Initialise back to factory settings prior to installing Firmware and you will not have any issues...

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...

Is this official advice from Sony?

What reasons do you have to believe that this will eliminate any potential issues with the update? I'd much rather not have to reset to factory settings.

It's a free world, you can take advice or leave it, it is mainly for folks that have issues with aborting or uploading FW...

It happens on Sony's, Oly's and Panny's at times, reinitializing to factory settings will usually do the trick...

What setting do you think the camera is at, at the factory when they test the firmware update?

Fair enough and thanks for the input. It doesn't sound like this is based on specific incidences for this camera at this time so much as a past track record.
