Canon firmware updated for 5d MarkII & 1D MarkIII
Canon released new firmware updates... but hold on to your horses 'cause none of them is video related :(
That is due to be out in the Spring has you may be aware of.
We still have to wait a little bit longer for the new 1D MarkIV (no dates, yet, for the availability nor to when it will be available, although it has been already shown to the public).
I came across to the 1D MarkIV, beta models available here in Portugal, but no images were to be taken nor Canon Portugal would lend me it for some field tests, anyway it feels just like and ordinary 1D body with some tweaks here and there and with awesome screen... just hope it will not bring the focus problems anymore or Canon will be doomed.
Meanwhile this firmware updates seams to be related with the 800,00 euro WFT-E2/E2A and on the 5D MarkII also corrects a phenomenon in which visible noise may appear in images taken by continuous Bulb shooting.
You can get the direct download links clicking more to continue reading.
Here are direct the links (the 1D series need the camera serial number) for Win and Mac:
* 1Ds Mark III
* 1D Mark III
* 5D Mark II
The 5D MarkII also corrects a phenomenon in which visible noise may appear in images taken by continuous Bulb shooting.
You will also need to update your WFT-E2/E2A (if you have one):
