Foscam firmware email 16 March 2013

Published March 16, 2013 by Sean

I recently bought a Foscam FI8910W – not a cheap copy, but the real thing. It seems to have an odd habit of rebooting and loosing the stored position, so I thought download the latest firmware and see if that helps. Now I find a very odd thing. Not only do I need to register by email to get access to the download (last time I had that nonsense was with Sony), but the only way to access the firmware was to opt in to SPAM. Fortunatly, with hotmail, once I am done with a pointless marketing game, I can mark as junk with a couple of clicks, and they are none forever from my conciousness. In this instance, a blog post helped the process.
Finally, I find I already have more recent firmware than what I signed up to receive…
We received your request for the latest Foscam firmware. Before we send you the download links we want to be certain we have your permission. Please note that by confirming you agree that, in addition to receiving firmware updates, you may from time to time receive emails regarding product updates and discount coupon codes.
Please click the link below to confirm and then we will send you the firmware by email. Thanks!--
This is what I got in reply. I’m archiving it here since I marked it as spam in hotmail.
Note: Before you upgrade, we’d like you to be aware of a few things before your proceed. There are usually two different firmware upgrades for each Foscam camera model. The reason for the existence of two different firmware is hardware related. If you load a newer camera firmware into your camera with older firmware, make sure that the first four numbers of the firmware version are exactly the same. If they are not, you will most likely experience some issues as certain firmware are designed for certain specific camera hardware. For example if your current firmware starts with 11.22, you must make sure that the firmware you are upgrading to also starts with 11.22. In order to determine which is the latest firmware, look at the last two digits – such last two digits should be greater than the last two digits on your current firmware.
