7D Firmware update - any news there?
« on: June 27, 2012, 11:14:27 AM »
Many of us are still patiently awaiting the much anticipated new 7D firmware update that was posted here a few weeks ago. Any news of this actually happening anyone? Thank you.

These would make an excellent addition to an already brilliant camera since I am going to keep my 7D for another year until the Mark III becomes a little cheaper.

I'm looking forward to GP-E2 GPS support being added. I'm hopping it also supports some non-Canon GPS alternates. ........and wishing for an upgrade from three to five shot brackets.

I wonder if this is the start of improved customisation through better firmware menus.

It could be that Canon have been listening and seeing ML

Does anyone know yet if EC can be used in M mode with auto-iso? If it's added, I 'm sure they'll add it to the 5d3 also.

*EDIT* It says august, man, do they need 1,5 months from announcement to release on FIRMWARE also, what IS this?!

It would be good, even if it is just the 1 series implementation moved across.

Simple ec in M mode would be good, with the 1 series implementation having wider reaching benefits

I wonder also if the announcement of new firmware implies anything about the eventual 7D successor or lack thereof.

Isn't it a little unusual for Canon to do this major a firmware update? Usually they just put out bug fixes.


It almost seems like Canon plans to run the 7D as a companion for the 5D3 for a while yet. Is this a plausible assumption?

I highly doubt that this means the 7d mk2 is hitting the shelves before christmas to say the least, yes. Maybe the 70d will replace the 7d and it will be a entry level FF between the 70d and the 5d once the 7d is really replaced.
