Sorry to say this, but 1.1.2 isn't new.

Bummer, I guess I'll have to update when the new one is out.

Dropped off Friday at 1pm and it was ready Tuesday at 4:30pm. No bad

I saw a few pages back that allegedly Magic Lantern can squeeze better dynamic range out of the sensor. If that's true, I wonder if Canon is working on something in that regard.

Soooo.... it's now June - any more news Mr. OP? Did this appear and I missed it?
Thanks,
M

Hey now, let's not shoot the messenger

Maybe it is juat a wish, but is it possible to add the new continuous Movie Servo AF offerred by T4i to 5D3 via a firmware update?

I was thinking exactly the same. Let's hope so... Plus some extra dynamic range and everything is perfect :)

Hope the next update deals with the low ISO banding.  Masses of it on dark areas of shots with ISO 250 without any pushing in post.

1. improved Auto-ISO function! Primarily adding exposure correction for "M" mode on Auto-ISO.  That would be really easy to fix in firmware and make Auto-ISO a lot  more useful.

+1. I use "M" mode with Auto-ISO about 80% of the time. I'd use it even more if EC and AEB were usable. I also want a safety shift when there is too much light in M/Auto-ISO and the camera overexposes.

I just hope it means a 5D3 new firmware that has been rumored is coming too.

They so incredibly badly need to:
1. remove the silly 1/250th limit in AutoISO Av and bump it to a good 1/2000th or allow for EC in AutoISO M or both
2. they have GOT to add focus peaking to the video mode!!!!
3. they really should add zebra stripes for blown exposure to the video mode
4. they really need to add a 1920x1080 2x2 sampled 1.6x cropped video mode and it wouldn't hurt to also add an even more extreme mode (although this latter one would need to have some line skipping compromises of course, the 1.6x would not) although the non-line skipped 1.6x needs to be there regardless
5. let the user have the option for a really high bitrate for video for the IPB mode

It seems that some people in this thread are looking at the wrong camera. This camera is designed mainly for still photography, NOT video.

Video is just a small "side bonus" on the 5D3, so don't be so surprised if Canon doesn't give you the features you want. They are saving all the good stuff for the 1DC-line. That is where you should be looking.

a $15,000 brick?

Alas, it is a shame that most of the missing features can't be added by firmware. Like more resolution, more DR, and spot metering linked to selected AF point. (Just to name a few).

And yet those video features mostly COULD all be added by firmware so....
