Canon EOS 5D Mark III Firmware 1.1.3
« on: June 18, 2012, 09:59:27 PM »
New Firmware
Canon is issuing new firmware for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III on June 19, 2012. No new features have been added to the camera. I’m told that is is coming at a later date.

Firmware Version 1.1.3 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

  1. Supports the single focal length EF40mm f/2.8 STM lens that is to be released at the end of June, 2012.
  2. Fixes a phenomenon in which an image may become underexposed when using the Auto Lighting Optimizer for continuous Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB) shooting.
  3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the backlight of the LCD monitor may not turn off depending on the camera settings and timing.
  4. Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera’s power may not turn on when a super-telephoto lens*1) is mounted to the camera with an extender*2).
  5. - EF 300mm F2.8L IS II USM / EF 400mm F2.8L IS II USM
  6. - Extender EF 1.4X III / Extender EF 2X III
  7. Corrects mistakes in the Dutch, Italian, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, and Swedish menu screens

Download Firmware 1.1.3 for the 5D Mark III at Canon USA

Thanks David

Not if you're Italian and the spelling mistakes were really rubbing you the wrong way.

I don't have a mk3 (yet), but watching these updates... this one doesn't seem all that great. Especially for people waiting for that end of month update hoping it was something good. I guess maybe #2 in that list is good?

Um...since when does a camera need to be updated to support a new lens? What on Earth is so special about the Shorty McForty that it warrants a 5DIII firmware update?

And those of you lucky so-and-sos on the worng side of the Pond who've already got your pancakes...any of all y'all got a 5DIII? Any problems with the combination?

Cheers,

I wonder if this means the 5D III will support auto-focus in video mode then?

Does this...

Mean that firmware updates are required for other cameras before this lens will work with them?
Or what's the deal?

witht he shorty forty I am guessing it just updating the internal database to recognise it rather than just giving you a generic 40mm like you get if you plug in a sigma or a tamron, not to actually make the lens work

Does a person have to DL any previous update(s) before installing this one?

Kind of annoyed as a Canon T1i owner that they are already at 1.1.3 for the Canon 5D MkIII and yet they stopped at 1.1.1 for the T1i.  I use my Canon T1i every day for photo shoots and would have liked a lot more features that would have been capable from the Digic 4 processore,  like manual video controls which are capable when using Magic Lantern but should have been added like they were to the 5D MKII. 
Some of my photos using the cheap but great T1i

Probably for the in-camera peripheral illumination & CA correction...

I could have sworn that's done with lens profiles that you download to thhe camera with DPP, and not with firmware.

So much for the exciting CR2.
lame!

They can't type one number and give a freakin working autoiso under 1 series level when every other make does it at their low, low end and has for years?

Hopefully this is just a quick temp release and 1.1.4 is coming and they can add the absolutely basics of zebras, focus peaking, crop modes, higher bitrates to video.
