Adrianna Adrianna

Here you are able to download the latest firmware for the Paralenz Dive Camera.


Download firmware version 1.5.4 here 


Please follow Instructions below to install the firmware successfully:

  1. Download the latest firmware on your computer
  2. Copy the file firmware.bin (it cannot say firmware(1).bin etc.) onto a SD-card (Not in a folder) - make sure the SD card is empty and formatted! 
  3. Make sure the battery has at least 30% power left. Otherwise the firmware can be interrupted and the camera will require a revival (instruction). 
  4. Turn off the camera. Insert the SD-card into the slot
  5. Turn the camera on until you see the logo and wait for it to turn off automatically. (The camera is now downloading the new firmware).

If the camera does not start installing the firmware, please try inserting the SD-card after turning on the camera. If successful the camera should display "Updating" and will shut off after automatically when done. Otherwise please click the SD card in and out a few times until the update starts (might take around 10 tries). 

  1. Turn the camera on again and wait for it to turn off automatically (The camera is now installing the firmware).
  1. The camera is now ready with the newest firmware installed. The firmware.bin file will no longer be visible on the SD-card after the installation.
