EOS 7D Firmware 1.2.5 Coming Soon

UPDATE: April 24, 2011 – Download still available –

As mentioned in our previous article, Canon UK removed the links to the new firmware version 1.2.5 for EOS 7D. But we realized that in fact the files are still on the server.

So, if you really need the update and don’t want to wait until Canon officially release, you can still download it (if Canon doesn’t change the file location or completely removes it).

To know about the improvements and fixes incorporated in this update, please check this article. Below we post the current links to Canon server.

DISCLAIMER: You should know what you are doing and all the precautions that must be taken when updating your camera’s firmware (doing it with a fully charged Canon brand battery, not touching anything during the process, etc.). If you’re uncertain about it, please wait until the official announcement and release. We are not responsible of any kind of damage or loss of information due to any reason. We only provide the information we found.

General instructions: Firmware Update Procedures (English)

Software (for Mac OS X):

As mentioned on previous articles, firmware version 1.2.5 for Canon EOS 7D was available at Canon UK website and then removed 1 day after we announced it.

According to our friends at Planet5D firmware version 1.2.5 will be released soon:

Just in from canon:

There are no safety issues with 7D firmware including version 1.2.5. The Canon UK web site posted it before they were supposed to, but it will be reposted worldwide within the next few days.

So it seems it was some kind of leak, nothing else. Weird anyway!

Stay tuned!
