That looks like a good update! I am wishing for #4 at least in the next upgrade for the 5D3.

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.

You can add Erase Images to My Menu, it takes the time of
Selecting, or you can do what I do; Protect all images you like and when you you're done shooting press Erase All, and it leaves only the protected images.

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 !!!

Enjoy your D4s.

Regards,
One of the sports idiots and ornithologists.

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.

Hmm I reprogrammed the set button on back to enabled ISO change.  Just press the set button and rotate the top scroll wheel.  Instant exposure compensation.

Why did you put "idiots" behind sports?
Probably left out a comma. I don't shoot birds or sports or idiots either.
Even a comma does not explain things. People may be idiots or ornithologists but they cannot be ... sports...  ;D

Of course they can! For example: "be a sport, don't make offensive remarks unnecessarily!"

I would LOVE to have #4 on my 5Diii, it's one of only two complaints I have about that camera.

Come on Canon, exposure compensation when using manual exposure and ISO Auto on the 5Diii!

It's a great feature, however I don't find any of the two options how to set exposure compensation suitable for me...  :-\

I think his issue is, as he says in his post, "I work & shoot in the dark", probably needs to turn the lights on from time to time, makes a world of difference to your perspective, makes everything....I don't know...clearer ??

But it's good news for some prospective 1Dx owner, chance to pick up one of those overpriced pieces of junk 1Dx thingies 2nd hand.

Hey folks,

Great that we finally have EC in Manual/Auto-ISO mode, but has anyone figured out how to actually dial it in?

Index wheel & QCD change Speed and Aperture, so I'm deducing that it's another button like M.Fn, but I can't get anything to work.

Any idea anyone?

Go to Custom Controls in menu 5 and choose SET button to the last option, ev symbol plus arrow down . Then to use it hold the set button and scroll the top wheel

Thanks Viggo,

I did some more research and found the same thing in an updated PDF user manual they've released.

After I installed the new frimaware, I quickly went to my local bird spot. It was at sunset and the light was dropping fast.
Auto iso with exposure compensation  works as it should. I have been waiting for this and it finally is here.
Furthermore, I notice a lot better AF in low light, I ended up shooting at 8000 iso, and AF is a lot better then before
1DX, 7D and lots of gear

+100 on that. I have had huge problems with my kids in lower light, their faces is always the spot with the least contrast, and with big, thick clothes with very bright colors and beanies now makes it even more difficult, but now, wow! It just locks in the light just before dawn without any problems at all, and the tracking is superb! This is by far the best firmware update I have ever tried on a Canon. Love it!
