FIRMWARE 2.0.4 RELEASED

Special Thanks to Canon Firmware Team for this great update and for fixing the previous reported problem very fast.

Download Firmware 2.0.4 from here:

http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/firm-e/eos5dmk2/firmware.html

PLEASE: Follow carefully all instructions to update your camera. Do not touch anything during the process.

CONSIDERATIONS

As we reported in our previous post, we collected few other possible issues that were supposed to be malfunctions of update 2.0.3. But after some deep tests everything seems to work fine.

We will keep checking and reporting on them or any other possible issue. We are welcome to receive any comment regarding issues that users might find.

As we said, this is a really great update, although more professional on video and cinematography should have been given with beta versions to test deeper and detect issues faster, and even make some suggestions.

SUPPORT

If you think all our efforts and campaigns to help to brig these updates for improvements to ALL users since beginning of 2009 (1st for Full Manual Control, later for STANDARD 23.976/25/29.97fps modes) and some further ones deserve some support, please consider supporting us.

You can read a brief history of the whole process here, here, here and here.

The whole story would be very long to tell, and even include some aspects not publicly known, so we won’t bore you.

We will keep watching closely to check if further improvements are possible to achieve. Few of the most requested ones are 720p50/60 mode and Full HD output through HDMI. So stay tuned, this might continue.

No matter the amount, your help will be very much appreciated and valuable.

We really need your support. Thank you very much in advance.
