Thanks for getting this up, I check this site everyday for info and feedback on the 7D.

To download and install, or wait a few days and see if there are any glitches.

Yes, as far as I know whatever the latest firmwire you up date to, will include the previous updates.

Re: 7D 1.2.5 firmware back now on USA site

I am extremely underwhelmed .... My 7D will remain on the shelf I think.

I waited in the hopes Canon would address obvous shortcomings or at least some user complaints that firmware could fix - but I doubt they will arrive now. Even a histogram in video mode would make me pick this up again....

Re: 7D 1.2.5 firmware back now on USA site

exactly, histogram and manual sound is about all that would keep me from jumping ship from canon and moving over to their competitors

Re: 7D 1.2.5 firmware back now on USA site

I already moved - just gnaws at me that the two items you mention would not cost anything to add... so where is Canon's motive? I now they have been bombarded with requests.

The idea that you "almost' make a camera perfect goes against their marketing creedo that why should they when it would slow down products sales for the next camera that may fix the shorcomings!

Re: 7D 1.2.5 firmware back now on USA site

Bruce - I am on the fence waiting.

I shot a doc for the last 12 mths in China using the 7D with very mixed results. While it was great to move fast and light, the 7D was a pig to use and when I got back last month I sold it immediately with all my small frame lenses!! I did this as a small protest in my lapse in judgement. I will keep my L glass just in case the 5III is worth getting.
However, currently I have a GH2 with some 4/3rd Olympus lenses and I love it - but it will never be my main camera.
I am between films, so it's not a worry at this point. I am waiting for the FS-100 right now which I will buy for sure. I come from the EX1 and EX3 but hated the size and form. Now the FS-100 looks great - small size in 35mm!
When the Epic-S arrives that will be my choice - until then its FS-100 all the way.

Re: 7D 1.2.5 firmware back now on USA site

Yes it is.

If I need a camera now I would go for the Sony F3 but the FS-100 is less than half the price with almost no difference in image, so I am waiting!
It feels like the Red's will never get released.... in reality the Epic-S will be at least a year away I think.

So FS-100 is a great stop gap for me. In a small format shape yet it beats any image from a DSLR inc 5D!
