  2. Corrects the phenomenon of Err70 which occurs with certain combinations of settings.

  3. Corrects the phenomenon in which in very rare cases the shutter can no longer be released.

  4. Enhances reliability of operations for specific custom function settings.

(Previous) Version 1.1.0 improvements: 

1. Support for Wi-Fi Adapter W-E1 has been added.

(Previous) Version 1.0.5 improvements:

  1. Improves AF accuracy when used in combination with the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM lens or EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens.

  2. Fixes a phenomenon in which, in very rare cases, the “Peripheral illumination correction” is applied inconsistently.

  3. Fixes a phenomenon, in which, while performing an EF lens firmware update, the progress bar displayed on the LCD monitor may freeze at 100% even though the update has been completed.

  4. Fixes a processing error in relation to the leap second for the “Geotag information appended to image” and “Log data” GPS functions.

  5. Fixes a phenomenon, where at the time of shooting in very rare cases “Err 70” occurs, or the shutter does not release.

Please note:

After updating the firmware, you should reconfirm any AF Microadjustments you may have set for your EF 16-35mm f/2.8 USM or EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens. 

(Previous) Version 1.0.4 improvements:

  3. Fixes a phenomenon whereby the Picture Style settings are not reflected properly in custom shooting mode (C1/C2/C3).

  4. Fixes a phenomenon whereby, in very rare cases, the shooting date/time in the shooting information of the first picture is not recorded correctly.

  5. Fixes a phenomenon whereby, in very rare cases, when brightness or contrast is automatically corrected by the Auto Lighting Optimizer function, there is noise in JPEG images.
