Canon EOS-1D X Firmware 1.0.6
« on: August 28, 2012, 07:18:20 AM »
Firmware Version 1.0.6 incorporates the following fixes.


  1. Fixes a phenomenon in which the AF Microadjustment cannot be correctly carried out.
  2. Fixes a phenomenon such that when using the camera with combinations of certain lens
  • *1) and extender
  • *2) the images captured become back-focused.
  • *1) EF 70-200m f/2.8L IS II USM or EF200mm f/2L IS USM
  • When used with
  • *2) Extender EF 1.4x III or Extender EF 2x III
  1. Fixes a phenomenon in which, when the camera is powered on in very dark environments (including instances when the lens cap or the body cap is attached), Error 80 appears on the camera.
  2. Fixes the following phenomenon: if two CF cards are inserted into the camera and the “Standard” or “Auto switch card” settings is selected for the recording method for [Record func+card/folder sel.], and then one of the CF cards is removed and then reinserted into the card slot, the card selected for recording and playing back images may be switched to the other CF Card.
  3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the AF microadjustment value is not correctly displayed in the EXIF information of the images captured.
  4. Displays a “O” or “X” result to indicate whether images have been successfully transferred through the FTP protocol when using the FTP protocol when using the WFT-E6 Wireless File Transmitter.

Is it me or did the menu speed up also? It feels faster when selecting menu-items...

Viggo, I hope it did.  The menu was the only thing that lagged a bit with this camera.  I updated at lunchtime today, but have not had a chance to test it yet.  Will test it this evening.
Cheers

Wow!  Very glad Canon is fixing this.  I reported this issue to Canon with the 5D3 when it first came out.  I guess they felt it necessary to fix in the 1Dx first.  Hopefully it will get applied to the next 5D3 firmware as well.

I know Canon doesn't read these threads but thanks Canon for listening!

Before I install this firmware update I thought that I had better ask for a little help.

If I am reading the Canon web site correctly the FIR file should be 33.02 MB once expanded.  However, when I download the file, expand and then right click to properties I show the downloaded file to be 32,988,060 bytes.  I have downloaded and expanded the file two times and get the same 32,988,060 bytes on both downloads but the apparent difference caused a little concern.

When in doubt ask for help.  Do I have the full file for updating?  Want to be sure before attempting to install on the camera.

I am new to the Digital SLR camera "game".  Is it normal for Canon (or other companies for that matter) to issue firmware updates, or have recalls so close to the initial release of the product? 

This phenomenon is dampening my excitement for new products... at least until a few months have past.

Yes it is normal.  Computer manufacturers do it too.  Camera makers are not unique to this level of support.  Actually I am glad they release updates frequently.  I used to have a TV that had firmware problems and it was impossible to flash without sending it back to the manufacturer for updates.  The shipping would have cost more than the TV was worth!

Usually I update camera body firmware through Canon software directly via USB cable. So I don't need card reader at all.

Is it me or did the menu speed up also? It feels faster when selecting menu-items...
You know that feeling when you have updated video card driver on your computer from version 162.31 to 162.62 and the colors became juicy, motion pictures smoother and everything started working faster. That's how self-deception works  ;)

Sorry to keep asking questions but I really would hate to mess this up.

If Canon says the file is 33.04 MB then that should calculate to 33,812,480 bytes (33.04 X 1024).  The extracted FIR file that I have downloaded is 32,988,060 bytes according to the "properties" function. 

I confess I am not a computer person but it sounds like my file is not complete.  Any help appreciated.

Ah, so you mean how people just guess on something without having any means of knowing?
