Canon 40D Firmware Update

Hello,
I got My new Canon 40D two weeks ago and was reading that a update to the firmware called 1.1.1 is available, And my New camera has version 1.0.8

Is anyone running this new version if so have you had any problems with it, Like has your camera been made worse cus of this update. as i am afraid that it mite make my 40D not function properly.

Or should I just leave well alone.

Cheers,

Eyesociety.

Re: Canon 40D Firmware Update

I try to keep up to date with firmware, and this one was posted in the news forum on the 20th January.

http://www.pixalo.com/community/news...tml#post251329

Here is an extract from that post

Quote:
Firmware update Version 1.1.1 incorporates the following fixes and improvements.

1. Fixes a malfunction that in rare occurrence causes a low battery indication to be displayed when using the EF 85mm F1.2L II USM lens. Depending on the battery check timing of the camera, the battery level displayed on the camera's LCD data panel may shows Battery will be exhausted soon or Battery must be recharged, even though the battery capacity is sufficient.
2. Fixes a malfunction that in rare occurrence causes an Err 06 Self Cleaning Sensor malfunction to appear on the camera's LCD monitor and LCD data panel, even when the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit is operating normally. This message may appear depending on the timing of when the camera is switch to the ON position.
3. Fixes a malfunction that prevents correct colors from being printed when direct printing. RAW images captured using the camera's custom Picture Styles (Emerald, etc.), which have been downloaded from Canon's Web site and registered under User Def. 2 or User Def. 3.
4. Modifies the level of subject brightness that causes the AF-assist beam to fire when using an external Speedlite.
5. Enables an external flash connected to the camera's synchro terminal to fire even when the camera's built-in flash is popped up.

Version 1.1.1 firmware is for EOS 40D cameras with firmware up to Version 1.1.0. If the camera's firmware is already Version 1.1.1, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
You will have to wait until other 40D users come along to see how it affects the camera in use, or their reasons for not installing it.

No great shakes or bells and whistles with this update. It costs nothing except a few minutes of your time. At least your covered.

Re: Canon 40D Firmware Update

I installed the update on my 40D a month ago and it has continued to operate perfectly since. I have had this camera well over a year and this is the second update I have applied and neither caused any problems. Just follow the instructions on the Canon download site and you will be OK.
