Canon expects the firmware update to be available in the first half of 2010 and will release more details as they become available.
In addition, the company has made available a firmware update for the EOS 7D digital SLR camera for download. The new firmware (Version 1.0.9) claims to:
– Improve AF accuracy during Live View shooting
– Correct a phenomenon where, in rare instances, movie images exhibit abnormal colours; and
– Correct a phenomenon where the shutter does not release when used with the built-in or external flash unit.
Canon advises users of cameras with firmware up to Version 1.0.8 to visit the following site and follow the instructions: http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/firm-e/eos7d/firmware.html
