EOS 60D Firmware Update 1.0.9

Canon has recently released a firmware update for the EOS 60D DSLR camera.

Before proceeding to update your camera, carefully follow all instructions given by Canon. Update it with a fully charged battery (Canon brand) and do NOT touch anything during the process.

Below we post the information provided by Canon and the download link.

CHANGES

Firmware Version 1.0.9 incorporates the following fixes and changes.

1. Changes the name of the feature called “Art Filters” to “Creative Filters” (which is used in markets other than Japan) in the Japanese version to make the terms consistent. (This change only applies to the Japanese version and does not apply to other language versions.)

2. Fixes a phenomenon where the camera may operate abnormally when it is set to Quick Mode AF during Live View shooting immediately after capturing an image with the C.Fn II-1 Long exposure noise reduction setting set to [2: On] and a shutter speed setting of 5 seconds or more.

3. Fixes a phenomenon where the camera may operate abnormally when after Live View shooting, the remote switch on the EOS Utility screen is pressed to immediately start movie-shooting. This phenomenon only occurs when the camera is connected to a compatible personal computer and the Remote Live View function of EOS Utility software is being used.

Firmware Version 1.0.9 is for cameras with Firmware up to Version 1.0.8. If the camera’s firmware is already Version 1.0.9, it is not necessary to update the firmware.
