Recommended Posts

Changes in this firmware:

Firmware Version 1.2.5 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

1. Fixed a rare phenomenon in which there were rare cases where movie files taken could not be opened when repeatedly shooting movies with specific CF cards.

2. Fixed a rare phenomenon in which there were cases where "Err 02" appeared when repeatedly shooting still images with specific CF cards.

3. Fixed a phenomenon that occurred when using high-capacity (32 GB or greater) CF cards: If either a CF card with only a little available space remaining or the battery was removed and then reinserted into the camera, and then the user attempted to start shooting movies immediately, shooting would stop.

4. Improved the writing/reading speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards.

5. Fixed a phenomenon that occurred when custom function C.Fn 4-1 was set to assign IS start to the AF stop button on the lens: When used with lenses that do not have an AF stop button, the IS function would not work.

6. Corrected some mistakes in the menu screens displayed in Arabic and Portuguese. (This applies to models in overseas markets. The models for the Japanese market do not display those languages.)

The Version 1.2.5 firmware being released this time is for cameras with firmware up to Version 1.2.4. If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.2.5, it is not necessary to update the firmware. Note that cameras with the Version 1.2.5 firmware (and also Versions 1.2.0 through 1.2.4) cannot be downgraded to a previous firmware version (such as Version 1.1.0 or earlier).

Q: What are the changes in Firmware Version 1.2.5?

A: The following improvements and fixes have been incorporated.

1. Fixed a phenomenon in which there were rare cases where movie files taken could not be opened when repeatedly shooting movies with specific CF cards.

2. Fixed a phenomenon in which there were cases where "Err 02" appeared when repeatedly shooting still images with specific CF cards.

3.

4. Improved the writing/reading speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards.

The reading/writing speeds are the same as those for UDMA 6 CF cards.

5. Fixed a phenomenon that occurred when custom function C.Fn 4-1 was set to assign IS start to the AF stop button on the lens: When used with lenses that do not have an AF stop button, the IS function would not work.

(Only for products that come with Arabic or Portuguese menus)

Supplemental information:

The five items described above in 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 were fixed or improved in Firmware Version 1.2.4 or later.

Q: Are the previous versions of firmware included in version 1.2.5?

A: Yes, the following improvements from the previous version are included:

(Previous) Version 1.2.3 improvements:

Firmware Version 1.2.3 includes the following improvement:

1. Fixes a phenomenon in which the settings of the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2 revert to the default settings when both the camera and the ST-E2 are set to auto power off.

2. Fixes a phenomenon in which the Macro Ring Lite (MR-14EX, MT24-EX) and slave flashes do not sync while shooting wirelessly.

(Previous) Version 1.2.2 improvements:

Firmware Version 1.2.2 includes the following improvement:

1. Fixes a phenomenon in which the set aperture moves unexpectedly when shooting movies in manual exposure mode using some Canon lenses (such as macro lenses).

Supplemental Information: This phenomenon involves the aperture of the lens moving unexpectedly when the focusing ring moves (during focusing). Please note that aperture values also change when operating the zoom ring of a zoom lens that has variable maximum aperture values; however, this is a normal operation because the camera controls aperture values properly depending on the focal length (zoom position).

2. Fixes the AF point-selection behavior of the C.Fn III-7 (Manual AF pt. selec. pattern) custom function when set to [1].

Fixes a phenomenon in which the AF point-selection does not scroll through the available AF point selections. This would occur when rotating from the AF point in the lower left.

3. Fixes the AF point display for the viewfinder electronic level when shooting in the vertical position.

Fixes a phenomenon in which the viewfinder Electronic Level incorrectly displays the high side of the camera.

4.Corrects misspellings in the Spanish and Thai menus for applicable products.

(Previous) Version 1.2.1 improvements:

Firmware Version 1.2.1 includes the following improvement:

1. The camera will allow a longer period of operation before the high temperature warning indicator is displayed, and automatic shut down of the camera occurs, during Live View or when using EOS Movie functions.

When Auto ISO is used and Program Shift is applied, the ISO setting will be more stable and not change as frequently when the Main Dial is rotated.

Corrects a misspelling in the French-language menu.

(Only for products with French menu options.)

2. Fixes a phenomenon in which vertical magenta-colored banding appears in still images taken in movie-shooting mode.

This only occurs when in Manual exposure mode and when the ISO speed is set to "H". Note that this phenomenon only affects units with Firmware Version 1.2.0.

(Previous) Version 1.1.0 improvements:

Firmware Version 1.1.0 includes the following improvement:

1. Fixes a phenomenon that in images captured by continuous shooting, and under certain conditions, barely noticeable traces of the immediately preceding frame may be visible.

This phenomenon is not noticeable in an image with optimal exposure. The phenomenon may become more noticeable if a retouching process such as level compensation is applied to emphasize the image.

(Previous) Version 1.0.9 improvements:

Firmware Version 1.0.9 includes the following fixes:

1. Improves AF accuracy during Live View shooting.

This firmware improves the AF accuracy of the AF mode, Live mode, and Face detection Live mode during Live View shooting.

2. Fixes a phenomenon where in rare instances, movie images shot by the camera may exhibit abnormal colors.

3. Fixes a phenomenon that at certain timings, the shutter cannot be released when the camera's built-in flash or an external Speedlite is used for shooting.

This firmware corrects a phenomenon that in rare instances, the shutter cannot be released after the AF assist beam fires when the camera's built-in flash or an external Speedlite is used for shooting. Firmware Version 1.0.8 or later addresses this phenomenon.
