haven't heard anything about it; from what I know Canon USA only officially lists up to version 1.2.3

Canon Jp still lists 1.2.3 as well (this is the place where it'll show up 1st.)

It usually shows up first in newly delivered cameras, web sites are updated a few weeks later.

I've read a few instances where cameras have been sent for repair / adjustments and come back with 1.2.4 firmware. But for now it is not officially released and thus no information as to what has changed is available.

Hi guys,

I have been having corrupt video files on my Canon 7D.
I recently sent it to the canon specialists in north London, they have put the 1.2.4 update on and told me it will fix the corrupt movie issue.

Hope this helps, I will let you know more when I get it back, should be this week.

Since I got my 7D, I will have maybe 1/3 of the video files display "Cannot read file" when on the camera, but when I pull the video on the computer, it will play fine.  I assume that the camera is very picky about the header information in the file.

Is this the same issue with the 1.2.4 update?  I wasn't sure what it was and thought it might be my memory card.  Even so, I have never had a file fail to play on the computer.

If this happens on your other memory cards, send the camera in for repair before the warranty expires.  It is not normal.

Unfortunately, I only have one to test with, but the recent 1.2.5 update looks promising.

A cheap backup card can be had for a few dollars, and, if your card dies while you are out taking photos, you will appreciate having a second one.  You do not need a huge fast card, a $15 dollar one will do the job.
