Re: Deleting Firmware Update

Is it alright to delete a firmware update from your SD card after you have it installed on your camera? I assume it is since I use different cards, but I don't want to take any chances so thought it best to be certain.

Thanks in advance!

..Recommend keeping an archive of all firmware updates (maybe on a backup external harddrive)..

..it's because if run into a situation where a newer firmware is not favourable, can reinstall the older firmware as a "rollback"..

..once a firmware has been successfully updated and completed, just format the memory card inside the camera..

..it's best to format the memory card in the camera (and not from the computer, unless somehow needs to troubleshoot the memory card for some reason)..

..hope this helps..

..thanks for sharing & happy shooting..

..Cheers..
