All right, your camera is a piece of hardware of course and it comes with editing software that you install on your computer, but somewhere between hardware and software is firmware. Software that runs on the computer inside your hardware. The firmware in your camera is what controls all of the cameras functions and operations and occasionally Canon will update that firmware. Before I can find out if there's a newer version of the firmware, I need to know what my current version is and that's very easy to figure out I just hit the menu button and go over here to the third tools menu and the last item in the menu is simply a display of my firmware version.
This particular camera is running Firmware Version 1.0.0.To find out if there's a newer firmware version for your camera go to www.canonusa.com and click on Consumer & Home Office on the top toolbar then click on Cameras and then Digital SLR Cameras, click on EOS Rebel T3i 18 to 55 millimeter IS II Kit and then finally Drivers & Software. If there's a firmware update available, you'll see a Firmware section. From there you can download the Firmware and instructions for installing.
Insulation is a simple process, so don't be afraid to keep your camera's firmware up-to-date. In addition to fixing problems and possibly improving performance you might also occasionally get some entirely new features.
