They have fixed the Mac GUI version of raw2dng, no more 2GB recording limit! That was very fast and very un-Canon!
That's because it's not Canon, it's the MagicLantern team
Exactly! A rag-tag band of part-time, just-for-fun programmers can fix their software in a couple of days...meanwhile Canon announces a firmware update and then takes over 6 months to actually roll it out...
Well, they have some advantages. If things break and your camera no longer works, they aren't legally liable. Granted if it happens to too many people they'll just stop using it. But Canon needs to make sure things are as bullet proof as possible, otherwise they face potential massive liabilities. Also, ML runs on top/alongside the Canon firmware, they don't have to do everything top to bottom like the firmware does.
That said...I definitely agree Canon should move faster with some of their firmware updates.
