months ago I wrote a very detailed post on how I’ve been updating firmware for my Lumix cameras and lenses. I was going to take it down and replace it with this new updated information but I’ve decided to just add this to the top of the original post so comments can be retained. Drag the file from the opened folder to the device that either says Panasonic or mass storage to complete the transfer. “SDXC cards, 32GB or larger, require special card readers. The current update process is not easy, and I’ve explained this to the Panasonic folks more than once.
The new information below is based on support from Robert Kozlarek of Panasonic US. Make sure the camera’s battery is completely charged. Download the latest firmware update for your model by clicking on the “Download Ver. X ” link to a location on your computer (we recommend the “Desktop”). If your computer has a media reader, please insert your formatted SD Card from your camera. Open the zipped firmware file that you downloaded to the desktop. For “PC” users, locate your SD Card by clicking on, or opening the “My Computer” or “Computer” on your desktop or your “Start” menu. If you choose to leave the SD Card in your camera, connect the camera to the PC with the USB cable. Depending on your PC, and the age of its operating system, you may not be able to directly write to such large cards. I’m hoping by bringing this to our readers, and by getting more input we can hopefully convince them they desperately need to update the ease of use on their firmware website. Secondly, you need to get to the Main Support Page to start all camera and lens firmware updates.
This was the first step however so you should have this done. Next, navigate to the folder you put the file in, most likely the downloads folder and copy that file on to the SD card.It tells you to Download but we’re already past this part.So the above explains how you get the file to your computer and in a place you know where to find it, preferably the Downloads folder. But the email below is pretty typical of many folks I’ve heard from. I should tell you, your work and explanations of the Panasonic cameras helped nudge me away from full frame (after 45 years); it was time for something new (video) while continuing to enjoy stills. Had this been the only email I’ve ever received on the pain Lumix users feel when firmware updates are released, I wouldn’t even be writing this post.
