EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 5D Mark III & Third Party Batteries
« on: December 13, 2013, 05:07:09 PM »
I pointed this out in the Canon Australia facebook page as soon as the firmware for the Canon 5DIII disabled reporting of third party batteries - their response? To delete my post!

They know very well the effect it has on all the users of third party batteries and they don't give a rats about it.

To my mind I have three choices - 1. Change brands 2. Put up with the stupid prompts about third party batteries or 3. Reinstall the original firmware which was working fine to start with (edit - Option 3 doesn't exist - once the version of firmware is upgraded, you can;t reinstall the original firmware back in it ).

Number 3 looks to be the winner until Canon realise that all they are doing is inconvienencing the people who shell out the money for their product.

Post from Canon Australia back in February says -

We are developing a solution to enhance the focusing feature for the EOS 5D Mark III and EOS-1DX and plan to release a firmware update based on following estimated schedule:

    EOS 5D Mark III: (estimated) Late April, 2013
    EOS-1DX: (estimated) Late May, 2013

Personally, I don't hold out much hope of it being on time or the focal point illumination being fixed given past history - it's been 6 months since it was announced!
