Title: Canon 5D Mark III Firmware 1.1.2 Released
Post by: Canon Rumors on April 23, 2012, 10:07:43 PM
Canon has released a firmware update for the EOS-5D Mark III.

Affected Product EOS 5D Mark III

Firmware Firmware Version 1.1.2 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

1. Supports a new accessory, GPS receiver GP-E2. 2. Fixes a phenomenon where a pink cast may develop over the image when the shutter is completely pressed with the camera’s power turned off (by the auto power off setting). 3. Fixes a phenomenon where the camera operation stops after one shot when shooting in High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode. 4. Fixes a phenomenon where the Shooting Date/Time in the EXIF data of the image shows a later time than the actual shooting time. 5. Fixes the time zone for the Samoa Islands. 6. Corrects errors in the Finnish menu screen.

Firmware Version 1.1.2 is for cameras with firmware up to version 1.0.7. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.1.2, it is not necessary to update the firmware. The new Firmware Version 1.1.2 can be downloaded by clicking here.

NOTE: Once on the “Drivers & Software” tab please choose operating system and version. Then expand the Firmware section and click on the firmware file name to access the details page.  Choose “I Agree – Begin Download” button to start the download.

What a crappy update, I thought it would have added the missing 14 megapixels.  I'm going to wait for the mk 4.

Firmware instructions have a missing step, or this allergy medicine has effected my reading ability.

Either way, details and fix in separate post: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=5976.0 (http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=5976.0)

I think this firmware was just a minor bug fix, and it will 100% certain not be the last firmware. Some things take time to figure out, and minor issues will be corrected first.

I am surprised how fast this firmware update came from time the camera was released.  Typically, they wait a little longer untill more serious issues are uncovered/addressed and to give their firmware release QC dept more testing time.  The Soma Island guy must have been very convincing  ;D

The issues may have been identified pre March 22nd (launch day). Who knows how long their development cycle is for firmware updates.

Even though i have Lion OS i am going to download the snow leopard firmware and see if it takes. I would guess it does...I wanted to find this link back to report my findings later as i am not home with my 5dm3 right now. I did download it with no problems and it comes with PDF's in diff languages as well as the Firmware file for the camera.

I installed the new firmware and it also fixed that Yongnuo Radio poppers were not able to synchronize a flash before.

The firmware is independent of OS. Only it is zipped for PC and "dmged" for Mac. So you can use the SL one, or the Windows one as well.

I have successfully used Yongnuo RF-602's with my %d3 running firmware 1.0.7. What issues were you having and what model of triggers were you using?

So Canon is now officially changing the word BUG for Phenomenon...

Look at all their latest press releases... Phenomenon ALL over the place...

So to follow suit, I would call ALL Canons Camera releases since Nov. 3. 2011 Phenomena

Are you conscious of the inner components of your Apple branded computer? (yes it's a computer just like the others, no need to feel special about it).
