wow, so boring.

I was hoping they'd at least toss us a bone and simply outline the histogram box so you can actually see where it ends when shooting outside of a dark lab. But Canon made the change to remove the box and since Canon never makes a mistake I guess we will never get this important and trivial to fix issue ever fixed for any body....

How about auto bracketing more than 3 stops in 2011 on my $2500 (state-of-the-art), camera body. My consumer MFT camera has that beat by two brackets.  So embarrassing, Canon. Really.

So, should I finally upgrade?  I am running 1. something from over 2 years ago.  Besides 24 frame video, do you gain a lot?

Yes, manual control for audio and video alone is totally worth it!  I always considered 24p a bonus in that release.

That's a shame: so many firmware with new functionalities and updates for that prosumer camera, and almost any for the professional and expensive 1D IV: the only EOS still without manual sound control.


My 400D doesn't have manual sound control  ;)

Neither does the 7D... then again the 7d does 720 HD so I suppose I should count my blessings...
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

The 2.1.1 link appears to be removed from the website.  I think it will re-appear Monday as a valid link.

Personnally I won't try much hard to find it and install it until Canon releases it more officially. Reason is, maybe it was buggy!

And knowing what changes appear, I'm not so excited!

certainly the latest one officially up on the site
if you have the very very first one that would even mean you'd still have the black dots issues nevermind no 24p and no manual audio and at some point they fixed the sraw formats a bit too.

I only did one firmware update to my 5D MK II, and that was about December 2008 or early 2009, not long after I got it.  Nothing else that affected or interested me has happened since, so I missed out on the updates that caused user issues as well as the ones that subsequently fixed them.  If they ever release a update that affects me, I can jump straight to it and I'll get all those updates made over the last three years with it.

Just updated without problems. It's a shame that whenever there is a firmware update posted, that a little voice inside me is hoping gleefully that there will be some added feature. Ah well.

I haven't used cameras 'back then', but my impression is film bodies were never (or very rarely) upgraded with new features, and things are worse today, as manufacturors expect people to treat camera bodies as disposable products replaced by new models every so often (read: so new features would be added to new cameras, encouraging owners to dispose of the old cameras in favour of new ones).
