There's been an updated manual for the 7D out for about a month online from Canon. It addresses a couple issues I've seen posted about here:QuoteQuoteThe new stills raw-processor and ratings-feature don't work on stills taken prior to the update. Rating won't work on videos prior to update.
Updated 7D Manual P. 191: You cannot process the RAW images or resize JPEG images shot when the firmware version was 1.x.x with the camera updated to version 2.x.x.QuoteQuoteI think it needs some deeper examination, what exactly goes on in a camera and how it corresponds to settings in DPP. I feel now like guys, who found out, that neutrinos are faster than light.
Updated 7D Manual P. 196: Processing RAW images in the camera will not produce the same results as processing RAW images with Digital Photo Professional.
I'll be downloading & installing when I get home tonight. And checking the revised manual for more "gotchas" like this!
BTW - the revised manual has this on the cover page:QuoteThis manual is for the EOS 7D installed with firmware version 2.0.0 or later.
Who'd ever care reading manuals Seriously I didn't care because I thought my 7d would be sold until 2.0 firmware is ready and out. Thanks for mentioning that there should be a difference, what I happily managed to see with my own eyes
