50D Gets a Minor Update
Below are the following fixes/features of the new EOS 50D Firmware. I guess it’s nice to see new firmware for a discontinued product.
- Improves the writing/reading speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards.
- Fixes incorrect indications in the Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Arabic, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese, Thai and Turkish menu screens.

Firmware 1.0.8 for the 60D
A reader reports buying 2 60D’s and each camera had a different firmware version. One camera was 1.0.5, the other was 1.0.8.
I expect any 60D firwmare update will be “phenomenon” fixes.
1D Mark IV Firmware
I’ve been told again that new firmware for the 1D4 is in the pipeline. A feature or 2 may be added which has delayed development.
