[Note 1]
* When updating to this version, the FTP transfer feature and Wired LAN settings are initialised. You will have to configure the two items again.
The names of FTP server 1, FTP server 2, and FTP server 3 will be kept, but other items will be initialised.
If you have set Wired LAN Setting to Manual, each of the manually configured settings will be initialised and the Wired LAN Setting will reset to Auto.

* When the camera is updated from Ver. 3.00 to this version, the registered settings for Fn (function) menu may not be kept.
