Firmware Version 1.1.1 incorporates the following fixes.
Fixes a phenomenon where the camera’s serial number that is displayed in the shooting information of the image does not display the correct serial number. *1)
Corrects errors in the Greek, Italian, and Portuguese menu screens.
*1) If the camera’s serial number is 2147483648 or higher and the camera firmware is Version 1.1.0 or earlier, the images captured with the camera will be affected by the phenomenon listed in 1. above.
This phenomenon only affects the EOS 60D, and does not affect the EOS 60Da. Both of these cameras are equipped with the same firmware.
To obtain the serial number correctly in the shooting information of images that are already captured using the old firmware, we are preparing updates for Digital Photo Professional and ZoomBrowser EX / ImageBrowser applications.
Once the software updates are ready, we will make an announcement on our Web site.
5D2 Price Drops? We have heard that the 5D Mark II will receive an MSRP price drop on March 4, 2012 in the United States of $2199 for the body and $2999 for the 24-105 f/4L IS kit. Actual street price will probably be lower.
Inspired by the song’s lyrics, “not to make it a memory,” Party created the video using 250 Canon still cameras; their flashes were controlled via a potent DIY cocktail of arduino, openFrameworks, and Flash. The effect is a “light animation” produced with no CGI at all.
Something Coming? There’s some talk about a “significant” Canon announcement for NAB. I wouldn’t think NAB would bring about a DSLR announcement, but maybe something in the camcorder realm is a possibility.
Availability of anything new is another story.
Japan Lots of people are asking what’s going to happen with stock levels and things like that with Canon and other Japanese origin gadgets. The answer is, I don’t know.
Canon is telling their reps not to say anything about Japan and what effect this tragedy is going to have on the industry. For the moment, no one really knows.
What I will say, is do not expect this to be rectified in a couple of weeks. We’re talking months before anything gets back to what is considered “normal”.
Canon Canada Cancels Upcoming 60D Rebate Canon Canada has cancelled an upcoming instant rebate program on the 60D, a casualty of the earthquake. There’s probably going to be more of this coming in the next few weeks.
