Camera model and firmware

Take MS-C2651-PM for example:

Step1: According to the table above, it matches with MS-C2XXX, so we should download MSFImage_10.5.0.110_896a6b5b first.


1) Suppose that the firmware version of this camera is XX.5.0.87 before upgrading, we can directly upgrade it according to 3.Upgrade Steps;

2) Suppose that the firmware version of this camera is XX.5.0.79, we should change the name of the firmware we downloaded. According to Table2, MS-C2651-PM belongs to model MS-C26XX and matches with 11.X.X.XX. So we need to change MSFImage_10.5.0.110-r11_2e653e10 into MSFImage_11.5.0.110-r11_2e653e10
