Scary firmware update
Nov 25, 2012

I decided to do the 1.0.2 upgrade to 1.0.3 on my dp2m since white balance accuracy on the live view is important enough. I thought it was a piece of cake as the previous upgrade. Everything went well on a newly charged battery, and then the camera shut down automatically, it took about less than 5 minutes. I powered it up immediately, checked that the version says 1.0.3 and proceed to format the card just in case I accidentally hit the upgrade another time. The format took too long, I left it standing and 5 minutes later, the red light is still flickering. Had to pop out the battery to stop the runaway format and then restart the dp2m again, redo the format and this time it completed in less than 10 seconds..

Firmware update is always a scary thing.
