Changes from Previous Versions
Changes from Firmware Version 1.2 to 1.3
  • • Fixed an issue that resulted in Points of Interest (POI) for Hong Kong, Macao, and Taiwan not displaying correctly.
Changes from Firmware Version 1.1 to 1.2
  • • An effort was made to fix an issue that prevented the shutter being released using the optional ML-L3 remote control when a person or object was immediately behind the camera. You should nevertheless select Off for EVF auto toggle in the camera Set up menu when using the ML-L3.
  • • Fixed a bug that caused the shutter to be released only once if the optional ML-L3 remote control was operated during movie recording, after which movie recording could not be ended using the movie-record button.
Changes from Firmware Version 1.0 to 1.1
  • • Addressed the following issues, which in rare circumstances would occur when the eye sensor was used to switch between the monitor and electronic viewfinder displays:
    • - Images would not display or be saved correctly
    • - The camera would freeze or stop working

Updating the Camera Firmware
  1. Create a folder on the computer hard disk and name it as desired.
  2. Download F-P900-V14W.exe to the folder created in Step 1.
  3. Run F-P900-V14W.exe to extract the firmware to a sub-folder in the new folder. The resulting file and folder hierarchy is shown below:
    P900Update
    - firmware (the sub-folder containing the firmware)
     - firmware.bin (the camera firmware, located in the “firmware” folder)
     - gpsfirm.bin (the firmware for the GPS module, located in the “firmware” folder)
  4. Using a card slot or card reader, copy the “firmware” folder to a memory card that has been formatted in the camera.
  5. After confirming that the memory card write-protect (“lock”) switch is in the “write” (unlocked) position, insert the memory card into the camera and turn the camera on.
  6. Select Firmware version in the Set up menu and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the firmware update.
  7. When a message is displayed stating that the update is complete, turn the camera off and then on again. The firmware update for the GPS module will then begin automatically (if the camera starts normally, the GPS module update is already complete).
  8. When a message is displayed stating that the second update is complete, turn the camera off and remove the memory card. Note that the second update will take longer than the first.
  9. Confirm that the firmware had been updated to the new version. If the current firmware is not version 1.4, repeat the update from Step 1.

Note: We recommend that you back up images stored in the camera’s internal memory before updating the firmware. See the camera manual for information on copying images from internal memory to a memory card.

Note: For more detailed instructions or information on the equipment needed to complete the update, download the following pdf file:
