In the old days, when a unit suffered some problem, the only solution was to say goodbye to him for a few weeks while passing through the service. Today however, thanks to the proliferation of the Internet, companies put at our disposal the tools that we ourselves can update the software that controls the functions of electronic products in order to refine potential problems identified after marketing, or in some cases, improve their performance by incorporating new features or expanding existing ones. These are the firmwares, each time a word that sounds more in our ears, and accompanying almost all devices that accumulate in our homes, from DVD players to game consoles going on, of course, with all the cameras digital.
Have your camera updated to the latest version only have advantages, but many times not to do so through ignorance or fear. If you’re willing to overcome both, read some general advice independent of model or brand of camera you have and then jump to the appropriate section:
-Make sure the camera is fully charged or connect through the adapter before you start.
Under no circumstances, disconnect or turn off the camera during the upgrade process.
-The update process usually takes between 20 and 40 seconds. If you see what happens the minute and the progress bar of the camera is frozen, cross your fingers and pray for a minute before turning it off and try again, hoping that nothing bad has happened.
-I updated the firmware for each device that has passed through my hands and I never had the best problem. If unfortunately you were not so lucky, do not worry and contact a service representative of your camera.
-Finally, the websites of different companies often contain instructions for updating the firmware for each model precisely. Unfortunately, in many cases, these instructions are in English (http://www.parasaber.com/formacion/aprender-ingles/) or are difficult to locate (hence the origin of this guide). If the language is not a problem, follow the instructions.
1. Download the latest version of firmware from Canon’s website and unpacks clicking on the file you downloaded.
2. Format the memory card from the camera.
3. Connect the camera to the computer via USB or using a card reader to copy the firmware file to the root directory of the card (go, no put it into any subfolder).

5. Press the MENU button and scroll down to the last option, “Firmware”. Enter by pressing SET and the two options that appear select OK (OK if you just shows is that you were wrong in any of the above steps, or you already have the latest version installed). It will show your firmware version and the version that is on the card, select “Yes” if everything is correct.
6. The start installing firmware. Do not turn off the camera or touch anything until it finishes. This done, turn it off and get even the battery.
7. Re-attach them, turn on the camera and confirm that all is well and has the advantage of the latest version.

2. Format the memory card from the camera.
3. Connect the camera to the computer via USB or using a card reader to copy the firmware file to the root directory of the card. If your camera uses two firmwares, copy only the first (copy never both at once).

5. Turn on the camera, press the MENU button and access the firmware section. Usually found in Settings> Firmware version.

10. Turn the camera back and confirms that all is well and has the advantage of the latest version.
Download the firmware from Sony’s website and follow the same steps described for Canon cameras. The only significant difference is that Sony often use multiple files for the update. Copy them all to the memory card and go.
Along with the software included with your camera you will find an application called OLYMPUS Master 2 / Studio 2 with which a breeze to upgrade. In addition, Olympus has two pages in perfect Castilian where they explain everything you need for the compact and SLR.
