    1. Corrects a phenomenon where captured images may tend to appear somewhat magenta depending on the shooting scene.If the background has little or no contrast (such as the sky or white walls), and the white balance (WB) setting of the camera is not AWB (Auto White Balance), images may tend to appear somewhat magenta.
    2. Fixes incorrect indications on the Arabic, Romanian, Spanish, and Ukrainian menu screens.

    Just out of curiosity...

    If I skip this one, will the next firmware upgrade include this and still work? Or will I need to find and install this one to make the next one work?

    From my experience, you can skip it. However, it's not recommended. We developers are known to include some "unofficial" changes we don't want anybody even know about while we have a chance to take care of the potential issues quietly... mwink.gif

    Arg! I just spent most of the summer shooting with this problem, and thought it was something to do with the polarization filter. Grrr.....

    Jeff provided the link in the first post of this thread.

    First check your version to see if you need to update. Use the directions on that linked page and read step number (3-2) to check your current firmware version. If you are at less than version 1.0.7 then you may wish to update.

    Make absolutely certain that your battery is completely charged before attempting to update the firmware. Then just follow all of the directions on the page "carefully. You may wish to print them out, just in case.
