*UPDATE* What’s the firmware do?
I received some info about firmware 1.2.0. It is a legitimate version.

– Fixes issues related to poor quality third party batteries.
– Added code for upcoming remotes, accessories and lenses.

The source is a good one.

5D Mark II Issue (Direct Quote)

Also, 5DII twitch (confirmed as a metering spike) is known – keeps things looking even for the sensor which fluctuates charge/discharge based upon several criteria.  It’s working properly when it does this, sensing changes that are electronic and compensating for image continuity.  It allows for smooth transitions, both while focusing and for proper exposure.  The sudden opening and closing “bridges” the gap during a discharge.  It is inherently random.


A post on POTN shows a 7D with what appears to be firmware version 1.2.0. The current official version from Canon is version 1.1.0.

New Firmware Coming?

See the thread for more:

No word yet on what fixes or features were addressed. It’s after April 1, so I think we can assume it’s not a PS job.

Thanks Troy

  1. Some people who participate of this report are pros who work on video and photography fields since decades, but do NOT believe us.

    Just do the tests, so you can verify it by your own.

  2. I have a 7D but its batt performance turned out to be really sub par… I can barely survive a day with the batt fully charged is this normal?

  3. No that’s not normal. My 7D battery lasts for several days after being fully charged. I got over 900 shots plus a little video out of a single charge. What does the battery info screen tell you about the battery?

  4. Well, it’s gone. Good thing too, it just made the comments messy. :)
