    Just to clarify. The actual firmware update will only write to the camera if the code file has been successfully downloaded and validated by the update software. The main danger, and it's the same for all cameras (and other devices that can be firmware updated) no matter where the downloaded firmware update is temporarily stored, is a loss of power while the code is written to the camera, corrupting the camera's firmware memory.
