Nice firmware update. Now I hope we, Canon 5D3 owners get a minimum shutter speed update for Auto ISO in the next firmware release... (plus Exp compensation...)

Indeed, even with 1/250 max speed, the exp compensation for auto iso would come in handy. (I use often +1/3 or +2/3)

Still no clean HDMI. That's it!! I am selling this overpriced camera! Nikon D4s next! ARROGANT Canon!

And please consider this Canon:  Not all who own the 1DX are sports idiots or ornithologists, some just want the best possible low light performance for their creative work!

I work and shoot in the dark (video and stills). And the 1DX has one stop ISO advantage over the 5D Mark III, and has way less color banding when lifting shadows than the 5D Mark III. But after Canon gave the 5D Mark III clean HDMI the advantage is less than before on video.It is certainly possible to give the 1DX clean HDMI, since the 1DC hast it. But Canon finds it more convenient to force me into selling my house to buy the 1DC, than to give the 1DX the same features as the Nikon D4 !!!

Why did you put "idiots" behind sports?
Probably left out a comma. I don't shoot birds or sports or idiots either.

Exposure compensation in M mode... Need this for 5D3.

I shoot around 90% in M mode and this has been a huge problem. Of course one can quickly bump the ISO up or down, but then it's not suitable for the next shot anymore and going back to auto ISO is not that fast.

Even a comma does not explain things. People may be idiots or ornithologists but they cannot be ... sports...  ;D

It would make Auto ISO really useful  :-\

I also would love exposure compensation in M mode, although I only have the 6D so would love to see it trickle all the way down there.  I would be very happy to see it in the 5DIII and next generation for when I eventually upgrade.

This would have REALLY helped to have last week when I was shooting an outdoor wedding basically in total darkness...on New Year's Eve...when it was 32 degrees outside.  AI Servo was pretty much useless on locking onto the walking couples.  I had to use one shot (with focus assist) and walk backwards with them to get clean shots.  This update might not have improved it enough, but any boost would have helped.

I just hope they will put this into the 1D C soon too. I hope I don´t have to wait too long before I can send it in for the update.
Sadly with 1D C you can´t download and install it yourself.

That's a very good point, why didn't it come for both at the same time ? Perhaps it will come with new video related stuff and that takes some more time?

I hope for the 1dc owners that they get to enjoy this upgrade shortly.

nice firmware update...i'm happy.

question...does anyone know if you can customize the 1dx to delete the most recent MULTIPLE shots taken?

for example, if i shoot a quick burst of 10 shots, and then do a quick review and notice that nothing looked good....can i set a button to immediately delete the last 5 or 10 shots?

when i work a game, i like to review and delete in the field while the action is stopped so that i only bring 100 or 200 shots to my laptop versus 500 or more.
