EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Unreliable AF on 7D with FW 2.0.3?

Might be your Body, my body purchased in Nov of 09 feels a DOT heavier and the buttons different than a friends purchased in 2011. Especially the back wheel has a heavier click.

DID you read up on few of my posts here,  On a PC its basically a bait and switch get the EOS util to think you giving it he current firmware say 2.03 and just before it loaded it rename and replace it with the old one renamed to the current firmware (some guy online had all the firmwares stock piled, so you could go back to any version you want)

Lenses / Re: Which Prime: 50L or 35L?
« on: October 15, 2012, 06:34:11 PM »
24 mk II on a 7D is gold, 35 L is better for the 1D X is good at 2.0(still ver very good at 1.4 but thats me) 70 - 200 MKII does allot of the  portrait work less distortion.


24 on the 1 D X feels a bit too wide or high distortion up close but neat for rock and close work.

So many sexy options i dont think you can miss wit a newer prime just the question is, what do you want to achieve/shoot.

Short answer I got and old FIRM WARE as it was being loaded i  renamed it/replaced the one about to be LOADED with the OLD one(one your happy with)


I searched online got my old firm ware renamed it to a current one say 2.0.0.fir its sucks it up
loaded it with EOS-UTIL then on the 7D it says upgrade 2.0.0 with 1.23 FIR and Voila!

REASON why i back-dated the burst amount when from 22 frames to 4 then buffer stutter, yes 4. I freaked and was lucky it was a easy enough fix.

As far as backdating,  add the "current"2.x.x firmware" and when it asks do you want to use this one switch out the file with a renamed 1.2.x.x.x  to a 2.fir   file name. the camera will swallow it and yo will even see in the camera menu update 2.0.0 with 1.25 yes let it run and you back in business.

sorry if this is glossed over but if you have played with DOS files or goofy thing like computers before you maybe familiar with it.

The firmware is junk i back dated to 1.09 by using the EOS utility , did you guys do this?

75
Budget is small probably 1200$ but ever dollar has to count so no 300$ stands only i know the will LAST but the effectors are the priority.

in theory id like 2 smaller girded soft boxes on booms and one LARGE umbrella and a octabox.

has to be speed light friendly as it seems it  mostly  studio light friendly so maybe that's a limitation.

and is why i asked my question here amongst experienced people.

thanks again!
