Re: New EOS 7D Firmware now available

Daniel, I have it set on faithful right now but I see it in standard as well. The bad news is it is showing up in the recorded footage. It has made my camera useless for video. I am going to try to load the old firmware back on the camera then test it again.

Re: New EOS 7D Firmware now available

This is hard to believe that the banding is not an isolated incident related to an anomaly with a single camera. Surely Canon would have picked this banding issue up in testing.

Think I will wait to see how this turns out. I am wondering why we are not hearing this from many others?

Highlight tone priority was the culprit. Switched it off and the banding went away.

Re: New EOS 7D Firmware now available

I believe that HTP has caused some banding problems in the 7D from the beginning and should be turned off for shooting video. One more reason to have a separate body for shooting stills if you are capturing both video and photos.

Re: New EOS 7D Firmware now available

Hi guys, I have to confirm what Ron already found out about the Highlight Tone Priority feature, it produced quite alot of banding, switched it off and no problem now, everything works fine.

Re: New EOS 7D Firmware now available

Good catch Ron. I guess you have to make records of your settings before doing the update so you can compare what the camera is doing that is new and different settings wise.

Re: New EOS 7D Firmware now available

So far so good here as well. Also trying out a new Rokinon 14mm Lens. Camera asked me to make sure I had a lens attached to it and only would enter movie mode after hitting the start stop button twice. Not sure if this is any different operation than in the past.

Same as usual, because the lens does not communicate with the camera, the camera thinks that it is no lens attached. In video mode the mirror is flipped up and the sensor is exposed (and unprotected) so the camera will make sure that you know what you are doing…. That my understanding of the massage…

I did my update a few days ago and all is fine for me too…

Re: New EOS 7D Firmware now available

I must be a complete idiot..... but I can't seem to find any audio settings anywhere in the menu. I did get a lot of the other updates (in-camera RAW, max ISO) but no audio anything? What am I missing here?

nevermind.... I just downloaded the update a second time, and reloaded it into the camera, and all is good!

Look in the forth menu from the left, forth selection down, it says sound recording.

Re: New EOS 7D Firmware now available

yep.... wasn't there the first time I downloaded the firmware. weird thing is the other features were! I checked and double checked both in the stills menu and the video menu. nada. BUT, when I downloaded the firmware update a second time, and loaded that one into the camera, it was there. go figure.
