To date, Canon has issued only 5 lens firmware updates.  Four of them are covered by this advisory, the other I referred to above, which was available for download and application via camera body. 


There was the 200/2 IS issue ith the 5d3, among other teles.

Was the fix for that issue a lens firmware update?  The Canon service advisory mentions only 'repair'.

So here's a question, how can one determine if an affected model has already had the new firmware installed?  This would be more relevant for those that have picked up the MKII used.

Serial number, or mount the lens to a post-2012 camera and go the firmware menu, which will show versions for both the body and the attached lens.

Lighting / Re: Basic help: How does Flash exposure compensation works
« Last post by eninja on September 18, 2014, 11:22:09 PM »
Do you guys mean that,

What ever the FEC setting is, when flash is ON, it will always makes the subject "well expose" at least?

Background:

Even if FEC is set to -3, flash will still give light such that 'subject' (refers to background if nothing in between) will be "well expose" (means standard exposure = 0)

Sadly, it sounds like moving the 7Dii to video is more important to Canon.
Very disappointed.

I have no idea why one would think this camera suggests "video is more important to Canon." Because honestly I see this camera as living proof that Canon actually couldn't care less about video. The video capabilities of this camera would have been interesting about four years ago. As it is now, for cinematographers, this camera is dead on arrival.

So like you I am disappointed but for entirely different reasons.

Head over to our 7D lab samples page for both the RAW and JPEG versions of our Still Life target

Why is someone whose portfolio is full of glorified snapshots so concerned about his equipment?

Hacks need to make money too.

Since 7D II RAW images are unlikely supported yet, are we basically looking at the difference between in-body JPEG engines?

Yeah.  The image quality differences between 7D/70D could very well be due solely to greater processing power.  We won't know anything, really, until we get RAWs.

That said, I compared it to the 1DIV and the jpegs look very similar, with the edge going to the larger sensor.  It definitely looks better than the D7100.  The A6000 looks better, as does the Fuji XTrans. I've always thought that Fuji's real strength was in their jpeg engine and this is pretty solid proof of that for me.  The 7DII should be just fine for a high end crop but the sensor doesn't seem to be much more than a slightly juiced 70D sensor.
