Performing a Camera Firmware Update

This document will provide a step by step procedure for performing an update to the firmware in a Phantom camera.

Document revision: 5.

Here are several recommendations from our technicians to ensure that you have a successful firmware upgrade:

  • You should never do a firmware upgrade when running on battery power. Ensure the camera is connected to AC power.
  • You should perform the upgrade using Phantom version 692 or PCC version 692 or higher. If you do not have version 692 or higher please contact Vision Research.
  • If for some reason the firmware upgrade fails, the camera will likely need to be returned to Vision Research for service.
  • For v710 cameras, if your camera’s firmware is 670 or less, the camera needs to be returned to have the camera calibrated along with the firmware upgrade. Please contact support@visionresearch.com to arrange for an RMA.
