Re: Firmware 1.2.5 mainly for CF card errors & "Err 02"

Looks like they took the page down, the link now goes to a server error page ?? It was the canon U.K. site, was there this morning ?? Some of the folks on DP review downloaded it.

this was the info;


Changes in this firmware

Firmware Version 1.2.5 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

1.Fixed a rare phenomenon in which there were rare cases where movie files taken could not be opened when repeatedly shooting movies with specific CF cards.
2.Fixed a rare phenomenon in which there were cases where “Err 02″ appeared when repeatedly shooting still images with specific CF cards.
3.Fixed a phenomenon that occurred when using high-capacity (32 GB or greater) CF cards: If either a CF card with only a little available space remaining or the battery was removed and then reinserted into the camera, and then the user attempted to start shooting movies immediately, shooting would stop.
4.Improved the writing/reading speeds when using UDMA 7-compatible CF cards.
5.Fixed a phenomenon that occurred when custom function C.Fn 4-1 was set to assign IS start to the AF stop button on the lens: When used with lenses that do not have an AF stop button, the IS function would not work.
6.Corrected some mistakes in the menu screens displayed in Arabic and Portuguese. (This applies to models in overseas markets. The models for the Japanese market do not display those languages.)

The files are available in the "7d Corrupt Files" thread above this one, it seems the auther of the site downloaded the files and made them available ( 12.4 MB ).

If Canon took them down I am not sure I would use it. If the fix is in the works, whatever they change should be available soon.

If only,

Any other 7d owners feeling a little left out, as far as i understand it, EVERY other canon eos hdslr has manual audio (even t2i with ML)

5d mark 2: manual audio
60d: manual audio
T3i: manual audio
T2i: manual audio (with magic lantern)
1d mk4: dont actually know, does it.?

7d: NO MANAL AUDIO, not much love from canon for 7d owners, im sure it would be an easy thing for them to do, and might even boost sales for 7ds? (prob not, i suspect the video users of 7d make up a small portion of the market)


Still, would be nice, pretty please canon?

I'm actually pretty pissed. tons of cheaper models flooded the market with much better tools for filming .

Give me a live histogram and audio controls and i'm satisfied!

until then, I am seriously considering ditching canon and trying out some of the competitors cameras/lenses
