COVID-19 Service Update

Is your camera running the latest firmware? 

Check you’re up to date with our handy guide.

Most cameras see their firmware updated a handful of times throughout the course of their lifetime, but unless you’ve bought a model very recently it’s possible that your camera is still running an older version.

We’ve rounded up the latest firmware versions for current and recently discontinued cameras from Canon, Nikon, Sony & Fujifilm so you can check yours is running the right one.

Just find the firmware option in your camera’s menu system and check that number against the one below for your camera.
