How do you check the firmware on the EX1?

Hi,

I just purchased a second EX1 and wanted to see what firmware version it was running.

I looked all through the menus and couldn't find anything on it.

How do you view what firmware version the camera is running?

Thanks,

Jim

It's in the maintenance menu. Press and hold MENU and CANCEL on the rear of the camera, then press SEL/SET to access.

Strange. Since I got my EX-1 back from Sony Repair, the "Menu/Cancel/Sel-Set" does not display the Maintenance Menu. I'm sure they updated the firmware but I can't check it.

I just found that the procedure is: Press and hold the "CANCEL" "SEL/SET" and "MENU" buttons simultaneously.

How to hide the maintenance menu?

I recently sent my EX1 to the local Sony service center for the firmware upgrade. When I got it back I wanted to be sure they installed the latest one (1.11) so I pressed Menu_Sel/Set_cancel. Everything fine..

Now is there a way to hide the maintenance menu again.. since I donīt want one of the videographers I worke with messing with it?
