1.  Firmware is the camera’s internal software that provides all
your camera’s features.
2.  A firmware update may be released by Panasonic to add or
improve  a  camera  feature  or  to  improve  compatibility  with
new computer operating systems.
3.  The firmware update procedure checks the existing version in
your camera to be sure the file you are installing is newer. If
the file you have downloaded is the same, the update will not
take place. This is normal and does not indicate any problem
4.  Never  download  or  attempt  to  install  any  firmware  from
another website. New firmware can be downloaded from the
section of the website.
5.  The file downloaded from the website may be compressed
into a .EXE or .ZIP file which will need to be extracted prior to
loading it to the memory card. The extracted file will use the
.BIN file extension.
6.  Windows users can open the .EXE file by double-clicking on
the file. This file has a built-in extractor that will put the .BIN
file on your desktop. Files using the .ZIP file will need to be
unzipped by a program that is designed to unzip files such as
WinZIP or WinRAR.
7.  The firmware file is also available in .ZIP format for customers
using Apple and Mac computers. The file needs to be unzipped
using a program like Stuffit. The .EXE file format can also be
used if a dual boot system is available.
Formatting the card will erase
its contents.
Firmware will not install unless
the battery is fully charged.
