Firmware: Canon Updates Pretty Much Every DSLR

*note I incorrectly named the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS as the lens pertaining to the issue, when in fact it is the brand new EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens. Sorry about that.

Canon appears to have updated every legacy DSLR that has aberration correction to fix an issue with the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM.

  1. Corrects a phenomenon in which when using the camera with the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM lens, even if lens aberration correction is set to “Enable”, correction will not be applied.

The following DSLRs have available firmware updates.

Happy firmware updating!

I’ll be honest, I very rarely get excited about a product on Kickstarter, which is why it’s very rare to see us promoting any of the campaigns. However, this one is pretty cool.

What is Gear Eye?

GearEye is a smart gear management system for on-the-go professionals. It enables you to manage your equipment through thick and thin: organization, tracking, and making sure you always have everything you need whether at home or on the job. GearEye is a game-changer for anything from the smallest messenger bag to the largest camera suitcase.
