Firmware info

As in other Canon PS case, the ver.req file works as well in this model. vers.req does the same job plus it reports the number of shots. Number of shots are not available in GM1.00L. In order to access this information, to verify the firmware version for your camera, the *.req files need to be downloaded to your memory card before they will display the extended information. Otherwise, you only get the default Canon Firmware version. Press FUNCSET and DISP simultaneously (on 2010 May 02 purchased G11 this only works if camera is turned on via the playback button not the power button), it shows the following:
