    I see Canon is up to 1.1.
    I've not experienced problems so I don't have a compelling reason to
    upgrade. Can someone give me one?

    When I bought my kit last November, the camera came with 1.0.5. I immediately
    upgraded to the current version (1.1.0) and did the same to all the bundled
    software. I simply prefer to be up-to-date with such things.
    Compelling? No.

    In your case, the only situation that I can think of that would require you to
    upgrade would be if seeking official, technical support. It's a good bet
    that, before helping you with ANYTHING, they would insist that you upgrade to
    the current version.

    If it works, don't fix it!

    For similar reasons that one buys smoke detectors for a house that
    hasn't burned to the ground yet.

    My general feelings too. And having recently encountered a power failure
    during a BIOS update on a PC, I am a bit gunshy.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    I have searched for the fixes from 1.0.2->the ill fated 1.0.4 but have
    failed to find them. 1.0.4->1.0.5 merely fixed the issues brought on by
    1.0.4. The fixes from 1.0.5->1.1.0 I can find and they do not compel me
    to upgrade. Do you know where to locate that list of fixes to 1.0.2? I
    may yet change my mind.
    Thanks,
    Jim

    I can't help you about what 1.04 fixes but updating the camera is very
    safe, so long as (1) you charge up your battery beforehand and (2) do
    not turn the power off until it's done. You copy the firmware from the
    PC to a CF Card using a reader so power failture would have zero effect.
