Canon EOS 5D Mark II Firware Update

screencap_20090108_1Firmware Update Version 1.0.7 improves and mitigates the following two types of image quality phenomena that occur under certain shooting conditions.

  1. “Black dot” phenomenon (the right side of point light sources become black)
  2. Vertical banding noise

Firmware Version 1.0.7 is for EOS 5D Mark II cameras with firmware up to version 1.0.6. If the camera’s firmware is already version 1.0.7, it is not necessary to update the firmware.

Notes:
When updating to Firmware Version 1.0.7, please also update the Digital Photo Professional and Picture Style Editor software. Firmware Version 1.0.7 can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. Updates for Digital Photo Professional and Picture Style Editor can be downloaded from the following Web site.

I dont like the idea of that magenta cast on sRAW file. The black dots is no biggie to me so Il probably wait for the “complete” that includes the magenta issue on sRAW’s.

See the complate firmware update page here

  1. I know, right? That magenta cast is really annoying, especially for me since I always shoot sRaw1 when I’m outdoors (22megapixels is only for studio) and combine that to AWB and you get magenta casts in shadows.

    However, the ACR 5.3 doesn’t totally fix this but it seems to reduce the magenta cast in 5d mark II sraw files, it’s worth a try.

    But I, too, am waiting for the next firmware update.
