Canon Offering New Firmware Update for 5D Mark II Digital SLR

May 25, 2010
Canon has announced a new firmware update for its 5D Mark II digital SLR.

This firmware update ( Version 2.0.7) incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

1. Fixes a phenomenon in which the aperture exhibits abnormal movement when shooting
   movies in manual exposure mode and Aperture Priority AE (Av mode) using some Canon
   lenses (such as macro lenses).

2. Fixes a phenomenon in which the exposure level shown in the LCD panel differs from
   what is shown in the viewfinder when shooting still images in manual exposure mode.

3. Fixes a phenomenon in which the Wireless File Transmitter (WFT-E4 or WFT-E4 II B)
   may not automatically power off when used for FTP transfers.

These phenomena only occur with the Version 2.0.4 and Version 2.0.3 firmware.

The Version 2.0.7 firmware being released this time is for cameras with firmware up to
Version 2.0.4. If the camera's firmware is already Version 2.0.7, it is not necessary
to update the firmware.
