   Dear All,
I hope the post is in the proper place. More then year ago i bought my camera from a shop where it cost me cheaper. Later i understand why. Camera is alright but probably smugled since on the box is written only for Japanese market(and i'm in UAE). This does not bother me much since camera works fine but there is small thing i would like to fix. The only avaiable languages are English and japanese. Is there a way to change the firmware or downgrade it??? I try official canon link, manage to download the firmware by putting wrong camera number but when executing the update it says its not required(since my camera have RAw...). So please let me know if there is some way to override this.
    Thanks in advance and please dont hesitate to ask if you require some aditional info (fw version or so).

Canon typically only issues firmware changes to fix bad bugs.  Unless they have issued such a file for your camera there is probably no chance you will be able to modify the firmware on your camera.

  Yes i'm aware about this policy of Canon, but the hope is still there that downgrade can be done. Thanks aniway.
