Download Firmware 1.2.1 link for 5DIII
« on: April 26, 2013, 08:03:54 AM »
So I've found a link to the new firmware... I'm not claiming any responsibility for this, but other people on the site seem to have gone through with it, with good results. Apparently someone got a copy of the new firmware directly from Canon, on a memory stick, when they sent in there camera.

Let me know how you fair with it, if you do decide to try it :)

Happy shooting

Canon USA has a link posted for April 30th. I'm waiting at least until then, they still might be tweaking it.

Updated fine... I'm not a video guy, so I can't comment about the HDMI out, but I wanted this to speed up the AF assist lamp issue... and it does seem a lot snappier (excuse the pun).
I'm a much happy camper atm. I'll have to wait until I'm in work later today to really walk it through it paces, but I'll let everyone know how I get on :)

I complete understand, and respect your comment... I guess I'm just far too impatient. As as an early adopter of the camera in the first place, I'm quite happy to be a Guinea pig for it, if that is the case. I just wanted to give people the option, as I was hunting for a link myself.
