Canon have today released new firmware for the Canon EOS1DX Camera. I don’t often post this kind of news to my blog, but as the Canon EOS 1DX is my primary camera and the main camera for many others I know, I felt it news worth sharing. This bug fix is not something I have personally ever experienced on either of my Canon EOS1DX cameras, but if you do have this custom function set in your camera this would be a worthwhile update.
Firmware Version 2.0.8 incorporates the following fix.
- Fixes a phenomenon which occurs when the “Shutter button half-press” menu item, configured in “C.Fn5: Operation” > “Custom Controls Menu”, is set to metering start only; depending on when the shutter button is half-pressed, it may initiate AutoFocus.
Firmware Version 2.0.8 is for cameras with firmware Version 2.0.7 or earlier. If your camera’s firmware is already Version 2.0.8, it is not necessary to update the firmware. The firmware update takes approximately seven minutes.
