Updating 7D Firmware from 1.2.5 to 2.0.5
« on: June 05, 2014, 03:30:56 PM »
Hi

Got a second hand 7D with the old 1.2.5 firmware.

Can anyone advice if I can go directly to 2.0.3, then to 2.0.5?

Or do I have to upgrade to 2.0.0, then 2.0.3 then 2.0.5?

thx

All firmware updates are completely cumulative.  You can just install the most recent version over whatever is on the camera, no matter how old.

Thanks,

I have doubts because of this I found in the Canon support pages:

"Firmware Version 2.05 is for cameras with Firmware Version 2.0.3"

Sure then no risks going fro, 1.2.5 striaght to 2.0.5?

Hi Fegari.
Are you sure you want to go to 2.0.5, I thought there was some talk that it only fixed a very obscure issue and could nobble the use of 3rd party batteries.

Cheers Graham.

Did not know that. Can anyone comment? what does 2.0.5 really bring as improvements?
