How to update Q-S1 Firmware?

Hello,

I've bought the Pentax Q-S1 for my partner as a x-mas gift. I'm currently trying to update the firmware.

It shipped with firmware 1.00 and lens firmware 1.00

I've gone here and followed the instruction but my camera will not recognise the .bin files I've left in the root of the SD card.

Does anyone have any experience with this camera and updating its firmware?

There are currently no firmware updates for the Q-S1. What you downloaded was firmware for the original Q Sounds like it would have worked otherwise, though.

Thanks Adam, I thought maybe that firmware update was for the Q family as they seem to be fairly similar.

How about the lens firmware? should that work?

Yes, if that lens update corresponds to the lens you have.
