Re: G9 Firmware Update

I have a G9 that has not been updated - purchased recently. I see that this camera has four updates,, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 2.1. I went to the Panasonic site and only one update is listed. Is it accumulative and the newest version includes all four?


Firmware updates are not 'patches' that add functionality though extra code, each update is a complete copy of the firmware. All functionality available is contained in the one firmware file, and erases the previous version.

This means 2.1 provides all functionality of 2.1 without any need for previous versions to have been installed.

If a function of a previous version is not continued in a new version then installing the new version will eliminate that function.  This very rarely happens.  Generally each new release builds on what was provided in previous versions.

Everything you get comes from the one firmware release file.
