Has anyone tried the G3 firmware update [ver 1.0.2.0]? Were there any problems?

My G3 is a candidate for the update. I discovered this after checking serial numbers and submitting it to Canon on the download web page.

Patches and updates are not always as reliable as one would wish so I was wondering if anyone else had updated their firmware or had any comments.

Thanks 2Hog

I updated mine when the firmware was first released and the process went without a hitch. Your camera should simply turn off automatically after the update so don't be alarmed if it doesn't power up as indicated by the instructions.

I did the update, too, without a hitch.

Make sure your battery is full, cuz' if not, and you lose power, your camera will get seriously screwed up, and will have to go to Canon for fixing.


Also, make sure you don;t touch a thing on your camera while uploading.

I may be nuts, but I did notice somewhat faster focusing after the upgrade.

Good luck!

No problems here, just follow the instructions and you should be OK.

2Hog here. Thanks for the comments. I have the battery on charge now. That takes awhile. The instructions Canon posted are pretty complete and straight forward so I suspect things will go smoothly.

Thanks again 2Hog
