Ever since Canon released 24p in a firmware update, DSLR shooters look for significant new features anytime a new firmware is released. However, version 2.0.8 of the 5D Mark II firmware, which was released today, appears to offer only bug fixes — nothing on our wish list. If you’re curious anyway, or want to upgrade to the latest firmware, here’s their breakdown of the updates in 2.0.8:
- Fixes a phenomenon in which movies are not taken at the shooting mode registered in the user’s settings if a shooting mode Aperture priority (or Shutter priority) is registered in any of the camera’s user settings (C1, C2, C3) and the user attempts to shoot a movie.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which the shutter will not release when pressing the shutter button when the auto power off function is set to “on”.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which overexposure occurs when shooting a Live View shooting simulation with the ISO speed set to L.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which the settings of the Speedlite transmitter ST-E2 revert to the default settings when both the camera and the ST-E2 are set to auto power off.
- Fixes a phenomenon in which the Macro Ring Lite (MR-14EX, MT-24EX) and slave flash do not sync while shooting wirelessly.
