Note:
Firmware Version 2.1.8.1.00 is only for EOS C300 cameras which have Firmware Version 2.1.2.1.00 - 2.1.7.1.00 with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF Feature Upgrade applied.
If your camera's firmware is already version 2.1.8.1.00, it is not necessary to update the firmware. Once the camera is updated to the latest firmware version, it cannot be restored to a previous version.

If the EOS C300 camera does not have Dual Pixel CMOS AF Feature Upgrade applied, please download Firmware Version 1.1.8.1.00.


Preparations for a firmware update:
After the Firmware update has been performed, the camera's menu settings 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 camera's user manual titled Saving and Loading Camera Settings.
Once you load the setting data to the camera with the new firmware, you cannot write the data back to the camera with a previous version firmware.

The downloaded firmware folder contains the firmware (File Name: VKL7.FIM, File Size: 35,066,960 bytes) and a procedure manual for updating the firmware (a PDF file in five languages: Japanese, English, French, Spanish and Simplified Chinese). Please check the firmware update procedure manual carefully before starting update operations.


The following items are required to perform this firmware update:
1. A Cinema EOS C300 (with the Dual Pixel CMOS AF Feature Upgrade applied) camera body
2. A computer (OS: Mac OS X)
OS Requirements: Mac OS X (10.7-10.11)
3. A 64 MB or higher-capacity SD/SDHC memory card (both commercially available)
4. An SD card reader (commercially available) or an SD card slot built into the computer
5. A fully charged battery pack for the camera
6. Compact power adapter bundled with the camera
7. The firmware (the downloaded file)
