You just download the latest version of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera utility from BMD's support section on their website. Connect the camera via USB to your machine and then run the utility. If the camera requires a firmware update the utility will prompt you to do it. It's quite painless.

Yes, you can download past versions of the camera firmware from the Support Page on the Blackmagic Design website. Just make sure you tick "Include Legacy".

If you want to roll-back from 1.3 to 1.2.1 for example, just uninstall 1.3 on your Mac/PC, install 1.2.1, then run the Blackmagic Cinema Camera Utility. As Aaron said - there are instructions in the camera's manual if you get stuck.
